Help promote ABATE at Minnesota Vikings Childrens Ride

Jon Stutelberg, Metro Chapter, has promoted ABATE of Minnesota at this event for many years. Jon needs about 15 helpers at the Blue Heron Grill, Hugo, MN at the start of the run at 8:00 am on July 20th for parking lot duty and to work a membership table. At the end of the ride at Grand Casino Hinckley we also have an opportunity to offer memberships to the crowd and could use help there as well. This is easy duty and not a huge time commitment. Help will be needed on July 20th from approximately 8:00 am until 3:00 pm.

Celebrate Freedom – Go for a Ride

I wish all of ABATE of Minnesota’s freedom fighters a very happy Independence Day! As more and more Americans continue to accept a country based on government’s protection of people from themselves, I believe that bikers lead the way in understanding what true liberty is. For me and all the motorcyclists I know, to not ride is unthinkable. And to ride under oppressive “one size fits all” mandates is a life less lived.

2013 ABATE Rally Will Be Here Soon
