13+ years ago: we started ("Over the Pond to ye Olde Colonies") and sent Guy Young to ride with the GCE Club in Europe..
Since then we've sent 17 (COG and GCE) Traveler's "Over the Pond" to ride with their sister clubs in another Country.
Last year we sent Al Norcross and Charlie Gary to Europe to ride with the GCE club in the Netherlands/etc.
(I think their still grinning) :great:

All of this was made possible by 2 GREAT Clubs! (COG and GCE)
BE VERY PROUD OF YOURSELVES!!!!!

This year we plan to do: "Over the Pond XIV / 2016"
We're gonna bring a GCEer (or 2) to the USA to ride with us at the COG National in Helen Georgia! :great:

Did I get your attention?

Currently; ("OtP XIV/2016") is starting to move..
Hans (OtP Boss) has said, "yes" lets try to do it again,
The "OtP" Team Members have started checking in,
Hans has send me the approx. Rules/Dates/etc for this years "OtP".
(He and I are currently reviewing and fine tuning them).
{Don't tell Hans I sed this, but he makes lots of mistakes}
SOON, I (the "OtP" {loyal} Slave Laborer) will post them.....

AFTER their posted,,, "Over the Pond XIV / 2016" will officially start, and we will begin accepting Nominations for this years "OtP" Traveler..

Until then; start thinking about who you will nominate!!

As always, "OtP" can only happen with your help...
Will you help us make it possible?

More later,
Ride safe, Ted


PS: "OtP 2016" will be centered around the National in Helen Georgia.
(I got word that the National Team is making some (err) special plans for this years "OtP" Traveler).

Nominations ended yesterday.
I think the Eu leader, (ie: Hans Ove Gortz / OtP Boss) received 4 nomination's.
He is currently contacting the nominee's to check qualifications and ask if they accept the nominatoion.

After he contacts the Nominee's he'll develop a list of Candidates.
Followed by; he'll give us that list of Candidate names.
That we can use for voting.

I will get you the names and descriptions of the Candidates soon!!!

Until then; we need to prepare to show the Traveler a good time when he arrives.

Please keep sending in Donations.
Please;;;; volunteer to help the Traveler if he comes thru your area!!

Ride safe, Ted
