If you have not been to this event in the past, Herb Anderson recommends that you make it a point to watch the Sidecar Races on Frida and Saturday.  One of the few places you can see this sport in our area.

Anything else you may want to schedule.


VP Corner

The July RAMS Meeting will be at Herb & Reno Andesrson's home in Puryear, TN.  Herb will likely lead a ride over to Paris Landing State Park to check out the Camping for possible future RAMS Campout destination.


Old Business.

  1. Paul has found a home for the coffee pot  with the Four Winds BMW Club in Pittsburgh, PA!  Apparently advertising something for sale in an operational condition works as a sales tool.  Who knew?  If anyone has some room and is heading for Lebanon, TN or Pittsburgh, PA and would be willing to haul it, please let Paul or any RAMS Officer know.
  2. Performance Plus does not have any information on the RAMS in their shop.  Reno Anderson has volunteered to create a flyer to place there.
  3. If anyone still does not have their picture in the online directory, please see Spencer or Rosey.
  4. If you would like a RAMS Patch (old Logo only), decal (old and new Logos) or need RAMS business cards, please see Spencer.


For the Good of the Club

  1. Check RAMS Website for other Club’s Rally Schedules. Please follow up on each event’s web site as some may be rescheduled or cancelled.
  2. 2024 Dues are $25.00 and were due on January 1, 2024.  They may be paid either by Cash or Check to the Secretary/Treasurer or via PayPal or Credit Card on the RAMS Website.
