With much thought and consideration, your Great Northwest HOG Board Members along with Housing Hope have decided to postpone both the Bunny Run collections this Saturday March 28th and the Bunny Run on April 4th. With the Housing Hope facilities closed to all outside guests we are not allowed to drop off our donated items. We also considered how it would look asking for donations of toilet paper, paper towels and cleaning supplies for Housing Hope at a time when most are finding it hard to acquire those items for their own households. Housing Hope is however experiencing a shortage of items, as many of their donation drives occur at this time of year. If you are able and willing, an on line monetary donation would be much appreciated. We will be dropping off the change and monetary donations that John Henry has collected and put into rolls of quarters. Not sure yet where we are dropping them off, but Nikki with Housing Hope is making the arrangements at an off-site location. We are also cancelling the general meeting on April 4th, as we should all be practicing our social distancing. As for our scheduled rides, again the responsible thing to do is postpone them until the NW region gets through this virus situation. We do encourage you to ride during this time, as there is no better way to practice social distancing then to be on your bike cruising around the beautiful Pacific Northwest. If you want to ride with a few friends, send out a message, I'm sure there are a few others that would join you. Remember to use gloves while filling your tanks as there nozzles have been identified as a possible carrier of the virus. Most gas stations now have them out for your use. Please continue to support our dealership. With all the extra time on your hands, stop in say hello, take a look at the deals they have going on. It is possible to do while maintaining your six feet of separation. It would also be a great time to get that service done. Keep checking our website, and the Blast notices for information on when the general meetings and organized HOG rides will resume.
