Hellllo Region 20! This just in!
Elections are complete and I am proud to announce we have new leadership.
Congratulations General on becoming the Region's RC! Kritter will accompany
General as Co-RC. Congratulations to Kritter for Member of the Year. You
deserve it! Congratulations High Beams on remaining Secretary! Thank you Lisa
for running and remaining the Awareness Director. Thank you to all that
came out to vote. We had quite the turnout! No new members or guests but we did
see some old faces reappear. Glad to see you all!
Secretary and Treasurer reports were
read and accepted.
Marte sends a sunny report from
Florida - watch for HB4853 for increase in cost of endorsement classes, HB4905
fines for unendorsed riders, HB4854 waiver for endorsement test, HB4651 modify
penalties for unendorsed riders, SB404 liability waiver of properties used for
endorsement classes. Please research the following which ABATE does not
support: SB527 Helmet Bill, HB4736 increase in plates, SB496 penalties for
Awareness is clipping right along,
Lisa reported 9 more classes before the year is out. Great job Lisa! Looking
forward to see what our final number is for year end.

The Christmas Party will be on December

at Utility Workers Union Hall on Maple and Center Rds. in

event and please bring a dish to pass. Kritter will be bringing the sloppy
joe's. If you are unable to purchase a gift for your child, please contact an
officer and let us know. We don't want to see a child go without. Please go on
our facebook page and reply to the post letting everyone know what you are
bringing so we don't end up with 10 potato salads. Thank you!

today!! There will be a lot of great
information to share and many good memories to be made! Contact Kritter for
more information regarding specific accommodations for the new location. Cost
of rooms are $70-$80 depending on the view from your room.
There is a correction to report from
the last rider - the money that was donated to Tim William's family from
the Fall Color Tour was actually $305. I apologize for the misprint.
Santa won 50/50 and made a generous
donation back - thank you Santa!
Next meeting will be at Foutch's Pub
in Flint on December
7th at 7pm.
Please mark your calendars and
plan to attend.
Until next time, Ride Safe and Ride
