New position - new meeting arrangement
Back by popular demand, I am happy to announce that Chapter 230 is returning to weekly bike nights! To assist me with this task I have created a new position within the Chapter and appointed Richard Von Luft as our official Bike Night Coordinator. Richard will be responsible for selecting and posting the locations of our bike nights each week. He will also be posting his recap of the evenings events. The Bike Nights will still occur on Thursdays at 6 pm. Our original and official bike night will still be at Portillo’s on the fourth Thursday of each month – but the other three to four Thursdays will be coordinated by Richard. Please join me in congratulating Richard on his new position!!! -from Star Touring Chapter 230 Facebook
It took some effort and time along with creativity and crazy humor in writing weekly messages to get my personal meeting bulletins and meeting reports noticed by a number of people. Ed our president has been a real supporter of my efforts along the way, even when it seemed the content was misunderstood or misinterpreted at times as to what I was trying to accomplish with my creative writing style mixed in with some material a lot of folks seemed to think was rather funny or at least worth a chuckle. The humor part just seems to pop up somehow and the rest is an effort to make reading what I wrote entertaining and informative to help boost attendance at weekly meetings. Now that Chapter 230 will be back on track with weekly Bike Night meetings every Thursday in locations long favored by members it will make it easy to do the write-ups but I’m hoping the humor will still be there.
Right now nothing strikes me as very funny, except for some of the new reality shows that are exposing a number of strange subcultures and hidden communities in our midst. You have the Hutterites Colony, The American gypsies, Hoarders, people eating toilet paper and who knows what else. It has gotten so crazy that the Amish are now considered mainstream everyday Americans. Looking at the faces of people in these close-knit cults and religious communities you can tell there is some evidence of inbreeding just by looking at them. This should serve as a warning among my many motorcycle friends.
