RE: June 4 Cabellas Charity Ride

Here is a link to Biker Bob's HD dealership in Taylor. Every year they host the big charity run for the Penrickton School for the Blind, a very worthy cause.

I thought it might give Redline some nice PR if we got a whole lot of us to ride in this thing.

http://www.bikerbobshd.com/events.cfm

The quote from their site is:
"Biker Bob||s Harley-Davidson sponsors Michigan||s largest charity ride benefiting Penrickton Center for Blind Children in Taylor. This 5th annual charity fund raising ride begins at Cabela||s in Dundee and travels to our Taylor, Michigan, dealership. The cost is $20 / person before May 20 ($25 after and day of registration). The first 1500 registrants receive a special ride pin. 100% of proceeds benefit Penrickton. Enjoy food provided by Carrabba||s Italian Grill, live music, special in-store offers, and entertainment. "

I have been on this thing 4 or 5 times.
If we all signup early, we save some cash.

The ride begins in the Cabela's parking lot in Dundee. There have been over 5,000 bikes in the ride.

We could all represent Redline. We could meet for a breakfast and then head to Cabelas for the lineup.

The ride ends at Motorcity Harley (Biker Bob) with a BBQ, band and so on.

I don't think we have anything going on that day so we'll probably make it out.

Sounds like a good cause and I would be up for it.

Uh-oh. I forgot...

That is what happens when you don't look on the calendar.

Hopefully, the Grand and Glorious Gate Keepers of Redline will realize the intelligence of moving the date of that meeting in favor of being well represented at the charity event.

No doubt, there are a ton of charity events out there. Some seem to be more in need than others, IMO.

I used to do alot with the Thin Blue Line, the group who supports police officers who have fallen in the line of duty. Then some information came to my attention and while I support them in spirit, I no longer support them with my time and money. I am sure it is still a worthy cause.

I support this charity because they are very worthy and they recieve no tax money. It is all done out of the pockets of those who care to help.

The Penrickton School for the Blind requires that its students be blind and have at least one other handicap. Mental retardation, paraplegia and so on all qualify.

I know that I have a hard time learning and I am considered to be "normal." I cannot imagine doing all that these kids do considering their being blind as well as having other challenges.

Think Helen Keller. I do not think that I could have achieved what she did. So, I try to help this group.

However, as you note, there is a dirth of charities out there. We cannot help them all, so we have to pick and choose.

I thank God everyday that I am whole and in great health.
