District Report – March/April 2017

Hello to all from Rim Country.

Despite getting over 12” of snow about three weeks ago, the snow has melted off, the roads are clear and dry and we are having beautiful spring weather on February 10.

Don’t know what’s coming, but riding in Rim Country right now is great.

Come on up.

Many of you are very familiar with the Pine/Strawberry area and I’m glad to announce that what was the Grizzly Saloon in Strawberry will be opening in April/May under new ownership as the Pirate Restaurant and Dirty Cowboy Saloon.

They will offer a full bar and excellent menu.  This will be a great ride destination.   Things are going to be busy this Spring with our annual Bikers and Babes event to be held on February 11.

This is a fun get together for our district to play silly games, socialize, and celebrate Valentine’s Day.  Our first annual fund raising event, Bikini Bike Wash, will be held on June 17, 2017 in Pine at the Old County Inn.

See the flyer in this issue of the Patriot.  We have a rifle raffle going on now and the drawing will be held at the Bikini Bike Wash.

We are raffling off a Weatherby Vanguard Series 2 rifle in .300 Winchester Magnum.  Tickets will be available th at the 25  Annual Freedom Beach Party on February 25 in Cave Creek.

We also have a safety and awareness booth event to be held here in Rim Country in May.  We wish everyone safe riding.  Come up and see us in Rim Country.

It’s beautiful up here.
