Honoring Phil, a WW2 Veteran

Did we get wet? Yup! Did we die? Nope!

An absolute awesome and humbling day.

A call went out and IARGMN answered!

Meet Phil, a 96 year old WWII veteran. He is from a generation of young men that answered our nations call. Phil used to ride an Indian in his younger days.

Phil had a simple request, he wanted to see and hear some Indians. We tried to help when this was originally scheduled last month but Mother Nature had other plans. Well Mother Nature tried to thwart those plans today but failed.

We rolled in and was he in heaven! Hearing these bikes today made his day! He said his Indian never sounded like these!

We presented him with an IARGMN patch and made him an honorary member! Levi Watkins presented him with an Indian guardian bell for his wheelchair!

Two other veterans came out to see the bikes as well and Levi presented another Indian guardian bell for a veteran’s walker!

Then we were all invited in to meet a couple of more veterans that were not able to come outside.

Our nation is currently losing over 400 WWII veterans a day. We owe them a debt that we will never be able to repay. Honoring them in the way we did today makes me so proud to be a member of this group.

Thank you to everyone who made the journey today and braved the elements.

Thank you to Beth Johnson for coordinating this unique and special opportunity.

And a side note. The National Anthem was played and the two young children stopped what they were doing and stood with their hands over their hearts through the entire song.

2018 Year in Review

As we close down 2018 and start to look forward to next year, we wanted to take this time to reflect on this last riding year.

donnie-smith
We started this year out with a bang! We had a booth set up at the Donnie Smith Motorcycle Show in March. It was a real fun event and meeting so many new faces was a real pleasure! With the added help of Ernie’s awesome classic bike to help draw people in, our outreach to the riding community was outstanding.

fall-flood-motorcycle-run-2017
In April, we teamed up with the Polaris Foundation to help with the running of the Spring Flood Run. Was a brisk day and turnout was a little light since we had that snowstorm about 5 days before the run, but the roads were clear and the ride went off without a hitch!

This is when we started up our riding season with organized rides each Sunday. Our rides took us all over Minnesota and Wisconsin and on routes that were both fun and beautiful. Each week was something different and our members enjoyed them!

angel-run-2018
In late June, IARGMN partnered with The Angel Foundation of Minnesota and organized the 1st Annual Angel Run. This was a ride where 100% of the proceeds went directly to The Angel Foundation of Minnesota. The ride started in St. Paul and took us up to Franconia Sculpture Park. 87 bikes took part in this inaugural ride with consistent feedback about how well it was ran and how they are looking forward to making this an annual tradition.

duluth-trip
In July the group did an overnight trip to Duluth. I heard some shenanigans were afoot and good times were had. Everyone who took part raved about how enjoyable the trip was and are looking forward to going again next year!

The Fall Flood Run was in September and once again IARGMN partnered with the Polaris Foundation to help run it. Also, IARG ran a dollar raffle with 100% of the proceeds going directly to Soldier’s-6 to help them with their mission of providing service dogs to law enforcement and veterans who are in need of that service!

All in all, it was a great year and we can not wait for 2019’s riding season to start at the Spring Flood Run.

Results from the Fall Flood Run Dollar Raffle 2018

The IARG made a donation of $1800 to Soldiers-6 with a matching donation of $1800 from The Polaris Foundation for a total of $3600 going directly to Soldiers-6!

The IARG partnered up with the Polaris Foundation to develop and run the Dollar Raffle at this fall’s Flood Run.  The membership of the IARG voted to donate the proceeds of the Dollar Raffle to Soldiers-6, a Minnesota based 501c3 charity that trains and donates service dogs to veterans and former law enforcement personal who are in need of such a service.

The Dollar Raffle sold 1,788 tickets this year.  The IARG donated 100% of all the money raised to Soldiers-6.  This was made possible because of our great sponsors:

A fantastic ride led by David Gooselaw that started in Prescott. We headed down Wisconsin side of the Mississippi and then turn off in Alma. A few back roads, a fuel stop, Alligator Slide Road, then we arrived at Larry’s Lookout for a great lunch!

After lunch, more back roads then ice cream at Nelson’s Creamery!

Thank you David for organizing and leading a fun day!
