Well I need to say thank you to the club response on Saturday!!! I collected 29 MOA starting mileage forms at Falcone Motorsports our Indianpolis BMW Dealership. Galen gave me his at the Carmel Triathalon on Sunday AM, so I now have 30!!
I would like to say thanks to Dennis Shelly for making the great little spinner he manufactured and donated to the club. Theresa thanks for bringing the club table banners as well. I also need to say thanks to Margie for making herself available to sign forms when Gene was not able to do so, as did Wayne at the end of our day. We gave away 15 t shirts to some lucky winners thanks to Gene, so please thank him next time you see him at Breakfast or at the showroom. Thank you to the club leadership group, for allowing me to do this, it was a great time. In completing my spreadsheet today with the forms I have, plus the riders who participated last year we have the potential to have 47 in the contest, so if a few more members can see their way to join in or we find a few new club members we could hit 50 or MORE! That would move us up the list of finishing states for participation!
I was expecting to collect some forms yesterday, but what a response. I met some club members I had not met previously as well. . Jim Brown was able to take the opportunity to capture a number of photos of members there to use for the club directory as well.
We also will have gained 2 new members as we met a husband and wife picking up their new to them 2008 K1200LT. I am sure they were not expecting to see the club there in force but he intends to go online and complete his membership.
Per my earlier notes, while the contest mileage started yesterday you have until May 13th to have your MOA mileage form witnessed and signed and postmarked to the MOA. Dom, Dennis and Wayne are assisting me in collecting forms at our Club Breakfast at Shapiros until May 11th. If you decide to mail in your own form I would appreciate your dropping me a note with your bike or bikes information and starting odometer reading as I will provide a recap to the club.
Again my thanks, great turnout and great start,
