ABATE LOCAL 6 REPORT FOR OCTOBER
It was another great day for a meeting overlooking beautiful Mission Bay in San Diego. There was a good turnout, including a bunch of riders from American Legion Riders Post 460. One of the members with them had just returned from Afghanistan this week. Welcome Home !
Travis Barrick who is the Lawyer/Rider handling the "Repeal it or Feel it" lawsuit in Nevada gave us an update. This lawsuit will affect our California laws if they win it. We passed the hat and collected `$150. as a Local 6 contribution for the legal fund.
John gave a Judicial and Legislative report including AB 695, our helmet modification bill, and passed out Support forms so that each member can get a bunch of signatures on them. Our PAC Rep Douglas Findlay (The Repeal Machine.com) discussed the elections coming up in the Bay Area, and in San Diego. and spoke of the need for campaign volunteers (Have you seen the video ? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTQBBEDgURk ). In the Local 6 "Vote with your Feet" project, Keith and Fran and other members have been putting in time helping our local candidates. Long-time friend Congressman Bob Filner who is running for Mayor of San Diego will be attending our meeting in the near future. Denise Ducheny, a Local 6 Member is running for Congress, and I am sure she will be stopping by.
On Sunday November 6 there will be a memorial ride for Barry & Carol Sandberg, Local 6 members who were taken from us two years ago. The ride starts at 1PM at Mount Soledad, and ends at American Legion Post 460 where a lunch will be prepared for the first 100 people to attend. The lunch has been paid for by friends of Barry & Carol. Local 6 Riders will be meeting the run at Mount Soledad immediately following the Local 6 monthly meeting.
Patty Wilber covered upcoming events, Doc Robinson discussed current membership and renewed three members, Steven R. Anderson has been busy distributing flyers all over the County, John did his safety report, Our Sign Language Interpreters Fran and Amy had flying fingers and busy hands and Michael Decker gave his Treasurer's report (We have a new bank account).
Snowman's Annual Ride to visit the Vets in the VA Hospital is coming up soon, and Jim Brown made a FAT monetary contribution in the name of Local 6, to buy presents for the Vets.
So, Hey ! Check out Joe Tatro's Great Local 6 Website at http://abatelocal6.org/ , and stop by for a visit on the first Sunday of each month at Noon, at Kate Session's Park in Pacific Beach here in Sunny San Diego ! C'mon Down !
