We had our meeting at Furr’s this morning and scheduled our rides for this and next month. Thanks to all who attended. The Chapter Calendar has been updated to reflect these upcoming rides.
Membership. Folks, please keep your membership current. If you’re not sure of when your national membership expires, contact Andy G. at Barnett’s. He has access to everyone’s membership. It only costs $40 per year, and is required for membership in the local chapter, where the local fees have been waived. Of course you can always buy a new bike when your membership expires, and you’ll get another year for free!
Plans for our 5th Annual Tombstone run were also discussed. Mike (our editor) and Fernie have been working on a design for our T-Shirts, details will be released as they are presented. i’ve seen some preliminary graphics work and it looks awesome!
We plan on our normal two pick-up points for this ride, the East at 8AM and Far East (McNutt & Country Club) at 8:45AM. Travel plans and maps will be available at departure time to all who want one. Plan on grabbing dinner wherever you can Friday night, and the same goes for breakfast the next day in Sierra Vista. Dinner will be served by our own Fernie Magdaleno and should consist of a simple steak, slaw, beans, and dinner rolls. We’ll plan on using chapter funds to offset the cost, and the remainder of the bill will be divided by those in attendance. Please let us know how many of you plan on attending. This will allow us to get an accurate head-count when planning for this dinner.
If you haven’t already, please call up the Motel 6 in Sierra Vista and reserve your room. If you call over the phone and tell them to search under “Hogs,” you’ll get our special discount rate of $72.26 for the entire stay, including taxes. There are only 20 room available for this. Additional rooms may be available after the initial 20, but no guarantee. You can reach Motel 6 at (520) 459-5035. Remember to ask for the reservations for “Hogs.”
Sturgis 2010 was also discussed, more information to follow as I get it.
Safety courses, both standard and advanced were discussed. More info to follow as it becomes available. Also look for it in the upcoming newsletter from Mike Cordle, our editor.
Our next regularly scheduled HOG Chapter meeting will be February 28, 2010.
