Boy, what a productive business meeting we had. I would like to thank everyone who came out, especially Dean Mull and Tom Sigerfoos. We have a lot of great ideas for the upcoming year. Our business meeting is open to all members, so if you have any ideas or suggestions please come and join us, and who knows ... we might even feed you dinner.

In this newsletter you will find that we have put together a tentative schedule for 1999, notice this is tentative, it could change. So, you will need to read your monthly newsletter to get the true schedule for that month. From time to time we will update the list.

Daytona Bike Week will be here before you know it. It's time to get your bike in for service. Call Gary in the service department to make an appointment and call Nelson to get that special part that you have to have.

I am very excited about the upcoming year. We have planned (tentative) to have more rides than ever before. We will have at least one (1) overnight and two (2) day (Lunch or Dinner) rides a month, maybe more. With all these rides we are going to need some help. We are going to have five (5) Road Captains this year to help in the planning, leading, and mapping of each ride. They are: David Gilmer, Dean Mull, Tom Sigerfoos Eb Struss, Mike Volk

Each ride will have a Chapter Officer or Road Captain in the rear to follow-up and assist anyone that may have problems. Overnight trips we hope to have a volunteer with a vehicle/trailer to follow in case of trouble. We all must remember, however, it is our individual responsibility to have our bikes serviced and in good operating condition before going on a ride.

If any member has a ride they think the Chapter would enjoy, please contact me, any officer, Road Captain, or come to one of our business meetings to discuss your thoughts. Don't miss out on all the fun. Come and support your Chapter and enjoy your Harley.

(Ride Safe and Have Fun)

First of all I would like to send my deepest sympathy to the following people: First, to Debbie Evans, our Office Manager at HDA. On December 28, 1998, both of her sons were killed in a car accident. Next, to Sandy Corbett who lost her best friend and husband Keith. We will deeply miss Keith at the shop and we thank him for being our friend and to Chaney Bryan for losing his brother and a H.O.G. member, Bill. We all will greatly miss each and everyone of them.

Our Best Wishes to B.K. Ellis who just had heart surgery. Get well soon.

We need volunteers to help work the Hospitality H.O.G. table with refreshments on February 20th. Call me at the shop to be put on the schedule.

HOG CARDS are to be picked up at the shop!!!

Ladies of Harley


1999 is going to be another Great year. Once the weather warms up we will have lots of rides, events, meetings, and sales to enjoy the fellowship of our members.

The purpose of Ladies of Harley is to support the chapter. We provide an identity for the Lady Riders and Passengers, but always supporting the chapter and all members. Any events or rides sponsored by Ladies of Harley are for all members to participate.

I plan to sponsor several rides and events and look forward to working and riding with you all.

Ride Safe and have fun.

Ladies of Harley Safety Officer

1999 looks to be a busy year for everyone at H-D and I hope a safe one. Night comes quickly this time of year so if you ride a lot at night, remember to get some reflective wear. It's hard enough to be seen in the daytime let alone at night. Lot's of stuff comm'in up, so stay tuned.

Ride Loud, Ride Proud, See YA!
