Awareness by Mike Poage: We taught 111 students in July. Total for the year is 639. Mike is still in need of instructors. Anyone
is welcome to attend an Awareness Class to see what it is all about. Mike says
that if he can do it, anyone can.
The Awareness Run on July 22 got rained out, so looking to catch up in next year’s events.
Events by Sassy: No Events meeting needed at this time.
Rave Run is Sept. 16. Poker Run and over 100 miles on the ride. Dedics will be the start of the run. Bubble man and bounce
house at the end of the run. So get with Zip for more info or see the flyer in this Rider, on the Region 20 Website or Region

RC Report by Mike Poage: For
Bikes on the Bricks we will need help manning the booth on Saturday and Sunday, September 9th and 10th. Bikes on the Bricks
is asking for blockers for the charity ride on Saturday. It will be an easy blocking
job as the police will stop traffic at the intersections and we will take over from them.
The next meeting will be a combined meeting on Monday, September 11 due to Labor Day at Captain’s Quarters in
Burton at 7pm.
