FX Thunder H.O.G. Patches
Who wants (or needs) the large rocker chapter patch? This is the size that members traditionally put on the back of their vest, above the "HOG Eagle."

There are also small rocker patches that can go on the front of your vest or on a sleeve of your jacket.

If you're wanting either or both of these patches, let Jodi know -and also let her know what color thread for the patch. Your choices are Silver, Gold, or Heritage Tan.
Strike it Rich! Let's go Bowling
While we're waiting for Spring to come around, we still like to go out and have fun. We're looking to do some bowling at Pla-Mor Lanes in Watertown. They're open Saturdays from 6 till 10pm. Games are $3.75 per person and shoe rental is $3.00.
Which day do you want to go bowling?
Saturday, March 7

2020 Rides & Events
We've already gotten the scheduled rides on our Website Events page , just click the link to see what they are. And we also have some dates open if you'd like to put something together.

Leading a group ride is kind of like motorcycling: you might think it's hard but once you start you'll wonder what the big deal is -it's easy!! Want tips on how to do it? Let Dawn know -she'll email you over all the goods.

Next step is to pick your date & destination:
  • Friday, June 5th: Who is going over to Americade?? This was a popular trip on our ride survey and there are lots of ways to get there -your choice!
  • Saturday, June 27th: Lead a ride to Alexandria Bay for the Thousand Islands River Run -THE most popular event on our survey. Again there's lots of roads to get there and we can help you plan your ride.
  • Sunday, August 30th: Both the date & destination are open on this one -totally up to you!
  • Sunday, September 6th: Same as August 30 and this is Labor Day Weekend (you'll probably have 9/7 off 😎)
2020 Overnight Trip: Kitzhof Inn in Dover, VT July 17-19
To get the group rate – which includes a welcome reception when we arrive, breakfast both mornings, and dinner Saturday night – we’ll need at least 20 people. Double Occupancy = $298, Single Occupancy (limited availability) = $223. 

Sign-up with Dawn (dawnfxchd@yahoo.com, call 315-583-6177, or on the WhatsApp) no later than our March Get Together, March 7th.

Where should we go?
Our Fall Foliage Ride is all set for September 20th (Rain Date 9/27)... except the question is: Where to Go?
  • Delta Lake State Park by Rome -the same place we went to last year, although we'll take new roads to get there.
  • Forked Lake Campgrounds/Buttermilk Falls -close to Long Lake in the Adirondacks, and is one of the Top 13 Places to Picnic according to "I 💗 NY"
  • Chittenango Falls State Park -located in Central NY, just south of Oneida Lake and boasts a 167-foot waterfall.
