New Florida Chapter
« on: December 11, 2013, 02:40:46 PM »
Greetings from Florida!

This post is to announce our intention to start a new chapter in Northeast Florida.  We are a group of riders from various cities in the Northeast part of the state who need another outlet for our addiction!  We are about 6 prospective members strong, but are interested in finding more like-minded members.  We plan on holding our first organizational/planning meeting sometime in January 2014, along with a practice session.

A couple of questions:
- Will we receive paperwork to formalize the chapter after this post?
- Will a folder/topic be created for Florida like the other states so that we may share posts?

Any words of wisdom or tips to help us get going are very welcome.

If you are interested in joining our chapter and would like to talk to me about it, feel free to email me at glenn.picklesimer@gmail.com.

Greetings Glenn & Carl and welcome to the wonderful world of Moto Gymkhana.

Please don't hesitate to ask any questions about getting started, what to do and how to do it as there is a wealth of knowledge here.

When the other 2 of you sign up, and your leader gets back in town?   ;D

So far, we've got an excellent core group of motorcyclist interested in starting a FL chapter.  These riders are more than just casual about riding and strive to take their skills to the next level never satisfied with, "good enough."  Of course, I suspect anybody who'd want to do Moto Gymkhana falls into that category by default anyhow.  I'm looking forward to much more and will be campaigning and recruiting more like I'm running for office! ;D

Welcome Florida guys.   I am sure you guys are aware but when recruiting, don't rule out any type bike or rider (as long as they can handle their motorcycle).   The recent Montevallo Meltdown in Alabama proved that dressers, sport bikes, dual sports, and standards ALL can excel and that all types of riders can benefit.

For a long time I avoided riding my Harley at the Gymkhana events and stuck with the lighter and more nimble dual sport.   I realized that all my riding would benefit from the exercises but that I ride the Harley on the street the most and now ALWAYS ride it at the events.   

Again, welcome and good luck on getting your chapter rolling.
