Occasionally, but not quite, WEEKLY UPDATE

This weeks events

State Rally in Asheboro, we rolled down to Golden Corral via OLR, and arrived around 11. Hickory, Williamston, and Alamance chapters joined us for lunch, then back to campgrounds. Hung around a couple of hours, then back on the road. Overcast but dry, and still great roads to ride.

Sunday I did my civic duties, supporting Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation "Ride for the Kids". Doreen Gonyea joined the ranks of members who have volunteered their services. The ride was cut short because of the rain. I had to head home as I had family duty. Dry but gray ride in... damp ride home, but the heavy part was after I parked. Still had over 200 riders... and they are still totaling up the money donated.

Ride safe... Ride often

Anyone interested in taking on a chapter "leadership role" (ie: Road Captain, Tail Gunner, Ride Leader, Safety Officer, Second Officer, or even First Officer)

If you want to step up go to www.southerncruisers.net/constitution.htm and read what SCRC national expects from officers (and members).

Then read the ride guidelines... www.southerncruisers.net/newriding.htm. They aren't "rules" but guides, but it does explain the role of ride leader better.

Finally, there is the "code of conduct": www.southerncruisers.net/coc.htm

"Road Captain/ride leader" is a good place to start... but you don't have to be a "Road Captain" to lead a ride. Just be willing to step up... You WILL miss a turn... and do a U-turn... everyone does... it's part of the "fun" and who knows... it could lead to a funny "road name".
