OGRES Motorcycle Club May 2022 Meeting Report


The OMC May meeting convened at the appointed place and time. Members present: Rowdy, G-Man, Smooth, RipCity, Bomber, Grim and Gundy. Members absent: Duke, Slick and Krome.

The meeting was brought to order after knife show and tell. Since the riding since is almost upon us, we discussed OMC road etiquette and discussed the role of leading the pack as outlined in the appendices in the OMC Constitution and By-Laws.

We also discussed lodging and the importance to check with the Best Western in Orofino if you are on the waiting list. However, last year they called us at the end of May to offer rooms.

We walked over to the official eating place of the OGRES Motorcycle Club. The place was relatively quiet and we had a nice meal.

The next event is the OMC Spring Run in June. 

That is all.

New OGRES Motorcycle Club Swag


There is a new decal on it's way for OMC Member's choice of usage. I will bring the decals to the May meeting. If you want one sooner, let Grim know and he will get one to you.

That is all...

OGRES MC 2022 March Meeting Report


The meeting was held at the appointed place and time. Members present: RipCity, Duke, Grim, Rowdy, GMan, Smooth, Krome, Gundy and Bomber. Member absent: Slick (in Florida).

We met at the Fairview Clubhouse initially to discuss some Club business. Grim had quite an adventure on the way so he was a little late. We talked about the upcoming OMC Runs and everyone was encouraged to get their hotel accommodations made as soon as possible.

If you have made reservations for a ride that you are not able to attend,  do not cancel the reservations yet. Instead, let the Vice President know and hopefully they can be passed on to attendees who haven't made reservations yet. This mostly is meant for Hagerman, Orofino and Joseph. Salmon usually isn't a problem.

RipCity won the door prize again. It wasn't a Toyota Tundra (like Duke) but it was a nice knife.

We discussed some politics, health and safety topics and it was very pleasant. We finally headed over to the Sockeye for some food.

In the future, Grim will make reservations as we had a bit of a wait for our table but the staff was very quick to take care of us. It was a nice meal but not as nice as the railroad car to be able to hear everyone.

The next meeting is May 5th on Cinco de Mayo. See you there. We will ride somewhere for Mexican food.

2022 Valentines Day Dinner at the Railroad Car

It was a great night for the OGRES members and their brides at the Sockeye Grill Railroad Car. Everyone was present except for Krome, Slick and RipCity. 

The car was set up nicely for us and it was extremely pleasant having a nice quiet dinner with the OGRES finest along with the guys. It was almost eerie as we were able to hear all conversations without straining our ears or brains.

Our server was super attentive, efficient and timely. Our food arrived in a very timely manner and no words of complaint were heard about the quality. 

The conversation ranged all over but were all interesting and relevant except for G-Man's choice of photographs.

A very nice time was had by all. We forgot to talk trash about the missing members....oh wait...I guess we did talk some.

The next meeting is March 3rd.

Valentines Day Night Out with Spouses This Coming Friday, February 18th


Our annual Valentines Day night out with our spouses is this coming Friday, February 18th, at 6:30 p.m. 

The event will be held at the Sockeye Grill right next door to the Barn on Fairview. 

Our illustrious road captain, G-Man, secured the railroad car that is located outside just north of the main entrance.

It should be a very nice soiree and hopefully all the members will be able to attend with or without their spouses.

That is all...

Bomber's Beauties


Bomber never lacks for stuff to think about or stuff to create. So very cool.

January 2022 OGRES MC Meeting Report


The members of the OGRES Motorcycle Club met at the appointed place and time. Members present: Rowdy, Gundy, Smooth, Rip City, Slick, G-Man, Bomber, Krome and Grim. Member absent: Duke.

We first met in the Barn Clubhouse and chatted for a bit until all the members had arrived. Grim handed out the updated OMC Events calendar and we talked a bit about reservations and plans for the upcoming riding season.

There was a general discussion about ride readiness and rehabilitation plans so everyone is ready for the Spring Ride. Fingers crossed.

A vote was taken and it was decided that the gift exchange would precede our evening meal.

Numbers were drawn and Rowdy went first for the second straight year. Not much "stealing" took place as all the members had brought some very cool and special gifts. All in all, it was a very nice time and it appeared all the members had a great time. It was also a great way to keep Rip City awake and alert.

After checking out everyone's gifts and figuring how to operate Rip City's gift, we adjourned to the official dining spot of the OGRES Motorcycle Club.

It is always fun to see what everyone orders and our server was very gracious and patient. Rip City's tater tots were actually pretty crispy. There was great conversation, companionship and laughter. What a great time.

We decided it was time to leave when the restaurant was empty except for us and they were starting to mop the floors. 

We headed back over to the barn. Rowdy must have had a hot date as he bee-lined for his car and roared out of the parking lot. Slick and Rip City were not far behind. The rest of us checked our deodorant and such to make sure we hadn't caused the rapid exits.

Special thanks to our esteemed Road Captain, G-Man for hosting the event. Also special thanks to V.P. Rip City for all the great photos.

The next event will be February 18th for our annual Valentine's Day bash with the spouses. G-Man pulled off a fabulous coup in procuring the Railroad Car at Sockeye for the gala.
