Free bike washes were offered throughout the month of April 2019, but only if you left your ride outside. At this writing, it is on track to be one of, if not the, rainiest Aprils in recent memory. But that did not deter the riding faithful.
The club had a lunch ride to PortoFino’s on April 9, located in beautiful downtown Krum, Texas. The outing combined a fun day of riding on the great roads northwest of Robson, with some delicious Italian food. Robsonites always get treated well at PortoFino’s, and the owner had a big table set up for the great turnout this day. Elaine and Edward Barnett, Steve Haugen, Mary and LT Bryant, Dee and Jim Sico, Vicky and Scott Baker, Marti and Mike Conley and Steve Williams all had fun and ate well. Thanks to Jim Sico for handling the Ride Captain duties. The club had originally planned to ride to Pelican’s Landing Marina in Gordonville, Texas, but the owners had the audacity to be closed on the day we chose.
The club board met on April 18 to discuss our current status and plan for upcoming events. We welcomed new members Ron and Mary Ann Bane, Rick and Debbie Andrews and Bob and Cherlyn Conway and look forward to riding and socializing with them.
The regular fourth Thursday night Dinner Ride for April was moved to Monday, April 29, in order to accommodate the great Support Our Troops Golf Tournament, and the plans were to go to Los Amigos Restaurant in Lake Dallas, to get an early start on our Cinco de Mayo celebrations. Vicky Baker and Jim Sico handled the Ride Captain and Sweep functions respectively. The restaurant review will appear in next month’s edition.
We are looking forward to the Arkansas stay in the Golden Era ride in May. Destinations include Hot Springs and Eureka Springs and the Mena Mountain Resort in Mena, Arkansas, home of the Ouachita Mountains.
