Wisconsin District Directors

Welcome to our District's Website, your Gold Wing Road Riders Association destination in Wisconsin!  Enjoy the sites and riding available here.  Take a look at the many events and opportunities to share in what the state has to offer.

Who is ready to have a GREAT time at Wing Ding 40?  Wing Ding is just around the corner and promises to be a fun time.  The Wisconsin District will be working the ticket sales booth at Wing Ding this year in Knoxville. If you will be attending and would like to volunteer to help on Wednesday August 29th please let us know. We will only need to cover 1 day and there will be three shifts, 8:00am-11:00am, 11:00am-2:00pm and 2:00pm-5:00pm. You will need to be there 15 minutes prior to your shift for explanation of how the ticket packages are sold. We need 10 volunteers for each shift. So please if you are interested in helping out, please let your Chapter Director or us know ( Thank you all in advance for helping and we'll see you at Wing Ding!

Below is a letter from National regarding costumes for the ‘Star Wars at the Disco’ on Thursday, August 30th, from 5:00 – 8 p.m. in the Ballroom of the Knoxville Convention Center.


Would you please put out to your group going to WD (use the ARL we are providing you with WD registrations) and then to your Chapter Directors that the company that is offering the WD Costume rentals for the GWRRA StarWars at the Disco must take the reservations for the StarWars costumes no later than Saturday 8/11.  See their information below.

They will have some 70's costumes available up until the event but very limited StarWars.  So please get the word out so no one is left out of the fun.




Designs by De Wayne Costume Shop will be renting both 70's and Star Wars attire for the GWRRA "Star Wars at the Disco" dinner and dance. They will set-up at the Knoxville Convention Center to rent costumes for the Thursday evening party. The average cost for costumes will be $40, which includes tax. This is a great way to have all participate without taking up valuable space in trailers or on bikes! 

De Wayne is requesting to have a 30-day advanced notice from attendees. The contact information is:  designsbydewaynecostumesh and/or 865.804.6532 and the website is:  https://www.


Sharon wanted me to remind everyone that the Wisconsin Rally is coming up also.  The 2018 Wisconsin District Rally  ”Luau Party” will be here before we know it.  September 14 & 15 at the Wintergreen Resort, 60 Glasser Rd, Lake Delton Wi.  We are busy working on all the details for a fun filled weekend.  Be sure to mention GWRRA when making your reservations at 800-648-4765.  Please pre-register by August 18th.  Check the District web site for the registration form, 

We need your support to make the Rally successful!  We are asking each Chapter to provide a basket with a $50.00 value, for the basket raffle.  We will once again have a competition for the Chapter that has sold the most tickets in their bucket.  Your Chapter can win their Charter fees paid by the District.  Good luck to everyone.  We always look forward to seeing the creativity that is put into making your baskets.

 We will be having the dinner again this year on Saturday the 15th.  For those that pre-register the cost is $6.00.  After August 18th the price is $11.00.  Please get those registrations in early to take advance of the great discount.  As soon as we have the entire menu set, we will get that information out to you.

After the dinner and before closing, we will be doing a “Toast & Roast” your favorite Chapter Member.  We need 3 to 4 Members from each Chapter to participate in this fun and light hearted activity.    When we each volunteer to participate, we all have fun!  So look around your Chapters and find those Members that you’d love to honor and let’s have some fun!  No big speeches, we promise it will be harmless.  Just some wholesome fun!
