Hello to all and Happy December! Our great fall riding has continued and

we’ve had some great rides. Congratulations to all, we made it through Hurricane

Season! We continue to enjoy our reunions with our seasonal Members and

welcome you back to Florida and our Rockstar Chapter family!

November was an exciting month, starting with our first annual “Party

Like a Rockstar” at the Holiday Inn, Fort Myers Airport and Town Center on

November 2nd. It was a great party and a lot of fun. In our Rockstar Look a Like

Contest, John Benson as Willie Nelson won first place, Jeff Kerr as Alice Cooper

won second place, and Pattie McMenamin as Stevie Nix won third place.

Congratulations to you all! We also had a number of great costumes that added

to the excitement of the evening. We were honored and pleased to have Dave

and Carlyn Veracka, owners of TMC, Geno DeMauro, General Manager of Rockstar

Harley-Davidson and his wife Shannon, and Kaley Tyree our Chapter Manager/

Liason as our guests. Congratulations to Kevin Johnson for leading the Party

Committee and Committee Members, Pattie McMenamin, Ruth Busman, Carrie

Stevens, Kaley Tyree, Gloria Hotovy and Fred Lamphear for the great job creating

this great party for us.

The first Fort Myers Bike Night at Rockstar Harley-Davidson was a fun

night and a great event! There were several accessory and food vendors,

entertainers and great music, followed by a spectacular fireworks display over

Top Rocker Field. Your H.O.G. Chapter had a tent display and took new

Membership Applications. Congratulations to Rockstar Harley-Davidson for

continuing to support this event. Thank you to everyone who volunteered at our

display and thank you to everyone who came to support Rockstar Harley-

Davidson, our sponsor.

We received two responses to our request for Members interested in

being our Chapter Director for next year, Susan McDonald and Fred Lamphear,

both very good candidates. Their responses have been given to Geno DeMauro,

Rockstar Harley-Davidson General Manager for his review and interviews. Geno

clearly wanted to fill the Director position with an election by our Members and

as there were only two responses, he is discussing how Susan and Fred can work

together and not have an election. We will announce our

Chapter Director for 2020 at our next Chapter Meeting.

Our November Chapter Meeting was fun as it ended

with a Chili Cook-Off. All entries were very good. The winners

were Arlene DiPietro – First Place, Barbara Johnson – Second

Place, and Gloria Hotovy – Third Place. Carrie Stevens brought

chili, rice and corn bread. The chili entries were accompanied

with hot dogs, grilled by Steve DiPietro and Nick Caizzo,

potato salad provided by Tom Brunetto, pasta salad

provided by Arlene DePietro and rolls provided by Fred

Lamphear. There was no ride after our Meeting but we ate

well. This is an event well worth doing again in the future.

 

Congratulations to Rockstar Harley-Davidson for achieving the third highest sales volume in the world in

October. They were also number 6 in the nation year to date. Congratulations also to the TMC Group on their

purchase of Alligator Alley Harley-Davidson in Sunrise, Florida. We are fortunate to be a part of a successful and

growing organization.

Thank you to all of our Volunteers who have helped with our Chapter Activities. Thank you also to all of our

Road Captains planning and leading us on Great rides.

This is my last article as your Chapter Director as my term is over at the end of the year. Thank you all for your

support, friendship and the opportunity to be your Chapter Director! As I have been your Director for four years, this

last year has the absolute best. It is very rewarding to supported by my great wife, Gloria, a great Board of Directors,

great Road Captains, and a great Dealership. I have truly enjoyed riding, working and spending good times with you.

Thank you all!

I sincerely wish our new Director, Chapter Officers and our Dealership the very best and will continue to help

in any way they see fit.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Ride with a smile!
