    The WINTERFEST 2023 to celebrate a safe and fun 2022 riding season is IN THE BAG!   Thanks to all who showed up (48 of you), and a special thanks to all those who assisted in organizing the Party:  Roger Pivonka, Paul Mitchell, Mark Rense, Don Poremski, Duncan Cooper, Don Walker, Dottie Buckon, and especially Eric Aguiar from Helmet House who donated the Grand Prize package! Also everyone who assisted in our scramble to find a location!  Keep looking – we will be at a different location for 2024 most likely.  Burntwood Tavern/Solon had limited staff, but they did a great job – especially our two waitresses, Allie and Tanya. And the food was amazing. Hope to see you at WINTERFEST 2024!
