OMC March 6, 2014 Meeting Report

The meeting started promptly at 7 p.m. with the destruction of Taco Bell tacos and burritos generously furnished by Duke.  Present: G-Man, Duke, Grim, Rip City, Big Easy, Bomber, Krome and Smooth.  Not present: Zeus.

A short discussion was held reference the OMC Spring Run to Challis.  Members were encouraged to make their reservations now as I advised Gretchen to treat us as any other repeat customers.  Rooms will not be held without personally made reservations and other customers may beat us to the rooms.  If you camp out, be prepared to pay for dinner and breakfast.  The owners are my friends and I admittedly am very protective of them.

A challenge coin "challenge" was made and all had their coins except Krome.  He will be bringing food and refreshments to the May OMC Meeting unless we dine out.  Krome almost made up for being coin-less by being the only member to ride a Harley to the meeting instead of a cage.  I am sure glad he bought that gorgeous Deuce for his wife for Christmas.

A discussion was renewed about a ride to supplant the current route for the OMC Summer run.  After discussion and epitaphs it was decided G-Man would go back to the drawing board with a 3 day, 1000 mile limit.  Many thanks to G-Man for his hard work and long suffering, by tolerating Grim's bad humor, in attacking this daunting project.  If only I could read a map.  Should get a GPS on my Street Glide I suppose.  I'm just not ready to turn in my MAN card, I guess.

Grim announced he would not be able to do Route 66 this coming summer due to another shoulder surgery.  There are plans afloat to do a 1 week California Redwoods ride in August instead.  Route 66 will happen in summer of 2015 without fail.  Grim will be retired with too much time on his hands.

There was some talk of Sturgis but only innuendo.

A guest was present at the meeting.  Reference this guest, a prospect invitation will NOT be forthcoming by unanimous vote of the primary officers.  Please contact Grim for further information as I was unable to advise at the meeting.

OMC members were encouraged to send out group texts or e-mails for impromptu rides during the upcoming season.  Get a hold of me and I will send them for you if you wish.

We have a great OMC and I appreciate everyone's participation and passion.
