else written 2019 instead of 2020? I have.
I am having trouble thinking "another year has come and
gone". But it is 2020 and I hope it
will be a great year for all who are reading this.
Chapter A's Membership Enhancement Coordinator,
it is part of my job to make sure that everyone is having
FUN. We already have a few fun activities going on
in the Chapter, i.e., Blue Spoon Rides
and Wingin for the Wad. I would like to
hear from you if you have any ideas or thoughts on how we can put more
our Chapter Gatherings, rides or
events. This is your Chapter and we want
you to have FUN and remain active.
We have made
one small change in the Wingin For the Wad
activity. This is a ride incentive
activity. If anyone who participates
with Chapter A and attends a Ride/Event they will have the opportunity
one ticket for $1.00. If they wear a
blue Chapter Shirt or anything representing GWRRA to show their
spirit, they will have the opportunity to buy one more ticket for
$1.00. These monies will be given away at the
following Chapter A Monthly Gathering. This year we will be keeping 25%
money collected for the Chapter treasury and the remaining 75% will be
and given away in two drawings to two participants that purchased the
during the previous month. This is your opportunity to help keep the
needed for our Chapter operations available and at the same time, have
to win a "wad".
Our Blue Spoon
activity will also be continuing this
year. Anyone can call for a Blue Spoon
ride after a ride or activity. It is
just a fun way (and an excuse) to eat more ice cream. What
can say FUN better than eating ice cream
with a Blue Spoon?
me your ideas for adding more FUN to our
rides, Gatherings or events.
HAVE A GREAT
Happy New Year

in Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) law
Congress passed a law called the SECURE Act which
became effective 01/01/2020. This
link will take you to the Charles Schwab website that tells you about
In short, if
you turn 70 ½ years old after 12/31/2019, you
are no longer required to take your RMD from your IRA at age 70½. This
mandatory RMD is now at age 72. If you turn 70½ in 2019, this
does not apply to you.
