So Far, So Good

Month two and I’m still standing, not a bad start!  And speaking of two’s, then deuces really are wild – so far I’ve attended 2 officer’s meetings, 2 chapter meetings, 2 benefit rides, 2 fantastic dinner rides (13 members in August and 20 in September – WooHoo!),  two dealership events, 2 Harley’s Heroes planning events and 1 -  2008 Illinois State HOG Rally coordination meeting!  Needless to say, it’s been a busy couple of months.  But it’s supposed to be that way in an active chapter.  A big special thanks to everybody who has worked so hard and diligently to make all the chapter events successful!


Even though it’ll soon be October, the Harley’s Heroes committee is busy contacting various organizations to get their participation to make this special event a big success.   Harley’s Heroes will be at the dealership on October 13th and 14th.   The culmination will be on Sunday, October 14th with the police escorted “Rolling Thunder” ride from the dealership to Lakeview Memorial Gardens to participate in the closing ceremonies of the Traveling Wall.  This is an open event, so if you know anybody who rides, invite them to join us.  Bike staging begins at 11:00 AM with kickstands up at 1:15 PM.  Oh yeah, if you’d like to help out for even just an hour or two, let me know – we can always use your help.  Here’s an early “hat’s off” to those already working the event!


In my article last month I made mention that I was by  no means a miracle maker, and not to expect a lot of changes right from the get-go.  I also mentioned that changes, especially good changes, take a little time to formulate, but are usually worth the wait.  I noted earlier that in August we had 13 members on the dinner ride and 20 of us for the September ride.  The August ride was the last one from the old dealership and the September ride was the inaugural ride from the new dealership.   As the 20 of us got together, inside the dealership with other customers watching us, we voted on a couple of places to ride to.  We chose the 17th Street B-B-Q at the Shooting Complex in Sparta.  Head Road Captain Linda Jacob did a fantastic job getting us there, even if did have to stop in Marissa and let a certain Webmaster get gas!  We had a total of 14 bikes, including three lady riders and Glen with his sidecar.  And from the looks on the people’s faces at the Complex when we arrived, we must’ve looked pretty impressive pulling in as a group!
