I would like to thank all of our Atlanta H.O.G. members for showing the Charleston H.O.G. Chapter a 'heaping helping' of hospitality during their recent visit with us. They had a good time and were impressed with the new shop and the friendliness of everyone they met there. Again, THANKS!


Yes, it is that time of year again. Time to nominate officers for 1998. Do you know of someone who you believe will do a good job in one of the officer positions? Well then, fill out the nomination form in this newsletter and drop it in the box in Rene's office at H-D of Atlanta. The deadline for nominations is Oct. l. This will give us time to contact all of the nominees to see if they will accept the nominations. We will have the 1998 Officer elections at the October Chapter meeting on Oct. 16th.


The 5th Annual Georgia State H.O.G. Rally is less than 3 weeks away. Mike and Karen Volk are leading a ride to the Rally in Jekyll Island Thursday morning, September 11th, meeting at the shop at 8:30 AM and leaving at 9:00.T hey will pick up a group in the Texaco parking lot at Hudson Bridge Road and 1-75 at 9:45AM. This promises to be a real 'barn burner' of a rally and one which you should not miss. Jim and Rene Durham and the rest of the organizers have put a lot of time and sweat into making this the BEST EVER! Plan to attend!


How do you feel about moving the monthly Chapter Meeting to Saturday morning instead of Thursday night? Our objective is to make the meeting date and time as convenient as possible for a majority of the members. Call or grab one of the officers the next time you see us and let us know how you feel.


This year the Chapter will furnish the hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken and soft drinks and ask that you bring a covered dish of the usual things (deviled eggs, bean dip, desserts, salads, etc.) We are planning to have some new field events this year to spice things up a little bit. We will start serving at NOON, so be there! You will find a map in this newsletter of how to get there. We will also have a ride leaving from the shop that morning at 10:30 am. We also need volunteers to help set-up (tables, chairs, field event stuff, etc.) the morning of the event and should be there at 10:OOAM. See you there!
