Bring Your ABATE Chapter to the State Capitol Offer

Hello Freedom Fighters,

You all know by now that due to renovations at the State Capitol we will not be able to have our traditional Bikerday. So we are asking Chapters to schedule their own “mini Bikerday”.

Lake Chapter has 17 members signed up to lobby at the State Capitol on February 11th. Chapter representatives will be making appointments for the members attending and they will hand deliver ABATE of MN talking points to their elected officials. These talking points were recently sent out to this email list and Mack has printed copies.

Please send all of the responses that you receive to me so we can track them. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Thanks for supporting your motorcycling freedom at the federal level.

Celebrate Freedom – Go for a Ride

I wish all of Minnesota’s freedom fighters a very happy Independence Day! As more and more Americans continue to accept a country based on government’s protection of people from themselves, I believe that bikers lead the way in understanding what true liberty is. For me and all the motorcyclists I know, to not ride is unthinkable. And to ride under oppressive “one size fits all” mandates is a life less lived.

Help ABATE at the Minnesota HOG Rally

Going to the 2014 Minnesota HOG Rally this weekend? If so help promote ABATE of Minnesota while there!

ABATE of Minnesota will have membership tables at BIR and Viking Land H-D and could use a few more volunteers.

Easy and fun work - Just contact Smoker if you are available @ 612-703-5755 and want to help.
