    Looking to start a SW Washington/NW Oregon Chapter

    Circumstances that were beyond my control meant I had to move out of the Seattle area and give up the VP patch. But it also means I have an opportunity to start a new chapter in the Vancouver WA/Portland OR area. I'm thinking of calling it the Columbia River Chapter so I don't alienate either state.

    Looking to start a Facebook page this week, and hopefully a website soon, but I'm not good at those kind of things.

    Anywho, any help would be appreciated.

    Ok Chris, so here's where I'll try to post that info for people who can't do the Facebook thing. The 1-22 sub forum should fit our needs.

    We'll probably try to start a website just for the CRVR. On the list of things to do.

    This morning Facebook tells me that my account is dis-abled and gave me the chance to tell them if I think this is done in error.

    Yep, I explained it to them AND took the opportunity to speak of my first account problems (They claim they sent, several times, a code that I needed to input back to them yet no such code has been sent to my phone. A phone that they DO have the correct number for.)

    We'll see what happens now but as of now I am still off the air Facebook-wise.

    And again Facebook may be screwing with me! I did get to use it some and interact some with folks in the club but, again, Facebook declares that I need to increase the security of the account. They specifically wanted a picture of me with a clear shot of my face to compare with what I had used in the account. They stated that it may take a while for their facial recognition software to compare the two pictures so that they'd know that it would be me if I made any changes to the account at a later date.
    Well, in the first place I didn't use a face picture in the account but used one of my bike in my driveway. So I sent them the exact same pic so they could compare the two.
    In the second place, I don't have any pictures of me at all, anyway.
    So apparently this is messing up their facial recognition efforts because there's no face given to recognize. Their current reply to me is that they're basically still trying to get it to work and that I cannot use Facebook in the meantime. Only time will tell if they can figure this out but I am not inclined to have faith in the matter.
    I have a feeling that the people there cannot believe that not everybody has a smartphone and not everybody is prone to taking selfies. That's beyond their understanding.
    I really do dis-like Facebook.

    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.

    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.

    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....
