Change: OMC New Year's Day (Observed) Annual Breakfast January 2nd at 9 a.m.

Change in plans.  We will not meet on Saturday, however,  the annual OGRES New Years Day breakfast social has been moved to New Years Day (Observed) on Monday, January 2nd at 9 a.m.  

We will meet at Steve's Cafe at 2483 East Fairview Avenue in Meridian.  

With Sympathy

Susan Michele Elton

OGRES condolences go out to Mr. and Mrs. Rip City at this time.  Rip City's only sister passed away on Christmas Day after battling a long series of illnesses.  Here is a link to her obituary:

A memorial service will be held for those who would like to meet and share memories of her.  There will no be a formal service, as Susan wanted a memorial where people laughed and told stories.  Her only request was that you wear your favorite color instead of wearing black.

The service will begin at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, December 31st, at the LDS church at 519 South 12th Avenue in Caldwell.  Remembrances may be left for Susan's family at

This wonderful and unique lady will definitely be missed.   May our thoughts and prayers be with Rip City and his family at this time.

OMC December 2016 Social Report

Wow!  Probably one of the most fun meetings or socials I have attended.  Present: G-Man, Smooth, Bomber, Duke, Rip City and Grim.  Absent:  Big Easy, Zeus and Krome.

Special thanks to Duke for bringing the Taco Bell extravaganza for us to feast upon.  I think I ate more than my allotment but I am not apologizing.  You just can't beat those Doritos Tacos, as far as I am concerned.

We then had the White Elephant Christmas gift exchange and that was also a lot of fun.  Members ended up with a belt buckle, rabbit and lizard seat cover, collectible Hillary Clinton nutcracker, a novelty skull, Harley clip or a can of Harley Davidson oil.  Many steals and trades occurred adding to the suspense.

Along with politics, many other discussions were held.  Several discussions will be revisited during the January meeting including the guest policy, Ride Calendar, meetings and socials and spouse-included Socials.

New 2017 ride calendars and the updated OMC Constitution and By-Laws were handed out.  These need to be reviewed, by members,  and most discussions will be taken back up at the very important January meeting.

Meetings and socials will be at 6 p.m. for 2017.  All dates on the OMC event calendar are written in stone so people can plan their schedules.  No dates will be changed no matter the level of attendance.

The soiree was concluded with the inspection of Rip City's new ride.  A complete inventory and inspection was completed and ended with Rip City leaving most of the rubber on the rear tires on G-Man's concrete driveway.  You just can't beat the smell and testosterone building process of a good burnout.

See you January 5th, 2017 at 6 p.m. at the Clubhouse on Fairview.
