October 2018



Hi Folks,


     The autumn season is already upon us.  How did summer slip by so quickly?  We have a nice schedule for October and hope you will be able to join us for some beautiful country rides.  Be sure and check the start times.  We start October with a Saturday ride at 9:30 a.m. but the rest of the Saturday rides will be at 10:00 a.m.  As always, please call the ride leader if you have any question about weather or the ride being cancelled.  Of course, our Tuesday rides must end but we did plan a couple Tuesday evening dinners for Gametime on Oct. 9th and Chili’s, Oct. 23rd

   Sunday, October 7th is our annual FOS picnic/potluck at the home of Leonard and Gretchen Epp.  They will lead us on a ride around Alliance and after the ride we will picnic.  Please bring a dish to share.  Hamburgers, hot dogs, tableware and soft drinks will be provided.  If the ride has to be cancelled because of bad weather, we will start our picnic at 2:00 p.m.  All members and their families are invited to attend.

   Sunday, November 4, 2018, NEOSTAR (Northeast Ohio Safe Trails & Roads) will be having Ohio’s first-ever Bike Film Festival at the Highland Square Theater in Akron.  They will be showcasing the world’s best short movies with bicycle themes.  The doors open at 1:30 p.m. with the movies beginning at 2:00 p.m.  Tickets are $20 on sale at the Box Office and at  Sounds like it might be fun to go as a group and possibly out to dinner somewhere afterwards.
   If anyone is interested in going please let me know. 

   We have set the date for our November annual meeting.  It will be Friday, November 16th at 6:00 p.m. at the home of Jerry and MaryAnn LaRocca.  This evening begins with a potluck dinner followed by the meeting and election of officers for 2019. This is a great opportunity to discuss and review our past year.  It’s time to share your ideas for the future and make plans for a successful 2019.  We also have the important task of choosing our restaurants for our winter Tuesday nights!  Please mark your calendars and plan on casting your vote.

   Please be sure to check out our Facebook page, Folks on Spokes-Stark.  Keep up with all the FOS happenings.


Warm regards,
