FROM THE DIRECTORS:

Wow is the summer flying by. Of course when you’re a Wisconsin motorcycle rider it always does. Then Winter lasts FOREVER!

We have some busy months coming up.

To start with a couple of our members are planning to join the Minn./Wisc. Districts ride to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan from the 9th – 12th.  It sounds like it will be a great ride and lots of fun.

Shortly after we get back from the UP we have our annual Corn roast/Picnic on the 18th. We’ve again challenged all the chapters in the state to an athletic competition in Jartz and Ladder Ball, with the beautiful Chapter Challenge trophy at stake.

 

 

 

We’ve been assured that at least chapter N will bring a group of aspiring athletes to try to take back the trophy. We would of course love to see members from many other chapters join us as well. We will supply the brats, buns, soda, and corn. Everyone else is asked to bring the traditional Wisconsin “dish to pass”.

We’d appreciate it if anyone who wants to join us for the picnic would let us know a week in advance so we can know how much food to buy.

Then in Sept. we have one of the most anticipated Chapter events of every year. It’s the annual Fall Fling to Konkapot lodge near Bowler WI. It’s always a great time for relaxing and just having a good time with our fellow members. This year, as usual, we’ll have  a Friday night shrimp boil and Saturday night turkey fry and ham bake. This year, however the chapter will provide all the food, so members won’t be charged anything for the meals.

 As can be seen from the information above, August and September are going to be busy months. The emphasis the national leadership wants put on more riding and less of the “other stuff” seems to be taking hold here in Wisconsin.

We’re really looking forward to seeing many chapter G members, and people from many other chapters, join us this summer and fall and really turn it into a great time for riding and making friends.
