Last meeting was the chili cook off. We had some great chili and a good turn out. Linda Bright won first place.
It was a fun meeting. Thanks to Lanny and Brenda for your hospitality.
See minutes for more details.
ABATE swap meet was held at the Little Rock fair grounds. Greg Bright and I set up a booth to promote the club.
We did hand out a lot of flyers for the September show and talked to a lot of people. The bike show had a barn 
find Indian , 1947 I think , that was really cool. Also a Harley Knucklehead and a 1971 Harley FLH. The bike show was small and less venders that last year.
I wish ABATE well but they need more venders and people. Maybe next year.
