First, a warm welcome to three new members to our Chapter…. Mark Freeman, Paul (PJ) Jones, and Lou Perez. Some may know Mark from being a member in the past, but we look forward to getting to know all of you, welcome!
Ladies, due to storm prep and concerns last Thursday, please note our LOH meeting is THIS Thursday at Smokey Bones. We have a lot coming up, and look forward to seeing you there. We will start at 6:30pm.
We want to thank those of you who have submitted your names to serve on our Board for 2017. We are now collecting a short Vision statement/Bio on each candidate to prepare a survey for members to vote. We will issue the survey via Survey Monkey as we did for the feedback earlier this year. We will be using the email address that this Wrapper is sent to each week and will track responses per email address. If you do not use email, we will have a few ballots at the November chapter meeting for in-person voting. One vote per address/person, please. Our intent is to be able to introduce your new Board after the November 5th meeting.
Don’t forget the Florida State HOG Rally is coming up at the end of this month. 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.
The holiday season is fast approaching and the Ladies of Harley are here to help you with your giftwrapping needs. Starting Black Friday through Saturday December 17th, we need ladies (gents are also welcome!) to wrap gifts for donations and to host a bake sale on the weekends. We need folks to sign up to work 10am-2pm each of these days. Please contact Geri at 813.600.8473 or at email@example.com to reserve your shift. We will soon have an electronic calendar available to view available shifts.
Ride Safe! Denise
