As you know Dave and Laurie Crogan went to the International Convention in Austria this past month. Dave had his older Gold Wing shipped overseas and he had intended on selling the Wing at the Convention to off set the cost of the trip. The first day of the Convention they were waiting to go on a ride when they were notified that Wulf Bruelheide a member of Germany X who was supposed to lead the ride had a heart attack and subsequently passed away. Needless to say the ride was cancelled and there was a somber feeling for most of the Convention.
As a true Blue Knight Dave approached our International President, DJ Alvarez, and offered to raffle off his Wing and that the proceeds should go to Marion, the widow of Wulf. I am happy to say that they raised over $5,000.00 to give to her.
This is just another story of what our organization is all about. Dave showed how the members of the Blue Knights especially RI 1 care for one another. I want to thank Dave and Laurie for representing our Chapter in such an honorable way that the whole International Community saw what RI 1 has always done. Thank you Dave and Laurie.
