RCB’ers: I have had it with all of you and am resigning as RCB President effective immediately, purchasing a Harley, and moving to Elko, Nevada!
BELATEDLY… April Fool’s!!!!!!
But seriously, folks… Can it get any better than it was today on our glorious club ride throughout the foothills? Captain Ken outdid himself finding new roads tucked in among the well-known routes we have all ridden before. After a very nice turn out for the April meeting (we may need a bigger meeting room soon!), we had 19 bikes participate in the ride. Both events show that the Club members (and the larger society, I presume) are finally coming out of their COVID-induced hibernation. There is clearly a lot of pent-up demand with raffle ticket sales off the charts the past two months. It will make our esteemed Treasurer clutch his spreadsheets even more tightly, but I may have to start spending more on prizes to meet expectations.
Fred “Ride to Eat” Jewell’s brainchild is off and running. Check the Forum for the latest rules (since Fred seems to add one or two each week) and get out there and find some new places to visit and enjoy. We have been cooped up for too long. LET’S RIDE!!!!!
Make sure you sign up for the relocated 49’er Rally being held this year on the Memorial Day Weekend (as usual) but up in Quincy (rather than its tradition home in Mariposa). RCB will be handling the poker runs (yes, there will be two of them!) with cash prizes to the lucky gamblers.
The Yerington Ride ‘n’ Bowl is making its post-COVID return in July. The lanes have been completely renovated although I doubt the same can be said of the River City Beemer Bowlers’ kegler skills. No matter, as long as we all dig out those old “RCB Squared” bowling shirts and wear them with pride.
Our ex-ex-president, Mike Robles, had the valves on both his GS and the ones on his heart checked. The bike was fine, but Mike needs a valve adjustment and goes in for the procedure in a few weeks. Our thoughts are with him and we look forward to seeing him out on the road again soon.
I can’t believe how lucky I am to have such great friends, great roads, and great events each and every month. Appreciate our shared good fortunes and take care of yourselves and others. Ride safely (and often!).
Cheers, Gordy (Your Once and Future RCBPREZ)
