We have an unofficial bulk email list which allows participants to send out information which may be of interest to the rest of the group, such as impromptu rides or something for sale. It is separate from the OFFICIAL emails that Debbie sends out for Chapter A business and sending of bulk emails can only be done by people with access to the members only area of the web site. They will have a sender listed as "Black Sheep Notification List". If you are not receiving these emails but would like to, click HERE. There is an unsubscribe link in every message that goes out so you can unsubscribe at any time if you decide it's not for you.

A Motorcyclist's Prayer
O, dear Father I ask for you to watch over me as I ride from point a to b. Help all other motorists to see me clearly and help me to stay out of their way. Bring me back to my family in one-piece dear God, these things I pray. Amen
