January 2019 Steve Says


I’m honored to be elected to my fifth year as President.

We had a good 2018 and I am anticipating an even better 2019.

Our annual winter brunch was well attended.It seemed everyone had a good time.Norine did a great job collecting door prizes.My luck was recognized with the Hard Luck Shaft Award.

I’ve been passing some of the time this winter with planning rides for this summer. We have already registered for the BMW MOA Rally in Lebanon, TN. Johnson City, TN was one of my favorites as the roads in the area were great.We may take a ride from the rally to Lynchburg for a tour of the Jack Daniels Distillery.No drinking until we are back at camp.
