Big Sioux Riders Jones'n Party  - Feb 23rd
Steve Martin started the Jones'n Party Tradition years ago, even before the BSR was formed.  This year Tom and Maria Fountoulakis will be hosting the party at their home on the evening of Friday, February 23rd.  Its a party where everyone brings a dish and then we sit around and passionately discuss motorcycles and motorcycling while watching motorcycle videos and old motorcycle movies.  I'll get the party details out later, but keep that night open.  

Crittenden Center Pizza for Kids 
Saturday, April 29th at 12:30 PM if we can get the details worked out.  This is where we take a bunch of pizza in to share with kids a shelter and let them look at our motorcycles.

Mother's Day Spring Campout at the Dam 
It has been suggested that we consider having the Mother's Day Spring Campout at the Dam a week earlier on May 4-6 this year.  Send me an email weighing in on your preference. Originally that weekend conflicted with the Polk City Ride-In, but we are not sure they are running that event anymore.  You can email me your preferences at  

The Branson Blitz
The 2018 Blitz is scheduled for April 20-22, 2018. My assumption is that it will be at the same hotel as in the past few years.  You can read more about it here:

So here's the scoop on experienced rider training that is available. Sarpy County (Papillion) has two dates for the BRC2 training. April 21st and May 12th. Again these are full day training classes which start at 7:30 a.m. and run till 6 p.m. You would do this training on your own motorcycle. Final cost is still up in the air but if you want to go do not worry about the cost since there are some scholarships available and ways for us to reduce whatever the cost would be. If you are interested in either one of these training dates let me know by Saturday Feb 17th, there are only 6 slots available on either date.
