From the Director

Greetings to everyone, welcome to our new members and thanks to everyone that attended the June meeting.

             As I mentioned in the last chapter meeting be careful going through towns because some local police are really cracking down on excessive noise especially loud motorcycle pipes.  Some towns even want to confiscate your motorcycle if they consider your pipes are too loud so ease up on the throttle a bit.

             On Saturday, July 22nd I wasn’t able to attend the dinner ride but was able to attend the bowling benefit for our member Jon Calabra who had a stroke a couple of months ago.  I visited with Jon for a while at the benefit and he is doing much better and is on the mend.  He is back at home and has physical therapy 3 times a week.  He indicated to me that he plans on attending a chapter meeting in the near future.  At the last chapter meeting the membership approved to donate $100.00 to Jon to help pay medical expenses.  We all wish Jon a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him at a chapter meeting in the near future.

             As everyone knows the chapter picnic was cancelled due to storm damage at the Horse Shoe Lake Park.  At the next officers meeting we’ll decide when and where we’ll have the picnic so stay tuned.

             Last month I stated I’d tell you about the trip to Billings, MT for the National HOG Rally so look for the article in this newsletter.  Stay cool and ride safe.
