From The Directors

From the Directors 

The August Social was well attended and we had a couple of guests from other Chapters. Linda conducted the meeting as I had to drive my son and wife to the airport in Milwaukee. From what I understand, she did a great job!

We have 3 couples this month with very special anniversaries that we want to recognize:      

            John and Kathy Urban: 50 Years on August 9th

            Dave and Jill Krizizke: 50 Years on August 16th

            Dave and Nancy Stormer: 55 Years on August 13th

Congratulations to each couple as they celebrate their special day.

August proved to be a very busy month of riding for Chapter C. Sunday, August 4th, a group from Chapter C, led by Tod & Christine Hellman, rode down to Black Earth to the Chapter H brat fry. The weather cooperated and it was fun going to another Chapter’s event.

Twelve people from our Chapter participated in the Region E Reunion Ride in La Crosse, WI on August 8th – 11th. Everyone had a great time and the scenery and roads in the area were excellent.  Our small group jointly planned our own rides on both Friday and Saturday, and we enjoyed perfect weather on both days. The Pizza River Cruise on the Mississippi River was a hoot.  The comradery and fun that was demonstrated onboard, showed that this cruise was a “true reunion.” The venue, the beer, and the pizza added to the ambiance. It was great to see so many people from the other Chapters and Districts. Next year, the event will be held in Hannibal, MO, do not miss it!

Chapter C continues to be very busy during this riding season.  The month has not ended.  Currently a large contingent of Chapter C members and Chapter M members are in Yellowstone National Park.  The pictures coming to us here in WI show well the great time they are having.  This Saturday is the first annual picnic for the WI District, and although much of Chapter C is in Montana, a small contingent from Chapter C will be attending this event.

Until next time…


Enjoy the Ride,

Leo and Linda Prentice, Chapter Directors

Sunday July 28th, we traveled to Rockton to partake in a Sunday dinner which reminded me of younger years when all of my 5 siblings and their families would gather at my Mother’s house for dinner which Chicken would be on the menu. We had 1/2 a chicken, bread, baked beans and macaroni salad which was more than enough food!  This ride with 7 bikes, 10 people and 274 miles was another Sunday chicken dinner but with a different group of people which we are blessed to have as part of our family.  Our Goldwing Family.  We road through some of the most curviest roads and top of bluffs and through small communities.  Our Venue was amazing with the number of people that they served. Thank goodness we arrived early, and we were one of the first to be served.  Because a 1/2 hour later the line grew rapidly, and the number of motorcycles was amazing.  On our way home we noticed we gained another cycle, a Harley,  he road behind us for a while, then we turned off and he kept going straight on 33, we took the scenic route and we met up with him at an intersection in I believe it was Hillsboro.  We all had a great ride and Thank You Jerry Hempe for leading us on a great and safe ride.

 

August 4, 2019 - 214 miles – Submitted by Tod Hellman

 

Ride to Chapter H's Fundraiser.  We had a total of 7 bikes (5 from Chapter C and 2 from Chapter M) get together for a ride to the Madison Area.  On the way, we passed a small car show, and almost were in a parade in Arlington, WI (they were just staging the participants when we rode through!)  Chapter H did a great job of feeding us, and we all had a great time re-connecting with GWRRA friends. Of course, we had to stop for ice cream on the way home. 


August 8, 2019 – 190 miles – All wearing safety gear – submitted by Linda Prentice

On August 8, 2019, a group of 4 bikes left Festival Foods parking lot in Fond du Lac, WI to go to the Region E Reunion in La Crosse. The total mileage for the trip was 190 miles. There was a stop for fuel in Fox Lake and a stop for lunch near Bear Cat Mountain. The group consisted of Leo Prentice, Bruce & Bev Roehrborn, Mike & Sue Schmidt, and Gary & Jackie Clark from Chapter M. Taking Highway 33 west for most of the way allowed for some curvy roads and a fun time. And yes, everyone wore safety gear for the entire trip.

 

August 9, 2019 – 145 miles – All wearing safety gear – submitted by Linda Prentice

On August 9th, 2019, a group of 4 bikes left the Days Inn in La Crosse and headed north on the Wisconsin side of the Mississippi River to Buena Vista State Park, our first stop. We got off the bikes and checked out the view, which was gorgeous. As we continued on our way to Alma, WI, we made two stops.  First, we stopped at Slipperys’s for lunch. It is famous for a scene from Grumpy Old Men that was filmed there. We sat outside on a deck overlooking the Mississippi River and had a really great lunch. Next, we stopped at the National Eagle Museum, which was only 3 blocks away. After an hour and a half or so, we walked down the road and had some ice cream. We then drove back to the hotel on the Minnesota side of the river. We were very close to the water at times, and the views were incredible. Our total mileage for today was 145 miles. Everyone wore safety gear. Those on the trip were Leo & Linda Prentice, Bruce & Bev Roehrborn, Gary & Jackie Clark from Chapter M, and Mike & Sue Schmidt.
