From The Director:

Hi Everyone

Happy 4th of July. Summer is here and it is hot. Great weather for riding but remember to protect yourself from the heat. We have had some great rides so far and hopefully many more this season. Again we would like to say Thank You to everyone who has led a ride or is going to lead a ride. It takes everyone to make the chapter what it is. I think we had a first on the Black Hills South Dakota ride. I think that was the first ride where they visited a Car Wash. Great idea who ever thought of it. Any port in a storm. Hope to hear more about the trip when the group return. Sorry we had to cancel the Ice Cream Ride to Frogg’s. But you cannot control Mother Nature.

If you were not at the Breakfast Social for June in Fond du Lac we had a member step up to take the Ride Coordinators position for the Chapter. Jerry Hempe said yes to accepting the position. Thank you very much.

Again, here is a plea for a second Assistant Chapter Director. We need to have someone voluntary to fill this position so Leo & Linda have an Assistant when they take over the Chapter Directors position.

For anyone that is going to Wing Ding. From the District Director Frank & Sharon Jackson “If you are planning to go, there may be a chance to help out for a short time.  Let us know if you plan to go and we’ll get details on how we might support GWRRA and have some fun”.

That’s all for now and hope to see everyone at the next event.

Thanks and more to come next month.

Ride Smart & Be Safe!

Thank You, every one for the help and support.

The Educator:

RIDING GEAR and RIDING SAFELY.  Riding gear is a very personal choice.  I know that someone will correct me on this, but whenever I am out riding I have yet to see a Gold Winger not wearing a helmet.  Kudos to all those that do, and boo-hoo to those that don’t.  Yeah, I know, Wisconsin law says that you don’t have to: but, it’s your choice – your life – your brains laying in the middle of the road.  And no lie, I actually saw a guy riding a moped scooter last week wearing full riding safety gear!  Y-E-S!!  Jackets, jeans, boots, and full gloves also provide protection from the elements beside the safety factor, too.  There are lots of gear choices for warm or cold temperatures and also rain gear, too.  Another concept of safety is “riding your own ride”.  How many times have ya heard that!  There’ll be a lot of group trips and casual rides coming up during the next few months.  If you are riding in a group that is traveling faster than you are comfortable with… tell them!   You can always meet up with the group down the road or at the ride’s final destination.  Never let someone talk you into going faster over your comfort level.  In hot weather remember to drink lots of fluids as you ride and make more frequent stops along the way so you remain well hydrated.  Colas and sweet liquids are NOT always the best refreshment when it is hot.  Good ‘ole plain COLD water is the best.  SAFE riding gear, and SAFE riding habits are Important to all of us.
