Hello All and Happy Halloween!
I hope everyone had a wonderful week. As we approach November and the holidays, it is time to think about folks less fortunate than us and those who have served. Please check the calendar for information for our Chapter’s participation in the Veteran’s Day Parade on Friday, November 11th.
Voting for our 2017 Board closes this Friday, November 4th. For those who do not have email, we will have a few hard copies for voting during the chapter meeting. I know I have worked with many of you to have the surveys resent to ensure you get them. If you have not received it, please contact me. Please take the time to vote for your 2017 representatives. Thank you for those who have voted. Right now we have 42 responses. Please note that Ralph has accepted a position on the east coast, and has had to withdraw his nomination for Safety Director. Please let Bill know if you would be interested in serving as our Safety Officer for 2017.
The Ladies of Harley will be collecting donations for the North Carolina HOG – Hurricane Relief at our Chapter meeting on November 5th. Please let your friends and family know as this is a great cause. Many families are in need and every bit helps. If you have any questions, please contact Geri Ford at 813.600.8473 or Gerigo63@gmail.com. We look forward to seeing you there and thank you in advance for your assistance.
Less than 5 days 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.
November 9th is fast approaching and will be our last Wednesday night dinner ride/bowling night at Royal Lanes, 1927 Brinson Rd., Lutz, FL. Bowling will begin at 7:15 and continue until 9:15, please arrive 15 minutes early for bowling/safety brief, this will allow for the time needed to select your ball and shoes, plus pay. The cost for this event is $7.00 for 2 hours of bowling which includes shoes and ball. If you are not into bowling, no problem, please come and cheer the bowlers on and enjoy some pretty good bowling alley food and drink. We have had a good turnout for these bowling events, so we hope you will join in.
If you are interested in bowling there are a couple of things you need to do: 1) contact Jerry U and let him know you want to bowl; 2) you can do this by calling 813.892.2835 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Due to a high number of league bowlers this year we are only able to get two lanes to bowl on, but we have been authorized to have 6 bowlers per lane. Jerry did the math and that means only 12 Chapter members will be able to bowl, so first to call or email will get on the list for bowling. However, he will take more than 12 names in the event of cancellations.
For additional questions, please contact Jerry. We look forward to seeing you at this last bowling event of the year.
