Southern Arizona Road Cleanup
Southern Arizona Road Cleanup
After the meeting on October 21st, members of the Southern Arizona Chapter of ABATE traveled down to Whetstone, AZ, which is about 60 miles South East of Tucson, near the place where AZ Hwy 90 meets Hwy 82. Just to the East of the intersection of these two Highways is Buddy's bar and just East of there is a one mile stretch of highway that the Southern Arizona Chapter has been cleaning since it was known as the Tucson Chapter. We had about 10 folks take the ride down after our meeting and we made quick work of the clean-up! In the years we have been doing this it has gotten easier each time. We believe that as people see that it is clean and and no longer full of trash that they are less likely to throw garbage out of their moving vehicles. It is just none of the things ABATE members are doing to be a positive force in our communities.
Meeting of the Minds 2017
As I arrived to the hotel Doubletree in Williamsburg, VA with Jim Butsback, Mike Infanzon, and Mary K. Donnay. I was greeted by Anissa Thorpe- Huntington (Dragonfly) and Darron Lee Radar Huntington (Radar).
After checking in I headed over to the Hospitality Suite which was hosted by Virginia Bikers Association & Virginia Coalition of Motorcyclists. It was great seeing so many familiar faces from last years conference. Kind of makes you feel at peace. Shortly after arriving it was time to gather in the Auditorium for Meet the Board/Meet the States @ 7:00. After introducing the MRF Board. The States each got up and announced what they have accomplished in the last year. The Bills that had been passed and bills still waiting. They also announced their agendas. It was very informational.

East Valley Chapter Honors Jack Batty
Jack Batty... even just seeing or hearing his name brings a smile to most everyone who knows him. Jack has decided to take a break from being an officer and board representative.
Compared to many of our members I am still a wet behind the ears newbie. Being said newbie and curious I asked Jack what positions he had held so far during his ABATE adventure. At the chapter level it might be easier to just say what he hasn’t been. Here is the list he gave me: Jack has held the positions of Chapter Coordinator, Vice Coordinator, Secretary, Runs/Events Coordinator, Communications, Merchandise, Masterlink distribution, and last but not least East Valley Chapter Board of Directors representative.
