I was advised today that Carl Saldutti, Jr passed away on Saturday the 20th. You may not know who Carl is, but, he was the Director of the Lansdale Parks and Recreation Department. Carl was very instrumental in getting Lansdale Bike Night started way back when, and has always been in the forefront of getting things moving each year for this event. Carl was also an avid Harley owner.
The Blue Comets will be getting together on Saturday to attend his viewing in Lansdale.
I will be leading a group, of whomever wishes to attend, from Hannum's to Wawa on Forty Foot Rd to meet up with the Comets and ride with them to the viewing.
If you wish to attend, please meet with me at Hannum's on Saturday, October 27th, we will be leaving by 12:30 PM. Continue reading

It is with much sorrow that I advise you that Flat Top's son Derek passed away suddenly on Monday, June 25th. Our thoughts and prayers are with Bob(aka Flat Top) at his time of sorrow. Arrangements are as follows
Sunday, July 1st, Normandy Farms, 1401 Morris Rd, Blue Bell, PA. 10:30 AM until 2:30 PM, a celebration of Derek's life.
I need to let Bob know no later than Thursday an approximate number of people to expect from IV HOG, as they are having food at the facility.
In order to be respectful to the family, and not to interrupt anything that may be going on, I am planning on making sure that our Chapter meeting goes no later than 10:00 AM so that those of us attending can arrive there on time. I will lead the ride from the Moose to Normandy Farms. Continue reading

Please be advised that due to pending adverse weather conditions, the decision has been made to postpone the RFTH until June 10th. Unfortunately, I was unable to secure the Moose to have a regular monthly meeting for this week either. I know that this postponement creates a conflict for some of us with Gold Star Mothers and the Hillclimb also being on the 10th, but everyone will have to decide which to attend. Continue reading
I would like to thank all of the members of IV HOG that took time out of their busy weekend schedules to join in on some very meaningful events. Saturday we went out in full force to Fort Indiantown Gap Memorial Cemetery for an event honoring veterans. Although I did not do a full count, I would guess that we were about 50 bikes strong that day !!! At the Cabela's staging location, the Prez of another club asked me how I got so many members out that day. Continue reading

As you will recall, several weeks ago we were called upon to join a ride for a little girl, Teresa, that loves bikes and had an inoperable brain tumor. The Knights put out the call to arms, as it were, for anyone that could join in to please do so for a ride to the house for Teresa. I am sorry to report that Teresa passed away on April 24th.
Her viewing will be held from 9 AM until 11 AM on Saturday, May 5th, at Calvary Church, 820 Route 113, Souderton.
The family has asked that you wear pink or bright happy colors. Internment, due to location size, is limited to family only. Continue reading

As I was riding home this afternoon I couldn't help but think about our wonderful chapter. A quick posting for a special event and our turnout was second to none. I have said it before and you will no doubt hear me say it many times, I AM PROUD TO REPRESENT THIS CLUB !!! A short ride to Bedminster as a fundraiser for a terminally ill 7 year old girl, and we had over 20 of our bikes out there in the cold. Every other club that was there came up to me and expressed their gratitude for the number of people we had attend. The overall turnout was great, but when you look at the percentage of the attendees, we were again the highest of all !!! The girl's father was crying when he spoke with me and he could not thank me enough for our organization to be there for our support. Continue reading
This coming Sunday, March 18th, the Knights of PA club is organizing a "Ride for Teresa". Teresa is a 7 year old girl that has been battling brain cancer, Glioblastoma, for a few years now. She has had many surgeries, chemo, etc. Recently the doctors realized that in spite of surgery and treatments, her cancer has spread and is terminal. She is a lover of bikes, as we all are, but has never seen a large group of bikes together. Continue reading

I discussed the HOG chapter there at length with Tom and he is going to try to make it a more active chapter and hopefully gain membership. Continue reading
