Have you ever wondered about what Harley Davidson’s HOG is all about? Want to get more involved in our Chapter? Please consider submitting your name to Bill Madison to serve on our board next year. All positions are still open, but we are focusing on the positions of Assistant Director, Editor and Activities Director. We really would like to see folks get involved to bring new views and energy to the group, while benefitting from those who have taken their turns at leadership and serving. One of the coolest experiences is the opportunity to attend Harley Officer Training (HOT). This two-day annual event is a gathering of corporate HD folks with tremendous information to share, as wells as Chapter officers from around the country. This first-class experience is designed to help educate and provide ideas for the best chapter we can be. The opportunity to meet and talk with others with the same passion and hear more from the “mother ship” is amazing – and that is before the closing party and concert! If you wish to participate, please contact Bill Madison at 813.416.9557 or email@example.com. We need to firm up our leadership for next year in the next month and want to bring this to a chapter vote soon.
We also wish to welcome three new members to our Chapter! Welcome David Medina and Tami and Tom Boczar. We hope to meet you at this Saturday’s Chapter meeting and learning more about each of you. Please do not hesitate to ask questions or offer suggestions to us! Tour our website at cigarcityhog.com.
And, congratulations to Jerry and Orfita Umland and Bill and Donna Madison. Both families are proud new owners of 2017 HDs and are looking forward to cooler riding weather. Jerry and Orfita are sporting a new Ultra and Bill and Donna have a new Road Glide. Ride safe and have fun with your new wheels!
Please note the Ladies of Harley meeting will NOT be held this coming Saturday before the Chapter meeting. Instead, Geri has asked all ladies to come to Logan’s Roadhouse off Anderson on Thursday, October 6th at 6:30pm so we can plan the rest of the year. We look forward to seeing you there.
Don’t forget the Florida State HOG Rally is coming up in October. If you want to stay over Friday and Saturday night, Crusher (Mark Miller) has one remaining room held at the second closest hotel to the Rally site. Please contact Crusher at 262.623.2506 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. He is also leading a ride over to Lakeland on Friday and a breakfast return ride on Sunday…refer to our calendar for more information.
There is still time to RSVP for our annual picnic! Please refer to the attached flyer and mark your calendars now! The Board will be cooking for the Chapter and we will have games, prizes and a lot of fun. Please send your completed form with payment addressed to Cigar City HOG and mailed to Jerry Umland at 18837 Maisons Drive Lutz, FL 33558. Please arrange to respond by Saturday November 5th so we can be sure to have enough food.
Ride Safe! Denise
