If you have not heard the exciting news yet please let us inform you. The Wisconsin District has added two new people to their team. Don and Cheri Walloch have agreed to take on the responsibilities of Assistant District Directors. They will be a great asset to the team as they bring with them a vast knowledge of GWRRA with them. They have served in many roles beginning at the chapter level then on to the district level then further up to the region level. Don and Cheri are also your District Ride Coordinators and put together the rides that were offered at this year’s District Rally. We congratulate them and thank them for stepping up to fulfill this important position within the District.
The District Rally held in September was a wonderful time. We had members attend from all over the country. Some from as far away as Montana. Another couple joined us from Canada. As well as a lot of our friends from Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois. If you had the opportunity to attend you found some interesting games to play with one of the favorites being Chuck A Duck. There were a dozen or so that showed off their bikes in the bike show which was brought back this year after a long absence. It is always great to see the bikes all shined up and on display. As mentioned earlier Don and Cheri led two great rides. One on Friday and one on Saturday. I am sure the Saturday ride will be talked about for years to come. Just ask Don. The Friday night DJ played a lot of favorites from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. Saturday’s entertainment of the Roast and Toast had many busting a gut laughing and having a great time. If you have ideas for next year’s rally please share those thoughts with us as the planning has already started.
November 3rd is the date that is set for the next District OPs meeting. The venue has changed this time around. It will be held at the Hotel Mead in Wisconsin Rapids. The address is 451 E. Grand Ave. Wisconsin Rapids, 54494. This is a more central location and we are hoping to see more members there. We cannot stress enough that the District OPs meetings are not just for the Chapter Officers but for any Member that is interested in participating. We encourage everyone to take the time at your gatherings and discuss attending the OPs meeting. There will be a lot of information to be shared and the more members we can reach the better the lines of communication will be. We hope to see your there.
Remember Participate, Participate, Participate. Stay safe and have FUN!!
