From The Director:

Hello WI-M members.

To start off I would like to thank everyone that ventured out for our January Social. We had a good turn out for breakfast in Kimberly. Even one member rode in on his bike, I won’t say who but I know him very well.

We are heading into February, the shortest month of the year….Spring will be here sometime in the not to distant future…

Our next social is on February 9, we will meet at The Oak Street Café 926 Oak Street in Depere which is off I-41 at the Main Street Exit, take Main St to the east, left at the first set of lights is Oak St. and watch for their sign.

We meet at 9AM for breakfast and then after we will discuss what events we have on the calendar for the upcoming riding season. Especially those that need motel reservation or head count of who will be participating in these events.

Then on February 16, TEAM Motorsports in Depere is sponsoring a Bus trip to the Chicago Bike Show. Please call them at 920-983-8626 if you are interested in going. Last time I checked they had 11 seats still available.

The bus fare is $35.00 per person and tickets to the Bike Show are sold separately. This information can be found on Team’s  website at https://www.team-motorsports.com, this will be an all day trip, bus leaves at 7AM and will return around 8PM.

 

Also on February 16 Chapter is having their Fundraiser for the year. It will be a Pool Tournament.

Held at the Vet Center E4710 County Trunk BB in Menominee, WI. Yes that is in Wisconsin so don’t head north to Michigan. Any interest in this contact Greg @ chapter-m@gwrra-wi.org or let him know at the February Social.

 

As you may or may not know, we have been able to set up a Medic First Aid class in our area on February 23, 2019 in Winneconne. It will be held at the Winneconne Fire Station, they have graciously agreed to let us use their classroom for the morning. We have it scheduled for 8AM to Noon. The cost is $20.00 which you can pay the day of the class. We have three slots open yet, so if you are thinking about going contact Michele at Michele.Covill@thedacare.org. The address for the class again is 550 W Main Street Winneconne, WI 54986

 

Just a quick reminder for those going on the Yellowstone trip and you know who you are, you need call on your rooms. An e-mail on this information was sent out the end of December as follows:

 

“A note from Tod Hellman and Jerry Hempe:  For those going on the Yellowstone trip. We would like to invite everyone to a get together on Saturday, March 2 at 3PM to meet the riders you haven’t met yet, and go over some of the details of the trip.

Jerry has volunteered his house at 1029 Ashbury CT Fond du Lac as a gathering place,  We will talk about the trip first, then anyone who would like to jump in the pool can do so…yes it is an indoor pool.

A meal will follow, we will have Sloppy Joes (BBQ beef) and we are asking you to bring a dish to pass and your beverage of choice.

 

Here are a few things we need to know sooner than the gathering at Jerry’s.

1: are you riding out with Tod on Thursday or Jerry on Friday.( need to plan motels and food stops)

2. Will you be riding back home with us?

3.Will you be able to make it to the gathering on /2/2019?

Even if you have answered these questions, please e-mail to both:

TLhome12@yahoo.co  and jerryhempe@gmail.com

 

Thanks,Tod & Jerry”

 

Chapter M Lake Superior/Canada Trip: So far here is what we have:

 

Date: Sunday July 14-Friday July 18, 2019   NOTE: DATE CHANGED

Meet at: Julie’s Café on Velp Avenue in Green Bay at 7AM

 

I have found a place to stay the first night of the Lake Superior Trip, http://campsixtyone.com/bunkhouse.html

 

Please reserve your room and let me know when you have, that way I will have an accurate count of rooms going forward.

The rooms are $85 for a singe queen and $105 for a double queen. There are 4 singles available, and we have 5 couples. Perhaps there are two couples that would like to share a room, for a lower price. Otherwise, the last couple to book will get a higher one. I have blocked these rooms for our group for 90 days, but please make them right away so I know how many are going. 

We will discuss more on this at the future Socials but right now we need get the reservations taken care of.

 

I know this is quite a long newsletter but we have so much coming up and it will be here before you know it. So please bare with me as I want this information to get out to all our members. Thank you

 

Visit our website or Facebook page for updates and let us know you are going, interested or not going to be able to attend. This helps planning on locations and food if needed.

 

Thank You

From The Chapter M Ride Coordinator:

January is slowly leaving us behind. February is ahead of us and there are some exciting things in the horizon.

As usual, we have our monthly Social. It will be on February 9 at The Oak Street Café, located at 926 Oak Street in West DePere. Start time is 9AM.

The second event is The Chicago Bike Show on February 16. You can contact Team Motorsports to see if there are any spots available on the bus. Tickets for the show are extra. They will probably help you get the tickets if you don’t know how.

 

For those not going to the Chicago Bike Show, there is a Fundraiser being put on by Chapter S on the same day. It is a Pool Tournament, with the location being at The Vet Center. The address is E4710 County Trunk BB, Menominee, Wi 54751. This is in Wisconsin NOT Michigan.
