Last Saturday's Ride for Dad.

   Excellent turnout of about 25 bikes from our Chapter including member's and guest's for this worthwhile event. Trip from Orillia to Barrie was somewhat dis-organised but once clear of Barrie, enjoyed a very pleasant trip with just our group. See picture above, more in the Photo Gallery 2010.
   Next day was again well attended for the ride through Collingwood, Thornton down Beaver Valley Road with a lunch stop in Singhampton. See you all Wednesday evening, weather permitting for the ride to the Classic Car Night in Port Perry.

Sunday May 16 Ride to Minden

   The weather was sunny and warm for a perfect ride to Minden for lunch today. Seventeen rider's plus two passenger's were in attendance and I believe everyone had a great time. Three ladies again graced us with the presence, Dianne, Nicole and Barb, thank you again ladies for making our Chapter look better.
   Just a reminder that we are riding on Wednesday evening's from now on, meeting at Arby's at 6.oo pm and departing at 6.30 pm SHARP for a short ride.

Base Borden MC "Spring Warm Up"

   It's sometimes a very fine line between "Hero's" and "Crazy Fool's", but seven "Hero's showed up for the Base Borden MC "Spring Warm Up" this past weekend. They were, Bill Banks and his soon to be Bride Lou, Dale Harris, Larry Purdy, Pete Randle, Jim Wright and myself.
   The day started off with rain and very cold, then progressed into more rain with wet snow and even colder, I got a little worried about the other rider's until I looked and saw everyone with a big smile on their face, well done guy's.
   The practise course was well set up by BBMC with a qualified motorcycle instuctor present to assist rider's through the course, it wasn't a "Cake Walk", one of our member's who shall remain "Nameless" blamed his bike for his performance. Seemed like a great idea which we all decided to follow.
   Sunday was Mother's Day and was way too cold for any Mother's to show up, we'll hope for warmer day's to come soon.

   WEDNESDAY NIGHT RIDE WILL START THIS WEEK, MAY 12.  we will meet at Arby's at 6.00 pm and depart at 6.30 pm. These Wednesday rides will be mostly a short ride getting back to Orillia around 9.00--9.30 pm.
