NOT SO MUCH SUNSHINE FOR SOME

We were sorry to hear MATT MOSHER & DARREL SPARKS were in a car accident May 12th. Apparently some lady came out of a side street and t-boned them sending Matt to the hospital. Both have bumps and bruises but will be okay. Their car was totaled. Get well soon guys. We need you in June.

* * * * * * *                                                                                                         And after 5 months DON WEYANT has swelling of the knee from his accident. They drained fluid from the knee and that seemed to help a bit. We miss you guys. See you at the Anniversary party.

THANKS GOES TO OUR MAY RIDE LEADERS……….

WAYNE SPEARMAN led a ride up to the Papiros for some great BBQ. As passenger MARY SPEARMAN played the role of navigator and between them the ride was wonderful. Thanks goes to STEVE & JANIS PAPIRO for an awesome lunch at their beautiful home in Santa Ynez.

And REX LEHTO stepped in and led a nice ride up to Los Olivos when Don Weyant was still recovering from his accident and couldnt do it. As always thanks goes to our ride leaders. Try organizing and leading a ride. Until then you cant appreciate the time and effort these folks put in.

SAFE TRAVELS GO TO DAVE & JODI BEHN

Dave retired and they’ve moved to Tucson, AZ….Jodi wrote “Would you please let the group know how much we enjoyed riding with them, and becoming friends with you and David and the others.  This was certainly not what we  expected to do this year.  I hope sometime in the future we can join you for something if you ride out our way.  We are outside of Tucson and have spare rooms if ever you find yourself out this way.Thanks for hosting a great riding group and I hope you have a fabulous celebration for the club anniversary.  Sounds like it will be so much fun.

Jodi Behn”
