    Great turnout today for CPL Rathke. We had 18 bikes, one first timer, and good weather.
    Thanks to Bob for wrangling the flags and bringing the water. Also to those who helped with parking and volunteering to be a pallbearer.

    The family was very appreciative of your presence as they had some members who live too far away to be able to attend.
    I am grateful to be able to ride you all.
