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 due to State or local Covid situations.
  2. The subject of the RAMS Club Trailer was brought up by Chip Mann, with the question being “what were the plans for it, given that we no longer do a Rally?” There was a brief discussion and it was decided to table the topic for the time being as some members felt that we may get back into the Rally Business after Covid and will need it then.  There is some repair work that needs to be done to the trailer and that will be set up and taken care of later in the year.
  3.  There is a RAMS Contingent planning to ride up to the Falling Leaf Rally, October 8-10, 2021. Rally Location is:  Bass River Resort   204 Butts Road Steelville, Mo. 65565See VP Jimmie Smith if you want to ride up with the group.
