Weekly Update

Monday, May 6, 2013

Just talked to Jarret at the paint shop and he has the paint in from color-rite and the bike stripped down. No-Mutt should be ready by Wednesday, for me to pick up Friday. Enough time to do some last minute work before our Back Of the Dragon trip, next week.

May monsoons are upon us, but I'm hoping we get a break before departure. I would actually like to see what WV looks like without rain or snow.

We now have meet time and place for the WV ride (see below).

Ride safe and ride often

This last week

Bike night at Village Deli Bonnie and I got there to find Tony, Bonnie S. and Frank ogling Rick's new ride. We were soon joined by Boop and went inside to discover Mike H and Cindy H had already arrived. We were soon joined by Alain and later John to make it a great, big, raucous group. We talked about upcoming rides and bike night. The consensus seems to be to add a second bike night this month AFTER our WV ride and keep Stromboli’s in the rotation, making it three venues for now (Weinberg’s, Stromboli Express, and Village Deli).

Ride for Kids: From Frank.. Not much to report... Cloudy skies, and cool weather kept the crowd small. I saw and chatted with Members from several chapters... (GR, FP, JCC), plus friends from CMA, HOG, BBQ bros etc. Rise went over the same roads, with the usual top notch support from Cary, Wake and Chatham Sheriff depts, as well as Pittsboro Fire and Rescue.

I left before the announcements regarding money raised... but the trail of bikes was over 1.2 miles long.

They changed things around this year... raised the price from $35 to 50... although you could (and I did) register online for $40. Big thing (for many) was they upped the price from $50 to $100 for a T-Shirt. It's a REAL good cause, and I hope they don't turn folks off with this new price structure.

State Rally: From Cricket: I would like to thank everyone that came out and supported the North Carolina SCRC Spring Gathering/State Rally last weekend. Despite early weather forecasts that probably kept some folks away, we had a fantastic time and the weather cooperated wonderfully!

A special thanks to the chapters and members who pitched in to make it a successful weekend!!! Some of the ways they helped - handling the dice run and bike games, selling raffle and 50/50 tickets, providing music entertainment Saturday night, getting donations from businesses, making items for the auction, and giving donations of items or cash.

Because of the efforts of so many and more importantly because of the support of the folks that came out either for the weekend or the day, North Carolina SCRC will be sending a check to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital for $1,386.00.


Check out the Chapter Forum or the Yahoo group from time to time to keep updated on current events and club news.

If you see an event you want to attend, and you think it might be fun to attend said event,with fellow riders... Please post something on either Yahoo, or Delphi forums. If I see it in time, I'll cross post on the other. The forums are great ways for YOU... to get to know your fellow members, and with luck, get someone to ride along.
