Spring officially arrived today, which means time for the Annual MAD Fun Run.
This year’s theme is Favorite Dining Establishments. Each chapter has submitted two of their favorite restaurants, cafes, inns, or just good home cooking places for a total of 48. What better opportunity is there to ride as a chapter, travel our great state of Illinois, and spend time with our neighboring Goldwing friends? Many sites are Chapter Sponsors where chapters hold their monthly socials so what better way to plan a visit to their event.
The rules are simple. The ride begins with the publication of this notice and will end on October 31, 2015. As you visit the restaurants, you need to take a picture of you at the site (your bike does not have to be in the picture) and check the site off on the list. For every five (5) restaurants you visit, you are eligible to draw a hand of five cards. Each hand will cost just $5.00. These hands will be drawn at your monthly Chapter Social in November 2015.
By December 15th, 2015, send us: your pictures, copy of your checked list, paperwork for drawn cards and $5.00 per hand. Payment needs to be from a chapter checking account with the check made payable to Illinois District Riders Ed. NO CASH or personal checks accepted. Multiple pictures can be printed on one sheet.
NOTE: Restaurant Checklists and Paperwork for Drawn Hands are located on the website.
After all information is received by the December 15th cutoff, each card in the deck will be given a number value drawn at random. The total of these points will be given to the hand and the three (3) highest totals will be declared winners. There is also an award presented to the Chapter that visits the most Restaurants. Pictures are required to be eligible for the awards. The winners will be announced at the 2016 Winter Warm-up.
So let’s get riding and have some fun!
