2014 history is written in the book (somewhere) and 2015 starts off a new year.   2015 didn't get off to the best 
start since we had to cancel the Medical First Aid class here at the bowl due to lack of interest.  Now for new items. 
Cabin Fever weekend is Feb. 21-22 in Norfolk @ Divots.  State Rally will be in June in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.  
We need to select COY and Individual of the Year for our chapter at the January meeting, hosted by Wynns and 
Kruegers, which will be in Monroe at the Eastside Café and Bar on January 18th.  We eat at 12:00 and will be 
getting a 2 meat buffet.   We also need to decide who the 2014 master wingnut award will go to.   All had a nice
time at the Christmas party and both food pantries (Newman Grove and Albion) very much appreciated all the 
nonperishable donations. An extra thank you to all who hosted meetings last year and looking forward 
to new places to eat this next year.

Hi   All   Chapter  “ C “  members,

       Well   Thanksgiving  is  over ,  Christmas  is  over  and  so  is New  Years .   Hopefully  everyone  had 
GREAT   turkey  days.   Connie  and  I  went  out  to  see  our  son  and  family  in  Alexandria, Va.  over 
Thanksgiving    to  meet  our  little  granddaughter   Harper.   She  was  what  was  important  you  know.
         If  you  were  at  the  last  get - together ,  you  know  we  started  a  new  little  game  of  member
“ Get  to  Know  Me  Better     idea.    Adolph  and  myself   started  it  out  for  the  first  time,  but  now
it's  your  time  to  jump  in  and   tell  your  stories .   Tell  the   TRUTH   or  NOT,   that  is  the  question.
We   will  try   to  have  the   boys   against  the  girls  a  little  better.   Each  side  will  have  to  listen  and
determine   which  it  is,  TRUTH  or  NOT.    The  whole   idea  of  this  game,  is  just  to  have  a  little 
fun,  and   find  out  something   more  about   each   other’s   life ,  if  that  is  OK.    Anything   you  want 
to  talk   about  will  work  for  the  game.   Try   your  best   to  get  each  group  to  NOT   guess  
correctly.

        Hoping   everyone   has  gotten   their  room   reserved   for  the   “ Cabin  Fever “   to  be 
February  20 th  and  21 st.    I  took  care  of  that  this  week.   Will  be  another  great  time  with  fun 
games   and  gathering  of  friends.

Safety          
      I think patience is the key word this time of year, in 4 more months it should be warm
enough to ride. We hope everybody had a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and the new year brings
 nothing but good things. We would like to thank everyone who sent Karen a get well card as
 she recovers from her knee surgery, seems to be getting along pretty well and
 we have'nt gotten sick yet from my cooking.
 
              Stay warm and dry,
 
        Dave & Karen
