CLEAR LAKE ROAD RIDERS
P.O. BOX 1436
KELSEYVILLE, CA. 95451
Minutes of meeting December 5,2007
~~Please pay your dues $25/couple & $15/single~~
JANUARY 2ND WE WILL MEET AT THE COTTAGE COFFEE SHOP
eat @ 6:00 so we can begin meeting by 7:00
Nineteen members were present. Guest/prospective member Bob Weis was introduced.
One of the first orders of business was the introduction of a possible amendment to the bylaws regarding nomination deadlines and the actual voting by the members for officers. Chuck Gillingham drafted the proposal. It was read by Chuck and then per the bylaws our President Steve Sayers read the proposal to the members. Bylaws require that the proposal be read at the two meetings, then there will be discussion and the proposal will go to the members for voting.
The sole purpose of the amendment would be to set policy to give members time to consider running for office or being nominated for office & to make the annual transition of officers become effective in January (instead of the current method of voting in November and handing off to the new officers following the December meeting). Discussion will be at the next meeting. Any future action on the proposal will be under the guidance of the 2008 officers; and of course, the memberships vote.
Treasurers report by Margaret Reese was presented as follows;
General fund $446.29
Ride for Kids $480.24
Toy Run $4713.79

lunch $945. 50/50 $115. Donation 295.24 extra meat that was sold $133.

Steve Sayers postage and fees for IRS & getting our non-profit status in good standing $25.48
Susan Potter: ink cartridges for minutes and flyers over the year $45 Motion to reimburse was made by Carol Jordan, second by Pat Sayers -motion carried to pay expenses.
Paul Breunig reported on the Toy Run & showed the Certificates of Appreciation to be presented to our major supporters. Pauls count was 40 bikes braving the elements and no count on the No Name Car Club or other autos that participated. Music was provided at no charge by PUBLIC NUISANCE. They donated their tips to the Toy Run in the amount of $30.
Carol Jordan has set up tables in Breunig's barn and has things sorted for our shoppers to fill their lists on Thursday (Dec. 6) evening at Breunigs barn. Cookies and coffee will be there. A thank you card will be sent to CMA for working the kitchen. Nick Norcio & Danny Garrison worked the barbeque all day to keep the steaks coming! They have this down to a fine art! Thank you Nick & Danny. Carol Jordan ( & company) have shopped. Were still short on teen boys items.
I will see that Public Nuisance gets a THANK YOU card.
Steve Biggs announced ADOPT-A-HIGHWAY JANUARY 4TH FRIDAY @ 10:00 at the Nice Lucerne cutoff.
GWTA rep Jimmie Phillips was absent. Chuck didnt have any GWTA news to report.
A membership application, in good order, (with dues) was presented by John & Lynn Hicks. They were unanimously voted to become members of CLEAR LAKE ROAD RIDERS. Welcome to the group. Its always exciting to have new members come in. Get Well to Lynn, she has been sick and wasnt able to participate in the Toy Run or the meeting.
Fifty-fifty ($36.50) was won by Peggie Rombach (shes on a lucky streak).
Most exciting order of business:

September minutes were approved as submitted. Robert Jordan made the 1st motion & second was made by Carol Jordan, et al.-ayes carried, thank you.
RIDE FOR KIDS: We donated enough to be invited to the stage to share how we raised the money. The recycling idea boosted our coffers. Credit: Robert Jordan suggestion; with help from John Norcio, Margaret Reese, & Paul Breunig @ Hillside Honda all being locations where you can leave your bagged recyclables and they will turn them in for cash for the RFK account.
Pat Norcio spoke of setting up the BOB REESE MEMORIAL RUN at Robinson Rancheria next spring. We were all disappointed this spring with our host location and will not support their establishment again. Pat will be helping the ride chairperson as time nears. Possible dates of April 13 or 20 were mentioned; depending on spring weather. We’d like to have our ride early to get a good crowd but weather can be a deterrent. Last year we competed with many other rides!
Nice door prizes that you need NOT be present to win:
3 night stay in Tahoe—donated by Roy Fields at ON THE WATERFORNT,
overnight @ Featherbed Railroad – donated by
meat package valued at $250 donated by GOLDEN GATE MEAT Co.
THANK YOU LEE & PAM! There is a lot of work involved in events and if we don’t support these events they will wither and die. It’s like hosting a party and no one comes!
~~PLEASE PARTICIPATE ANY WAY THAT YOU CAN~~

Many of you would be great officers. Contact any committee member: volunteer! —don’t wait, you might miss your opportunity! Per CLRR bylaws the only requirement to hold office is to be a member in good standing for more than 6 months. Use the buddy system—Cy & Danny: how about pres and vice-prez. Ok: John Norcio and Robert Jordan or Maybe Chuck & Larry? ….you got the gist of it, right?? Ladies?? Carol Jordan for president with Pat Norcio as vice-president or the other way around! How about the 2 kindergarten teachers to keep us in line?? Pat Sayers and Carol Jordan? Come on you guys! These are good ideas! Committee members are: Barbara Breunig 263-9000 ~Bob Potter 279-2911~
Change is always good for the club. Invite new members. Take an office. Come to meetings or events. Don’t sit on the sidelines, step up! Be active (and if you can be loud you have a definite advantage). J
Food, music and fun for only ten bucks!
Note: as of November 3rd Tom & Trish Bales new address:
707 365-6507 or 925 323-4118 please change your rosters. The ‘master’ roster won’t change again till January

The ride to the Marin French Cheese Factory was made by Margaret, Wayne, Penny, Doug, Cy, Laura, Bob, Susan, Larry and Suzanne.
A cool morning's ride to the cheese factory. Nice day for a picnic lunch. While we were at the cheese factory there were also a bunch of classic cars on site. Since it was such a nice day we opted to ride on to the Point Reyes Lighthouse. Stopped for fuel in Point Reyes Station. Wayne & Penny opted not to ride to the lighthouse....considering the awful road it was a good choice on Wayne's part.
Aside from a road that rivals the awful roads in Lake County, it was great weather and lovely vistas. On arriving at the lighthouse parking lot Susan, Margaret and Suzanne opted to stay while the remainder of the group hiked the 350+ steps down to the lighthouse (after walking up 1/4 of a mile).
When we rode away from the lighthouse it was decided to head north on Highway 1 to a point that would take us to Sebastopol....thanks to Larry's handy GPS we took back country roads over to Sebastopol and then up 101 to home.
A very nice (nearly 250 mile) ride!

