It has been a while since our last update. A lot has changed with the virus and stay-at-home orders. 

Be patient, things maybe looking bleak, but it will get better. Even in the 1918 Pandemic, things got better. 

At this time:

Canceled

Wing Ding 42 has been CANCELED. Next year’s location will be sent out soon.

MN - ND District Rally has been canceled.

November Update

Posted: 15 Nov 2019 10:28 PM

It has been a while since we posted anything on the web page, but we are trying to get back in the saddle.

Hopefully all had a good riding year, although it ended abruptly in October and then more cold and some snow in November. But don’t fret – now is the time of the year for us in the North to attend some inside activities over the cold winter months.

There are many Christmas / Holiday Parties over the next month. Check with your Chapter Directors for other Chapters’ parties – it is fun to hang out and enjoy other Chapter folks that we do not get to see all the time.

There will be a Mid-Winter Meltdown in Hinckley at the Grand Hinckley Inn, pencil in the date on February 29th – from 1PM to ??. There is a game room that is rented and a reduced room rate. Bring a dish and game to share with others. Come up, or down, for the day or reserve a room and play into the wee hours of the morning. Details will be forwarded soon.

The District is endeavoring to set up a “Training Day” in March. We will have a class, or two, and then perhaps Medic First Aid for folks that want to keep up to date on their training.
