Good Morning !

In case you couldn’t join us at LVHD for the meeting on Tuesday, here is all the latest news from Roddy.
We would like to try to organize a Chapter photo in front of the Welcome Las Vegas sign for our website.  We want to have as many members there as possible !  Please keep a lookout for a blast once we decide the best day.
We welcomed 5 new members to our SNHOG family !
Dave, Anthony, Jerry, Linda and Ray – we hope to see you all out on the ride this Saturday.
remember that every month our Editor Bev hides someone’s HOG number somewhere in the text of the Newsletter.  IF you find YOURS, you must attend that month’s membership meeting to claim your prize.  It is only valid that month – so no looking back on past editions.. hee hee
This month Randy Roberts – found his number and won a $25 gift certificate to Harley Davidson. Congrats
We also pulled 2 ride ticket winners – each winning $25 HD gift cards
Bob Wong and Sandy Backus
Each time you ride with us, you get a ticket for the raffle.  We collect the tickets for ONE month and then pick the winners at the next meeting.
 James Bennett won the 50/50 for $93 – Contrats James !
Nation of Patriots – 
Larry P talked about the golf tournament we had last weekend. It was a huge success, great weather and a lot of fun.
Chuck reminded us about the dates when the American Flag that is traveling around the country will arrive in Las Vegas for our Chapter to host.
So mark your calendars for July 11-13.
July 11th – Flag arrives
July 12th – Ride to AFB
July 13th – Depart with flag to Williams AZ
The ride going onto the Nellis AFB on July 12th will require EVERYONE to email some information to get clearance for the base entrance.  Keep an eye out for the blast so you can attend this ride.
Since these rides are to raise money for the charity, we take a minimum of $5 to ride each leg on these days.. OF COURSE we will gladly take as much as you want to donate !   If you want more information about the Nation of Patriots, please visit the website at and check out the Patriot Tour –
