Thoughts on 2020
Some exclaim…”Where did the year go?”. Some exclaim even louder…”Thank goodness 2020 is almost over!”.
It would be an understatement to say that it has been an unusually challenging year for families, schools, jobs, and business. It also had an impact on associations, such as ours. Low or even no attendance at events, rides and Gatherings were common. We are starting to see the light at the end of this long, dark tunnel.
What better way to socially distance then to ride our motorcycles with a group? A little planning for breaks, restroom stops, and meals makes it very possible and quite attractive for the riders among us. Restaurants, in some areas, have opened their doors for Gatherings and park pavilions are well suited for Gatherings in the areas that do not have the option.
We had over 70 Members attend the All Chapter Picnic in September in Green Bay, Virginia for games, food and GWRRA family. The lifted restrictions are allowing us to gather at the end of October for Rally in the Valley, a tradition of rides, training, food, vendors and being with those who’s company we enjoy. Beside our bikes, it seems that food is a common denominator!
How sad it was to deal with isolation and changes to our routines, but no better time than now to knock the dust off the bikes and get back into the hobby we love and share. For some of us, the riding season may be coming to an end, but the “gathering with friends” season has no end! Just do it!
Looking forward to breaking bread with many of you during the remainder of the year and planning for, what will be, an incredible 2021.
