July 2010 Newsletter

  1. 1. JULY<br />2010<br />DEM BOYZ MC<br />“MONTHLY NEW LETTER”<br />ACCIDENTS, CAN WE AVOID THEM?<br /> BUSINESS MANAGER, AYLEEON WAS INVOLVED IN A SINGLE VEHICLE ACCIDENT THAT RESULTED IN THE COMPLETE TOTALLING OF OUR PRESIDENT, CALI BOI’S BIKE. <br /> AS IT IS COMMON AMOUNG ALL MC’S THAT FELLOW BROTHER’S ALLOW EACH TO RIDE THEIR BIKES, WE MUST STILL TAKE INTO ACCOUNT ONE’S OWN ABILITIES AND EXPERIENCE. WE ALL KNOW THAT WE LIKE TO DRIVE FAST, BUT IF THAT DESIRE PUTS YOURSELF OR ANOTHER RIDER AT RISK, IT MUST BE SUBSIDED. COULD THIS ACCIDENT HAD BEEN AVOIDED? MAYBE. BUT THAT IS NEITHER HERE OR THERE. WE MUST TAKE RESPONSIBILITY OF OUR OWN ACTIONS, NO MATTER THE OUT COMING, GOOD OR BAD. <br />DUE TO THE MONTHLY ROTATIONS, IT MAY BE NECESSARY TO CANCEL A MEETING DUE TO LACK OF MEMBERS BEING OUT IN THE FIELD DURING TIMES OF CLUB MEETINGS. THIS DOESN’T MEAN THAT YOU CAN SKIP OUT ON MEETINS. THE ONLY EXCEPTION TO THE BI-LAWS OF THE CLUB IS DUE TO FAMILY OR WORK ISSUES ARISING AT THE SAME TIME PERIOD OF THE MEETING. PLEASE NOTIFY AN OFFICER IF YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ATTEND DUE TO THE ABOVE REASONS. MAKE SURE YOU NOTIFY SOMEONE BEFORE THE DATE OF THE MEETING OR THE DAY OF. NOT 10-20 MINUTES PRIOR TO THE MEETING OR DURING THE MEETING. <br /> WE UNDERSTAND THAT UNFORSEEN EMERGENCIES CAN ARISE., AND EACH WILL BE ACCESSED AS THEY ARISE.<br /> ALSO REMEMBER THAT MISSING A MEETING, WILL RESULT IN CLUB FINES BEING IMPLIED AND POSSIBLE DISMISSAL FOR REPEATED ACTIONS.<br />MEETING NIGHT<br /> HAS STATED IN LAST MONDAY’S NIGHT MEETING, CLUB MEETING TIMES HAVE BEEN CHANGED TO SATUARDAYS AT 1730. DUE TO OUR PRESIDENT HAVING TO ATTEND BNCOC, WE HAVE MOVED THE MEETING PLACE TO THE VICE PRESIDENTS HOUSE, LOCATED AT 1900 ANZIO ST UNIT B. JUST TO THE WEST OF THE BLUE TRACK. USE YOUR PHONE ROSTER TO GET MORE DETAIL DIRECTIONS FROM SOMEONE OR GET WITH THE OFFICERS THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN THERE AND RIDE OVER TOGETHER. <br />CALI BOI, TOP GUN AND SAVAGE SURVEYING THE NOW DESTORIED BIKE<br />
