June 17th A.B.A.T.E. Poker Run

Great day for a ride - not many riders participated in the poker run.

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.

Triathalon One O One Volunteers

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.

11. Road Captain report & Rides:

Past rides- 4/22 Bike Blessing: low participation due to drizzly weather. Sayers, Potters, Steve Biggs all got blessed & a little wet, then came home for the car and finished at the Boathouse for a good lunch with a stop in between to check out the home/garden show at the fairgrounds. 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.

4-28 Sayers went to Occidental. Steve led but had no followers…guess everyone was in Redding for Fallen Rider.

New Business: Bob made a motion to donate to Nick Norcio for the KISS A PIG fundraiser to benefit local charity-there were several who seconded the motion and it passed to give $100 & in exchange we got 4 dinner tickets for the KISS A PIG dinner –those tickets were given as ride prizes at the BRMR ride.

Also: I have printed the cards Suzanne designed to give to prospective members. Please pick up a few to put in your wallet. They’re very attractive and a nice way to invite people we see around town that aren’t members.
