Hey folks. I know we just had a pole for chapter leader between Blksiryder and myself. According to FTE rules we need to have a chapter meeting and elect a leader and officers. I appreciate the people that voted for me. I find it hard to be the leader of a chapter when nobody has ever met me. I feel like I have met my goal. This chapter is a lot more active thanks to the efforts of blksiryder and myself. We need to have a few small get to gethers and then have a State wide get to gether and elect officers. Any ideas and suggestions will be appreciated. I just want to go about this the right way. The more activity the better. Bilksiryder is in South LA and Im in North LA. Between the 2 of us we should be able to plan things. We are willing to work together to make this chapter active. All of your help will be greatly appreciated. Please post or pm us. We are here to help the LA chapter.
Robert I think that you will find the "Poll" you held for chapter leader is enough to "Elect" that leader. You can have the election online. There have been several chapter leaders elected that way.

Keep in mind that the first meet is the hardest. If more than 1 person shows up then it is a meet. From that point you will find more members willing to show their support for the meets. We had 4 members at our first meet this year. DE Chapter was formed 12-29-2006. The next meet we had like 25. Each meet thereafter there were a few more. So don't get discouraged if a lot of members don't show up for the early meets.
Im going to find out more info on the park in Scialy Island. I know that they are riding trucks there now. I need to find out what kind of trails that they have so I can give all of you accurate data. That way we can be prepared for the trails.
-Who is going?
-Why is this hard??? Took a year to help the Chevy Avalanche Club in LA to get going, then another 3 years for the Tacoma group in LA going... I seem to buy a FORD at the early stages too...
I became chapter leader in Tn by a vote of the members. We didn't have a meeting or anything. I'm working on a G2G for next month. I'll be happy no matter how many guys show up. The west side of Tn is a tough place to have G2Gs. Tn is so wide its tough to get members to drive from east to west. I plan to divide the state into 3 sections & see if this helps. I hope to get east ,middle & west side leaders to help me get the chapter more active.
