From The Directors

From the Directors:


The planning paid off.  Our annual Brat Fry was a great success.  Chapter C used it's basic yearly formula.  This past Winter we were able to secure dates at the the two Pick'N Save Stores in Fond du Lac.  In support of the local community, we contacted the Fond du Lac Police K-9 Unit and agreed to donate a portion of our profits to them.  The local Reporter Newspaper published our mission in their upcoming events. Chapter C through our member and treasurer Tod Hellman secured new professionally printed signs, which gave us great visibility.

We collected record donations from the community to donate to the FDL K-9 unit.  In additional Chapter C donated a portion of profits to the FDL K-9 Unit.  Our fundraising efforts met the goal of meeting Chapter Expense for the upcoming year.

As in past years Chapter C's membership gave 100% in providing services in serving great food to hundreds of people.  Two long successful fun days!  We were able to possibly recruit a couple new members to Chapter C.  A large "Thank You" goes out to the Sister Wisconsin Chapters for their support.  We had individuals from Chapters M, N, H, and other WI Chapters, visit one or both of our sites.

Tuesday, May 20th, at 4:30 PM, Tod Hellman and I  presented a check for $700.00 to Officer Kyle Hoefer.  Also in attendance was Linda Prentice, co-chapter director of Chapter C, Lieutenant Corby Gross, and Canine Officer Brux. A photo and article has been submitted to the Fond du Lac Reporter, so watch for it!

We are still in the midst of planning several more events for the month.  Our first Ice Cream Ride of the season will take place Wednesday, May 22nd at Kelley's Creamery. In addition, we will have a Bike Blessing by Father John Mitchell of Holy Family Parish in Fond du Lac for those interested.  

This Summer marks a new ride called "Spur of the Moment".  We will do this several times this Riding Season.  The first ride will be Thursday May 23.  We will meet at a starting points, kabitz, and make a decision on a ride and ride leader.  

If you have a moment, visit our new website, it is chocked full of all kinds of activities.

At long last I think the riding season is upon us (it has been difficult to get consistent agreement from Mother Nature).

Enjoy the Ride!

Leo and Linda Prentice

WING RIDING WISCONSIN

May 10, 2019 - 68 miles - All wearing safety gear - Submitted by George Gunther

Greg Meath, Ken and Leanne Hanson. Richard and Arlis Wood and I met at the Hanson's house at 9 am for coffee and homemade cinnamon rolls. After eating a few gooey, sweet and delicious rolls, we minus Leanne headed to Wisconsin Dells. Our goal was to meet up with several others at Monk's Bar for burgers and conversation. The trip was uneventful except for a detour at Montello. As we arrived in the Dells, I let Ken know that I was going to skip Monk's. Very unusual for me, but I was still full from those awesome rolls. Later Ken headed back home, and Greg and I spent the weekend with 46 other people. Looking forward to doing it again in the fall.

May 11, 2019 - 291 miles - All wearing safety gear - Submitted by Lori Schneider

Lynn and Mary Randall, Todd and Lori Schneider started out at Kwik Trip on Hwy 44 in Oshkosh with 3 bikes, headed west and stopped in Ripon to pick up Art Ehlert.  Lynn and Mary lead the ride to the Dells where we met up with 40+ other Gold Wingers for breakfast at Paul Bunyan.  After breakfast, Art stayed to ride with another group while Ken Hansen joined us on a ride to Green Bay to Chapter M’s fundraiser.  While there we had a clarification of the rules for Wing Riding Wisconsin, thanks to Sharon Jackson.  Just to clarify Mark & Michelle Covill…Todd bike counts as one and my bike also counts, no rules that the bikes can’t be in the same family…Nice try though.  After a few laughs and good desserts, Mark & Michelle lead a ride back to New London along with Russ and Marcia Oberstadt.  Todd, Lori and Lynn & Mary continued to Oshkosh.  A total trip of 291 miles with at least three bikes at all times.
