    Hodaka Days in Athena, OR will be held from June 23-25 next year. In the HD planning meeting held recently in Milton Freewater, OR the Club decided that the most popular events will be continued in 2017:

    • Hodaka Parade through downtown Athena
    • Vintage Poker Run Road ride
    • Badrock Trail Ride in Weston, OR
    • Hodaka Observed Trials Event
    • Swap Meet/Vendor Booths
    • Hodaka Bike Show
    • Barbeque, Live Auction, Silent Auction
    With regard to the Sunday Scrambles event, the Club officers decided that to attract more participants on Sunday, and because of the very high cost of event insurance, the Scrambles will become a "MX Playday" on the Diamond Eye vintage track allowing more Hodaka folks and their entire families to ride on Sunday.

    Two long time Club members were recently elected to the Hodaka Club Board of Directors. New members on the board include Erv Robison of Spokane, Washington and Ed Chesnut of Milton Freewater, Oregon.

    Shortly after the election, Paul Stannard submitted his resignation as Club president. As Paul wrote in his recent Hodaka Resonator article, he had some tough choices to make and wanted to find some balance in his life.

    Paul will be carrying on promoting the "Preston Petty Products" line on behalf of Preston and overseeing his Strictly Hodaka online parts business. We all wish him well and thank him for a long and successful tenure as our President.

    The board wasted little time in selecting Ed Chesnut as the new Hodaka Club president. We are are all excited to have “The Captain” at the helm and we would surmise that Ed will share his thoughts as President in one of his Resonator columns soon.

    Last month the Club met in Athena, OR some braving the inclement weather and seriously cold temperatures on the mountain pass to begin planning for the 2016 Hodaka Days! Good Hodaka folks with lots of "Hodakability", positive energy and ideas.

    This years event will be June 23-26, 2016. If you plan on attending and camping, plan on getting there on Wednesday the 22nd or even earlier. The Swap Meet starts on Friday as usual (Bring your Hodaka rollers and parts!!) and there'll be tent camping in Athena City Park with an all-night security patrol again.

    There will be the usual Umatilla TT road ride on Thursday which any vintage bike, 250cc and under, street legal can participate in. There may be a longer route planned this year. Another Badrock Ride is definitely planned for Friday, so keep coming back here to find out when sign-ups for this year's event open up.

    Finally, there was a decision made about having the Observed Trial earlier in the day on Saturday after the Bike Show opens to avoid the very hot afternoon weather at the grain elevator Trials layout. The Parade is always Saturday at High Noon. See ya'll there!! "Where it all began".. "Happy Hodaka Days" - (quote from the late great Jim Pomeroy)

    A big Welcome to Doug Bareither, of Kennewick, WA who helped us reach a membership milestone by becoming Member #600!

    In what appears to be a flood of popularity, the Bad Rock Trail Ride has been sold out. We expanded the available number to 125 riders, but that was booked within 3 days. We are looking into alternatives, so if you wish to be on the waiting list, please send an email to gfloren@easystreet.net and we will notify you if rider spots become available.

    The Umatilla TT is still wide open and has no rider limit. You will need a street legal bike, and there are a few other requirements, but don't miss out on another great vintage riding opportunity!
