Sorry I didn't get this out sooner but I've had alot going on.

Friday night run
Attached is the flyer for the Friday night football run at Ridgefield High School.
They want lots of bikes and lots of noise. We are supposed to rev our engines in front of the grandstand, then shut down and listen to the national anthem. Then restart and make some more noise as we round the track and exit. All participants are invited to attend the game (free admission). We will meet at 6:30PM at the school to stage. KSU at 6:45PM. All interested should RSVP to Ron at (360) 574-8070 so we can get a head (bike) count. 
Thanks for your help in spreading the word about this event.


Regular meeting tomorrow, Saturday 9/19. 8:30 AM Breakfast, meeting 9:00, Hometown Buffet.

We will be riding up the Washougal River to the Car show with Cliff & Lori at the American Legion. We may make a stop at another show on the way. Hope you can make it.

Love & Blessings

Fwd: Hands Across the Border Information

Here is the flyer for the Hands Across the Border picnic coming up the end of this month.  Please share this with your members and encourage them to be part of this fun gathering as we prepare for ministry at the Oyster Run the following day.
We will have sign-up sheets available so folks can plan their Sunday. We will also have a time of prayer for all the workers that they will have opportunities to minister and that the rag tracks to be handed out will be used in a mighty way.
If you have any questions about either event, please be sure to ask them.

Report: Pro Caliber Show and Shine

Star Touring put together it's first Show and Shine at Pro Caliber this last Saturday and they did an excellent job!  The event was held to benefit the charity, Bridge the Gap, which provides products and services for teenagers, an often overlooked group with many needs.  They raised approximately $1,500.00.  There were 13 vendor booths set up.  Carl was there bright and early with our CMA booth and Cliff and I helped to set it up.  We were there all day with many CMA members stopping in to enjoy the show and say hello.  We distributed free ice water, (it was REALLLLLY hot, our booth was in the sun all day), CMA bike cleaning cloths, and motorcycle Bibles.  Several riders expressed an interest in joining our chapter.  Cliff and I tried to help out the other vendors and people running the show whenever we saw a need.  There was a bike show with first and second place trophies, free barbecue lunch provided by Pro Caliber, and at least 50 great raffle prizes.  The highlight of the day was the 50/50 drawing.  The total was $1,500.00 so the winner would take home $750.00.  The gentleman who won, I didn't get his name, donated all but $100.00 back to Bridge the Gap.  It was a really well run, well done, enjoyable event.  Hopefully, they will do it again next year.
