Well here we are with another month gone and we are beginning to get back into a normal kind of life.  Still trying to be as safe as possible while getting out and visiting each other again. 

We attended the Chapter T Spring Fling in May and had a great time.  They had a couple of terrific rides in the mountain twisties, along with some great fellowship and good food.

On Saturday June 6th, we held our first breakfast ride since the lockdown.  Eight members met for a meal at the Sonic south of Conyers. It was really good to see everyone. 

We also held our Dinner Ride to Los Charros in Conyers on Tuesday, June 9th.  I hope we're able to have more of our members out and enjoying rides together soon.

Thoughts & Concerns
Peg Hopkins 

I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying your time staying safe.  It is the hardest thing we have ever done in my lifetime.  Beginning to get out more and trying to get back to some type of normal lifestyle.  Continue to stay safe.

Please keep Lawana Burrell in your thoughts, she had another heart procedure on May 14th  but it was an outpatient procedure.  Talked with her on late Friday, May 15 and she said she was feeling OK but if you know Lawana that is what she tell you every time she has something done.  She got home at 5 on Thursday afternoon and her procedure went great she said.  Hope she is feeling better each day.
Some you know Ron and Becky Lees from South Carolina, not sure what chapter.  Ron had been fighting the Covid-19 virus for weeks and last report he was in ICU still fighting.  Becky was quarantined at home for 14 days since she tested positive for the virus.  Please keep them in your prayers for a complete recovery.

I am sad to tell you that Cal Krefft, a member of I-2, Lavonia , passed away May 12th .  According to Sharon, his wife, he passed away quietly.  Please keep Sharon and their family in your prayers.  If you would like to send Sharon and family cards their address is
    Mrs. Sharon Krefft
    153 Mountain Springs Drive
    Clarkesville, GA  30523
As always please contact me or Bonnie if you have any concerns or need help for any reason.  Continue to keep our country in your though and prayers during this time of confinement and try and keep all guidelines in your everyday lives as possible.



Motorist Awareness Info

Life Grand Master Tour Rider

April is normally National Distracted Driving Awareness Month but the National Safety Council (NSC) has published that they will try to do something in October this year.  I will keep you posted on any updates.

May is normally Motorcycle Awareness and Motorcycle Safety. I will also monitor NSC’s website for any updates about this.

As your ChA MAPC (Motorist Awareness Program Coordinator) I will try to incorporate MAP events into our normal rides & events for the rest of this year and maybe, just maybe, the World, United States, Georgia, GWRRA and GA ChA will get back to a new normal in a short while.


Ride Cooridinator Info

Chapter A is finally getting back to riding, having events and socializing.

In May, ChT had their annual Spring Fling in Dillard, GA.  A few ChA folks went up and joined in on their FUN.

In June, ChA had a breakfast ride, a dinner ride and is planning its first regular monthly gathering, eat & meet.

We will continue to schedule and plan rides and events.  As we do, safety, health and wellness is our top priority.  We encourage you to attend these rides and events but continue to maintain social distancing as much as possible and hygiene (washing your hands). Please keep in mind that most of us are in the "high risk" category.

GWRRA Updates

WOS (Wings Over The Smokies), the annual North Carolina Rally has been cancelled for 2020.  I have heard rumors that NC will try to have some sort of "riding" event in its place.

The annual Georgia Rally is still on for October 8, 9 & 10th, 2020. It is a "Ride In" and is exactly like it sounds, a riding event.  If you like to ride and especially if you like to ride in the North Georgia Mountains, you need to send in your registration and make your room reservations as soon as possible.  A Ride In flyer can be found on the GWRRA Georgia Webpage.

Wing Ding – The Annual National GWRRA Rally
Has been rescheduled for Springfield, MO for June 29 – July 3, 2021  Registration, room reservation information, etc, can be found on the GWRRA Home Page.


If anyone has any items for sale, please send pictures, info and the sale price to Bob McCroskey.  We'll get them listed on the web.
