Lewis County ABATE

Coordinator's Report   

Hello ALL!


March has come and gone and we have started seeing more and more two-wheelers on the road.  Make sure that you stay safe and ride like you're invisible.  


We are hosting the State BOD meeting on April 17th.  We will be providing lunch for all the state staff and members.  It will be held at the Oakview Grange, the same as our regular meetings.  If you're interested in seeing what goes on at these meetings feel free to come down.  


We also have a Poker Run scheduled on May 1st.  Details are listed on the Facebook page and the newsletter.  Proceeds will benefit our Scholarship program.


Finally, WE'RE BACK!  Kickback 2021 is officially in the making and will be held on August 20th-22nd.  If you have never been, don't miss your chance this year.   It will be a fun, full, and relaxing weekend!!  You will be able to pre-order your tickets online or at the gate.  


Keep your eyes open, rubber side down, and stay safe and healthy!

Scholarship Fundraisers

   We were unable to hold any fundraisers this past year due to the pandemic. We need to raise money for our Scholarship Fund. We provide Scholarships for eight of the High Schools in Lewis County. Elk Country Chapter takes care of the three in the east end. 

   We are having a Poker Run on May 1st. It will start at Bub's Pub in Centralia. It will end at Iron Horse Apparel, 18419 Bucoda Hwy SE, Tenino, WA. Registration starts at 9AM. Kickstands up at 11AM. There will be games and prizes! Cash prize for the best hand. Hope to see you all there. 

   We were unable to have our Kickback Campout last year. Looking forward to it this year.  It is dry camping. You are welcome to bring your RV or put up a tent. There will be porta-pottys on site. Food vendors and product vendors will be there. Live music on Friday and Saturday. This is a 21 and over event. Dogs are welcome. They need to be on a leash. This is always a laid-back good time. So if you are looking to hang out with your friends and make some new friends. Join us from August 20th to the 22nd. You can use this link to purchase tickets ahead of time. $45 for ABATE members and $50 for non-members. 



Share the Road

   We put three more of these signs up. One along Jackson Hwy by the Forest-Napavine Rd. Another along Hwy 12 by Ethel, and one in Onalaska along Hwy 508. Thank you Teitzel Family Farm, Ken Olsen, and  Onalaska Tire for letting us put our signs up on your properties.  It is that time of year when more motorcycles will be out and about. Please be aware and look out for us.
