With regards to the coronavirus, a note about future club events.


We hope that this note finds you, your family and friends in good health.


Your Executive Committee have been discussing ongoing and future club events and we wish to provide an update on where we see things going with meetings, rides and other events.


The May club meeting has been cancelled.


Assistant Road Captain, Stu Greene’s weekly (typically Wednesday) rides will continue.  A meeting location will be designated (may still be outside of MAX BMW or elsewhere) to start the ride.  For lunch, we will stop at a picnic area along the route, so each participant is asked to pack a lunch and drink.

Road Captain, Mark Altschwager, will also continue to lead day rides as he has in the past and he will be following the same protocol as Stu, i.e., bring a lunch and drink to enjoy at a picnic area along the route.
The May ride to Lexington, VA has been cancelled.

2020 Charter Oak Rally


After much discussion, we have decided to cancel this year’s Charter Oak Rally.  
The rally committee will be getting together in time to plan for next year's rally.  If you would like to be a member of next year's rally committee, please contact us at

In lieu of this year's rally, the rally committee is thinking about having a summer picnic (maybe pot luck?) once the coronavirus pandemic is behind us.  Watch for more info as we work out the details.
Now that the weather is warming up, maybe it’s time to get out for a ride to clear the winter cobwebs.  What a great way to practice “social distancing”.  

Our Road Captains have been taking advantage of this spring's nice weather with several day rides.  Watch your emails for announcements and consider joining one of their rides or take that ride local to your residence that you've been thinking about this winter.   

We will continue to monitor the CDC recommendations as well as all national and state mandates when reviewing our club’s activities.  Watch for emails as we move forward during these trying times.Stay safe and healthy with hopes of our world quickly returning to a more normal lifestyle.
