From The Director:

Happy New Year Chapter M

 

First of all I want to say “thank you” to all those who participated in our December gatherings.

At both the Pizza Ranch and the Holiday Party we had a good turn out

The Holiday Party, the food was good, the gift exchange was interesting, and everyone went home winners. Thank you to those who planned the party, donated prizes and gift baskets. The Guy/Gal gift exchange was a big hit. 

 

After all the Gifts, parties, candy and food we took part in during the past few weeks, I am ready for a rest how about you. But we all know that is not going to happen.

 

What will your New Year’s resolution be? 

 

This is the time of year we are stuck in the house with not much going on. Best time to get out the map, GPS, or whatever device you favor and start making plans for some fun rides next summer.

 

Check out our Chapter M Calendar for 2019, it is jammed packed with fun rides, some for a couple of hours, others for a weekend, and there is even one for a long trip to Yellowstone.

If you’re looking for adventure, friends and fun, make a plan and join in on some of these rides.

 

Speaking of the 2019, the Chapter calendar, website or Facebook page will have any updates, contact information and flyers as they become available.

Here is the Information so far on Trip to Yellowstone 2019, from Jerry Hempe:

To be sung to Beverly Hillbillies:

This here’s a story about a man named Tod,

A lonely Winger, which we thought kind of odd. 

Then one day he was looking at some maps,

That’s when a clue fell right into his lap.

Yellowstone that is…

Out west… Wyoming’s best.

The next thing you know, Tod wanted to go there,

The Kin folk said, “Tod get away from here”.

Yellowstone is where you should be roaming,

So he loaded up the bike, and he rode to Wyoming…

Yellowstone that is…..

Wildlife…. Waterfalls.

Tod Hellman and Jerry Hempe are putting together a trip to Yellowstone and the dates will be August 15-25, 2019.

To help with the long miles on the way out, approximately 1203 miles, Tod is leaving on Thursday and riding about 300-350 miles per day.  Jerry will be leaving on Friday and riding about 450-500 miles a day.  Whatever mileage you feel comfortable with, is when you leave.

We will all meet out in Yellowstone and enjoy the beautiful scenery and sights. While there, some of the highlights are, seeing Yellowstone Park, Grand Tetons, Jackson, and Bear tooth Pass. On our way home we will ride about 350 -375 miles per day, doing some sightseeing on the way home.

If you are interested in the awesome trip, please let Tod or Jerry know.
