Hey Irish, Welcome aboard the great USS COG! Mark Hartman your ever grateful SW Area Director (yes I know I need a new tag line but I'm tapped out at the moment. Open to suggestions). Keith has got a great handle on the Cent and Nor Cal area, some of the heartland of COG history. There are folks here that know the C10 front to back and side to side. A great wealth of knowledge. I see that your membership is pending and as soon as the Membership Director get's off the road it will be processed and you will have access to Connie notes (Chalkdust) going back 2 decades. Packed full of info. If you have any questions, suggestions, problems or issues please do not hesitate to let us know. I would encourage you to join into some of the events Keith has planned if possible. You will meet some of the nicest folks in motorcycling you will ever see. Take advantage of the Membership! Welcome again and thank you for your membership support. It really does mean a lot!
