Just wanted to touch base with everyone and let you know that ALL of our National Officers made it home safe from our Texas National Meeting.
We got quite a bit accomplished during that National meeting.
We sanctioned our first TEXAS OBRC Chapter on Tuesday, November 1, 2022. It is located in Fort Worth and as it grows, it will eventually separate into TWO chapters and designate one chapter for Dallas and keep the original chapter in Fort Worth.
We are also still working on building additional chapters in Texarkana, Houston and San Antonio, Texas
NEW PROMOTIONAL CLOTHING
The National Officers decided that for early 2023, we will be ordering a variety of NEW club merchandise, such as shirts, sweat shirts, light jackets, head coverings, etc with our club logo as well as various motorcycle images and phrases, that we can offer to our OBRC Patched Members.
MORE CHAPTER SUPPLIES
We will also be re-ordering chapter supplies such as support vehicle magnets, and the large vinyl banners we use at rallies, as soon as we find a new company to replace our old supplier that closed down.
SUPPORT SHIRTS FOR NON OBRC MEMBERS
Due to the growth in our social media presence, we are trying a brand new idea.
The National Officers also decided to design and order some support shirts and gear that can be sold to Facebook users, that are not patched or chapter members.
This will give others a chance to announce their support of the Older Bikers Riding Club members.
NEW TRAVELING RECRUITER
On a different, note, we are proud to announce that we now have a new “Recruiter” that plans on traveling and spending time in all of the contiguous 48 USA states, with his RV and Bike.
This will give him a chance to spend time with existing chapter officers as well as prospective new chapter leaders.
He will also get to meet individual potential members in various states, that do not have existing chapters close to them yet.
This will be a great boost to our National Public Relations and Recruiting.
Our next National meeting will be held in Daytona Beach, FL during Bike Week on March 3-12, 2023.
Some of our National Officers will also be available for a meeting on May 18-21, 2023 at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch during the Tennessee Motorcycles Music Revival at Hurricane Mills, TN.
So, keep watching this group for more breaking news and updates on OBRC progress here in the USA as well as other countries.
We would also encourage you to join our Facebook Group at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/olderbikers or ask us about the special Facebook groups we have, just for older riders from your particular state or country.
