Bill & I just got back from a great conditioning ride in the BLM hills around our house with the mule string and Lilly & Sam; who decided they should bring their human too.  I will only speak for myself, but it seems each year it takes a bit longer to get in shape.

At the May meeting, our Treasurer Kay, confirmed the Yard sale was record breaking! Chaps off to Terry, Gail, Charles, and Ellen for organizing this event and all the members that came that day.  This Yard sale is one of four fundraising activities, which enables the chapter to purchase equipment items like the large saw, radios and contribute other costs for Trail activities and Education endeavors.

The First Aide and CPR Class was held May 31st and June 1st  at Charles and Ellen’s place and yes the Chapter provided the dinner. Our own Dan Murphy volunteered and taught this class and did an outstanding job, as usual.  In fact, I received an email from him that he is looking into what it would take to get this Training to the next level for perhaps next year. Not exact, but may be something similar to First Responder training, perhaps something for next year. More details to come in the future and Dan no rush on this. Enjoy your vacation time with family.

I am fortunate to have such a great working relationship with VP Doc Shannon. She has agreed to take on a new project and will be reviewing current trail information and pulling it together in an effort to provide trail information to members. Why? To try and get more members involved. I am sure we will be hearing more from her on this project.

Another idea for increasing membership involvement is to provide some fun incentives such as cash and/or gas cards to come join us on activities.  We are also looking into a Spring Membership Appreciation ride and there is even talk of a Thank you for joining us BBQ this fall.

Hope to see you on the trail!  Please check out the activities as there is something for just about everyone.   Don’t think you have to go on everything as we all have life, but come join us when you can.  We offer a variety of activities to appeal to more members, vs.  just having 3 or 4 things in a year.  Rob Adams does an outstanding job planning things ahead for us.

I just had to include this photo, but my only question to you three , is how many women does it take to saddle a mule or is their more going on here?