  2. 2. NOTHING SURVIVES THESE DAYS WITHOUT THE BENJAMINS $$$<br /> THIS IS A SENITIVE SUBJECT FOR SOME, BUT IT’S SOMETHING THAT NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED AND ADDRESSED NOW. “MONTHLY DUES”<br /> I REALIZE THAT MOST OF US HAVE FAMILIES AND OTHER COMMENTS, BUT MONTHLY DUES ISN’T THAT HIGH, IT COULD BE HIGHER BUT WE HAVE STIRVED TO KEEP THEM WITHIN A REASONABLE AMOUNT. BUT THERE IS A RISING ISSUE WITH MEMBERS NOT PAYING THEIR DUES ON TIME. A FEW MONTHS AGO WHEN WE FIRST GOT START WAS UNDERSTANDABLE, BUT NOW THAT WE ARE ON THE RISE THERE REALLY ISN’T MUSH OF AN EXCUSE THAT WE CAN THINK OF AS TO WHY MEMBERS CAN’T PAY ON TIME. <br /> DUES ARE DUE EACH MONTH AT THE FIRST MEETING OF THAT MONTH. THE DUES ARE STILL $25 AND THEY ARE USED TO GET THINGS LIKE PROSPECT SHIRTS AND OTHER ITEMS FOR THE CLUB. THIS MONEY ISN’T USED FOR ANYTHING ELSE. THE OFFICERS DO NOT TOUCH THIS MONEY, NOR IS THE MONEY USED FOR PERSONAL ITEMS OF ANY KIND. <br /> AT TIMES, MORE THEN THE NORMAL DUES FOR THE MONTH COULD BE ASKED FOR, BUT IS NOT MANDITORY. SUCH SITUATIONS COULD BE LIKE HELPING A FELLOW BROTHER OUT WITH GETTING HIS VEST ORDERED AND RECEIVED IN A TIMELY MANNER WHEN HE’S STILL A PROSPECT. THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE IF THE TIME THAT PROSPECT JOINS IS DURING THE MIDDLE TO END OF THE MONTH, WHEN PERSONAL MONEY COULD BE TIED UP IN OTHER THINGS OR FAMILY ISSUES. <br /> SO PLEASE FOR THE BETTERMENT<br />OF CLUB AND THE FURTHER GROWTH OF THE CLUB, IF YOU CAN HELP PLEASE DO. PAY YOUR MONTHLY DUES ON TIME AND MAKE SURE TO SET THAT MONEY ASIDE, WHEN DOING YOUR MONTHLY EXPENSES.<br />THE MONTHLY NEWS LETTER<br /> AS YOU CAN SEE, WE ARE NOW DISTURBING A MONTHLY NEWS LETTER. AT MOST TIMES THIS NEWS LETTER WILL BE SENT OUT DURING THE FIRST WEEK OF THE MONTH, TO REFLECT THE IDEAS, PROBLEMS, UP-COMING EVENTS, SITUATIONS AND OTHER THINGS THAT COME TO THE MIND OF THE MEMBERS.<br /> DON’T THINK THAT THIS NEWS LETTER IS BIAS IN ANYWAY, IF YOU HAVE AN IDEA TO AN ARTICLE, THEN TYPE IT UP, AND EMAIL IT TO VICE PRESIDENT CASPER AT casper_dbmc_irwin@hotmail.com AND HE’LL REVIEW IT FOR THE MONTHLY NEWS LETTER. WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO PUBLISH YOUR ARTICLE IN THE NEWS LETTER, BUT PLEASE UNDERSTAND IF YOU ARTICLE DOESN’T MAKE IT THAT MONTH, IT STILL MAY BE PASTED ON TO THE FOLLOWING MONTH. <br /> AS THE MONTHS CONTINUE, MORE PICTURES OF THE DB MC ITSELF WILL APPEAR IN EACH NEWSLETTER ALONG WITH OTHER INFO PRETAINING TO THE CLUB’S NEEDS AND WANTS.<br />WHEN YOU GOT YOUR DRINK ON, YOU GOT YOUR KEYS HANGING.