Hope all is well, I want to start by thanking all that
attended the recent January COC meeting we had in Region 2, and it was a great
turnout. Diamond Jim’s as always is a great host. We had great speakers and
covered a lot of ground in a short amount of time.
I just returned from the COC held in Region 1 in Austin and
attended Legislative Day and the Capitol Run as well. It was great to see the turnout there, the
capitol was flooded with bikers from all over Texas and I suggest if you have
never been there, please plan to attend next year. It was great to meet the representatives from
the different districts and it was truly inspirational to gain more insight
into how our legislative branches work. The Austin team did a fantastic job
organizing and moving the event forward. Our own Commander of US Defender for
Region 2, Mel (Butch) Moss played a huge roll in the event as well.
I want to take this opportunity to update you on our
officers and changes:
First, we have a new Secretary Treasurer of the COC who is
FHMC Heavyweight. A very attentive and articulate individual, he has served
the COC in other capacities and really cares about the organization and its
We have a new Chaplin, Big Dog with Solders for Jesus, he is
a big hearted gentleman whom I have had experience with in the past, I attended
one of his meetings with his fellow brothers and Christians and was inspired as
to the roads they travel. Hospital
visits, prison ministry, etc., great man and group of guys.
We have a new Commander of the US Defenders for our region
and his name is Mel (Butch) Moss, whom you will get to know for sure. Mel and
the Sons of Liberty Riders RC research and distribute tons of important information
and have quickly become vital to our success as an organization. They are responsible for the video link
above. Mel and his brothers are great guys and they always put forth a great
Thankfully, we still have Suds representing COIR and Butterfly
handling the Safety and Awareness Program.
These two work hard for you, the COC and all the clubs in the DFW area.
They both are always involved in events or activities in the area. They have an
open door policy and are always making themselves available to all.
Little Jerry is still the West Side Commander and Iron Mike is
representing the East side, both of which do a great job. They have both served
a long time and are very knowledgeable of the organization and the mission.
Pac Man is our SA for the organization and I commend him on his
“Can do” approach and his “failure is not an option” attitude. Love the Patriot
I also want to recognize and thank Bandido Todd for his
continued unwavering support and input.
I am happy to have them all on a team representing Region 2. This is a great crew of assembled individuals
that voluntarily work hard for our region and are tireless in their efforts so
when you see them thank them personally for what they do. I am sure they would appreciate hearing it.
On another note, I want all to know that our home base for
the COC Meetings is at Diamond Jims, but my goal is to occasionally move the
meeting to various venues that have adequate space.
That being stated, I am announcing that the next TCOC&I
meeting for Region 2 will be held at the Scorpions MC Clubhouse on March 15,
2015, in Dallas. Please note this and all are welcome. Food and drink will be available for
East Side Ave
I want to remind everyone that we are continuing to collect
the COC Donations for 2015 and the Get Ur Done Rally 2015. Please bring your chapter donations to next meeting;
we want to have everyone current as soon as possible.
Also, we want to update your chapter contact information and
US Defender information appointees’ information, we will be working the tables
and signups will be handled prior to meeting. Get there early. Remember the TCOC&I is your organization and your participation
Love and respect to all,
Willie – Forsaken Horsemen MC
Chairman TCOC&I – Region 2
