President Report: Thanked club members Digger, Jamz, Just Rob and prospect Justin, who carried the flags and family who carried banners in the Lilac Parade. Would like to use a vehicle or trailer for carrying the flags in the parade in the future. Digger mentioned he had a Bronco to use, Panhead said his neighbor had a duce and a half we could use. It was considered a good idea and will work on it in the year to come.
Thanks to everyone who went on the pre ride to Moses Lake, and for all who came out for the parade and helped out with the booth. We were awarded “The Most Patriotic Booth” at the festival. This maybe the last time we attend Moses Lake festival. Thanks to those who went on our Memorial Day ride. Digger did a good job leading us as road captain. The route he chose was direct and we stayed on the planed time schedule. Thanks to Auxiliary for setting up and starting BBQ. Bringing salads, and deserts. Will do Idaho side this Saturday.
Want to get club Patches back from club members who have not been participating in rides, events, and meetings whether or not they pay dues.

“Ginger” During the fund raiser at Rosauers there were 3 complaints to the manager from customers who felt intimidated by us. We made more than $1,900.00 at Yoke’s and over $3,100.00 at Rosauers and we don’t want to lose the use of these facilities for fund raising. We need to spread out more, not block the entrance doorways. Just say “Hi” and only talk about our mission if asked by the person.
Our cut belongs on our back and not on a chair, bench or anywhere else. The clubhouse is not an exception to this rule. Not to be worn in a car, maybe exceptions when driving in club event with frequent stops. Case by case decision.
Old Business & Miscellaneous Topics: “Dirt” wants to make it clear LIFE FLIGHT won’t cover ground transportation, only does air.
