Minor Change to Madtown Ride This Saturday

Apparently, there is a huge Reebok Cross fit athletic competition in Madison this Saturday. The competition is largely attended and a nightmare with traffic.
That being said, it has been determined that the ride will go on as scheduled with the following changes:

The ride will start at the HOH, meet at 0900 with KSU at 0930 and we will use the same route, however, we will be stopping / ending the ride at Wedl’s Hamburger Stand in Jefferson for burgers / ice cream.

Message from Milwaukee Harley – Davidson

Ok boys and girls listen up! This is very important! We have a little boy who is turning 10 and sent 70 invites for his party only to get two RSVP in return. This boys name is Thomas and he happens to have Autism. He also happens to love Motorcycles! His mother is trying to arrange as many bikers as she can to meet up Sunday morning to show this little guy that he is special and that people do care. I’m calling everyone who rides! Let’s see if we can make it a special day for him! Because of the huge outpouring we got we change the meeting place to the parking lot of St. Vinnie’s in Slinger at 9:45 a.m. on the 15th, 445 E. Washington St. Slinger, WI 53086.

Get off your tailpipe and let’s ride!

If you ride then let’s go, if you don’t please share! Thank you all!

If you can make it, I am sure that it will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Jon ‘Iceman’ Pykett

Important Chapter News from Dealer

Milwaukee Chapter New Director and Assistant Director

From Mark McClain, Milwaukee Chapter HOG Manager

I’m Jerry DeGroot (aka “Big Jer”).  I have volunteered to be your new Director of the Milwaukee HOG Chapter.  My goal is to continue and build on the proud heritage that IS the Milwaukee Chapter.  This includes improving overall chapter morale, strengthen our sponsoring dealer relationship and to be available to serve YOU.

I’m Kevin Carpenter (aka “Finger”).  I have volunteered to be your new Assistant Director of the Milwaukee HOG Chapter.  My first goal is to support Big Jer and be available to the entire chapter.  Secondly, I want to increase membership.  As we celebrate another milestone anniversary, expect to see me at my usual post on Thursday night at the H-D museum’s “Bike Night” serving as a chapter ambassador and recruiting new members.  Come down and join me!

All of us sincerely thank Matt for his service as chapter director.

Vest/Jacket Order

We would like to get another Norscott Vest/Jacket order together. In order to get the best pricing possible, we need a minimum order of 12 combined. The vests are $65 and jackets $80 if we can reach a dozen for the order. These come with the large chapter rocker and whichever of the 3 HOG logo patches you would like on the back. You can’t beat this price! The patches alone are approximately $40.

If you would like to order one, please contact myself (director@milwaukeechapter.com) or Lynn Stucker (loh@milwaukeechapter.com).

Thanks!

Matt
