Many have ask…”How is Indiana doing with the Covid situation?” I just checked again today (July 3rd) and they have moved the entire state to above 4.5 stage in opening. So, though there are some restrictions in various areas, I wanted to let everyone know that, as a state, they are doing well so far.
As you will see by the following information, we have tried to fill up the week! No pressure to be early or stay late…but, for those who are coming in and do not know the region, we wanted to help make the experience as great as possible…we like to call it, “Hoosier Hospitality!”
The following will be the daily breakdown of events that you all are welcome to participate in:
Tuesday (28th) – 9am ride to scenic Madison Indiana and Clifty Falls. We will meet at the corner of hwy 135 and 40, at the Speedway Gas Station. Lunch will be at the Key West Shrimp House in Madison as close to noon as we can make it. Contact Mark Wever (812-325-8983) or Mark Hardin (618-292-7415) to let us know if you have any questions about the ride. For those coming into the area on Tuesday and coming from the south or east, if you wish to meet us for lunch, you would be able to ride back with our group as well.
Wednesday (29th) – 8:30am ASR Chaplain training will be held at the host church (Pentecostals of Nashville…address: 60 Mount Liberty Rd, Nashville IN). Then, at 11:30am short ride is planned to begin from the host church (Pentecostals of Nashville) parking lot, and time will be reserved to explore scenic Nashville Indiana. At 5:30pm, there is an outreach initiative at the church with special singing groups from the area…Potters Clay, Upper Room Experience, Sharp Family Bluegrass, and Pentecostals of Nashville Worship Team. We encourage all the ASR/ASR Friends to come to this event…you will enjoy the groups, and we want to be a witness to all that drop in to listen.
Thursday (30th) – 9am-3pm ride…Ride will begin directly across from the Seasons Lodge along Maple Leaf Blvd, bikes facing north. Please be fueled and ready to roll. Lunch (see meal plan) will be at Golden Corral in Bedford Indiana. At 5pm supper (see meal plan) will be served at the host church. Our annual missions focused service will begin at 7pm. (Don’t forget to bring your Motorcycle For Missionaries offering to this service) An “Afterburner” fellowship and snacks will follow, compliments of members from the region.
Friday (31st) – 9am-3pm ride…The ride will begin at the same location as Thursday, across from Seasons Lodge along Maple Leaf Blvd…and be fueled and ready to roll. This ride will stop off at the Harley Davidson dealership in Bloomington Indiana, then lunch will be at a pavilion in Cascades Park (see meal plan) in Bloomington Indiana. (There is a very large play area for the children across the road, if it is open at that time) At 5pm supper (see meal plan) at the host church. A revival focused service will have Pastor Shine Doughty of Apostolic Center in Mattoon IL and begins at 7pm. An “Afterburner” fellowship and snacks is planned after, compliments of members in the region.
Saturday (1st) – Held in a Banquet Room within Seasons Lodge, at 8am light breakfast, compliments of ASR, will be available. Annual Meeting begins at 9am and should wrap up around 11am. We have several very important subjects to discuss, and voting for two ASR Board Members to serve us over the next two years. Lunch following the meeting will be at Seasons Lodge. A ride is planned following the meeting/lunch to Tulip Trussell (2and longest Railroad Trussell in US) for those who are hanging around.
Sunday (2nd) – a list of churches will be provided of all the churches in the area that participated for those staying over.
For the meals (4) falling under the meal plan, please find the pre-pay forms along with the Registration online. The pre-pay will help expedite the lunch process and will also give an idea of how many to prepare the meals/seating for.
We are attempting to have a host/guide for the spouses that do not wish to ride, but, wish to go out for a while and also meet us for the lunch. Watch Facebook for updates on this initiative. At least, we will have detailed directions for how to get to the lunch locations.
If any questions, please call or text Mark Hardin (618-292-7415) and we will try to accommodate.
