From The Directors

The riding season is upon us! Let's get out and enjoy Wisconsin's beautiful scenery, and visit with your GWRRA friends. If you take a look at the Chapter calendar of events, there is something going on just about every week or weekend from now until the end of October. Come on out and enjoy the season while it is here. Make the most of the time mother nature allows us to be outdoors.

Our Brat Fry Fundraiser on April 30th & May 1st looks to be well staffed - THANK-YOU to all who volunteered to work a shift. Everyone else can still help out by stopping by to grab lunch or an early dinner. We will be at Festival Foods in Fond Du Lac this year.

Jerry's maintenance day has been moved to Saturday 5/15. This is a great opportunity to perform a little maintenance on your bike, or install some of those accessories you received for Christmas. You will be doing the work, but their will be friends to help you out if needed. After we are finished, there is a ride planned to join the District Dust-Off camping event in West Bend.

Speaking of Dust-Off, if you are planning on participating in the District Tour Sheet challenge, Dust-Off is one of the wild card events. This can take the place of a Chapter visit. Remember, you have a chance to win $100 if you complete the challenge. Tour sheets are available on the Chapter or District website. The Advanced Rider Course (5/22) or the Trike Rider Course (5/21) is also a wild card, and a great opportunity to get some skills updated.

The 1st Fortunate Souls Ride of the year is scheduled for Thursday 5/20, and our 1st Ice Cream ride is scheduled for Tuesday 5/25. Again, there is a boatload of events scheduled for the riding season. Check out the Chapter calendar on our website and watch your email for all the latest updates.

May is also Motorcycle Awareness Month. Not only does this apply to 4 wheelers, but as a rider, you can help protect yourself. Being alert, not being distracted (phones, electronics, etc.) also applies to us riders. We need our full attention on the road and what other drivers are doing. Safety gear is another item that we, as riders, have control of. Make sure it is in good shape, and you are wearing it. Our Chapter C Shiny Side Up (parking lot practice) was a great way to practice skills, but the ARC/TRC Courses will teach you even more ways to deal with situations that we might encounter.
