From The Directors

From the Directors:

It’s been a tough start to the Riding Season with the weather not particularly agreeable, but the last month has been very fruitful.  Chapter C has been doing what they do best: riding, socializing, eating ice cream, and just having a good time.  A warm comradery has been building with our neighbor Chapter M.  Sharing rides with them has resulted in more smiles, laughter and just good times.

 Take a look at our Wing Riding submissions, some creative and fun times have been had. There’s a rivalry going on between Chapters M and C, and we learned that the Madison Chapter is also in the run! A thank you goes out to Bruce and Bev Roehrborn for their coordination of our Ice Cream rides.  A favorite over the years has been Pie Night in Friesland, and our recent attendance was awesome, and I can attest to the Coconut cream pie (yummy).

 Tod and Christine Hellman were kind in sponsoring what is becoming an annual event, the Chapter C picnic.  What a picnic!  Mother Nature was at her finest.  Attendance included: Frank and Sharon Jackson, Tod and Christine Hellman, Lynn and Mary Randall, Wayne Bauman, Jack Bridick, Bob VonRotz, Bruce and Bev Roehrborn, Daryl and Shirley Kunzie, Todd and Lori Schneider, Jerry and Marge Hempe, and Leo and Linda Prentice.   Jerry Hempe led a ride through the southern end of the Kettle Moraine area prior to the picnic, and several members participated in that as well. Thank you to Tod and Christine for hosting the picnic, and to Jerry for leading the ride.

 We would also like to welcome a joint member of Chapter C and M, Ken Helmer.  Ken has been riding for years and has enjoyed several different motorcycle marks.  In my brief conversations, I learned that he is a very avid rider and a motorcycle tire expert.

 Keep your eyes out on our website Calendar and Facebook page and you will notice that the Good Times at Chapter C continue to roll on!

 We hope to see you at our August Social on Saturday, August 3rd, at 9:00 am at Rolling Meadows. There will be a ride after the social.

 

Enjoy the Ride,

Leo and Linda Prentice

There were 9 people Lynn and Mary Randall, Jon and Kathy Urban, Mike and Sue Schmidt, Joe Lauber and Bruce and Bev Roehrborn. Ken and Leanne Hansen met us there on their 2 bikes and Daryl and Shirley met us there in their truck. All had a good time eating delicious ice cream.

The spur of the moment ride took 3 bikes (Jack Briddich and Ken and Leanne Hansen) on an 148 mile ride.  Ended up at Harbor Bar in King for a delicious lunch.


June 29, 2019 - 291 miles – Submitted by Lori Schneider

Todd Schneider lead a group of 7 bikes to the De Young Zoo in Wallace MI.  Six bikes (Lynn & Mary Randall, Tod & Christine Hellman, Mark & Michelle Covill, Russ & Marcia Oberstadt, Todd Schneider and Lori Schneider) left from the Kwik Trip in Oshkosh at 7:30.  We then proceeded up Interstate 41 to pick up Al and Barb Enderby.  Right after crossing the WI/MI border, we stopped for gas and a leg stretch.  Todd had contacted Zoom In (right across the street from the zoo and where we planned on eating lunch) about parking there.  We were surprised when we arrived and Ron (owner) had put out kickstand plates for us!!  We then headed to the zoo.  Very cool place, they had a 4-month-old kangaroo, a baby calf, snakes, chickens and a lizard out for you to pet.  The kangaroo was in a pouch bag and they passed it around to be held and petted.  They had feeding times for the bears, deer and Wallace the hippopotamus.  The deer section was opened up for you to go in and feed the deer carrots and bread.  Wallace the hippo was very cool and the kids were able to feed him also.  If you have never been to this zoo, it is well worth the trip.  We spent a couple hours there and then walked back across the street for lunch at the Zoom In.  They had great food and Kitty (owner) was also very thrilled that we had stopped.  Before leaving, both Kitty and Ron came out to take pictures of our group.  Todd then lead up on a back-road trip home.  Al and Barb told us about Sweets & Eats & Par Tee Mini Golf in Suamico.  We made a stop there.  The owner was a stitch and the ice cream, almond milk ice cream and yogurt were wonderful and refreshing on our hot and humid day.
