LEGION RIDERS NEWS:
  Greetings Riders. Well as usual a small turn out for our October meeting, but we had
enough for a meeting.
We had a good turn out for the dance and made a little money. Our
next dance will be January 13th, with Bobby Reed and the Wild Horse Band.
Our next meeting
will be November 12th at 10:30.
Dues are due next month's meeting.)
Well now that riding
season is over and the snowbirds prepare to fly south, there isn't much to talk about or to
report.
I have booked bands for the first 6 months of 2018, hopefully the weather won't cancel any
of them out.
   Ride Safe !
