Greetings RFTW Family!
I hope this newsletter finds you all safe and well. “High Maintenance” and I, along with several of our RFTW Louisiana friends, will be leaving Thursday morning for Memphis, TN. We are looking forward to seeing all of you going to the reunion. It will be nice to be with our RFTW family again!
We have selected 6 families of service-related disabled veterans to help with our tornado relief fund. 5 of the 6 families are scheduled to have dinner with us in Cookeville! If you have spare money burning a whole in your pocket, please bring it with you. We will have a few items to auction off and will be doing what we can to increase our donations to this fundraiser. One of the items will be the beautiful RFTW Midway Route 2020 stained glass piece made for us by “Captain” RGC from Southern route. I want to express my appreciation to all of you who have donated to help these families recover from the loss of their homes, cars, and personal belongings due to the tornado. They have lost everything! July 4th, Cookeville will have the second largest firework show in Tennessee! It is suggested that you strap a folding chair on your bike, It will come in handy for the firework show as well as our meetings/ gatherings that we will have outdoors. Due to the covid-19 restrictions we will not be able to gather in a room at the hotels. We will have to do our “social distancing ” gatherings outdoors.
Our Cookeville stop and dinner are good to go! We will have two scheduled fuel stops. They will be handled by a fuel team like on the Run. Please make sure you have your $10, $5 & $1 bills for your fuel. Price will be rounded up to the next dollar and NO CHANGE WILL BE GIVEN. If you are not registered for the reunion and your plans have made you available, I invite you to join us. Registration will be open through the event. Hotel rooms are available and our rates have been held for us. If you would like to join us, please email Ron “Sky” King at Ron.King@RFTW.US and let him know when you will be joining us. You will be able to pay for your events when you arrive at registration. Ron needs to know who will be going to the different events for the reservations. You may also call or text him. His contact number is on the rftw.us website midway hub under midway contacts.
Safe riding everyone and can’t wait to see all of you again.
Have I told you lately?………………………………………..I love my RFTW family!