Road Cleanup was accomplished by Steve, Susan, Bob, Steve, Larry, Wayne, and Peggie. Suzanne drove Steve's truck.
It took approximately 2 1/2 hours to pickup 11 sacks of litter.
For the first time the recyclables filled an entire mega-sized sack.
After the cleanup many of the group lunched at Porterhouse BBQ in Lakeport.
ONLY 6 people showed up for this club event....WHY? Do we need to reschedule for a weekend so that more may participate? Make your views known at the next meeting. More people need to participate.
We've been busy in July - John, Pat, Carol and Bob left for the Wing Ding on June 28th; Steve left on June 30th; Lynn, Jana, Chuck, Peggie, Larry and Suzanne left on July 1st.
The six who left on July 1st stayed in Battle Mountain, Nevada and Rexburg, Idaho (Steve joined us in Rexburg). After leaving Rexburg the riders entered West Yellowstone and rode through to the northeast exit and on to Hwy 212 over Bear Tooth Pass.
On arriving in Billings, Montana on July 3rd we all headed for our various motels and relative's homes. We met up again at the Wing Ding on July 4th. We also "found" the folks who had left on June 28th.
While in Billings the temperatures were over 100 degrees.
On July 5th we met at Famous Dave's BBQ for a very nice dinner. Although, I think Chuck and Peggie would have preferred to sample the beer instead of wearing John's spilled beer!
On July 6th we once again me at Famous Dave's for dinner.
As we left Billings on July 7th we headed for East Glacier, Montana. The weather cooled off to a reasonable 80 degrees with a little clouds. We stayed a nice little motel called the Mountain Pine - I'd recommend it to anyone who appreciate the Mom & Pop type in a lovely pine setting. Across the street is the Whistle Stop restaurant - good food and not expensive. You will have to ask Peggie and Steve about the huckleberry stuffed french toast!
Glacier National Park's Road to the Sun was open and afforded us all a nice ride and great views. Again, the weather cooperated to make our day very nice. From west Glacier we rode to Polson, Montana along the east side of Flathead Lake.
On the morning of the 9th we headed for Lewiston, Idaho. Larry chose the Clearwater River Canyon as the route.....another very special ride down the mountain to Lewiston.
In Lewiston, Lynn and Jana went their way to relatives. Chuck and Peggie rode on to Walla Walla, Washington. Larry, Steve and Suzanne chose to spend the night in Lewiston.
On July 10th we rode Hwy 97 to Klamath Falls, OR - this was a big day for Suzanne because she had never ridden 500+ miles in one day.
On July 11th we continued on Hwy 97 into California and home. While relaxing at the Bear Creek Vista Point on Hwy 20 we saw Peggie and Chuck ride by so we knew they had made it "home" safely.
Sunday, June 17, 2007
Clear Lake Road Riders who attended included Steve Sayers, Wayne B., Margaret & David R., Larry S. and Suzanne S.
The route was from Lakeport to the Brick in Kelseyville, up Hwy 175 to Loch Lomond Store, down Hwy 175 to Noble's store in Middletown; Hwy 29 to John Henry's in Lower Lake (which was closed); West to the Richmond Resort and then on Soda Bay Road into Kelseyville to end at the American Legion.
The dinner served was tasty - cooked by Ron Chips.

Sunday June 10th saw a great show of support for the Lakeport Triathlon from Clear Lake Road Riders - 8 motorcycles (Paul B., Buzz W., Chuck G., Bob P., Larry S., Steve B., Bob J., John N., Suzanne S.) made themselves available to race officials and camera people. The people who rode with us couldn't believe how lucky they were to have Goldwings as their rides!
I saw Peggy R., Carol J., Susan P. flagging on Hill Road and Scotts Valley Road.
After assisting with riding the course Bob P. and Bob J. "volunteered" to flag some streets in Lakeport for the last leg of the triathlon.
In conversations with the other volunteers it sounds like it was fun and something they would volunteer for in the future.
The only pictures available are those taken prior to the beginning of the bicycle race.

Bobby's wish was to have his ashes spread around the lake. Today was the day for Bobby's last breakfast at Judy's Junction and ride around the lake.
After leaving Judy's Junction with a motorcade 6 motorcycles (lead by Bob Jordan) and Bobby's motor home carrying 8 passenger and Bobby's Harley memorabilia decked "urn" headed east on Highway 20. Along the way Susan, with assistance from John N, released Bobby's ashes as Bob P drove the motor home.
After making the circuit of Highway 20 to Highway 53 to Highway 29 the motorcade stopped at the Visitor Center in Lakeport to spread the last of Bobby's ashes.

Past rides- 4/22 Bike Blessing: low participation due to drizzly weather.

David & Margaret Rutherford were there as well. (prospective members). David had a slippery incident and they got a little muddy—glad there was no damage to bike or person.

Also: I have printed the cards Suzanne designed to give to prospective members. Please pick up a few to put in your wallet.
