From The Directors

From the Directors:

 

Happy New Year to Everyone!

 

In keeping with the continual legacy of Chapter C, once again we have had a very successful year.  It did not happen accidently, but rather from the efforts of everyone.  Rides, socials, and numerous other activities were filled with fun, excitement, and just good times.  From a personal viewpoint, we have had several members with various health problems, that certainly affected their lives, the lives of others, and their own peace of mind.  Currently it seems these members are on the mend, and 2020 will be a year of healing and tranquility.  Hopefully everyone will be back on the road, enjoying the freedom that motorcycling brings.

 

Our last social activity for the year was our Christmas party.  There were 32-chapter members at our celebratory event.  A “thank you” goes out to my wife and codirector, Linda for all her work in coordinating the event.  The venue was transformed into a festive setting, and the catered food was excellent.  In addition, Linda’s brother Mike Flood, a musician, accompanied us with his voice and ukulele in singing numerous Christmas songs.  A very nice time was had by all and it was a great way for Chapter C to enjoy the comradery that has existed for years.  

 

If you are like us, I am sure you are looking forward to the New Year.  In the midst of January, sometimes it becomes difficult to deal with PMS (parked motorcycle syndrome). Some palliative measures are to sit back and read about motorcycling.  The internet offers a plethora of items including forums and you tube videos.  For those individuals with an extreme case of PMS, go out to the garage and sit on the motorcycle and make those Vroom noises…I am in the midst of converting my son’s Honda Grom Motorcycle into an Ice Motorcycle via help from you tube.  Purchased knobby tires, and mounted homemade studs into the tires.  Waiting patiently for a couple of parts, and then it is off to Lake Winnebago to see if the experiment works.  Stay tune to our little blog next month when we give you an update of our new endeavor.

 

The Chapter C calendar is chocked full of events for the upcoming year.  We hopefully will have our calendar in a brochure format at this year’s first Social.  This is a great tool to keep on your bike as you meet new potential members out on the road.

 

Once again, a healthy and prosperous New Year.

 

Enjoy the Ride,

 

Leo and Linda
