Ride Updates – We need to start promoting rides. You don’t need to lead, but let’s ride. May 5th is the Red’s 395 ride, it can be changed to Sunday, May 6th. Any suggestions can be put on the ride calendar. State miles, how long it will take. If it’s an overnighter include cost for hotel or any other activities while you’re there. Everyone needs to take responsibility for their own reservation, deposit, fees etc so no one is left hanging with unnecessary charges/fees with last minute cancellations. You can take a vehicle or carpool if needed. We understand that things happen. Our treasury is not responsible for these incidents.

Overnighter’s are for member only and will be closed to others, unless otherwise disclosed. This goes for any other organized rides.

We need to support each other and have comradery!!!

 PJ’s is having a fundraiser tonight (May 2nd) for the Keith. He was involved in the accident on Greg & Marietta which took his life. 20% of the proceeds will be donated to his family. Please wear your “patch”
