News from Chapter “J”
From Tom
Chapter J Director
The Burn Camp Challenge is over, most of us along
with our bikes have been blessed several times
(desperately needed by yours truly) and our spring run
to the mountains is a fond memory. WOW, what a
great start to the season.
A big thanks to everyone that helped with these
events as I know many of us had a great time and…we
raised over $500.00 for our favorite charity, the Michigan Burn Camp for Kids. Nice work everyone!!!
As we look to the upcoming summer and the many
rides and events we have planned I’d like to ask that
we all continue our awesome support of Gary and Carol
as they travel around the state fulfilling their responsibilities as our District COY’s. Chapter J has always
been a large group at many of the events held by other
chapters and now that is more important than ever.
Our COY’s need not stand alone!! Wow, that
sounded pretty profound didn’t it? Anyway, let’s have
some fun in support of them, OUR COY’s.
Every month and every event I continue to be
amazed by a few of our members. You all know who
they are. The ones we can count on to bring the food,
organize the events, design/edit our newsletter, lead
the ice cream rides, coordinate our ticket sales and attend all of our events to help wherever and in many
cases whenever needed. I can’t thank you guys
enough!!! Without you all Chapter J would not be what
it is today, thank you!!
Once again, as we head out to the open road I’d
like to thank you all for being part of our family and I’m
really looking forward to a great 2014 riding season. I
know you guys will be doing everything you can to
make it fun for everyone.
Ride Safe. Ride Often.
Tom Taylor aka Yellow Wing
MIS Training Schedule for August
July 31 from 6 to 9pm for the August race. All
training is in the Michigan Room at MIS, same as
last year. Anyone wanting to work the race needs
to attend the training session. We need a commitment of 8 for the August race.
Happy

Day

Warm Weather Worries
This month I would like to consider taking the advice from
Wingless where we were encouraged to plagiarize good
material. This topic might seem old news to most , still I
think its extremely relevant remembering 5-10 years ago a
seasoned rider and wife were on I-94 near Race Rd on a
wing and crashed with critical injuries, I seem to recall later
it was said heat likely was the cause.
Motorcycle riding is an activity that takes all of us outdoors. For many of us, the riding season is comprised of
summer with some spring and some fall periods. For others, the best riding times are during the spring and fall seasons due to excessive heat in the summer months. For all
of us, we are likely to be riding in hot weather at least some
part of the year. Since too much heat can cause severe medical emergencies, it is important to know how to
avoid becoming a victim of the heat. So how do we avoid
heat stress, or more severe conditions like hyperthermia, to
remain safe? Let’s review some warm weather riding tips.
First, make sure you have gear appropriate for the
weather. Consider what you will wear to cover your arms
while riding in direct sunlight during daylight hours (if you
are lucky enough to avoid the rain). If you have it, a mesh
jacket provides unparalleled ventilation and abrasion resistance. A denim shirt is another alternative that is fairly light
weight and offers better protection than t-shirt material Protection is important, but keep in mind that when you are
comfortable, you are able to focus on the act of riding.
Denim is a common choice for long pants, but you
might want to think about purchasing motorcycle-specific
riding pants for extra protection. Gloves are the other area
where the ambient temperature is usually factored into the
decision of what to wear. Perforated leather gloves will
breathe better than solid leather. Another good choice
would be mesh gloves which, like the jackets made of similar material, provide great ventilation coupled with superior
abrasion resistance. They are worth considering. Consider
carrying a water absorbing collar that you can soak in water and wear around your neck to help keep you cool. Or
be prepared to soak and wear your shirt or t-shirt at a rest
stop in the hottest weather.
Second, plan to maintain your hydration level. Every
time you stop for gas or a rest break in hot weather, take
time to drink enough fluids to replace what you
lose through perspiration. This should be at least eight
ounces per hour during the heat of the day. You may think
that your clothes are not holding an entire cup of sweat that
you could wring out of them. And that is probably true.
(Continued on page 6)
5
Cascade Wings
While you are riding, some of your perspiration is
soaked up by your clothes and is carried away by the air
flowing around you. And some moisture evaporates directly from your skin. It must all be replaced to keep your
system hydrated.
A simple way to determine if you are getting
enough fluids is to monitor your output at rest stops. In
short, if you are drinking frequently but don’t have to
go at each rest stop, then you probably are not drinking
enough. Modify this as necessary for your own situation. Carry a bottle of water to drink from whenever you
need it. Be sure to refill it at rest stops.

