“It was a dark and stormy night” typified the conditions our members faced at our section meeting on Thursday January 7, 2015: the first meeting of the New Year. It was frigid, the winds were howling and the snow flying. So much for calling this Canada’s Sun Parlour. But still and yet, despite the weather, 16 members braved the elements to share in conviviality and revelry. New business was rather sparse. Dale spoke of our section breakfast run on January 18th at the Route 42 Diner (Route 42 and Walker Road) at 8:45 a.m.; a bus trip sponsored by the South East Michigan BMW dealer to the International Motorcycle Show in Cleveland on Saturday, January 31; and, on the same day, but in the evening, the annual Windsor Motorcycle Stag at the Teutonia Club. Members were asked if they could lend their bikes for display and/or help with trailers to get them there as we did last year. Dale will contact members closer to the event on the details. Dale gave the end-of-year financial statement and we are still in the black. In the round table discussion, Kevin spoke on bike batteries and the effect of the cold. Some of our members attended the Supershow and said it was cheek-to-jowl, attendance-wise. Mike pulled my ticket on the 50/50 and I redirected the proceeds back into the section’s coffers. Adrian won a raffled set of Harley prints. Next meeting will be Thursday February 5 at 7:00 p.m. at the Brews and Cues. Hopefully, the weather will be more cooperative. 

Cheers for now, 

Syd Girling
