Freedom Run
Freedom Run 2016 was a lot of fun even if some of us got a little wet.  The ride started from Lawrence's Motorcycles in Coeur d'Alene, ID then went to Country Lane Resort in Kingston, ID, from there to the 1313 Club in Wallace, ID then on to Shoshone Honda Yamaha Polaris in Pinehurst, ID.  The final stop was at The Crossroads in Post Falls, ID for a BBQ and drawings.  The Kootenai Chapter had committed to providing 1/2 the funds needed to purchase Birthday Presents for foster kids at Superstar Kids Camp, put on by Lake City Community Church.  Even with the rain Kootenai Chapter met that goal.  Everyone had a great time ... the "Caged Bikers" showed up in goofy hats and at several of the stops we had a great time interacting with other patrons.
