Hello Region 20!!
We have some very
important news to pass along, as there have been some changes in "the
office". Randy Wilson has stepped down as RC - Boo Boo has been
appointed the interim RC until elections at the end of the year. Georgia
accepted a position in Traverse City and they moved up north. Congratulations
Georgia! We will miss you both!
September meeting was moved to the
14th at Foutch's due to Labor Day holiday. Secretary and Treasurer reports were
read and accepted.
Please watch HB4736 - they are trying to raise our plates to
$123! Contact your Representative and let them know that this CANNOT happen!
Act Now! Also watch HB4651 - involving non-endorsed riders. Please urge all of
your family and friends to get their endorsement. It's easy to do and worth
having whether you own a bike at this time or not. First offense for no
endorsement is $500 and 90 days in jail. The following offenses are $1000 and 1
year in jail. Get endorsed today!!
Shout out to our Awareness Team - 561
Students taught so far this year! Great job! Anyone looking to purchase
Awareness yard signs - please note there was a motion at the last meeting to
sell the signs for $10. The signs have previously been sold for $7 to members
and $10 to non-members. In efforts to raise money for the region to help our
awareness program, we will be selling the signs for $10 going forward.
The State Bike Raffle has taken
place - Congrats to the winner! (hope its me!) Thank you Larry and Carrie Flood
for your hard work on the Bike Raffle tickets - much appreciated!
for more details about the RAVE Run (Safe Center) - we always look forward to
this event every year to help out yet another local charity. Congratulation to
Zip and Marte on their marriage!! We showed up in our typical Region 20 style
at the End of Summer Party - thanks to all that attended! Already looking
forward to next year!
Mark your calendars for the Fall
Color Tour on October
- this will also be a benefit run
for Tim Williams. Registration will start at 10am at Top End on Dort Hwy., ride
leaving at 12
sharp. The cost is $10/person with
50% of the proceeds to help raise money for Tim's family. You may remember Tim
as the mechanic at Top End. He was tragically killed in a bike accident, so
please come show your support and take a nice ride with us!
Please come to the monthly meetings
to get involved and learn more about Region 20. High Beams (Audrey) is still
running the Membership Referral Program - refer a member and get your name
entered into the drawing at the end of the year for a Visa Gift Card! This will
always come handy at the Holidays. Speaking of Holidays - our very own Santa is
doing well after several medical procedures. Glad to see you’re doing well,
friend! Now can you grow that beard back quickly?? We have a party coming up at
the end of the year!
Remember EVERY month we ride is
awareness month. Hope to see you all at the next meeting - be safe out
there! High Beams xoxo
