From The Directors

From the Directors:

 

June was a very busy month for Chapter C. Our social was held at Faro’s and they were very accommodating to our group of 18. It was our first in person social in 3 months. It was really good to see people again. After the meeting, Lynn and Mary Randall led a ride toward the Dells area for those who wanted to go for a ride, as it was a beautiful day.

 

We had 4 scheduled ice cream rides in June, and only one was rained out. One was changed to Kelley’s Creamery since Friesland was cancelled for the entire summer.

There were two Spur of the Moment Rides. One was a large group that headed up toward Shawano and stopped for lunch. The other one was 5 bikes and they were led by Jack Bridich  and headed up to Amherst for lunch. Then they journeyed up to the Dells of Eau Claire Park.

 

Tod Hellman put together a 4-day trip to northern WI and the UP in MI to visit various waterfalls. A total of 10 bikes and one car went on the tour, and everyone had a great time.

 

July looks like it will be a busy month with lots of choices for rides. Our Social is set for Sunday, July 12th at Primo’s in Oshkosh, followed by a ride. We have four ice cream rides and a Spur of the Moment Ride planned for the month. In addition to that, Leo and Linda are hosting our Chapter C picnic on Sunday, July 26th at 1 pm.  So please join us on one or all of the events for July!

 

The Wings over Wisconsin contest is happening again this year. Jerry Hempe has organized a ride for August 22nd – 30th going to South Dakota. Those interested should let him know.

 

A large group from here are planning to go to the Hannibal, MO trip from Aug. 13th - 16th. This is with the Gold Wing Reunion Group, and it will be their third trip in 3 years. Last year it was held in La Crosse, WI with an attendance of 200.

 

If there are any changes to our schedule, it will be updated on our website and our Facebook page. Hopefully we will be able to enjoy a good month of riding in the month of July!

 

 

Enjoy the Ride!

 

Leo and Linda

June 11 – 14, 2020 Waterfall Ride – 1,000 miles – All wearing safety gear – Submitted by Tod Hellman

We had an awesome ride of approx. 1000 miles with great scenery, good weather, and a great group of people.

 

We had a total of 7 bikes from Chapter C, and 4 bikes and a car from Chapter M along for the fun.

 

Thursday’s ride left from Fond Du Lac, stopped in Appleton and again in Seymour to pick up additional riders. We arrived at Big Snow resort in Wakefield, MI. Roughly 280 miles in total. 

 

Friday, we rode a loop that started and ended at Big Snow and visited 5 waterfalls and 1 scenic overlook. 190 miles in total.

 

Saturday, we rode up to the Keweenaw peninsula, visited 5 more waterfalls and another awesome scenic overlook, and spent the night in L’Anse, MI. 260 miles total. We also had another Chapter C member join us today, plus 3 non-members for a total of 15 bikes and a car. This was a big group, but we all managed to keep the train together, even going through Houghton, MI (a fairly large town).

 

Sunday was 2 more waterfalls after breakfast, and then the trip home with riders exiting as they got close to the respective houses. +/- 250 miles in total back to Fond du Lac.

We journeyed north to the Dells of the Eau Claire Park. Enjoyed the Park and watched the playful activity in the water.  We all began our trip home, depending where home was, the riders logged in between 250 and 350 miles.
