The Rotary Motorcycle Fellowship Group scheduled a ride on Sunday, July 22 to Lake Geneva for lunch, a cruise on Lake Geneva Bay and a swing through the Kettle Morraine on the way home. Unfortunately, as the departure time approached, so too did a line of thunderstorms, followed by several more lines behind it. The rain was moving northwest to southeast. Since our Lake Geneva destination was southeast from us, we thought it best not to head in the same direction as the storms.
The motorcycle gang wisely made the decision to delay our departure and change our destination to Spring Green (north and west of us) in hopes that the line of rain storms would pass us by. And they did . . . mostly.
We had a lovely ride out to Mt. Horeb, through Stewart Park and near Little Norway, around Barnaveld, north through the farm country of Iowa County to Taliesan, and across the Wisconsin River to Spring Green. We had lunch there at the Country General Store and headed back north of the River to Sauk City, returning to Madison via back roads.
Rotary riders included Peggy Lescrenier, Rick Kiley, Steve Holzhauer, Jeff and Angie Bartell, along with assorted partners, spouses and friends.
Our message to our Rotary brethren: “Vrrrroooom!”

On July 23rd, 14 Rotarians and guests from our Club’s Golf Fellowship Group braved the 100+ degree temperatures to play 18 holes of golf at The Legend at Bergamont golf course near Oregon.
While scores were not officially reported, there were reports of on course gambling and perennial favorite to win such events.
