​​Let’s Ride by Gary Hopper - Senior Road Captain


The Chapter had three fun rides the month, and I'd like to thank all that came out to the Scavenger Hunt and BBQ. Thanks Mitchell's Modesto Harley-Davidson and Modesto HOG for all the prizes and lunch

The HOG electionsare at the November meeting. I'd like to congratulate Craig Wirtz, Amy Montgomery and Teresa Myers on joining the new 2020 HOG Board. The vote for Head Road Captain between Wayne Meyers and Rob Copenhaver will be held at the meeting.

It's that time of year to dig deep through all you jackets and find all your missing Ride with Pride tickets for the December meeting and Christmas party raffles.
