January 2020 Newsletter

Tuesday, February 4, 2020
Happy New Year!  2020 is upon us and we started it out with the Polar Bear Run at 3 Rivers Harley Davidson. Started out at 32* but by 11 it was up to 38*. That’s why we have electric heated saddles, liners and gloves.
 
The MRC received a very nice Thank You letter from the Beavers Falls Christian Assembly for our donation for the Christmas Toy for Kids program. Thank you to Brother Onuska for letting us know about the event so we could help out with this great event for the kids.
 
We had a great time at the Cleveland Motorcycle Show on Saturday, January 25th. We had 9 show up and all rode together in a 15 passenger Van with Brother “Wooz”.
 
Our first MRC meeting of 2020 is Saturday February 22nd at the Steak n Lube in Cranberry. The meeting starts at 11 AM. All members of IBEW L.U. 29 are welcome even if you are not an active member in the MRC. If you are planning on going you must contact me. This is so I can make arrangements with the Steak n Lube on how many will be attending.
 
This meeting we will be mostly discussing what, where, and when are rides for this year will be. So, if you have a ride you would like to present to the MRC make sure you bring the details of the ride.
 
This past year we had a lot of rides and donated to 8 different charities. Also, doing several lunch rides as well as the IBEW East Coast Ride. Those who are interested in the IBEW East Coast Ride can contact the union hall or contact me for details.
 
Our Safety Officer Bill Braun has planned a Level 2 Motorcycle Safety Foundation training class. Anyone interested in attending is to contact Bill.
 
This year we are planning more scenic rides as well as several overnight rides. Two possible rides are actually 2 nights and 3 day rides.
 
Also, if you ever heard of Rolling Thunder in D.C. during the Memorial Day weekends, you probably heard last year was the last time Rolling Thunder will take place. Well that’s true. But, the AMVETS took it over, so it will be happening still. They call it “Rolling to Remember”. You can register with the AMVETS to receive any information they send out at rollingtoremember.com
 
I hope you can join us on Saturday February 22nd at the Steak n Lube in Cranberry at 11 O’clock.
 
In Solidarity,
