Chapter Director
June has been one crazy month with rain, wind, hail, tornados, and heat. I'm getting ready for the mystery ride
from June 15-17 and Larry Houdek is going to ride also. I had way to much fun on my birthday - to many blue tasties
and so had a hard time getting up Saturday morning.  Getting way to old for all that. 
This month's meeting is at Kerry's in McCool Junction, June 17th, eating @ 12:30, with Dave and Karen Peters hosting.
 Larry Hladik will be your fearless leader.  We are looking forward to the SD-NE bike rally this year at Valentine. 
It starts July 26th.  See you all in Albion on June 14th at The J for the Thursday night supper ride - short ride for me.

The next District ride will be on Aug 4th. This will be a Ride to take a walk. Dark Island Trail will be the destination.
This will be about a two mile hike over the Platte river. We will meet at the parking lot off of hwy. 66. Hwy. 66
is 3 mile south of Central City Ne. On Hwy 14 then east approximately 3/4 mile east on the north side. We will
meet their at 11:00am. After our walk we will go back to Central City and stop at the DQ.

The letter received by Lance & Diane from Anita Alkire, President of GWRRA, indicated member numbers are
down in the NE/SD District. She had some suggestions to help curb and build numbers. We are going to implement
 her suggestions. The member who recruits the most new members in 2018 gets one year of membership to GWRRA paid
 for by the District. Same thing for the Chapter that has the most recruits in 2018 gets their dues paid for by the District.

Happy Father's Day to all. 


Until next time we meet, safe riding and traveling
                                                                                                   bar
        Safety    

A Car Changes Lane Into You

You’re riding in traffic when a car in another lane suddenly veers into the space you’re occupying. Remember,
our  motorcycles can easily fit into blind spots and drivers looking for cars aren’t psychologically 
programmed to see motorcycles.How To Avoid It: Be aware of where blind spots lie and spend as little time in them
as possible. If you can see a driver's eyes in their mirrors, then they have the ability to see you, too 
(But remember that still doesn't always mean they're looking – Ed.).
Beware of situations where lane changes become more possible. Is highway traffic slowing, with one lane moving faster
than others? People are going to want to be in that lane. Don’t be where they want to be.
Look for signs of a car changing lanes: turn signals, wheels turning, the car wandering around its own lane while the driver 
checks his/her mirrors and, of course, the driver’s head moving. Be aware of all that, in all the cars around you, 
at all times, and you’ll be good.

 
Live every day like its your last, one day you will get it right!

May Mystery Person
Phyllis Blessen
New for 2018, now that everyone is in the habit of Hugging and Shaking hands
we are going to have a designated Hugger & Shaker at every Get-Together,
Our June Hugger & Shaker will be Shirley Liss, In the past the Mystery
Person was the 5th Hug or Shake, now it is up to the Hugger or Shaker to decide
what he or she wants for a Mystery Person Honor, it could still be a predetermined number
 like in the past or something new like the tallest or shortest hugger or shaker, or who
smelled the best, who has the newest or oldest ride, who has the best hug or handshake,
who traveled the farthest to the get-together, these are just ideas the monthly hugger &
 shaker can do whatever they want. Each month we will have a new hugger & shaker
 you will have to read the newsletter to find out who they are.
The new GWRRA MOTTO is participate, participate, participate....
