This years GEAR Rally is in the books. The weather cooperated and I think everyone had a great time. The WV State Fairgrounds has had some improvements since the last time we were there and it is a great place for rallies. The roads in WV are always great for motorcycling. And the locals are always glad to see us. We had coffee and donuts every morning and ice cream. There was an open air eatery on site that had very good food. The entertainment was very good each night. We had a chapter pizza party and we picked up a few new members at the chapter fair. Our chapter came in second in the bean bag baseball game.
Rally began on April 20 and ended on the 24th. Weather was great. Attendance was light. A lot of our members were heading for family gatherings. New members Gary and Tina were welcomed to the group. The Fayetteville Campground and Resort has made some improvements since we were there last time notably the kitchen, that was a great asset. Jan and Dave Fowler organized and the rest of us just pitched in. Food was great and we did get in a few games of cornhole.
