This year's run brought back memories of the runs in 2006 &
2008, when Mother Nautre hadn't been so kind to us....BUT we
got 25 people to brave the chilly weather and to once again
head into the Poconos to our new spot in East Stroudsburg, Pa,
The place was gorgeous, and was fully prepared
for us with appetizers, drinks, and an exclusive menu for the
run participants. Followng our food, we were able to sit
by a blazing bonfire, which kept everyone warm, and for those
who chose, had a fine cigar following our meal.
Afterward, those who chose, headed back into Hoboken where we
had a small after-party at our host location Coopers Union.
This was the inaugral run for Mike Aviles, who was the
driving force behind last year's restoration run. Mike
took on the task with gusto and handled everything (I helped
just a little...lol) and despite the un-cooperative weather &
some construction oon I-80, the run went off smoothly. Mike is now the
Club's new Run Director and will be handling the runs from
this point forward. Mike's enthusiam is infectious, and
he has great plans going forward, including finally getting a
Spring Run together. I am fortunate that Mike has
stepped up to the plate & he has my full support....I hope
that all of you will support him as well. The job of
organizing, managing, and operating a run is a significant
task, of which I have been proud and honored to have done for
the club for these past many years. I have every
confidence that Mike will be a great Run Director.
again, our thanks to all of our Sponsors who appear above.
They have consistenly supported this run since its inception,
to LJ & Greg at the Motorcycle Mall in Belleville, for renting
us ALL of their bikes...again; to Liana, who was the essential
sidekick on Run Day; to my brothers and sisters from Hoboken
PD, who once again, came out in force despite the cold; to
Russell Breninger, and his wife Alice, for once again
escorting us through the cold, and; finally, to our most
important supporter...you, our participants, who make our run
every year. Without you, we don't have a run, so once
again, THANK YOU!
Look forward to seeing you in the
CLUB FOUNDER & PRESIDENT
