Been a good week here in Newman Grove, some riding and lots of working hard.
Received a thank
you letter for all the support from the Nebraska chapters from Bill and Nancy James.
What a Year! Seems like it wasn't long ago that we were honored to
Region E as the Region E Couple of the Year for 2013-2014. It really was a surprise
to be selected because all the other couples were great and would
represent the Region superbly.
Since then we have continued
to meet many people and have felt the support
from all the Region. An talk about support - on stage at Wing Ding during the
International selection it was truly heart warming to see the 'Sea of Red' in support
of us. The extra touch of the crowns and socks let us know that you were supporting
us personally, as well as, the Region.
During this year we have had
the privilege of meeting old and new friends while
attending Chapter, District and Region events. Now it is time for another great
Region E Rally and a time to select a great couple to represent our 'Awesome' Region
as the 2014-2015 COY. We know it was tough for the judges last year and this year
will be just as difficult to select the new couple. We have met almost all of the couples
going to the Region selection and they are fantastic.
Through the experiences of
the last year we have come to really appreciated the
value of the Couple of the Year program. We want to encourage all chapters to
participate in this super program. Surely each chapter has great people and honoring
a couple and individual shows how much you appreciate all they do to support your
chapter. Once honored by your chapter, now is the time to return that honor by
representing your chapter at District. Just be yourself and have fun
We won't disappear as we plan
to continue visiting more chapter, Regions etc.
and growing the friendships we value so greatly. See you down the road!
Thank you Region E for your support!!
Nancy and Bill JamesRegion E Couple of the Year [2013-2014]
Supper ride is this Thursday, Aug. 7th, to the Howells
Café in Howells, eating
at 6:45. For Columbus area riders, plan to leave Sapp Brothers at 6:00. Remember that
this month's meeting has been moved to August 10, at 12:30, at the Hamling farm north of Albion.
We are to bring a dessert or salad. Thanks for Lisses and Koeppens for last month's meeting - we had
a good time. School starts August 13th for students, so summer is almost over - darn!! No time to go
to the Region E Rally in August. I got a new part put on the left handle bar of the Goldwing that will let
me start in gear and it was an easy fix. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately, depending on how you look at it),
I have no more news to write about, so this is it.
Continue with fun and safe riding while we have the good weather. Until next time,
Hi Chapter “ C “ ,
being a short month between newsletters, and the fact that
I have missed the last two,
I thought I might get this in early.
Have not gotten to ride a lot this summer, not sure why, but time is just getting away
always. We get to the monthly meetings but the trike gets to rest the balance of the time.
Our older son got back into the Goldwing world again. I found a very nice 2001
used 1800 in Illinois for him. It has some miles on it, but it was a single owner
unit and had a good price to it. He called the owner and on Sunday afternoon the
owner called him back. Next thing I knew our son and wife were driving to Illinois
with a trailer to pick it up. They drove all night to be back in Fremont the next day.
He now owns four wings. He has a 1976 , 1977 , 1984 and now the 2001. Anyone
wanting an older Goldwing ( 1976 or 1984 ) just ask me. By the way, when I said he
returned to the Goldwing world, he did own a beautiful 2010 Harley Electra Glide.
Hoping that the weather is good for the weekend of August 15 to 17 as that is the Mystery
ride weekend that Cindy and Gary put on . Always a very interesting few days to ride.
They plan out places to go and give out clues to see if anyone can guess the ending point
of the trip. So far, NO luck with that. Hope some other's may join up to go.
Think about the rides
you took alone or with other people that you have riden. Good
not so good, just the interesting stories about them. It is always fun to hear about them.
Will be asking for your stories again at the meeting on Ausgust 10, Sunday.
