"Where The Warm Desert Breeze Meets The Cool Mountain Air"

A.L.R. April 2010

Now that spring is upon us, and hopefully the snow and rain is a thing of the past, we will continue to schedule at least one planned group ride a month for our members. WE ALWAYS DECIDE ON OUR MONTHLY RIDE AT OUR MONTHLY MEETING ON THE FIRST WEDNESDAY OF THE MONTH AT 6 PM – SO PLEASE TRY TO MAKE THESE MEETINGS SO YOU CAN HAVE INPUT ON WHERE WE GO.

I will continue to send out e-mails to you all of PGR missions and any other last-minute rides I plan on going to if you want to join me on a ride.

Don’t forget, if you want to find out what is going on at other ALR Chapters in the State, go to our State website – usalr.org/AZALR. If you want other ALR Chapters to support our poker runs and fundraisers, it is important that we also attend their poker runs and support them. Aren’t “riders” supposed to “ride”?

ALR Post 117 had a grand opening/ribbon cutting, and dozens of ALR riders from throughout the State showed up; I only wish there had been more from ALR 79. Ditto on the Poker Run fundraiser ALR did for Bags, the President of ALR 44, on March 14. It was a great ride that went to 5 different posts, and only one rider from ALR 79 showed up! If we want other ALR Chapters to support us, we have to support them.

WE NEED ITEMS TO AUCTION AT OUR ANNUAL POKER RUN IN MAY. If you can donate something which you think bikers might bid on at a silent auction, please get them down to the Post, to Chuck’s attention. Anything in good shape which someone might pay to buy at the silent auction is needed – and it doesn’t necessarily have to be motorcycle-related, although used leathers in good shape will bring in money.

DON’T FORGET UPCOMING IMPORTANT EVENTS:

April 10: AZALR quarterly meeting at ALR Post 107, 20001 N. Cave Creek Rd., Phoenix. Lunch at noon (Ribs – $6); meeting at 1 PM.
