Message From the Director

We just attended our last District Rally as MN & ND District Directors.  We still plan to attend  District Rallies as we have so much fun.  We really encourage all members to go to other rallies.  Set a goal next year to do at least one other District Rally. 

It is fun to see how games, bike shows, rides etc. are done in another District.  It is also fun to participate.  Jan has had luck in winning 50/50 and raffle prizes.

The weather is really up and down.  Many of us still have riding events. Dress warm and take care.  There are wet leaves out there.

We are hearing that there is a lot of event planning going on for our non-riding months.

It is great to see Chapters join in each others events and keeping in touch with friends throughout the Chapters.

So--as usual,

Soggy around here today as it is in many places.  Joe is pulling the dock up on the bank for the 2nd time this summer.

Check out the updating of the journal.  There is a lot of information that can be put in the journal using drop downs.  Chapter event flyers can now be placed here as well as events from other districts.

Not too much new.  The usual cautions about riding safe.  Sometimes the Fall season seems to have more things to be aware of.  We have mentioned them in Tuesday updates.

Deer, farmers are harvesting, school buses are running, rain is washing out roads and soon the leaves will be falling—Be careful out there.

Hope to see you soon,

Hi all,

As we start riding into the Fall Season we need to remember the deer are still out there and the fallen leaves will soon be an issue. Also, harvesting equipment and school buses will need to share the road.  There is a lot to look out for.

There have been many activities, rides and events that have happened so far this riding season. According to the calendar there is much more planned for the rest of the season. It is great to see Chapters being invited to join the fun of another Chapter.  This is one of the things that make MN & ND Districts great.

We will be at Wing Ding, Wisconsin District Rally and Iowa District Rally as well as events around "home". Hope to see you.

June 2018

As with everyone else, we are surprised at how fast time is flying by.  I guess if there is snow on the ground through April and we got a reminder of late July the past couple of weeks, nothing should surprise us.


We just got back from the GWRRA Missouri Rally in Branson.  There were 18 GWRRA MN District members there!!!!   A good time was had by all of us.


The St. Peter 4 of July parade is soon upon us.  We had 18-19 bikes and 38 people participating in last year’s parade.  It is a lot of fun.  We had spectators comment on how impressive it is to see the bikes and flags coming down the street!!  Well—it was our son and Granddaughters but they had never seen something that impressive before in a parade.   Let us know if you are parading.


We are soon going to be at our District Rally.  We hope to see all of you there—OK—many of you there.  The GWRRA MN & ND Rally has always been a fun time to ride, play, learn and visit with members you probably haven’t seen for a year.


Ride safe, we saw “stupid” too many times going to and coming from Branson.