<br /> IT HAS BEEN BROUGHT TO OUR ATTENTION THAT THERE ARE FELLOW RIDERS, DRINKING AND RIDING. AS THIS ISN’T A DIRECT PROBLEM FOR THE CLUB, THIS DOESN’T MEAN THAT IT’S NOT A PROBLEM OVERALL. THE MORE RIDERS OUT THERE THAT CHOICE TO RIDE THEIR BIKES AFTER CONSUMING ALCOHOL IS THREATENING US ALL. THERE IS NO TELLING THE EXTENT THAT THE BASE ITSELF WILL GO TO DO PREVENT THIS. BUT REMEMBER, IF YOU’RE DRINKING, YOUR BIKES PARKING. <br /> WHEN CLUB FUNCTIONS ARE GOING ON, KEYS WILL BE COLLECTED AT THE BEGINNING OF THE EVENT AND STORED TO PREVENT SOMEONE FROM TAKING OFF ON THEIR BIKE AFTER DRINKING. <br /> THIS BEING SAID, WHETHER A RIDER IS A MEMBER OR NOT, BE THE BIGGER MAN AND HELP SAVE YOUR FELLOW RIDER’S LIFE OR CAREER, BUT STOPPING THEM<br />BEFORE THEY END UP TAKING THEIR LAST RIDE. <br />NEEDING MEMBER BIKE PICS<br /> GOT PICTURES OF YOUR BIKE, SEND THEM TO VICE PRES. FOR PUBLISHING IN THE MONTHLY NEWS LETTERS; HOT GIRLS ON BIKE OPTIONAL.<br />
  3. 3. GETTING THE WORD OUT!<br /> MANY MC’S LIVE, RIDE AND MEET IN THE HIGH DESERT AREA. BUT NONE OFFER WHAT WE OFFER. A BROTHERHOOD OF RIDERS, THAT RIDE NOT ONLY RIDE ROCKETS BUT CRUISERS AS WELL. AND WE DON’T JUST HAVE ACTIVE DUTY MILITARY EITHER. WE HAVE PRIOR SERVICE, CIVILIANS ALONG SIDE THOSE SERVING ACTIVELY.<br /> THAT BEING SAID, REACH OUT TO YOUR FELLOW RIDERS THAT YOU SEE CRUISING THE HIGHWAYS AND BYWAYS OF OUR AREA. TELL THEM OF US, GIVE THEM A CARD. DON’T HAVE A DB MC CARD, THEN ASK FOR ONE. BOTH THE PRESIDENT AND VICE HAVE BUSINESS CARDS<br />4th OF JULY AND SEND OFF FOR CALI BOI<br /> WELL THE PARTY FOR THE 4TH JULY AND SEND OFF FOR OUR PRESIDENT WAS A GREAT TIME. CLUB MEMBER TURN OUT WAS REALLY LOW. KNOWING THAT THERE WERE OTHER FAMILY EVENTS GOING ON AND THAT THE PARTY ITSELF WAS ON SHORT NOTICE, BE AWARE THAT WE STILL HAD A GOOD TIME. THE OVER ALL FIREWORK SHOW WAS GREAT AND THE FOOD WAS EVEN BETTER. <br /> HOPEFULLY, AT OUR NEXT TURN OUT, WE CAN HAVE MORE MEMBERS ATTEND. <br /> REMEMBER THAT OUR UP COMING BBQ IS COMING, ONCE A HARD TIME IS GIVEN YA’LL KNOW. <br />“KEEP IT SHINY SIDE UP!”<br />BIKE NIGHTS, NEEDING OUR BROTHERS TO STEP UP<br /> EVERY FRIDAY, THERE IS A BIKE/CAR NIGHT IN VICTORVILLE, CA IN FRONT OF THE LOWES ON BEAR VALLEY ROAD IT’S ABOUT 81 MILES FROM FORT IRWIN. IT HAS BEEN MADE AWARE BY OUR PRESIDENT, THAT HE WANTS A MININUM ONE RIDER TO ATTENDED EVERY FRIDAY. ESPECIALLY ONCE EVERYONE’S VEST ARRIVE. WE CAN’T BE KNOW UNLESS WE ADVERTISE AND THE BEST WAY TO DO THAT IS TO RIDE AND APPEAR AT EVENTS WITH COLORS ON. <br /> IT IS WELL KNOWN THAT A MAJORITY OF US OUR ACTIVE MILITARY AND IT CAN SOMETIMES BE VERY DIFFICULT TO ATTEND EVENT ESPECIALLY WHEN THOSE EVENT FALL ON THE SAME DATES AS ROTATIONS. THIS BEING THE CASE, NOT ALL OF US HAVE THE SAME SCHEDULE. WITH THAT BEING SAID, THERE SHOULDN’T BE A HUGE PROBLEM WITH AT LEAST ONE BROTHER ATTENDING THE FRIDAY NIGHT EVENT.