From Gary and Carol
2014 Michigan District COYS
I ended the last COY article by saying we were getting
ready to leave to go to Frank and Deb King's installation
as the new ADD's for the north. That was a fun time
and a learning experience.
Tom shared with you last month about how the best
laid plans... Since we knew that Q had the State
plaque, and you only need four chapter members
dressed in chapter attire, we invited others to come and
join in the fun. We didn't think about that phrase of
'dressed in chapter colors.' Never entered our minds.
But we soon realized that when we are at an event
as State Staff, we are NOT in chapter colors, and therefore, we do not count! So, even though we, along with
our CD and Treasurer came the most miles, the beloved State plaque went to J-2. Congratulations to J2! Yes, a learning experience, and well, J has had fun
with letting us know that 'we don't count!' We can feel
the love!
Along with many of you, we were busy with Chapter
J at our Annual Mall Show at the end of April. This begins with set-up on Wednesday afternoon, and ends
with tear-down Sunday afternoon. It's always a good
time, but was made a little more fun with visits from
other chapter members from around the state. I'd like
to thank them for making the trip on such a cool day.
We'd also like to encourage you to visit other chapter's events. It not only makes for a nice (hopefully)
ride, but encourages other chapters in what they are
doing. We also just had our Burn Camp Challenge this
past weekend. I must say, we had high hopes for it as
we had heard from 'bikers' all across Michigan and even
Ohio, saying they were coming.
However, the weather did not cooperate--again. I
said it's like the children's story of Goldilocks and the
Three Bears. Last year we held it July and it was 'too
hot.' This year in May and it was 'too cold.' Does that
mean next year we should hold it in June and it will be
'just right?'
Some might say it wasn't that successful, but it
was.
We had great success in participation of setting up
the games, photo area, food area and registration.
We had success in having FUN while we were
there in spite of the weather.
We had success in participation of tearing down the
event. Chapter J--you came through!
We did have a few visitors from around the state,
and Thank You to those who came!
We did raise funds for the Michigan Burn Camp for
Children, so thanks to all who donated!
Coming up next for us will be the Indiana Spring
Warm Up, which actually will be over by the time you
read this. Gary and I have plans to visit with more
chapters this summer. If there are any of you that
would like to ride with us, we'll be sending out emails to
let you know when and where we're going. Enjoy your riding season!
Be blessed,

2014 Chapter J COYS
Chapter J is gearing up for the summer riding season.
We had our first ice cream ride of the year with a beautiful
(and not too bumpy) ride to Stockbridge. Pretty sure that
was the warmest day we’ve had so far in 2014. Ron and
Diana Miller even ventured over and chatted for a bit with
everyone. It was a great way to start things out. Don’t forget, there will be surprise homemade ice cream on one of
our rides this year. Jeff won’t even tell me when it is
though!
Thanks to all who helped with our Burn Camp Challenge on the 17th. It was very well organized and we were
ready! The weather wasn’t on our side however and it may
have scared some (a lot maybe) riders from coming. Gary
and Carol, a huge ‘Thank You’ to both of you for all the
extra work you put into the event. Hope you two didn’t lose
much sleep planning everything. For any members that
didn’t know, Gary added a new game this year, and it was
a ton of fun. Interesting… the ways you can use a tennis
ball! Ask Gary if you don’t know what that means.
CD Tom Taylor brought the new Chapter banners that
Gordon and Ella May Rudolph designed and ordered,
which by the way were amazing. They were a very classy
addition to Saturday’s event. Make sure you get a chance
to check them out.
Quite a few Chapter members showed up for the MIS
training class Tuesday night. Our drivers and ambassadors are ready to go for the Father’s Day race coming up.
And, a new trike is in our group. If you have questions ask
Larry and Karen. They can fill you in.
We hope everyone had a fun Memorial Day weekend, no matter where you were. We enjoyed Whitey’s Ice
Cream in Iowa after loading our son’s furnishings to come
back since he will soon be working with a Chiropractor
here in Michigan.
See you on the road… Let’s roll

Thrusday when I was getting ready for bed, I noticed my
mail on the table, so decided to see what it was. To my
surprise I picked up an envelope that had a return address
for the “Circuit Court”. I knew before I opened it that it was
a Jury Summons.. Sure enough that’s exactly what it was,
but not for County, but for the Federal Court. Date to start
was June 23, 2014. Well needless to say I got very little
sleep. I read it completely and especially the excuse part.
It didn’t sound to promising of being excused.
So I decided to call the court to see what I could do.
After going through 5 recordings I got a real person to talk
to. She was very helpful. I told her about our vacation
plans and how long I had wanted to take this trip. She
suggested I ask for a postponement. I still needed to fill out
the Questionnaire and send it in. I informed her that we
were leaving on Monday June 2nd and not be back home
until June 30th would I get an answer approving the postponement request before we left since with the holiday
they would not receive my request until the middle of next
week.
She put me on hold and after about a minute came
back on and said we have put a notation in your file that
you will be postponed for the June date and put on the
September/October Jury Summons, so “GO AND ENJOY
YOUR TRIP. In the background I heard this “Have Fun”. I
did have to pick a date so I selected September 15th. But
what a relief that I didn’t have to postpone our trip. What a
truly nice person I was able to talk to at the Court who
made my day.
Since we won’t be around for any June activities, be
sure to enjoy as many as you can, and I’m sure there will
be some articles out there somewhere.
Don’t forget the Chapter Website, Newsletter, and
Email are all tools that are available for you to use to make
some memories.
Ride Safe and have a great month
Alert—Alert-Alert
Hi! Everyone
Can you believe that 1/2 the year is almost here?.
Hopefully you participated in the May events and kept
warm or dry. This holiday weekend has been beautiful,
and from what I hear from the Memorial Weekend adventurers they are having a great time. Hopefully we
will get some articles on this trip when everyone returns.
June is here and our calendar is filling up for the
summer months. Pick and choose what you would enjoy doing, and have lots of fun no matter what you
choose.
You know who and I will be in his Truck on our way
to follow Route 66 as much as we can from beginning
(Chicago) to end (Santa Monica), of course stopping at
Quilt Shops on the way plus other interesting sites. We
are planning to take the whole month of June to do this.
I know pretty scary thinking of us being in the same vehicle and together 24-7 for a month doesn’t it? Well I
thought we weren’t going to be able to do this, as

warm fuzzies, and feel goods”, and who couldn’t use
some of these in our every day life!
Please send Mary Dodge any Thank You notes you
would like the sendee to have and she will put them in
