What's Been "H"appening 12/17/00
by Mike and Sue Hanus, AGWA-Illinois Chapter H

After a week of that consisted of:

1. 17 inches of snow
2. Sub zero temperatures
3. The U.S. Supreme Court finally deciding who won the Presidential
election

AGWA Illinois Chapter H decided they needed to get together & try to
generate some much needed Holiday Spirit.  Sooooo.., THANKS TO THE
HERCULEAN EFFORTS OF KEN & ANALEA ARCHIBALD, 35 members got together at
Rooster's Bar & Grill for breakfast.

It didn't take long for the group to relax & get into a real festive
mood, despite the fact of the onset of P.M.S. (Parked Motorcycle
Syndrome), because of the long winter months ahead.

Fritz Goins won the "door prize" of a winter scarf that was custom
embroidered by Analea Archibald - Thanks Analea!

After breakfast, 11 members drove to Aurora, IL to present gifts to our
2000 "Clause & Effect" family  (Check out the whole story at:

When all was said and done, this day was what everyone needed after a
rough week.
 

Ride Safe & Happy Holidays to all!

P.S.  I have a problem - all the snow that fell last week has resulted
in me developing an intimate relationship with my Toro snowthrower.  I
have discovered that it is jealous of the Goldwing.  Now what do I do?
