From The Director:


Hello Everyone!  


As some of you found out at the November Social, I, April Johnsted, will be helping out with Chapter Q until we can find someone from the Wausau area to step up as the new Chapter Director. I know from meeting many of you over the years that your chapter is a FANTASTIC chapter and I am willing to help out the best I can to keep this chapter moving forward.  All I ask of you is to participate.


In the near future I will be sending out a letter to all members of the chapter, asking for your input on what you want from your chapter. GWRRA is about friends for FUN, Safety and Knowledge and I want to assist you in getting the most out of your membership. I want you to be able to experience all you can with Chapter Q.


At the November Social we discussed the Social calendar for 2015. I would like to add some rides and events to this calendar. If you have a special place you would like to ride to, or an event you would like to have added to the calendar, please feel free to contact me and I will be more than happy to add it to the Events Calendar. I will send each of you a copy of the Social calendar in the near future.


Saturday, January 10, the District once again is hosting an afternoon of FUN playing WINGO!  For those that have never attended Wingo, it is played just like bingo but with your Gold WING friends.  Bring a door prize or non-perishable food item to receive extra game cards.  WINGO will take place at Ledgeview Lanes at 170 Prairie Road, Fond du Lac. Free soda and snacks will be provided. This is a perfect opportunity to meet more of your fellow Gold Wingers from around the state. This event will take place from 1pm to 4pm.  I hope to see you there.


Our January Social will be on Sunday, January 11, at 8:30am.  Yup, a Breakfast Social! This will take place at Emma Krumbees at 2101 N. Mountain Road, Wausau. It is located just off Hwy 29 at exit 190. I hope to see you there!
