September Newsletter Thanks to Independent Motorsports for letting us set up at their Dyno Days event. Met some new faces, sold some bike raffle tickets, and "spread the gospel" lol ! While I'm at it, Thanks also to Kolman Fuzy. He's been doing a great job all summer setting up at bike nights in the area and giving us some exposure. This years 9/11 Poker Run and fundraiser auction are coming up on September 15. Sign-up starts at 9 at The Ugly Mug (Canal Winchester), poker run 11-4:30. The auction starts shortly after, and all of the days proceeds go to help Central Ohio Veterans causes. Come out and have a good days worth of riding and hanging out for a good cause. Look for the flyer in here. There's a glitch in our 31st Annual Toy Run. With the closing of Toys R Us , we're left without a starting place for our parade. As this goes to print, I'm still working out a new location. Save the date, plan on coming, and look here next month for the starting spot. As in recent years, we'll be doing our fundraiser to help out National Guard families at Christmas (Operation Santa Claus) that afternoon. Y'all come on out and dig on some holiday spirit ! Flyers on the way. Don't forget that the September meeting will be on the 9th due to Labor Day. If you haven't been to The Point (Main and Noe Bixby), ya oughta drop by. Nice patio, good food and beverages, and a cool staff. We lost an old friend with the passing of Burgess Martin following yet another central Ohio crash. Aside from being a long time supporter, he was always willing to pitch in when needed and ALWAYS good for a laugh. Miss you, man. Condolences to his family. Please, PLEASE always ride with your best and safest riding habits. How about no more deaths in our family, huh ? Enjoy the rest of the season. Roger 9
