MEMBERS and ORGANIZERS, MEETING and GREET

Christmas is over and a New Year has dawned. After the first week as a new group we wound up with 33 Charter members and that was on July 1st. Before the charter ride we elected our officers, 27 members voted and Carol and Danny were running the show. No one knew what I was doing and how I was planning this group and the direction we were headed. I then gave the group to all of the MEMBERS and that means that if you joined yesterday you have a say in the direction your group is headed. With 116 members only 59 can remove anyone from their position and with 2 co-organizers running the show your vote does count.

At this meeting we will go over the direction this group is headed because it will only grow now that word is getting out. Good changes are in the works to allow for saftey first.

Also at this meeting I will be stepping down as Organizer and turning the group completly over to Friendship Riders and that will complete my vision of change that those 33 charter members were looking for. So come on out lets eat and have a little Fellowship among FRIENDS.

    I wanted to say also, that I'm moving to colorado in a few days so that was last opportunity to have seen the group - at least for a while. Everyone ride safe and have a great year!

    Hey y'all before you do the Meet and Greet tomorrow evening you might want to run by the Biker General Store. This is the very LAST weekend that they'll be open. Mike and I don't have any extra $$ right now, or we'd be there to give Karen and her mom a good send off. It sucks that they'll be leaving. The always had great deals, so if any of y'all can head out there, I'm sure she and her mom would appreciate it.

  • Rick A.

    OK, My wife Carol is a little unhappy with me because my new Triumph spent the night in the living room and her Harley stayed in the lockup?

    I don't understand women? I know Windell has a nice workshop, but I don't. I have to pull my bikes into the living room for maintenance, where there is conditioned air and big screen TV ))))))

      I hope I can show you in person Gary. It's not new, just new to me.
