Yeah, I know, I’m running a bit late this month! Sorry. I am getting ready for and packing for the Tahoe Chill which is coming up this Friday. Should be fun as always and we are in the very capable hands of Lynell and Jenny in regard to their culinary skills and keeping us fed at this event. Thanks to the Klauschies and Harrises for hosting this event. It is a lot of work and I know the folks that attend it appreciate all the effort they expend in always making this an enjoyable event. Pretty sure the bears like it also.
As a club, we are working to try to make the remainder of 2021’s event calendar as busy as possible and I am wondering how it will play out when you consider how the Covid is gonna effect the remainder of the year. Will the Delta Variant send us back to 2020? I am hoping that doesn’t happen but, we should be prepared for the possibility. We are proceeding with Manchester Beach preparations for Oct. but at the same time a lot can happen between now and then. Being optimistic.
The Lost Creek campout in Lassen National Park is scheduled for Sept. 17th and 18th. The plan is I drag my travel trailer there and provide a couple of meals to attendees. The problem (another problem) is the surrounding area is involved in the Dixie fire and the park is presently closed. So here is another possible cancellation. We will keep a close eye on conditions at the park. Fires and Covid! Really?
On a sad note, We have lost a good friend and club member in Laura Musgrave. Unfortunately Laura was involved in an accident in southern Utah and did not survive it. WE will miss that big smile and big personality she brought to all of our events. Ukulele jam sessions will also be remembered when the campfire is lit! Took 12 years to get me to sing around a campfire. Laura actually pulled it off! She was recently recognized in the BMW ON magazine with her riding mileage last year. She had no fear of a long ride. We will miss her.
I want to encourage you all to fill out the emergency contact information on this site. It is a new feature in your club profile and you should complete it. It will help someone help you if the need be. Capt. Ken posted a tutorial and it is a quick and easy add on to all of our profiles and long overdue. DO IT! Please.
We will see some of you at the “Chill” this weekend. Bought a new bear horn. The thing is frickin’ LOUD! Should scare off bears in the next county. We shall see.
See you all soon. Take care and above all, never ride faster then your guardian angel.
