Mary If you would let the other posts know that might be interested I would appreciate it. I have attached a flyer for next weekend. I plan to meet anybody wanting to ride to Fredonia Friday at the Lowes on East Kellogg at 9:00AM to get to Fredonia by noon. We should have time to eat or refuel our bikes before Joyce and Hideout HOG arrive. We will lead them to the Kansas Star to get refreshed and get ready to ride back to the Post by 6:00PM for the ceremony. I am planning to have the ceremony inside this year due to the heat this year. Big Mac Combo will be playing as well. I will pick up the meal before Friday. I am planning on Lasagna and salad and maybe garlic bread. Saturday the plan is to leave the post at 9:00 to ride to OKC and Fort Thunder for the hand over of the flag to the Robbie and the Oklahoma riders. I should also mention that Saturday at Fort Thunder is Military Appreciation Day. If anybody is staying in Wichita Saturday for a while Alefs HD is also having their 11th annual birthday bash and calendar contest Saturday. One last item. If you are riding back to Joplin Saturday you might like to stop at our newest motorcycle museum in Kansas. Twisted Oz Motorcycle Museum is located in Augusta next to the Walmart. I will have more information on that Friday. Any questions let me know. Larry
