This is such a bummer! I spoke with Howard last night and the way it sounds Curt is lucky to still be with us. Damn!!!
I met and road with Howard and Curt back in the late 80’s in Columbus! Curt is one of those guys who would do anything for his friends. Great sense of humor.

Curt I’m sending my best! ❤️ Love Ya Brother!

I don't know Curt, but I am praying for a good recovery.  There just seems to be way too many people that do not look for cycles, or as in my case several years ago, think the road is for cars, not motorcycles.  I was lucky it happened near an intersection as we both were slowing for the stop light and he side swiped me.  Then he told the Police he was in the Right, and the road is for cars not cycles.

Eventually his arguing got this 80+ year old hauled in for DWI, when they were about to send him on his way, if he had not argued so much.  $5,000.00+ damage to cycle, no injuries to me.  Helmet had scratches and got replaced.   I was fortunate, as he was about to run over me, because I was in his way.

Now I watch very good when I see someone that may not like cycles.

For you guys thst don’t know him, Curt is one really good dude.  Great sense of dry humor and always upbeat.  Lots of fun to have around.

Long time Ohio MSTA member Curt Chevlen has had a crash and is severely injured. 

From Howard Baumwell:
    "Saturday afternoon a little after 4:00 p.m. Curt was on his scooter about a mile or two from his home when he was t-boned by someone coming out of side street. He was conscious at the scene and was rushed to Grant Medical Center where he is currently in ICU.
      He can move his extremities and has no internal injuries, but suffered other significant injuries.  He had a C2 burst which is the priority injury and he is supposed to have surgery today or tomorrow. Curt also has an orbital fracture, clavicle fracture, a number of rib fractures, and multiple thoracic fractures.
      I will let you know more as I get more information."

Most worrying, of course, are the neck and back injuries.  I will pass on any info as soon as I can.

Yep the guys are correct. We are on the road post STAR and plan on getting home mid to late July. I then jump onto the photo editing, then burn CD’s and print the group photos for those that ordered them and get those mailed out as my top priority. After that’s complete I start my uploads to our photo site for all to see!
The group photo in particular takes some post processing as I add the event logo, text and edit to make everyone look good! ;)
Be patient it will be coming in the weeks to come.
Also watch for Nicky’s October STAReview which usually features STAR with lots of articles and pics! -JEP-

Great! long as you are on the road having a good time, I can wait!  :D
(especially since I'm not in it.  :( )

Marty, curious about the COG National. Lots of good reviews on the COG forum but was wondering what the attendance was.
I attended the HSTA STAR in June 1990. It was fun but many of us spent a whole lot of time in the pool or the Rio Frio!

I like to say "They stayed away in droves.", I'm not happy about it but that's what I like to say. The heat scared most off I suspect. However, I think it might have been cooler in Kerrville than it was last year in Missouri.  I believe we had under 150, I think 137 were preregistered and we had more walk-ins than usual but I don't think we went over 150. Next year in Pennsylvania I wouldn't be surprised if they break 400 maybe even approach 500 like we had in 2014. At least next year COG has a chance of getting MSTA's tire folks (Mr. NoMar & Sue) and some double attendees since for the fist time since 2015(I forgot about the date change) 2016 the respective Nationals aren't being held on the same week. In 2019 even the MOA is cooperating by moving to early June.  I guess there isn't much chance of the MSTA and COG ever merging except as a last ditch effort to stay alive some time in the distant future, but if only they would coordinate the Nationals so they were one or two weeks apart, it sure would be nicer for us dual members. (What?..all 4-5 of us?  ;D  Probably an optimistic figure. )
