  President's Ride Recaps
   March Chapter Ride - Palm Springs Air Museum


Unfortunately, our planned ride through Palm Springs Air Museum was preempted again by foul weather.  Since this was our third month of rain on a chapter ride Saturday we decided to make up the ride on Saturday, March 9th.  Once our monthly business was finished we retired to our usual breakfast location, CoCo's restaurant for some breakfast and commiseration about being rained out again.

Saturday, March 9th turned out to be a dry day with some patchy clouds and cool weather.   We had 13 bikes and two groups for our make-up ride to the air museum.  The ride went smoothly and as planned until we started through the bad lands on SR-60 east towards the I-10 east where we were stopped with bumper to bumper traffic for about 45 minutes.  Once through the mess we made it to our destination however our time was cut short due to the traffic delay. After lunch and some interesting chats with the docents, KSU was at 1:30PM when we started up the Palms to Pines Highway back on our route.  The temperature was chilly over the mountain but the ride was great.

Because of our delay we called the ride at our last gas stop to allow everyone to go their own way home before dark because this was the last day of Daylight Savings Time before our clocks sprang forward.  Thanks to Ken for leading group one while I (Scott) led group two.  It was a safe and fun ride finally after all this unusual rain in southern California.

    February Chapter Ride - Fallbrook/DeLuz

Unfortunately,  our planned ride through Fallbrook/DeLuz was preempted again by foul weather, namely; more rain. Rain continued from Friday into Saturday so we had ittle choice but to cancel our scheduled ride. We met at our usual location Mission Motorsports to conduct business. No February birthdays were sung this month. The March chapter ride is scheduled to be to the Palm Springs Air Museum on March 2nd, Bike night is scheduled for February 21st at Uncle Pete's Cafe at 14276 Beach Blvd., Westminster.

Mike Fry presented his Treasurer's report and Dan Beach won the 50/50 drawing. Richard Von Luft, Mike Fry, Johnny Harper, and Dan Beach won the raffle drawings.

    January Chapter Ride - USS Midway, San Diego

Unfortunately, our planned ride to the USS Midway in San Diego with Chapter 527 - Temecula was preempted by foul weather, namely: a lot of rain.  Weather reports indicated rain up and down the southwest coast so we had little choice but to cancel our scheduled ride.  The good news is that we had plenty of extra time to complete our business of presenting rockers to our past officers, Mike Fry, Susan Palaoro, and Mike and Leslie Regner and now Past President Ed Palaoro.  Ed and his team for 2018 and beyond deserve a great big "Thank You" for many years of selfless service to Star Touring, and our Orange County Chapter 230.

I (Scott Hamilton, your new president for 2019), presented my team with their rockers as follows:

Vice President - Ken Indorf
Sergeant At Arm  - Ed Palaoro
Treasurer - Mike Fry
Secretary -Tracey Carter
Lead Road Captain - Don Carter
Lead Tail Gunner - Paul McInerny
Lead Shepherd - Al Piwonka
Webmaster - Susan Palaoro
Raffle Man - Scott Komie
Bike Night Coordinator - Richard Von Luft 
Once the 2019 Ride Waivers were completed, the Charter read and signed, Happy birthday sung to Larry Barton and Raffle and 50/50 prizes presented to Al Piwonka, Mike Fry, Glen Sandstrum and Bob Barbano (the 3x winner today) we all retired to the CoCo's Restaurant for some well deserved breakfast and fellowship.  Our ride planning meeting is scheduled for Sunday, January 13, 2019 at Ken and Gail Indorf's home.
