OGRES Motorcycle Club March 2023 Mandatory Meeting Report


The March 2023 OMC meeting was held at the appointed place and time. 

Members present: RipCity, Gundy, Bomber, G-Man, Smooth, Duke, Rowdy and Grim.

Members absent: Krome and Slick.

We didn't have an agenda so we sat in the Clubhouse and had a nice exchange of travel, life as we know it and general living in a free country stories. 

Grim will be putting together a hat and t-shirt order adorned with the OGRES livery. A blog post is forthcoming with more information. Please email Grim with your hat and t-shirt size for this venture. The list that was compiled at the meeting was lost in the wind.

We also made time to talk trash about the missing OMC members. No one is a close second, to Krome, for missing the most OMC functions ever. (Actually, we missed them.)

Members were reminded that all OMC 2023 Run venues were open to getting reservations made. It was a timely reminder as Grim found some reservation discrepancies in Joseph, Oregon that have been remedied.

Smooth made a motion to adjourn to the Sockeye Grill for dinner. It was seconded and the motion was passed in initiate motion to the restaurant.

We had a great time at the Sockeye although Duke had to sit across from G-Man and found himself having to talk business during this leisurely laid back OMC time. Lol. 

The meals were great and RipCity's crispy, crispy, crispy tater tots truly were. Maybe the best in memory.

We finally topped up on maximum fun and called it a night. It is true that things get better with age. We are coming up on 13 years as a Club. 'Nuff said.

Update Concerning the OGRES MC 2023 Fall Run on August 24, 2023


Currently, the Indian Lodge Motel has blocked out 9 rooms for the OMC Fall Run awaiting OMC members to call and make individual credit card reservation confirmations.

As of this moment, the following OMC members have called to nail down their individual reservations:

Grim, Gundy, G-Man and Bomber.

All other OMC members and guests that plan on attending the OMC Fall Run need to call ASAP and make their individual reservation confirmations. 

We do not want the Indian Lodge Motel to lose money by holding rooms that are not used by OMC members.

The phone number at the Indian Lodge Motel is (541) 432-2651. Karen is very gracious and will take care of you. 

Make sure you state you are with the OGRES Motorcycle Club.

OMC Night at the Steelheads Game Report by Rowdy


Guest blogger: Rowdy

Duke provided a very fun evening for a few OGRES members and their families. The day began with Bomber graciously doing ticket handoffs for the few OGRES members who were able to participate. 

Tickets were slated for Bomber and his lovely wife Brenda, G-Man and his better half Sherri, G-Man's handsome young buck Nate, Rowdy and his gorgeous babe Diane and Jim & Marcie Crawford who were invited by Rowdy. By midday, Rowdy learned the tickets were not all spoke for and convinced his son, Jake, to take advantage fo the opportunity by bringing Jess, the girl he is dating.

The last minute invitees further prove young people either (1) rarely have important things going on or (2) will drop anything for a free event where Dad pays for the snacks.

Speaking of snacks, the nacho plate was monstrous and who knew authentic poutine (gravy covered of the most famous Canadian dishes) were served for the local restaurant.

Rowdy spent a great deal of time explaining the rules to the other participants as icing the puck, line changes and power plays were not understood by all attendees. However, the game was quite engaging with the home team going behind early, tying the score, pulling ahead and then an empty net goal during the final minutes of play. Bomber and Brenda left a little early to attend a very important basketball game but all others stayed until the end and witnessed the empty net goal as the Steelheads won 3-1.

Unfortunately, the only picture taken did not include all of the OGRES members - mental note for next time - but suffice it to say, all had a great time.

Big shout out to Duke for thinking of the OGRES brothers when he had tickets to spare. Thanks!
