From The Directors:
August already, stores are starting with back to school sales, days are starting to get shorter, EAA, football practice started. Time keeps flying by. Beautiful weather for riding. Even with all the road construction, orange barrels, and detours. Please be safe around the construction areas and on the road in general.
Thank you to Leo & Linda for hosting Chapter C’s picnic and for everyone who attended. All the food and the company was very good.
Again, for anyone that is going to Wing Ding. From the District Director Frank & Sharon Jackson “The Wisconsin District will be working the ticket sales booth at Wing Ding this year in Knoxville. If you will be attending and would like to volunteer to help on Wednesday, August 29th please let us know. We will only need to cover 1 day and there will be three shifts, 8:00am-11:00am, 11:00am-2:00pm and 2:00pm-5:00pm. You will need to be there 15 minutes prior to your shift for explanation of how the ticket packages are sold. We need 10 volunteers for each shift. So please if you are interested in helping out, please let us know. Thank you all in advance for helping and we'll see you at Wing Ding!
Again, here is a plea for a second Assistant Chapter Director. We need to have someone voluntary to fill this position so Leo & Linda have an Assistant when they take over the Chapter Directors position. Sorry for repeating this.
Please keep our thought on our members with medical issues and any other needs.
Thanks and more to come next month.
Ride Smart & Be Safe!
Thank You, every one for the help and support.

Chapter C Directors
WOW. How fast is this summer going by. We’ve been really busy though, what with all our Chapter ice cream rides, out-of-state rides, fortunate soul’s rides, and other specialty group rides. Our GWRRA Wing Ding celebration down in Tennessee will be arriving soon, too. It is scheduled at the end of this month from August 28 thru September 1st. The journey to Wing Ding always offers some adventures for everyone and there is always a lot of exciting things to do to keep everyone busy during the entire weekend: -numerous sight-seeing group rides, entertainment shows, seminars, rider skills courses, games to play, lots of great food… and having fun & visiting with friends and meeting new people. Some of you may even be thinking of volunteering some of your time at some of the events or GWRRA sales booths. Oh yeah, let’s not forget about all those early Christmas vendor product “shopping sprees”-$$ with all that extra “plastic” in our pockets. Wherever the ride(s) take us, SAFETY in riding should always be our main concern. Proper riding gear, helmets, first-aid kits, T-CLOCK before heading out, adherence with team riding, staying hydrated, frequent breaks…
All I want to say is Be SAFE! Be Careful!
Anndd—have FUN, FUN, FUN.
