The Ride for the Heroes and IVHOG turnout was unbelievable. To see so many of our members participating shows we have a special power to have a positive impact on any event. Arriving at Deans very early in the morning was exciting. Each of you who participated played a special role in the events success. I heard from so many people beginning at Deans and ending at the staging area at the Garden of Reflections about the number of participants we had on the run. Thank you for the support and great day.
The Gold Star Mothers event was equally successful. Not as many IV HOG members but, including all of the InterClubs support, we had over 300 people witness this special event. There were 13 Gold Star mothers in attendance with family. The sacrifice they have made to keep us a free nation goes without saying.
There should never be a question about whether or not to go these two events but rather how can you help.
We are now planning for the Annual IV HOG Poker run. This is our one event that helps support the IVHOG operating budget for the year. As a member, you help in so many ways. Volunteer to help set up at Deans, manage a stop on the route, cook at the post ride, and on and on and on. The board needs participation from many of you to make this event successful. For the first time [I believe ever] we are starting and ending at Deans. It’s very important that we support the dealership. Other HOG chapters do the same for their events. Spreading the word by placing a copy of the flyer in businesses or telling someone who will tell others will go a long way. This is a simple way to help the club but it could pay huge dividends. Just do it and enjoy it.
Reminder: the Inter Club bike nights will be held at the Keelersville Club. Check the East Coast biker calendar on line for dates and details or check out the poster as you enter Deans. I would like to see many of you there. There will be vendors, a bike show, burn out pit, etc.
In closing, continue to support Deans. Randy recently sent out June’s special of the sales tax waiver. It just may be time to get that new machine.
