CYCLES-N-RODZ Grand Opening:

The Club had 15 bikes on display inside the shop on the work racks in the air conditioning. Several members were present. There was music, door prizes, and food, that ran out , but they got more. A very large crowd was present and they had a golf cart to shuttle people from the parking lots. The grand opening was great and we wish them success.

Thanks for asking the Diamond Chapter to be present.

Closing Comments

The 7th Annual Motorcycles in the Park, Can you believe we have been doing this show for seven years. We have come a long way since the first show. We had 54 bikes in the first show at the Arlington Lawn and it rained like hell.

Last year was by far the best show ever, we had 108 bikes, great weather, and lots of people all day.

I would like to thank everyone for all the work that goes into making this show a great success and to everyone who has put their bikes in the show.I have had nothing but positive comments about the show. Really makes me proud to be involved with the show.

I would also like to thank Fred Anderson and the Hot Springs Rally for putting on a great rally.

See you at the meeting on Sunday.

Ride em, don't hide em,
