Message From Your Chapter President

Hello Freeport ABATE!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Santa was very good to the Gerkes.

This is my first article as your Freeport President. I can't wait to get started and look forward to a big 2015. This gives us a chance to set goals for the year and one goal I would like to see is that Freeport Chapter gets back to haveing over 300 members this year. Or 400! Bring a friend to a meeting and let them see what we are all about. I bet we can get them to join if they just show up. Remember, we are the #1 chapter in the #1 region in the #1 state in the world.

With this weird wether, we could be riding any day. Bring your mileage to the next meeting and get staarted on the mileage contest. I saw bikes out on Christmas. I think they were a little nuts, but it's never too early to get started. Just be safe out there. Nobody expects us to be riding this time of year.

See you at a meeting.

Scott Gerke

Our monthly meetings are the 3rd Sunday of every month with the exception of July. During the fall through spring months, we meet at Logan's Bar & Grill in Freeport Illinois. June through September we meet at the Pecatonica Wetlands about a mile north and west of Pecatonica Illinois. Meetings start at 12:30 sharp and we try to not let them go longer than two hours. We cover a lot of information at our meetings and encourage you to join us. Families are welcome and encouraged to attend our August family picnic meeting. Children are most welcome and we have special activities to keep them occupied during the meeting. Safety, Education and Legislation are all key initiatives of ABATE. We encourage all members and non-members alike to ride safely. Please read our mission statement.
