Hello TCDers,

This marks the end of yet another great year of riding for the club. We hope everyone has enjoyed their 2017 as much as possible, because 2018 is rounding the last corner and heading right for us, chock full of more shenanigans, hooliganry, adventure, and maybe some riding - get ready!

November Ride Reports:

Edmund Fitz Run: One of the Edmund Fitz Run attendees eloquently recounted his ride, "snowflakes in Saginaw, rain from Flint south, a good ride," and given the potential for nasty weather, that's a pretty good run indeed. We always assume the Fitz Run will be a chillier one, but just how the weather plays along is more of a toss-up. Each year is different, and this time most TCDers found warmer activities than enjoying the dwindling days of riding left this season.  

Jack Johnson was the sole rider this year.  He was joined by Dave Hayt and Rick Ploeger & son who traveled by 4-wheels to East Tawas.  

TCD Holiday Party:  Approximately 40 members guests made their way to the Michigan Beer Co. in Novi for some holiday cheer.  Our seating in the dueling piano bar was a bit more rambunctious than we planned for, but it was a good time!  

New & Old business:

Breakfast Schedule (Calendar)The official start time of the Sunday Breakfast has been moved back to 9:00am. While some want to get there early, it makes it difficult for new members to feel welcome when everybody is finished eating before the 9:00 am starting time. We're a friendly group, let's make sure we roll out the welcome mat for new attendees!

Club Elections: Congratulations to the new officers!!! November 1st has come and gone, so the below officers are officially elected for the 2018/2019 term.
  • Mike Eckstein President
  • Michael Drew Vice President
  • Craig Grissom Secretary/Treasurer
  • Lukas Eddy Editor
I've certainly enjoyed my time as an officer of this club, and can wholeheartedly say it has been a genuinely rewarding experience. Thanks so much to all the club members that have made the last four years so special.

Congratulations again to the new officers!!!
