March 2016 Chapter Meeting

March 8th, 2016
The Board Room

Well last night was the first meeting of the year and everything went very well.  I would like to thank everyone that came out to the meeting.  It was a very fun and enjoyable evening.

I also would like to say how honored and humbled I am to be the director of this chapter.  I hope to make this a very safe and fun year of riding!

Director

Frank 3The first subject talked about was a sad one.  The passing of Frank LaBarge

Frank passed away last Wednesday (03/02/16) after a tough battle with cancer.  He was a veteran from the Vietnam war, a retired California police officer and a really cool guy that told awesome stories.

Frank was our Director for many years.  He was there for the first Pizza night, he had a hand in the creation of our AWOL book.

There will be a service for Frank out at Fort Logan on Thursday 03/10/16 @ 12:00 PM staging area C.

We have a few other members that have had some medical and/or health issues.

Dan Leffert had a stroke and is recovering at this time

Tom Karlovec took a fall and then had some heart issues.

Bill Kocsi had phenomena (believe).

If you would like to send any message to any of these members, email me at director@rmhog and I will make sure that they get the messages.

Happy 37 years

March 2016 meetingAnd cake was had by all.   In celebration of Rocky Mountain Harley Davidson being around for 37 years, we brought in a cake. Judging by the amount of cake that was left, it was a success.

Dues for 2016

blury-logo-bg

Dues for 2016 are increasing to $30 per year.

While the cost of the membership hasn’t gone up in more years than anyone can remember, the costs of the running the club have not stayed consistent.

There are many expenses that may not be obvious in running an organization like ours.

  • Awesome Christmas dinner we had last year right here at the Boardroom.
  • Printing of AWOL books and ride card.
  • Bank charges, Professional fees, Licenses and Permits as well as office supplies.
  • Website/email fees
  • Harley Officer Training (HOT) This year in April

Membership has dropped (600+ at one time)

All the officers are very diligent about keeping our expenses down so we can continue to provide a quality experience for all of our members.
