  Hello everyone this is Dragoni
The Abate of Washington State Ambassador at large for 6 yrs.
I am also the founder of the (BFB) network.

 I have been reading all good comments and post
 from members about the upcoming election.
I think it’s great to see all the discussion and people
 showing so much interest the future State Ambassador at large.

 As for the (BFB) network we will always remain neutral in an election
 of an ABATE of Washington State officer.

 I have personally invited both candidates to travel with me to many events
 and meetings as I do my job as the State Ambassador at large during this election process.
 I will support and help mentor the new elected Ambassador at large
 when he is elected by you, the members of ABATE of Washington.

 I think that both candidates are very well qualified to do a real good job
 as the State Ambassador at large. There are always pros and cons in an election.

 Ron Scott has been in ABATE for 6 years.
He is the Star Lake Chapter Master Sgt at Arms and also our current State Sgt. at Arms.
I personally worked with Ron Scott and wife Kate in starting the Star Lake Chapter.
Ron attends all State BOD meetings and State events.

 Dave Lewis is a real good public speaker!
 I am not sure has to when he joined ABATE of Washington.
 I do personally know Dave has been involved with a few different Motorcycle groups
 in his time with the Spanaway Chapter. To my knowledge Dave Lewis has never been
 a chapter or state officer in ABATE of Washington.

 I look forward to seeing you all at what could be my last Spring Opener

Hi everyone;

Spring Opener is just a little over a month away and things are coming together fairly well but our sales of raffle tickets is falling behind.

 

It is very important that we do everything possible to sell as many raffle tickets as we can. The money made from this goes to help with our legislative endeavors and to improve the Spring Opener.

 

So, I am asking everyone to do whatever you can to help us sell as many raffle tickets as possible, whether it is you selling or you buying both are good.

Spring Opener 2011

Thursday, June 16, 2011 to Sunday, June 19, 2011

ABATE of Washington

BTW Patch By: Robin Cole

  The Patch say’s it all, ABATE of Washington Spring Opener 2011 went Back to the woods!

It was the First Spring Opener at the Sliver Ridge Ranch in EASTON, WA.
This was a pleasant change from the flat dry open fields of Toppenish & Goldendale, WA.

  Virginia & I arrived on Thursday June 16th. At around 4pm, we could not believe the size and
 beauty of our campsite. Level ground almost no rocks, trees for shade and our own campfire!
We even had our own picnic table next to the campfire! As we looked straight out of our tent we
 could see the Band Stage for the entertainment in the huge valley in front of us.

  This was the first Spring Opener in many years that I was not working at the Event as a State
 Officer of ABATE of Washington; It was now my time to party! As we walked around the Silver
 ridge Ranch we could see all the Tents and RV’s setting up camp in the wooded areas. I thought I
 was in a State Park everything looked great. You could drive your tent stakes with your hand.

 They had one Central Bathhouse close to the main entrance both the ladies and the Guy’s
 bathrooms had showers. The cold water was free, but you had to pay 25 cents for some hot water
 if you wanted it for your shower. The Vendors were back to our right about 200 yards, and yes
 they were in the woods to.  ABATE did a real good job on the setups for locating all the Vendors
 down Vendor Row. They had vendors for Food, Tattoos, Leather, Tee Shirts, Patches, Jewelry,
 and a lot more. I found a nice Leather Halter Top for my lady & New Chain Wallet for me and Our
 Back to the Woods Patch. We had a few burgers & Fries and enjoyed all the Vendors.

  Friday the Rock Band “Moose Knuckle” was rocking the Ranch with High Energy Rock N Rock!
Everyone we talked with said they loved the new location for Spring Opener and they were having
 a great time this year. Virginia & I rocked the Night away with a Bottle of Fireball in my Vest!

  Saturday morning it was time for the Bike Games, The weather was beautiful about 72 or 75 just
 perfect not hot and not cold.  This year I decided to try my New Harley with my New Lady in a few
 Bike games. This was Virginia’s first Spring Opener! We tried the Clothes Line Race & the Weenie
 Bite Contest. No we did not win anything but it was a lot of fun!

 Then after time bike Games we decided to ride in to Cle Elum & Roslyn to see the sites.

 Saturday Night the well know Classic Rock Band “CYLAS” keep everybody dancing!
The dance area was packed with people enjoying the entertainment.

  About 11:30pm the Band took a break, for the Spring Opener wet Tee Shirt Contest!
The Girls all lined up to get watered down as the crowd grew with anticipation.
They let each Girl do a little dance on stage as the crowd voted on the winners.

Spring Opener 2009

 Update:02/07/09

   Commissioners give green light to ABATE motorcycle festival

 By Rachel Cavanaugh
 Editor, The Sentinel

     Klickitat County commissioners have decided to allow a motorcycle festival,
     which had drawn debate in recent weeks, to take
     place this spring at the Klickitat County fairgrounds.
     At their regular meeting last Tuesday, commissioners discussed the
     ABATE Spring Opener with local law enforcement including Police Chief
     Rick Johnson and County Sheriff Rick McComas.
     Although Commissioner David Sauter said McComas would have rather
     postponed the event to next year, he deferred it to the commissioners.
     "His preference was still to wait another year," said Sauter. "But he was okay
     with it happening in '2009 if that was our choice."
     Sauter said festival organizers agreed to hire a third party security firm and will
     name the county in a $2 million liability insurance policy,
     set to cover costs in the case of an incident.
     Furthermore, Sauter said, they used "clear, strong language"
     in the contract to about who would be responsible.
     "We want this to work and they want this to work," said Sauter.
     "We're all kind of going out on a limb here and we're going to see how it goes."
     The ABATE group will hold a fundraiser at the event
      to go to a local cause, Sauter added.
