     Dinner Ride to GTO restaurant in Murdo – Thursday June 9

     The Dinner Ride scheduled for Thursday June 9th to T-34 was changed due to
     a request by the owners of T-34. They were branding calves and asked us to
     schedule a ride later in the year.

     About a dozen riders left Petersen Motors for Murdo in a light rain. There was
     an on and off rain much of the trip to Murdo. The food was very good and the
     extra good brownies Doris always makes for us were the best. There was no
     rain on the trip home.

     Murdo is the orginal home for Central SD HOG, so this is always a special trip
     for our group.

   Memorial Day Poker Run 2011

   The 2011 Memorial Day Poker Run adventure started Friday morning at Petersen
   Motors when we had to change the route due to the forecast for the Meeteetse area. As
   Bill said at the meeting, the chain up areas were clearly marked. Fortunately no one had
   to “chain up.” However, if the route had not changed and we had continued on to
   Meeteetse, there is a possibility we would have had to use chains to get out or opt to
   stay in Meeteetse until summer. And summer doesn‟t look to be coming to that area
   anytime soon. Some riders stayed in Gillette, some in Spearfish, and some of us
   continued on to Deadwood for Saturday night due to the route change. Those of us who
   stayed two nights in Deadwood are glad we did. Curt won so much at the slots and
   tables that they may have to close the doors now and we may not have the chance to
   stay there again.

   The Southwest Buffet served at the banquet Sunday night was very good, we spent
   enough at the bar that the bartender fee was waived, and the dessert was excellent.
   Good Job!! Gordon Slunecka won first prize with 3 Queens, most everyone else at the
   banquet got a prize or money. Several of the cash prize winners chose to give the
   money back and asked that it be given to Red Cross for use in aiding flood victims in
   Pierre. Lots of these donators were awarded an extra dessert. There was a $60.18
   balance after all bills were paid. The amount that was donated back from the drawings
   was $293.00. We will be sending Red Cross a total of $353.18 for use in Pierre.

   As always, we had a lot of fun, the routes we took were beautiful, and the generosity of
   the members of the HOG club and their friends was overwhelming as usual.

   We look forward to next year. Bill and Curt are already looking at maps and discussing
   next year‟s route.
