What happened at the meeting last night….

Thanks to all that made it to LVHD for our first meeting of 2018 –

We had a great turnout last night DESPITE all the rain and MANY OF YOU down with the flu..

We hope you all get feeling better soon !
a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone that brought pantry items and cleaning supplies for NCCF!
We had an overwhelming response which doesn’t surprise me from our thoughtful members!
Kathy, our LOH Officer, dropped off all the donations today and they were VERY VERY appreciative as they were low on so many items.  So once again, this Chapter comes through with such generosity !  
Renewals for 2018 will be accepted until Feb –
Randy began by talking about the Ride365  program and that he started off the year with his Hair of the Hog ride and 40 bikes  of which all got registered for the mileage program.
Its really EASY to do and all your mileage counts for the Chapter and Individually even if you didn’t ride a chapter event.
For more information, you can fill out the attached form and bring it into the Dealership with your bike and they will get you started.  Its that easy!
With our ride Sign-in sheets we are able to see how active everyone is when it comes to participating in the Chapter events – For the year 2017 we want to recognize the members that participated the most
Bill C.

Dirk Thanked everyone for helping with Frosty Balls and that we are already getting ready for CHILLY BUNS next month. Let us know if you want to volunteer.
He welcomed 4 new members to our chapter.
He also presented out newest Ambassador with his rocker and rope – DENNIS B.  Thanks for joining the team of Ambassadors!
Randy also talked about how this year he plans on visiting many National Parks so it is important that if you don’t have the “American the Beautiful” park pass yet, you should consider buying it.   There will be a patch earned at the end of the year for those that made it to a specific number of the rides that visited parks.   So stay tuned for that!
CHILLY BUNS is coming up on Saturday Feb 3rd..  we don’t yet have the route or stops but if you know you would like to volunteer, please let me know !
