Viking Tour is coming on May 20th

Viking Tour is coming on May 20th
Get ready to trim your beard and shave your legs... again!
 
The Viking Tour is rolling through Poulsbo May 20th, 2018.
 
The Viking Tour is a group ride on the Kitsap Peninsula that starts and finishes in historic Poulsbo, “Little Norway” at 9 am, and is held during the iconic VikingFest carnival and festival. So if you’re an out of towner, plan on coming out Saturday and stay the night to experience Viking Hospitality!
 
The ride has three different lengths for all riding levels: the “Odin”: a ~60-mile journey featuring over 4,000ft of climbs. the “Thor”: a ~30-mile ride which still has some hills for those looking to have a bit of fun with a little less challenge and the "Freyja": a ~15-mile relaxing ride where you can enjoy yourself without breaking too much of a sweat.
 
The Viking Tour is meant to be whatever you make of it. Do it for fun, do it to challenge your personal best or do it to win! Whatever your intent, you’ll be glad you came! We encourage professionals, amateurs, recreational riders, clubs & cycling teams to participate. It’s time for all Vikings to trim your beards, shave your legs and get ready to ride.
 
All profits from the Viking Tour support ongoing efforts of the Poulsbo Rotary Club.

Polio Plus/Paul Harris

Chris Morrisey receiving Paul Harris awardPolio Plus is a special funding category at Rotary International to support Rotary's fight to end polio. Poulsbo Rotary’s commitment to end Polio in our lifetime is succeeding! We gathered more than $5500 – exceeding our pledge goal. But the fight continues, so your donations to this effort are still needed. We are SOOOOOO close that the next reported case of Polio could be the last!!!
 
Chris Morrisey was honored at this meeting as a new Paul Harris Fellow. These awards, given in the name of Rotary Founder Paul Harris, are for Rotarians who donate a total of $1000 to the Rotary Foundation, the charitable non-profit of Rotary International. Congratulations, Chris!

Identity Theft and How to Protect Yourself 

Jacob MaxwellBrenda WallDan WeedinThis extremely serious problem was presented to the club by Jacob Maxwell, Brenda Wall, and Dan Weedin. Did you know that the Equifax breach exposed over 100 million records… keep in mind that the US population is estimated to be 326 million. Cybercrimes are on the rise and your business insurance policy MIGHT NOT COVER IT! Here are a few of the ideas shared with us to help keep you safe: Review your credit report and Social Security Earned Income Statement annually, use a miro or cross-cut paper shedder, DO NOT carry your Social Security card, and avoid public Wifi… just to name a few. Need more info or help? Ask Dan, Brenda or Jacob
