Sweet Corn Ride

August 19, 2012

Barb and Larry Fetzer outdid themselves once again hosting the Sweet Corn Ride. The weather they ordered for the day could not have been better, cool and refreshing! The new route was so beautiful with panoramic vistas of the countryside from the top of each hill, and the corn was the best ever (but then I think that EVERY year!) Several of us took advantage of Barb’s offer of a garden walk through their wildflower prairie and Larry’s extensive vegetable garden filled with abundant produce, some of it pretty exotic stuff! Thank you so much, Barb and Larry, for providing this delightful opportunity for all of us CATS to gather together and enjoy a pleasant day of biking, eating, and fellowship in the peaceful atmosphere of your country home.

Thanks to all the participants of PSTR 2012!

August 14, 2012

Hello all. Ron and I thank all of the participants in the 2012 Prairie State Tandem Rally. All forty of us had a great time, and wonderful weather. I appreciate everyone being communicative with RSVP’ing, and keeping me apprised of plans, and changes in plans. It makes the work of planning a rally such as this much easier. A special thank you to Karen & Jim Click, who worked with us on the rally, sharing the planning and making it all happen. I’m attaching photos that I took during the course of the weekend.
