IMS, Meltdown and District Rally

We are just getting familar with our MN & ND look to the Web site; how does eveyone like it? 
Feed is always accepted. 

Now for the Title Teaser - We hope to see many down at the IMS (International Motorcylce Show) at teh Minneapolis Convention Center. We are one of a hand of cites in the US and Canada that have the IMS event here. The show is fun to see what's new, whether be our favorite brand or specialty equipment. Come by the booth, and register for a free, individual one-year membership provided by the District. One entry person, please. 

The District is hosting a Mid-Winter Meltdown on Feb 23 at the Grand Hinckley Hotel (across the parking lot from the Casino in Hinckley). It is a fun time, whether you stay for the day, or stay overnight at the hotel. 

Make sure you mark your calendar for the North of Normal Rally in Fargo, ND on July 12 - 13. See details under the Rally / Events tab. 

Thanks and stay warm

This is our last blog and Journal entry. We wish the best for the GWRRA MN&ND Districts.

Again thanks to Bob & Renae Hicks for stepping up to the assistant position a couple of years ago.  They will be fun to work with as your new directors!

We have had four great years. One as Assistant Directors and three as Directors. We have enjoyed working with everyone the past four years

So with the worn out statement--where did the time go?

Continue to do the good work you have been doing for the MN & ND Diistricts. 

Ride safe, 2, 3 or 4 wheels

Hi all,

Well this will be the year of Winter to Summer to Winter with a taste of Spring and Fall and generous doses of rain.

However calendar planning is going on for 2019 January – December.  There a lot of ideas out there and new ideas keep on coming.

If you have an idea share it with your Chapter Director and get it on your calendar.

Have a great Thanksgiving,

Joe & Jan

We just attended our last District Rally as MN & ND District Directors.  We still plan to attend  District Rallies as we have so much fun.  We really encourage all members to go to other rallies.  Set a goal next year to do at least one other District Rally. 

It is fun to see how games, bike shows, rides etc. are done in another District.  It is also fun to participate.  Jan has had luck in winning 50/50 and raffle prizes.

The weather is really up and down.  Many of us still have riding events. Dress warm and take care.  There are wet leaves out there.

We are hearing that there is a lot of event planning going on for our non-riding months.

It is great to see Chapters join in each others events and keeping in touch with friends throughout the Chapters.

So--as usual,

Soggy around here today as it is in many places.  Joe is pulling the dock up on the bank for the 2nd time this summer.

Check out the updating of the journal.  There is a lot of information that can be put in the journal using drop downs.  Chapter event flyers can now be placed here as well as events from other districts.

Not too much new.  The usual cautions about riding safe.  Sometimes the Fall season seems to have more things to be aware of.  We have mentioned them in Tuesday updates.

Deer, farmers are harvesting, school buses are running, rain is washing out roads and soon the leaves will be falling—Be careful out there.

Hope to see you soon,

Joe & Jan Marek
