Chapter Director

Rain finally made it our way - over 1.5" this afternoon.  I've been doing a little planning for the state rally. 
Chapter C is in charge of games, which the motel has available for us.  I reserved Big Trike Races and Ring 
Toss - both outdoor games.  There will also be the usual indoor games available for members to participate in. 
We are also in charge of the registration table from 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.  Our next meeting is April 19 at 
Loup River Inn in Fullerton, hosted by Butch and Linda Gray, eating at 12:30.  There has been a buffet made 
up for under $10.00.  Supper rides will be starting April 23rd and the first will be to Creston, eating at 6:45.  
Thank you to Don and Phyllis Blessen for hosting last month's meeting at Maximus in Columbus.  
Until Sunday, keep dry.

Hi   All   Chapter  “ C “  members,

Well, this has been a very busy time for me. Work has just gone crazy with new orders. 
In the last week alone we have taken orders for almost two million in sales. Our production 
is starting to be booked all the way out to September . Great problem to have. If anyone
knows of some welders looking for jobs , we may have a place for them. Also some 
ACAD operators in our office.

Along with activity at work, that historic event of Fremont Trap Shooting is again upon me. 
This will be 25 plus years that I have done something with the team. The shooting sport is 
becoming even larger for our division. The past years the junior and senior shootings went 
to the same location for the weekend competition shooting. This year with the number of 
shooters we have in the conference, it has been divided up where the juniors go to one 
location each week and the seniors to another. There are close to 1200 shooters just in 
our conference, the Eastern Cornhusker Conference. The end of season will have 
one large shooting event, the “ Cornhusker National Trap Shoot “, where there will be 
close to 2500 youth shooters this year. Oh my God, kids and guns. Please understand, 
these youth have been instructed in gun safety and handling.

Now that I have been talking about non-wing items, how about the weekend safety 
classes coming up at the end of May 2015. Two wheel and trike classes are being offered. 
It is always a good idea to review these classes. NEVER think you could not learn 
something new to help keep you safe in your riding .
Also it is time for you to be signing up for the district rally. Please try to make this
event if you have never done so and even if you have, lets go for one more this year. 
It will be some great times.
