RALLYrecap First Aid helps members in need By Hank Pfister #85148


OUR RALLY FIRST AID TEAM CON- sisted of highly experienced volun- teers, including doctors, nurse practitioners, paramedics, nurses, EMTs, and Advanced First Aid pro- viders, and during the rally we served just over 100 rally-goers. Fortunately, most of our encoun- ters were minor problems including


blisters, cuts, minor burns and insect bites. We also treated for a few heat-related issues, re-wrapped bandages,


treated several


sprained ankles and performed an “opera- tion” to remove parts of a hearing aid that came apart in a rider’s ear. As with all of our rally committees, it is the hard work of the volunteers that makes


our rally a success. The folks that volun- teered in First Aid were all a tremendous asset, and I want to thank them all again for taking time away from their rally experi- ence to help others in need. I hope to see you all next year in Des


Moines. Receiving the usual and some unusual


By Steve Reynen #38356 and RuthAnn Reynen #48142 RECEIVING


DOES EXACTLY


that—we receive packages and other items sent via UPS, Fed Ex and USPS to the rally site for the attendees and vendors. We then log in the received items and hold them until the addressees come to pick them up. As the week progresses we also deliver many packages to the vendors. This year, as in years past, we are


witness to some interesting and sur- prising stories from the people look- ing for their “stuff.” One rider was anxiously awaiting


a package from his wife holding a key for his bike who broke off the tip


of the key opening a bottle of beer! Another rally-goer was giddy with joy as he quickly opened a small box containing his cell phone which he had left behind at a stop on his ride to Salt Lake City. Another rider, frustrated but keeping his sense of humor, visited us several times looking for the new cooler he had shipped to the rally. It arrived Saturday morning! The most bizarre situation this year


regarded a lost cell phone. We had received two small packages addressed to the same person, but no one came to claim them. After checking with registration to verify the person was indeed at the rally, we called the telephone number on the address


label and a man answered. No, he was not the owner of the phone, but he had found it on a dirt trail in Colorado and took it home with him; the addressee on the package had obviously not attempted to call his own cell phone to try to locate it, and a bit of sleuthing on Facebook found a GS rider with the same name as the package addressee; a message was sent, and we received a simple “thank you,” but no explanation! A big thank you to our dedicated volun-


teers, including Jerry, Turk, Jack, and Larry. We appreciate the long hours you offer to help us do our small part to make the rally a success.


Black Ops keeps rally-goers cool THE BLACK OPS TEAM ORGA-


nized a successful pilot training exer- cise in Salt Lake City during July of this year, and the thermoregulatory safety of the local population was sig- nificantly improved as our patrols successfully identified individuals in need of a wetting down. Additionally, funds were secured for a Motorcycle Relief Project, thanks to our Special Black Ops Dunk Tank Team.


94 BMW OWNERS NEWS October 2017 Plans are underway for next year’s


deployment, including a three-pronged focus on strategies, equipment require- ments and personnel needs. These plans are currently classified and additional recruit- ment efforts will be undertaken in order to expand the effectiveness of next year’s operation. Please consider enlisting with the Black


Ops Team voluntarily, although we con- sider implementation of the draft and/or


the use of mercenaries to be valid options. As always, our Mission is to keep rally attendees cool and smiling! I personally want to thank Don Morell


and Bruce Davidson, our faithful team members and the good cheer of persons from the transient population who were temporarily housed within the Utah State Fairpark. I hope that you have all been resettled safely into secure and stable home environments.
