Valerie suggested a summer trip to New River Gorge with a possible boat ride.
Bill and Rose mentioned going to the Pittsburgh Strip for a day of shopping and eating! This would be a short ride.

Bill and Tracy are interested in the Triple Nickle ride, which will probably be an overnight event.
The 2023 State Rally will be June 8-11th. The location will most likely be Fairmont, WV. I’ll post more details as we get them.
Getting rides on the calendar and the Rally was the main focus of our meeting.
