Hello Adirondack H.O.G.!
Happy New Year ADK HOG! I hope everyone had a nice holiday season. Donna & I traveled to Kentucky again this year. We had a nice time spending time with our daughters & their families. Our Grandson has been riding a 4 wheeler for a couple of years. I coached him a little & had him riding a 50cc dirt bike before we came home. Riding that little bike was quite fun! I was upset to find all the snow melted when we got home. (No snowmobile yet!) There was very little sign of the big storm that hit Buffalo this fall. Just a few piles of snow were left in parking lots.
The Chapter bought wreaths for the Saratoga National Cemetery again this year. 400 or 500 people were there to lay out wreaths. This year they had 4000 wreaths. Wayne Lamothe, Bill Nestuk, Lisa Pritchard & I helped this year. We missed you Milt & Dottie! There was a lot of snow this year, but it wasn't as cold as previous years have been.
I hope everyone has had a chance to look at the 2015 McDermott's calendar. I'm sure you will recognize some of the people, rides & events in there. Lots of happy faces & great memories!
Sunday brunches are continuing this year. They move around, so check the calendar. (All brunches start at 11am.) Our January Chapter meeting is on Jan. 18 at the Saratoga Elks Lodge at 10am. Come early for breakfast. I'm sure I will see some of you soon at brunch. Have a safe & Happy New Year!
We had a nice turnout for the January meeting. We gained 5 new members. Welcome Earl, John, Chris, Beth & Bill! Bob Leombruno & Ken Carpenter were both very busy in their new positions.
All our members are welcome to contribute to this newsletter. Jokes, pictures, trip stories or just plan lies are welcome. It was great to see Bill Novotny & Milt Smith in the crowd. They both look like they are ready to go.
Mike B. is still looking for more road captain help. Even if you would like to be an "apprentice", you would be welcome. Mike is also looking for new destinations, restaurants, ice cream stops or just good roads. Call, e-mail, or Facebook him with any ideas.
That's enough rambling for now, see you at brunch!
Bye for now.

Hello H.O.G. Members;
Here is the good news - bad news article. First the bad news, always good to get that out of the way. We are still in the middle of winter, with lots of crazy weather to go. As I am writing this they are predicting a "historic" snow storm for New York City and the southern parts of New York State. The good news, is there is more good news than bad news. The first good news is that the amount of daylight is increasing each day. The second bit of good news is that the average daily temperature is increasing. The next piece of good news is my HOG package has come, which to me means that riding season, or at least preparation for it has begun. It’s a good time to start thinking about getting our equipment ready for next season by planning any maintenance or upgrades. It’s a great time to get good deals on motorcycle equipment. Soon we will be getting ready for Adirondack H.O.G. Cook-off and the Bike Blessing, and soon enough we will be out riding again. Hope to see you all out at brunch and up at the shop.
