Sunday was the Fort Worth HOG Chapter Picnic! This is an annual event and our second time attending. It is held at the Canyon West Golf Course in Weatherford, TX. We met at the dealership to line up for the parade ride to the golf course. This year the weather turned out very nice from the previous year. Early on it was a bit chilly being 58 degrees. The temperature soon warmed up to the mid-'70s. The parade ride went well without issue and it turned out to be a very pleasant ride to start the morning.
Riding The Cart Paths
Upon arrival, those that wanted to ride the golf course staged while others parked their bikes. This is a unique opportunity that Canyon West allows us. We ride our bikes on the cart paths for all 18 holes. The Chapter then stops on the 9th for a photo shoot of the Chapters members. It's a whole lot of fun and brings a good laugh to be able to do this. Golfers are taking pictures of us and waving as we ride on the cart paths while were waving and taking their pictures in return.
Next on the agenda were bike games! I love the bike games. We are a motorcycle riding group thus bike games only make sense! There were 5 bike games offered and Margaret and I did all of them. I was very proud of her because she competed in the single rider slow race even though she is still new to riding. She said she didn't want her fear of trying something new on a bike to keep her from doing it. The bike games included a single rider slow race, couples slow race, ball drop, road kill toss, and weeny grab. We did well again this year taking 1st in 4 of the 5 bike games.
Lunch And Prizes
After the games, there was a yummy lunch and home-baked sweets to satisfy our hunger. Shortly after eating lunch, the monthly Chapter meeting was conducted, and prizes for the bike games, and raffle ticket prizes were given away. The day concluded with a water balloon toss and a poke and run game. I was the unfortunate victim that broke the water balloon and got wet.
With all the work you do on our bikes you deserve a few vanity parts for yours 😉
It looks like the bikes are coming together nicely!
Margaret has the right attitude about riding, get out there and do it. It is fantastic that she isn't one to let fear stop her. I am sure your encouragement helps.
LOL, I used to have to give her that little pat on the back and say "you can do it" and watch her hesitantly ease in to what ever it was she was doing. Now though shes jumping right in the midst of activities dragging me along! At the picnic I told her she didn't have to do the slow race to which she replied "Forget that! I'm doing it! If you want to sit on the sideline and watch me go ahead!" Shes unstoppable and it's awesome.
