 FROM THE DIRECTORS:

WOW                                                                                                                                                             It’s March already.                                                                                                                                      We had a good month of February. The weather was pretty mild, and we had some good times together. Those of us who attended the Chili Dump lunch on the 23rd enjoyed the food and fun we had. We can only hope that March turns out to be as good a month too.                                  We’re really looking forward to our annual Winter Get-Away on the 6th through the 8th. It’s always a good time. Every year it seems Christin comes up with more fun and interesting things to do than the year before. We always have a good time playing Sheepshead, and enjoying a few “adult beverages” too. This year the chapter will buy supper from the motel restaurant one of the nights we’re there. That’s one of the benefits we’ll reap from the hard work we put in at the annual fund raiser in June.                                                                                                                Already in March the days are getting noticeably longer and while it’s still winter with April around the corner we at least are within sight of Spring. We can almost always find some good days for getting the bike out in April. This year we’ll be able to overcome some of the pain of tax day with our April dinner ride which falls on the 15th. At least there’s something enjoyable happening on that day.                                                                                                                          Hope everyone has a great month of March and joins us for some of our fun events.

 FROM THE DIRECTORS:

The first month of 2020 is behind us now, so we’re on the downslide toward spring. That’s one of the things we have to concentrate during this long cold winter month of February. Even though it’s the shortest month of the year for some reason it seems to last forever, and it will inevitably be COLD.                                                                                                                                  One thing we do to make the month a little more interesting and fun is our annual Chili Dump lunch before our Feb. social. The chili is a little different every year because we always have some different people contribute. The idea of the chili dump is that everyone brings their favorite chili recipe and they’re all mixed in a Nesco. Each couple is asked to bring a quart of chili and each individual is asked to bring a pint.                                                                                  Between lunch and the social we’ll have an interesting presentation by Bob & Ginny Schattschneider.                                                                                                                                      Once we get through February the days will be getting longer and we’ll actually be noticeably closer to getting some spring weather. It will be time to get outside and get rid of the usual “cabin fever”.                                                                                                                                            We’re looking forward to seeing you at one or all of our February events.

JANUARY 2020 EVENTS:

1.Wednesday Jan. 15, 2020 ROMEO lunch ride. This month we’ll meet at 11:30 at The Cheesecake Factory in Mayfair Mall. Mayfair is located on Hwy 100 north of North Ave. 2.Wednesday Jan. 22.

We’ll meet at 5:30 as usual.                                                                                                                                       3. Sunday January 26. January Social at 3:00 PM at WaterStone Bank located at 6560 S. 27th St.

 FROM THE DIRECTORS:

First of all we want to wish everyone a blessed Christmas. We hope you’ll all be able to spend lots of time during the holidays with all your loved ones and friends. That’s the best possible thing to do at this time of year.

Because this time of year is often insanely busy, and because we all want to reserve as much time as possible for family, we are continuing the tradition of having very little chapter activity in December. We’ll have a ROMEO breakfast ride to Miss Katie’s diner on the 11th, but that will be the only chapter event for the month.

In January we’ll get back into the swing of things with a ROMEO lunch ride on the 15th and we have tentatively scheduled our annual holiday party on the 22nd instead of a monthly dinner ride. All the information is located above.

Again, we wish everyone a merry and blessed Christmas and a happy and safe New Year.

 FROM THE DIRECTORS:                                                                                                                        Since we live in Wisconsin, the riding season is pretty much over for now, but the holidays are rapidly approaching so we’ll have plenty to do to stay busy.                                                       During November we continue our regular chapter events. We’ll have a ROMEO lunch ride and our monthly dinner ride. PLEASE SEE THE INFORMATION ABOVE CONCERNING THE CHANGE OF VENUE. (We’re told the staff reported for work one day and the doors were locked and never re-opened.)                                                                                                                                                     We’ll hold our social on the last Sunday of the month as usual.                                                            As you can see from the above information, however, we greatly curtail our events for the month of December. Everyone is just too busy preparing for the holidays and then celebrating with family and friends to spare much time for non-essentials.                                                       We want to wish everyone a pleasant and enjoyable Thanksgiving day, and if you’re so inclined a crazy but money saving Black Friday.                                                                                                  We hope to see you all at our November events.                                                                                      Rich & Sharon Winkler – Chapter G director
