It seems some decent riding days have finally arrived to the Sun Parlour despite the cold rain on the night of the meeting Thursday, April 3. However, it didn’t deter 24 members from attending and Mike even showed up with a Triumph Bonneville, albeit in the back of his pickup truck. I’m thinking isn’t Canada a wonderful country where we can get a sunburn and frostbite in the same week? The round table discussions see members emerging from hibernation, getting back to work on projects and out for rides once again. On that note, our well-attended Wednesday get-togethers are now at the Essex Bypass Tim Horton’s at 1 p.m. so, weather permitting, we can ride to Timmy’s and perhaps go for a ride post-coffee. What is encouraging is seeing Rene walking again without support: now Kaneless and Abel.

Sylvia drew Kevin's name for the 50/50 prize of $24 and as seems now to have become a tradition - Kevin donated it back to the section. Thanks muchly Kevin.
A reminder about Paris - the price goes up on May 1st from $20 to $35 for members. If members want to register they can do it on line or directly through Dale.
Our next meeting is MayDay or May 1st at the Brews and Cues at 7 p.m. (Workers of the World Unite Day) Perhaps we’ll even be able to ride there if there isn’t a revolution stopping us.
