It’s a Rally!
I received an email the other day from The Region director Bruce Watkins, (ok I regularly receive emails form him), but this one really made me smile. GWRRA national, has been doing some changes, and for the good. They are looking more at the chapter’s level, and what they can do to help change things for the better. With membership not as high as in the past, they are looking for ways for members to stay active.
Everyone is trying to fit a lot into their lives nowadays. More work, family time, and of course riding time, it is hard to fit it all in. Then we add in Wing Ding, Reno Rendezvous, Region and District, and chapter rides, where do we fit it all in? National is working with us to try and help keep events and such exciting for us all.
So what was the email I received? Here it is: National has informed us that no longer does the term "convention" need to be used to describe a Rally. A Rally is a Rally!
I no longer need to say the word “rally” in secret. Do not read this wrong, I am not making fun of National, I am making fun of whomever made us change the word to “convention” in the first place.
So please plan on attending our 2015 District RALLY in September. At your next social, your chapter director will have the pre-registration forms. Here are some of the highlights we have for this year’s RALLY: Friday afternoon, we are taking a boat ride on the Upper Dells Boat Tour. This is about a 2 hour excursion with 2 shore stops. We, the District will provide sub sandwiches during the ride. We will have a couple of guided rides both days. NEW this year, we added a Saturday night Dinner and a Show. Come enjoy a nice buffet dinner and watch the talent show. Get your chapter together, or do a solo act, we are looking for talent for the show.
We hope to see you all at the RALLY September 18-19, 2015
