Subject: (9-19-19) 186 Ride Report
Riders 186: Hello brothers & sisters.
Reports of recent ALR 186 events
1. (9-11-19) I'll repeat that we had (9) Rider members show up for the "Flags over the Bridges" Memorial event for the (9-11-2001) Radical Muslim Terrorist Attacks on the USA.
We stood with Flags on the bridge at SC Rt #31 & SC Rt & 9. (Members present were Fred, Greg, Sandy, Lee, May, Darryl, Rick, & Brent. There was one other member there, but I can't recall who it was at this time. (Sorry) I throwed away my notes of the day. (Picture Attached)
2. (9-14-19) ALRSC "Meet & Greet".
Ten members of Post 186 attended the ALRSC 2019 "Meet & Greet" at Legion Post 34 in Rock Hill, SC. on Sat. (9-14-19). We all had a good time, & got to meet many of the Legion Riders from other Chapters around the State. We also appreciated the free food, soft drinks, & hospitality given by Post 34. They did an outstanding job. (The ten 186 members present on Sat. were Fred & Cheryl - Greg & Sandy, Don & Tina, Lee & May & Bent & Anne. (Picture attached.)
3. (9-15-19) Legion Riders & Legion Breakfast.
We had our Riders breakfast this past Sunday. We didn't have as many customers show up this time as we did the last time so our financial intake wasn't as good, but it was good enough to purchase some Flag poles, & Flags for our Chapter if we want to add them to our Riders inventory. (We'll discuss that at our next ALR meeting on Oct. 12, 2019.
Most of you know that because we could not get enough Legion Riders to volunteer to work our Sunday breakfasts we had to team up with the Legion to get it done. Even so I still noticed that there are still volunteers from the Aux. & or SAL who gratefully come in to help us.
We need to thank these people often. (Our Rider volunteers there were.) Rachel, Carrie, Mike, Lee, May, & Brent. (Pic attached.) Note: If I forgot anyone who was there volunteering for the Riders I'm sorry.
We ride for God & Country

Remember: ***** (Team Work is Good!)
Lee said they decided to ride North, so they departed Post 186 & rode into North Carolina. Lee reported the ride was a good one, & went without incident.
While Lee was reporting about today’s ride we discussed the fact that very few riders are showing up for rides. We agreed that in the future we will ask riders to confirm in advance if they plan to ride on any week day or weekend rides so the ride captain &/or the ride assistants don't ride all the way to the Post for nothing. (If less than three 186 riders confirm we will cancel.)
Reminder: Our next ALR 186 meeting is on Sept. 7, 2019 at 11 AM or when the Legion meeting is adjourned. (Final details of the ALRSC "Meet & Greet" event on Sept. 14, will be discussed.) We have 10 members who are interested in attending so far.
