Are you having fun yet? If not, you need to check in with your nearest GWRRA Chapter and your life will change. We are all about having fun and we can prove it. We have more events planned with great local chapter rides mixed in that there is NO TIME TO BE BORED! In September, we have the District Picnic on the 6th that will be at the Confederate Memorial Park near Prattville, the Region A Convention in Eufaula the 11th, 12th and 13th, AND the Ride for Kids event in Leeds on the 21st. Wow, I’m tired just writing all this stuff down. Just think of all the fun and fellowship we all will have going to and experiencing these FUN TIMES!!! Let the Good Times Roll as they say somewhere in the country! Don’t let anyone ever tell you that all we do is ride to eat. We do a lot of that but that is not all we do. We love people, fun, fellowship and experiencing new things and all of you help us do that.
Your local chapters have some great rides and events planned also and you must check out their calendars to see what is going on with them too. Don’t forget that just because you are associated with your local chapter it doesn’t mean you can’t participate with any and/or all of the other chapters. When you join GWRRA, you belong to the whole organization and all of the chapters. You are welcomed to attend any event or meeting with any chapter and you will be welcomed like you are at your local chapter and MAYBE even more-so. It is great to experience other chapters’ lives too and they really do appreciate it! You won’t be sorry you did!
Remember that GWRRA is a wonderful association and we want all “good folks” to be part of our great family. Share your calendars and your experiences and feel free to call me or Kathy anytime if we can assist in some way with you. We look forward to many more miles of riding pleasure with all of you and please be safe out there. That’s the only way we can continue to make it fun.

Well the year is over half gone. Where did it go? It seems everyone is out riding and going places. “Time flies when you’re having fun.” It looks like the Traveling Plaques, both Region and District, are getting lots of attention.
The District Rally for 2015 will be Halloween in MAY. So, now is a good time to get your stuff for the talent shows, your Dioramas for the theme challenge, and your Mascot competition. Halloween is just around the corner so there is a lot of good stuff on the shelves now (try Dollar Tree for a bargain).
On a good note, we have been doing a good job of recruiting this year. We have about 7 chapters that have gained some of their expired members back. Keep up the good work. The sad note is we are still losing members. Everyone please work on retention. A lot of the members we are losing are the one year folks that we failed to get involved in one way or the other. The rest is folks that just don’t ride any more due to health or age.
I have got to send this. It is work time.
Hope to see you all in Eufaula for the Region Rally.

August is almost over and the children are back in school. Football is back in swing even. It has been an exciting month for us. We started off by visiting with our home chapter "N". They had some visitors and we were glad to see everyone. Chapter N's Couple of the Year is Gerald & Debbie Russell.
The 15th we went to Prattville and visited with Chapter Z. They had some visitors other than us also. We enjoyed our time with them. We met their Couple of the Year, John & Cathy Shumway. We even carried home a door prize. Debbie Russell rode to their meeting with us.
The following week we headed to Breckenridge, Colorado for the Colorado District Convention. We drove our car and Gerald & Debbie Russell rode with us. WOW is the only way to describe the area. Beautiful! The rally was great. They fed us Thursday evening hamburgers, hot dogs and watermelon and CAKE to celebrate their anniversary. Friday morning we attended the Couple of the Year selection. They had several participates and they were all excellent Couple's of the Year. They also had Individual Selection with 2 participates. During the Opening Ceremonies Jon & Barb Pons resigned their job as Colorado District Directors and are in the process of moving to Florida. Let's see, they are the International Couple of the Year and are now living in Region A Country. That's nice! Then Friday evening we had a sit down dinner and entertainment. They do know how to have fun in Colorado.
Alabama N won a certificate for Largest Chapter in attendance outside their Region. Dallas and Jimmy from Chapter N won certificates for Lighted Bike Show. Alabama District won Largest District outside Colorado District and Alabama Region won Largest Region. I know Chapter N had a good time. They had 5 bikes and 1 car in attendance. The car drove to the top of Pikes Peak and we bought T-shirts that says: Elevation: 14,110 Feet"
Being This High

In Most States!
Mark your calendar: September 6th is the District Picnic at Confederate Memorial Park in Marbury. Time: 10:00 A.M.
September 11, 12 and 13 is Region A Convention in Eufaula. Let's Celebrate Freedom. We are looking forward to seeing all your smiling faces there.
