There's so much we've done this
summer that I don't know where to start.
We did two parades this year -- the Freehold Memorial Day Parade in
the East and the Randolph Freedom Festival Fourth of July Parade in the
northwest. All the Big Rides
are done. We're been to
Wildwood, Americade, MAWMR, and finished up with Judy's "Autumn in
July" Vermont trip last week. I
don't know how she did it but Judy even supplied us with autumn weather!
The mornings were crisp. The
days were sunny with very pleasant temperatures in the 70's. The
temperatures sank to the 40's overnight.
We stayed near Killington and visited Stowe and Ben and Jerry's.
Everyone did some form of twisties.
The real sports rode two gaps that put them to the test.
Linda Sackerman described her ride with Kate Casano and Bill Dudley
through Smuggler's Notch like riding around boulders in your living room. We
had a grand 14 for dinner on our last night, in Woodstock, VT.
The Board is already
looking into our Fall datebook. To
start, we have October's Cyclefest,
then the "Trick or Suite" Halloween celebration at Embassy
Suites. Kim (Commando)
Jancewicz's training for the National Guard has forced us to think about
the date for our December Holiday Party.
Kim, always one step ahead of the rest of us, (toilet trained too
early I suspect), will finish her basic training after the second
Sunday in December. So Kim
asked us to consider having our Holiday Party on December 15 or 16! I
feel like a kid watching summer fly away as the school supplies pop up in
the stores. And, alas, Labor
Day is so early this year!
Well, we will have another go at the Quarry this Sunday, August 12. AMA District II's Corn Boil follows next on Sunday, August 26. We still need more people to commit to cooking for the Spokes-Women's shift from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. The Corn Boil is a 50-mile lime run from Harley of Edison in Highland Park, to the VFW, on Rte 23 in Cedar Grove. Sign-up is from 9:00 a.m. to noon. So this year you can enjoy the ride and get to the food early. We'll be raring to cook by 2:00! It's a great opportunity to be totally at the center of attention in your Spokes-Women vest!
Have you visited our remodeled web site and web newsletter? We really appreciate Donna Warren's ideas and great work. Donna and Kate Casano are whipping the web site into shape! It's hard to believe that the newsletter could get better after Tina brought her new ideas into the mix. We have such talented people in our Club. Thank you all!
If you have any ideas for a
ride before the Polar Bear electric clothes come out holler.
Bring your ideas to the meeting Sunday.
See you at the Quarry!
DIRECTIONS FOR QUARRY
We will meet Sunday, weather permitting at the
Quarry at 11:00 a.m. Call the Hotline before you leave for the
Quarry - sometimes it rains in one part of the state and not another.
