November-December 2006 Newsletter
by , OKHT Director
What a year! Thatís right, my rookie year is over! I made mistakes;
I forgot a couple of things, but overall ... It was great!
We had a wonderful OKHT this year. There were over 1200 riders in
attendance, which makes this yearís OKHT number 2 in attendance.
Thanks to everyone who helped make this possible.
I know that I am blessed. The OKHT Team was the best; there was
not one question or request that I made that they didnít answer. Our
volunteers, as usual, stepped up and did their jobs, and some of
them even got to ride. Our sponsors! Without them, not only would
this ride cost more, but there would be fewer things to do in
Bardstown. You can never tell them thank you enough.
One of the things I found out this year: I am nothing more than
the hub of the wheel, and the spokes do all the work that holds me
together. I know, it sounds corny, but join the Team and find out
that it is true.
Yes, join the Team. I have spaces available for Team members for
the 30th annual OKHT ride. I need detail-oriented people to help out
for next yearís ride. I have an opening for the Bardstown coordinator
job, and at least one more position. The Bardstown job can be handled
by a team of two people, so if you and a friend are interested, let
me know. With the Bardtown position, you can ride on Sunday. You get
the best of both worlds. Want to be a member of the Team, and donít
want to do Bardstown? This is not a problem either. Contact me; I
have places for you.
The Team is ready for next year. We are getting ready to start
planning the fun. We have high hopes for our 30th annual ride. Some
of the thoughts for next year are to have more entertainment and an
overall theme Ė not only for the ride, but also for the sags. We are
hoping to have a jersey contest and a contest for the sags too. Watch
this newsletter and the OKHT Web site. I will be doing my best to
keep you updated at both places.
Your suggestions are appreciated, but a better way to get your
suggestions implemented would be to volunteer. Join us and see just
what it takes to get your ride off the ground. Donít be shy, if you
never volunteered before ... Do it! If you have volunteered in the
past, try a more challenging volunteer job. If you donít ride, but
know someone who does, volunteer at a sag where you get to see your
friend and meet some of theirs. Donít forget, just because you
volunteer doesnít mean you miss out on the ride.
If you are not volunteering, you are letting other people make
the decisions for your ride. Join us, we have fun, and we make new
friends. We make the decisions.
