From The Directors:


Hello to all From Chapter C


Just a month into the New Year and Chapter C is off and running.  Our leadership team met in December to establish the direction and goals for Chapter C for the upcoming year.


Our January Social had a great attendance with a total of 32 people! Thirty members of Chapter C, one member from Chapter E and one guest;  the granddaughter of Bob and Jill Bradley, Miss Addie. The highlight of our Social was awarding Couple of the Year to our treasurer Tod Hellman and his wife Christine.  I enumerated their many contributions to Chapter C and the District. An attitude of responsibility, volunteerism, great humor and FUN is always evident with this couple. Their current and past efforts  shine in contributing to the esprit de corps attitude that permeates Chapter C.  Once again, “Congratulations”.  


To aid in relieving the Winter Doldrums an enjoyable dinner was had on January 16 with 25 people in attendance at the Sunset on the Water Supper Club in Fond du Lac. Again, a great social get together which helps to alleviate some of the symptoms of PMS (parked motorcycle syndrome).


If you have not yet seen our revamped website, take a look!  Lori Schneider has put in many hours in updates and her efforts show.  Among those changes are a new photo of the Chapter C Leadership Team, an updated Mission Statement, a new section entitled “Who We Are And What We Do”,  and an updated google calendar for 2019. 


Linda and I have sent out to our Assistant Directors Bruce and Bev Roehrborn the updated email list of Chapter C. They are responsible for coordinating our weekly Ice Cream Rides, a longstanding successful Chapter C event.


Linda and I have coordinated efforts with Mary Randall our Membership Enhancement Person, to enable better tracking of retaining membership, and soliciting new members. Our Chapter C members were given our 2019 brochures.  This new brochure contains contact information about our Leadership Team, our mission statement, and a complete schedule of all the activities of Chapter C for 2019. Placed in the trunk of our Wings, what a great marketing piece for GWRRA Chapter C.


Tod Hellman our treasurer is busy wearing two hats as Treasurer of both Chapter C, and the State GWRRA organization.


We cannot leave out Jerry Hempe, a very avid motorcyclist, who already has been active in promoting our motorcycle rides.  As our ride coordinator, he has been active in assisting ride leaders in their responsibilities to assure a fun and safe ride.


Unfortunately currently it is time to dream about the impending activities of motorcycling,  as here in Wisconsin at this time of the year mother nature is not kind to our 2 and 3 wheel vehicles. So go out to your garage, sit on the bike and make those “vroom, vroom, noises”.  Spring is on it’s way.

Enjoy the ride,


Leo and Linda Prentice
