So, You put your left hand in > you pull your left hand out
You put your left hand in and shake it all about
You do the Okie Poke & you turn yourselves around
That's what it's all about.
You vote your Chapter Leader in,
You pull the boredom part out,
You vote your Chapter Leader in and you
toss the thoughts around
You do the Okie Pokie and
you turn your chapter on,
That's what it's all about
You put your comments in,
Of most you have no doubt,
You put more ideas back in & you
Toss them all about,
You talk about all things that
will surely be make you proud,
That's what it's all about
What makes a great chapter greater ?
You can't just sit around,one has to create its destiny.
boy i tell ya, ive been trying to get people more active in these aspects, but ive noticed in the 13 years ive lived in oklahoma, that getting people to participate in things is very tricky around these parts....but i will keep plugging on in my quest.....speaking of logos, i have been wondering about that subject myself, i would love to have a slick looking sticker for my rig that would let people know about this site, at least the ones that i dont get to tell personally, i tell every Ford owner i come across.....maybe we will have a few more members thanx to me, who knows........
Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but always enough time to do it again??
....Will work for Rep points....
I would like to see us get organized in Oklahoma and start meetings in each region on a regular basis. I'm in Enid and would like to start getting involved with some local get togethers. A cruise to Okarche for Eichen's chicken would be cool. We have one of the best BBQ places in the state out at Lahoma-Turkey Creek BBQ.
I have the worst imaginable schedule. I'm in college working on my Bachelors
degree in Science of Nursing, my mortgage payment is $1700.00 a month and
I work in a large correctional facility (read here prison) and my work hours
are always being shuffled around because I'm "per diem" instead of "full time".
I live in the middle of a 'burb called Broken Arrow, which is exactly a 30 minute drive from everything with all the traffic a large city like Tulsa can dish out. And worst yet, I'm (hopefully temporarily) piloting a MINIVAN!!!!
That, my friend, is truly insult upon injury.
Life is sheer refried habenero sauced hell with cheese on top.
But just between you and me...
The distance factor is a universal thing. It don't go away.
The time factor too.
But people are still worth it.
And I will do what I want to do. And can do, as one person.
It may be in bite sized pieces, but I'll do it. Starting with Broken Arrow
and Bixby, Coweta and Wagoner.
Bite sized pieces.
Mil1ion, thanks for the flyer- do I have your's and FTE's permission to distribute these in my area? No alterations- just the addition of my name
on the "Invited by" line? I'd like to keep a stack of these handy, so when
I see someone with a Ford truck, I can walk up to them and say...
"Hi, my name is Mark... have I got something to share with you!!!"
Far as the OK FTE Logo goes? I'm not worried about it for now- there
are some great folks in our sister chapter- Kansas FTE- that'll be glad to
help, if we ask.
Arnold- I'm a BBQ ADDICT- and Eichen's chicken sounds mighty tasty.
I just had someone from the posts email me from Iraq- after he got my invite to meet here in our hometown of Broken Arrow. Distance don't mean squat.
People do. God bless you SPC Isaac Veron aka "blueislandedge02"! We will
meet one day soon! Until then, watch out for them moving sandpiles, bro!

Well Mark, if you want to post a time and date for your BA/Coweta meet, I'm sure that the Owasso boy's and us Claremore people will do our best to make it out to say... BA? Time really is a problem, for me especially. I too am in the same situation as you Mark in that I am going for my BA, taking 16 hrs. this semester alone, and I work full-time plus some. Here is my schedule, if we can work around it, fantastic, perhaps we should all post our schedules and decide from that when would be the best time to gtg (although I've asked for this before but to no avail).
Monday/Wed: Classes- 9-10AM, 2-3:15 PM Work 5-10
Tuesday/Thursday: Classes 9:30-11AM, 2-3:30PM Work 5-10
Friday: Classes 9-10AM, 12-4PM
Sat/Sunday: Work 5:30AM-4:30PM
Sunday: Church 6-7PM
Yup... it's a pretty ugly schedule, and unfortionately this doesn't include any study time. But I'm willing to see what we can work out.
OK guys, I've been away from FTE for a few days, but I would be willing to do the BA thing too!
As for a logo, here's what I had been working on and Stan you have seen this one, but everybody can let me know what you think and if anybody likes it, I'll finish digitizing it and see what we can do with it after that.
