On Sunday, February 18th, 7 people road to the Citrus Fair in Cloverdale....a lovely, sunny, windy, day. (The fair was half the size of Lake County's - sort of tells you something!) Once again we headed a restaurant that had the audacity to be closed on Sunday. Bummer. We ended up eating at the Mexican restaurant...wouldn't bother going there again.
Almond Festival was a bust...wind, rain, clouds, sun, more rain.
Here is hoping March weather is almost as dry and sunny February!

Steve Biggs reported on the last Adopt-a-highway date. Seven members picked up 16 bags of trash. A motion was made to reimburse the person holding this office for gas expenses. The members unanimously agreed that the captain of this office to be paid $10/per pick up date. Effective immediately.
A page of standard hand signals for group rides was passed out. This is especially important as more of our group is a blend of those with radios and those without!
Lynn Hollenback & Jana Van Housen paid the ‘new ride’ fine of $5.00. Congratulations!
Reminder: Ladies Choice will be the Sunday following the Wednesday meeting. Members are encouraged to suggest their favorite rides.

On January 7th a group rode to Willits for lunch. The Mexican restaurant wasn't open so we ate at the Chinese Buffet. Then we rode over to the Phoenix Bakery for goodies - they were closed for a "Phoenix" holiday (not sure what that was). Too nice a day to go home so we rode to Ukiah for coffee.
Awesome weather contributed to a successful ride around Clear Lake.
Following the ride a barbeque was held at the Kelseyville Lions Club....who provided the facility at no cost. Big thanks to them and to all riders who enjoyed the day.
