Audrey invited us back to her motorcycle accessory and apparel superstore. This was her fourth time hosting an NTNOA club meeting. This time Audrey truly outdid herself. She had vegetable platters, sandwiches, breads and cold beverages for all to enjoy. In addition to all the food and beverages she donated three door prizes for our 5050 drawing. Many thanks to Audrey for once again hosting our meeting and providing a great venue for our club. We're looking forward to seeing her at the Lake O' the Pines (LOP) rally.
Johnny Cool - Factory Rider (aka David Edinger) handled the President's duties as Clay Walley was in California attending the funeral for an old time riding buddy. JCFR had our many guests introduce themselves and give a brief description of their current ride(s).
Most of the meeting was going over the details for our upcoming LOP rally. The bike classes for the Bike Show have been finalized along with the number of trophies for each of the classes. The entire list can be found here. The registration fee for this year's rally is the same as last year - $30 for single and $40 for a family. Day passes are $10. Pre-registration (prior to 9/13) qualifies for a $50 cash drawing at the rally. There are no fees this year for entering bikes in the show.
Dennis Tackett gave an overview of the schedule of events for the rally. Dennis handed out a flyer describing the rally and the field events. The flyer should be distributed to the local motorcycle dealerships shortly. Click here for a copy in Adobe Acrobat.
Bob Speer told us about his 7,000 mile, three and a half week venture northwest on his KLR650. Most of his riding was off-road in Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana along with a short ride into Canada. At one point he had to walk out of the mountains ten miles wearing motocross boots to find someone to help him after getting his KLR wedged between two rocks. Bob said the blisters on both feet have finally healed. Hopefully Bob will chronicle his adventure so we can publish it in the newsletter and here on the website.
Scooter Jay (aka Jay McCurry) our newsletter editor, reported that the newsletter should be mailed out within the week.
Steve Ledbetter joined the club and drove to the meeting trailering his new Combat Commando which he had just purchased from Gerry Ambrose. Steve said he has always wanted a Commando - a lot of us know the feeling.
Our next meeting will be 28 August at 2:00 PM at Pappas Bar-B-Q.