<br />FOR YOU TO HAND OUT. WE ARE ALSO WORKING ON GETTING SOME SORT OF FLYER MADE OR POST CARD TYPE FLYER THAT CAN BE HANDED OUT. SEEING THAT BUSINESS CARDS FIT IN ALL POCKETS WE HAVE STAYED WITH THAT SO FAR. IF YOU CAN THINK OF ANOTHER WAY TO HELP GET OUR NAME OUT THERE, STEP UP AT OUR NEXT MEETING AND VOICE YOUR IDEA. <br /> REMEMBER THAT NOT ALL IDEAS WILL BE MADE INTO A REALITY., DUE TO COST OR OVERALL IMPACT ON THE PUBLIC VIEW. BUT WE THE OFFICERS OF DB MC ARE ALWAYS INTERESTED IN WHAT OUR FELLOW BROTHERS HAVE TO OFFER. HELP YOURSELF BY HELPING THE CLUB.<br />HEY ACTIVE DUTY! DO YOU KNOW THE REGS FOR ON & OFF DUTY RIDING?<br /> THIS MONTH, ALONG WITH THIS NEWS LETTER WILL BE A COPY OF THE FORT IRWIN MEMORANDUM THAT STATES ALL THE RULES AND REGS FOR RDING A MOTORCYCLE ON AND OFF POST FOR ACTIVE DUTY MEMBERS. REMEMBER THAT IF YOU ARE PRIOR SERVICE OR A CIVILIAN, THAT THESE RULES APPLY TO YOU WHEN YOU COME ONTO POST FOR MEETINGS OR RIDES.<br /> THERE WAS SOME DEBATE AT ONE OF OUR LAST MEETINGS WHAT THE ACTUAL RULES STATED. THIS WILL HELP TO ELIMANATE ANY CONFUSSION ON THE RULES AND REGS SURROUNDING RIDING OF A MOTORCYCLE AND THE PROPER GEAR (PPE) TO BE WORN<br />BIG RED & FAMILY OBSERVING THE FINALLY FIREWORK SHOW<br />CASPER, CALI BOI & BIG RED<br />

  5. 5. DEM BOYZ MC<br />“CLUB BULLETIN”<br />“DON’T LET THIS BE YOU”<br />05 JULY 2010, AT OR AROUND 2000, ONE OF OUR FELLOW BROTHERS WAS INVOLVED<br />IN AN ACCIDENT THAT COULD HAVE RESULTED IN THE LOST OF THE ABILITY TO WALK OR<br />DEATH. LUCKILY FOR HIM, THAT WASN’T THE CASE AND HE ONLY RECEIVED ROAD RASH <br />AND A HARD LESSON IN SPEED MANAGEMENT.<br />ALL OF THIS COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED HAD THE PROPER RIDING PROCEDURES BEEN<br />ADHERED TO. <br />THE WORSE PART OF THIS, IS THAT ANOTHER BROTHER WAS WITH HIM DURING THIS<br />ACCIDENT, BOTH WERE EXCEEDING THE POSTED SPEED LIMIT TO A POINT BEYOND AT<br />LEAST ONE OF THEIR ABILITIES. <br />AGAIN, WE THE BROTHERS OF DEM BOYZ MC, MUST STEP UP TO HELP OUR FELLOW <br />BROTHER. AS THIS IS WHAT WE DO IN TIMES SUCH AS THESE, REMEMBER TO KNOW <br />YOURSELF AND YOUR BIKE. NEVER EXCEED YOUR ABILITIES, NO MATTER HOW <br />TEMPTING.<br />VICE PRES. CASPER<br />
