June17, 2008 Business Meeting
Meeting called to order @ 7:00pm
Thank You Mike O’Connor for planning the poker run for the Roar to shore event. We raised 685.00 for The Father Fred Foundation.
Vicki suggested next year that we consider moving the Father
Fred event to a different weekend in July.
Email will go out reminding the chapter members of the Million Mile Monday and both rides that are scheduled.
Steve Purkiss confirmed that the monies collected for the Progressive dinner were given out to all four hosts of the event. Money from last year that went to the chapter by mistake will also be divided up and given out.
Vicki would like to have a mass email sent out soliciting responses from the members on what there spark was to ride a Harley.
Father Fred signs are ready to be picked up.
Vicki was informed that new Harley owners are questioning Eric if they get membership cards. This was discussed, and the vote was to start new membership cards in October.
A motion was also made by Eric to give new members a rocker patch starting in 2009; this motion was 2nd by Chris V.
A discussion was held about how many chapter events can be attend before you actually have to become a member. We have a few members that the significant other is not a member, and has attended several events. Vicki will check on this.
Vicki stressed that we as officers need to engage new members and also re-engage old members to become more active, or feel more welcome to the chapter.
The date for the picnic in august is now tabled, Jim will try to see if any member planning a BBQ if the picnic could be combined with that.
Discussions were done on; website and headings for road captains/advanced rider classes being held earlier in the season/bill at Peegeo’s needs to be taken care of.
