February / March 2019



Hi Folks,


We had a wonderful Ground Hog's day celebration Friday, February 1st.   I want to thank all the folks who attended with their great food and beautiful singing voices.  I especially wanted to thank our hosts, Ellen and Ray Thompson for inviting us into their beautiful home.  Even with all the snow, Ray had the driveway and sidewalks as clean as a whistle!  It really was a fun evening and I think  our Ground Hog's Day anthems sound better every year!


At the ride planning portion of the evening we discussed scheduling rides for March.  Normally, we would schedule rides for Saturday and Sunday but this year we are going to try something a little different.  We will not have a specific schedule but anyone who would like to lead a ride any Saturday, Sunday or midweek should contact our Road Captain, Randy Williams or Jerry LaRocca, Doug Bower or me.  We will then send out an e-mail with start time, meeting location and type of ride.  These should be rides of 20-25 miles (less for Sunday) with temperature 45 degrees or better.  Please check your e-mails for any of these "flash rides".  Because of the uncertainty of weather these e-mails may be sent as late as the day before the ride.  In years past the weather in March hasn't been too good for riding but since the ground hog did not see his shadow (he must have heard us singing his praises) this year may be better.  Thanks in advance to all those who will lead rides in March!


Just a reminder to all that membership fees for 2019 are now due.  Please mail a signed completed membership application and your check to our treasurer, Pam Feit.  All this information can be found on our website,  Also, please check out our Facebook page, Folks on Spokes-Stark.


Hope to see you all soon,
