MOA Headed to Eureka Springs Again

Next Meeting
Perhaps our last club meeting on a Tuesday will be held February 10 at Martin Regional Library, 2601 S. Garnett at 7:00 p.m. It’s the day after my dental appointment. We’ll auction off some items (see below) from a club member who has retired his riding boots. And gloves. And seat cover. And… well, you get the idea.

Anyone wishing to join me or others before the meeting, I’ll be dining at Big Anthony’s, 8115 E 21st at 6:00 p.m. Great BBQ from what I’ve been told. Continue reading February 2015 Newsletter

Next Meeting
Thursday – THURSDAY – August 14th

Yes, on Thursday!
Hopefully I’ve gotten your attention.  Da room was scheduled by someone else on our normal day, so we are meeting on Thursday at the Martin Regional Library, 2710 S. Garnett in Tulsa. We’ll convene at 7:00 pm as usual, other than being Thursday.

Rate It
Last month we asked club members and email subscribers to rate a variety of possible club activities. Some of them received high marks and others- um, not so much.

We’ll share the results and the submitted suggestions at the August meeting. Continue reading August 2014 Newsletter

Last Meeting

August 13th on a Tuesday and we had about the center 2 tables filled with all males.  Lots of testosterone!  Some spill-over to adjacent tables.

Dave brought the discussion to somewhat organized as he turned the random discussion to roundtable discussion.

We still are discussing our rally.  Why not!  We learn and do better.  Rex announced the June weekends at the Gruber site have filled up for 2014, so we weren’t able to reserve the same weekend.  Moved the reservation into the end of May, which prompted a letter about competition with the Kansas City club with their Return to Oz event on the same weekend.  I brought up some alternate dates, using the annual rally list as a guide to not compete against the weather (impossible) and other local clubs.  Since the club does not have to put money down to reserve Gruber Lodge until shortly before the event, it can still be rescheduled, if desired.  Probably the most advance we need will be announcements through the MOA magazine and their Club Events section.

Coming up is our club campout, which will be Saturday, the 28th of September on the south side of Birch Lake, at Group Site No. 2.  There is a 60′ drive thru for anyone who brings a vacation vehicle, plus whatever cars and bikes we can squeeze onto the pad.  Next meeting we’ll have to discuss menu.  I have a conflict, so cannot make the meeting on Tuesday.

We cornered Kendall Smith and he gave us a quick run down of the travels out west with Bob Gillespie and me, and both of us interjecting.

Queried the club on what events we will be going to the next 2-3 months.

Those not busy the 21st and/or 22nd (Saturday & Sunday) are asked to donate their time watching out for bicyclists on this year’s MS-150 ride taking place exclusively in the Chandler area.   More information is available on our website as a previous article that was distributed to the mailing list.

Last Meeting
I’m filling in for Randy since our usual roving reporter was… well, roving.

We had a moderate turnout for the July meeting and the discussion was casual. Several members were already enroute to the BMW MOA national rally in Salem, Oregon. We got to see a few photos on the club’s Facebook page and will hopefully hear more about their adventures later this month. Continue reading August 2013 Newsletter
