To My ABATE Friends,

This is the August article and that mean summer has about come to an end. It has been busy and sometimes there is just not enough time in a day. The products trailer was at the Freedom Rally where we signed up some new members and as always, we made some new friends. As I said last month, it’s kind of a surprise, the number of riders out there who don’t know what we do and who we are. We need to get out more and let riders know that we are here fighting every day for all bikers and invite them to become a member of ABATE.

With the Freedom Rally on my mind, I’ll tell you it was a hot 4 days. To all the good people that organized, worked and attended – thank you! At events, one of my favorite things is the bike games and let me tell you, I did enjoy the games! They did a great job putting them on and the participants, well, I think some had been doing some practicing. The entertainment was a great mix and very easy to listen to. There was also a bunch of vendors. All in all, just a very good time.

Labor Day weekend is the Easy Rider Rodeo in Chillicothe. Very few members have showed interest in helping man a booth. If we do not get more volunteers it won’t be happening. if you are interested in helping please contact me. It is a long weekend and its going to take more than 4 people to make it work.

This is the last month to sell and buy tickets on the Raffle Bike. On Saturday, August 25th, everyone needs to be at The Original Margaritaville in Sandusky, Ohio. The party will be on starting at 11am with the last drawing at 9pm for the bike. Remember this is a money maker for each individual Region and the tickets sell easy if you talk it up.

This is an election year so support your local politicians and most of all, the ones that support us. This is a good time to stop in and see them because right now they are spending time at home, drumming up votes. Please study up on them and make wise choices.

Its time to start planning for the ABATE of Ohio State Seminar 2019. It will be at the Embassy suites in Dublin, OH on February 2, 2019. Please start making your plans because lots of good stuff happens there. Back a few years ago we had the seminar at the Embassy Suites and the Managers Happy Hour is the bomb. Don’t miss it!
