Twenty-two members of the Red Knights, Mass-2 met at the RKMC "Clubhouse" in February to look at the season's ride schedule and talk about Americade!

As you can see there is always plenty of food!

Remember, Ride to Eat!

Chapter Officers from throughout Massachusetts meet every February with State Rep Steve Mickle to discuss upcoming ride schedules and other issues important to the Red Knights.

Attending the 2002 meeting were reps from Mass Chapters 2, 4, 5, 12, and Connecticut 2.

If it's February, it must be the Winter Frolic at Ontario-7!

...and of course a stop at Carney's Pub with Stan at the Trenton Airbase.

On March 15, 2002, Bill Hollick, long time member of RK Mass Chapter-1 stepped down from his position as Director of the Massachusetts Firefighting Academy and began his retirement. Bill had been an active member of the fire service for 37 years; as a Hudson Firefighter, Officer, Chief of the Department, and a Fire Academy Instructor. For the past 16 years he was one of the administrative leaders at the Academy and for the past five years its Director. There are a number of Red Knights who serve as instructors with the Fire Academy and they and over 100 other firefigthers, MFA staff, family and friends were on hand to wish Bill well at the beginning of his new journey in life.

On our annual train ride into Boston, we walked into Charlestown. As we crossed the Charlestown Bridge we stopped for a moment at this memorial in memory of Lt. Steve Minehan. Lt. Minehan perished in a warehouse fire on that site in June 1994 as he searched for other lost firefighters.

Our 2002 Walking tour of Boston included the Charlestown Navy Yard, home of the U.S.S. Constitution, Mother Anna's in the North End for some fantastic Italian food, and Quincy Market for some ice cream and pastries.

Had a great time on Cape Cod with all our friends from around Massachusetts
and Connecticut at the RKMC Dutch Treat Weekend! Here are more pictures.

Not really Red Knights related, but UMass Police (Amherst) just took delivery of a new Harley...
I wonder if they'll get a red one for the fire and safety guys!

Three new rides showed up in Wells, Maine with our members!
It was a chore keeping the dust down at the campground though.
