    Not sure why your posts required approvals before they showed. I approved it so it would post up. Sorry for the delay.

      Is there another place you had in mind?
      The National Facebook group like Patrick mentioned.

          Longview/Kelso is the city center. 98632. Anything within 50 miles would probably work.

          Thanks

            Ok, so we have our first official meeting and ride coming up this weekend. What exactly needs to happen in order for us to become an official chapter. I know electing 4 officers is required. Probably a charter. What else?

              We will need the names / forum names / e-mails and their positions in the chapter. We need an e-mail confirmation that you have reviewed the national bylaws. Once we have that you are good to go. As for local bylaws you either have to simply agree to follow national bylaws, but we encourage all chapters to put their own bylaws in place. Does not have to happen at the first meeting, but no time like then to get the ball rolling on bylaws, when you will hold elections each year, amount if any dues you are going to charge, and things like that.

              You can review the bylaws and see sample chapter bylaws at this link - http://vulcanriders.us/full-width/

              You can also find a bunch of information under the "Chapter Info" tab on the homepage of the website. Once you are official we send some additional items as well.

                  I wouldn't mind joining in. I created a Facebook account so as to keep in contact and even requested to join. But now Facebook refuses to let me get back online. I can sign-in but it immediately goes to a screen saying that I need to input my mobile phone number so they can send me a six-digit code to use to secure the account. However at that point, not matter what format I input the number, it won't accept it. So I'm screwed.
                  I greatly dis-like Facebook.
                  Is there some other way I can do this?

                    Chris. The easiest way to do this is to meet up with us on Thursday at 6pm at the Goble Tavern in Goble. It is on Hwy 30 in between St Helens and Rainier.

                    I work in Beaverton and usually go straight from work to the Goble on Thursdays. If you'd like to ride over the hill with me, that'd be great.

                    Shoot me a text 215-990-9534.

                      Ok, I have been looking at my Washington state maps. I have two of them. On neither map is a town called Goble. For that matter, neither have a town called Beaverton. And to top it off, I cannot find a Hwy 30 anywhere.
                      Give me some more hints....

                            No. I'm in the Fredrickson/Spanaway area in Washington. That's about 2 to 2.5 hrs north.
                            I can meetup for summer rides but not for meetings.

                              Then the group you want us there Pacific NW Vulcan Riders out of Lynnwood/Everett. Great group of guys. I used to be the VP for that group. Outstanding chapter.

                                Actually. no. The farther away from that northern traffic the better. There's nothing north of SeaTac that I care about visiting. I'd rather ride south (and then off to wherever a given ride goes) than north.
                                I had looked into that group sometime within the past year. Looks like a good bunch of folks but they're just in the wrong place for me. They looked good but I'd rather move around places with a bit less civilization.
