CHAPTER MEMBERSHIP RENEWALS
Chapter membership renewals are... PAST DUE!
January is time for membership renewals. Regardless of when you joined/renewed last year, everyone renews in January. However, you can renew at the Ring of Fire shop or at the next chapter meeting. It is important to renew quickly in order to prevent an interruption in your membership benefits and chapter commuinications.
Remember that chapter membership requires that you keep your National H.O.G. in good standing.
GET YOUR MILEAGE IN
Time for 2013 starting mileage!
It is time to send your beginning mileage in to our mileage officer Loren Crandall. Loren's rule is: If he hasn't sent you a confirmation e-mail, he doesn't have your mileage.
Please be sure to send your beginning and ending mileage to firstname.lastname@example.org even if you have already sent it once, so we can be sure Loren has EVERYONES!
It doesn't matter how many or little miles you rode this year, it all adds up!

Our dinner rides begin on the first Tuesday in April and go through the last Tuesday in October. The dinner rides are held every Tuesday Night, Rain
or Shine. We meet at Boswells Ring of Fire and ride from there at 6:30 p.m. to a different restaurant
each week. If you are new to the group or have never attended a dinner ride, you are missing a real treat.
The size of the group changes from week to week but, we always have a good crowd. Each week a
different person leads the ride and we take the most scenic route available. I can't stress enough
how much fun these rides are. It is also a great way to get to know others within the group because it
is a smaller group than the big ride events on the weekend. Remember, if it rains, come on
anyway and we will head out in cars. Plan to attend a dinner ride this year and
I promise you won't be disappointed!!!
Welcome New Members
We would like to extend a warm welcome to our new members. Feel free to contact any of the officers if you have questions or would like more information about upcoming events!
Sign up on the Ring of Fire

us to get information out to our members quickly and efficiently.

board, the calendar and all of the other options the site gives
you. If you have questions contact any of the officers or the webmaster they will be glad to answer them.
Would like to hear from you, the members

Join us for our New Member "Meet & Greet" Ride
The first of these this year is going to be in sometime in March.
This ride will leave the Ring of Fire shop at 10:00 a.m. This ride will give some new members and riders a chance to see
how we ride in a group, hand signals and etc. But we encourage all members to attend.
It will give us a chance as members, old and new, to learn more about each other and
build new friendships.
