Brothers and Sisters,
 
As the weather took a change for the worst with the rain in the month of October there was still some nice days for riding. Unfortunately for me, the riding was at a minimum for family reasons that kept me out of town.
 
Will J, Sam, and I did do an overnight ride to the Kinzua Skywalk. I hope you got to read about the ride on the IBEW Website? Great area to ride, but our trip was cut short when we woke up to rain.
 
If you do a ride, please write about it and take pictures and send it to me so I can get it on the union’s website.
 
The MRC was invited to ride with IBEW L.U. 141 out of West Virginia on Friday, September 21st. IBEW #5 also attended. It was great to have another IBEW from another state contact us about joining our local MRC for a ride. The MRC’s all met at the Wild Things Ball Field in Washington, Pa. Unfortunately, I was out of town and hoping to get a report and possible pictures of the ride.
 
We have an MRC “OPEN RIDE” to the Viet Nam Traveling Wall. The “Wall Ride”, is scheduled for Saturday, October 13th. I have sent out information for those who plan to attend to contact me so I can schedule a meeting site or sites for us all to meet. We will go to lunch afterward to Dick’s Diner on Rte. 22 in Murrysville. I’m waiting to hear from MRC members and our union brothers and sisters as to who will be attending. I need to have that information by Wednesday, October 10th.
 
Hopefully, we will be able to do a “Fall Ride” to Cooks Forest to see the beautiful colors this time of year. I will let you all know as soon as there is a date.
 
Don’t forget the last MRC meeting of the year will be Saturday, December 8th, at noon, at the Steak n Lube in Cranberry.
 
In Solidarity,
Jonesy
