The DOGS gathered at the home of Harriet and Robert Voysey for the annual winter solstice party and ride. The ride on a raw late-Fall day drew a nice crowd.
After the ride, everyone retreated indoors and, joined by more DOGS who had not ridden, dug into the usual fabulous assortment of foods. As satiety set in, George handed out the annual awards to DOGS who hosted rides or parties during the year. Mike Bianco announced that he and other fellow DOGS are organizing the 2013 Eastern Tandem Rally, which will be based at the Somerset Hills Hotel in Warren in August. After that, in what has become another tradition, Barb Cate handed out trinkets to all the women present.
