February Meeting Recap!

At our last meeting we had a potluck dinner before the start and everyone enjoyed it so much that we have decided to continue having potlucks! Yay!! It is totally understandable if work/life prevents you from contributing to the potluck. However, last Tuesday we had PLENTY of food so come eat and enjoy time with friends. For those who can contribute, we appreciate you!

Old Business:

  • The First Responders dinner has been postponed until later in the year (more information to come).

Any members who are interested in helping put together this run or any upcoming event, your help and support is greatly appreciated. I will try to let you all know what officers and/or members are heading committees so you know who to contact when you want to help! This year Morrison will be the first stop and at this time they are planning a pancake breakfast again. Yay! Red Rock at this time is planning to have a dinner that evening. Yay! (More information to come and information is always subject to change).

January Meeting Recap, Prep for Feb!

Everywhere you look there is a meeting recap! I want everyone to have one…but I will be super brief here since this may well be the 3rd time you have seen this! Sorry not sorry!

As part of my 2018 Historian Plan, I want to post meeting recaps for individuals and members who are not able to attend the meetings but would still like to know what’s going on and participate in NCIB events.

-NCIB T-Shirts (have I told you all they make great gifts 🙂 ) are available for $10 per shirt. Check out Noble County Independent Bikers Facebook page to find the past post that contains sizes. We will not work on designing 2018 shirts until 2017 shirts are gone!

-Make way for fellowship! We have determined that last year was a bit exhaustive, so we have opted to focus on a little more fellowship and a little less on event planning. We want the group to get together and do more fun stuff and just enjoy riding. We are still planning to do our annual events: Springfest, 16th Celebration, Halloween, Christmas Parade, FOP Poker Run and the Noble County Public School Poker Run. We are potentially still planning on doing the First Responder Dinner later in the year.

-We are still planning on helping Camp Tandako with their summer mowing and Fall/Halloween carnival.

-We made a motion to have 1 Wheels Night this year in conjunction with a Pool and Dart Tournament at Ace’s High Bar (306 N. 6th Street, Perry, OK) on Saturday, June 16. The motion passed.

-There was a discussion to attend a Blessing of the Bikes or host a Blessing of the Bikes in the near future. More details to come.

-There was a motion made to move meetings from the 3rd Monday of the month to the 1st Tuesday of the month. This motion passed, so I look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday, Feb. 6 at 6:00 p.m. (if you would like to engage in potluck activities) or 7:00 p.m. for the meeting at the DAWG House (1218 1/2 Rainbow Drive, Perry, OK).

Upcoming Event:

It looks like President Steve Bay will be attending the Polar Bear Run this Saturday, Jan. 27. If you would like to accompany him, he is leaving the DAWG House at 9:45 a.m.

See you all in February! Love will most certainly be in the air and as always RIDE and Be Safe! PolarBearRun

 

What a Christmas Party it was!

Hi everyone! It is your favorite NCIB officer….haha, j/k, but for real. 😉 The NCIB Christmas Party was this past Saturday at the DAWG House and the new officers were voted in. For those of you who were unable to attend, or just like to follow our news and events from different areas of the interweb, I will reveal the new 2018 officers below.

But first, lets take a moment to thank our 2017 officers for the terrific job that they did for us this past year. I recently did an interview with BorntoRoamBikers.com for their newsletter, so I calculated our Poker Run earnings. These officers assisted in helping this membership plan events to raise a rough estimate of more than $5,500. This does not include money raised through different fundraising events and activities, wheels nights or bug runs. I should get a more accurate number on the total money raised this year during our transitional officer meeting after the first of the year, which I am sure the new Treasurer will be more than happy to share. So, thank you outgoing 2017 officers! We appreciate you!

President:Steve Bay, Vice-President: Raymond Reub, Treasurer: Kristy McKisson, Secretary: Paula Fish, Sargent At Arms: Don Matney, Road Captain: Kenny McKisson, Spirit Wear: Mike Hayes, Historian: Dakota Keith and Chaplain: Chad Webb

We are so excited to begin a new year and I will have to get a 2018 Officer picture to reflect that excitement. I have some NEW New Years Resolutions (see what I did there.) so, we are going to begin email blasting away again and I am gonna try to host an after meeting questionnaire on Facebook for members who can’t regularly attend meetings. We are going to try our best to keep you updated, utilize your idealistic minds and raise funds for those in need.

Our first membership meeting of 2018 will be Monday, January 15 at the DAWG House @ 7 p.m. 1218.5 Rainbow Drive, Perry, OK 73077. We hope to see you all there!!

HAPPY REST OF THE HOLIDAYS EVERYONE! Ride and be safe!

June-August Fall’s Coming!

So, the next chapter that comes after May!

We have hosted two poker runs since the last time I was able to update the site.

The first was John Vasek’s poker run that was hosted June 10. We raised around $1,200 for John! Yay!

The second run was the Noble County Public Schools Run. It was so much fun and we had a great turn out and wonderful food provided by each school! We raised around $1,228 that was used to purchase school supplies and load gift cards so that teachers could purchase additional supplies throughout the year. These supplies and gift cards will be divided evenly between Perry, Morrison, Billings and Red Rock schools this month.

The last of the old news is that we hosted a garage sale at the Dawg House on August 11-12. We raised enough money at the garage sale to pay off our tax dues! We are now 100% officially a charitable organization and we are debt free!

In my personal bit of old news, I had a WONDERFUL and much needed vacation after all that moving in May. Aaaawwwww….vacations!

Upcoming Events to look out for!

This Friday, August 26 we will have a potluck Wheel’s Night at Ace’s High Bar in Perry, OK. Address: 306 N. 6th Street, Perry, OK 73077. Sign up sheet for food is currently circulating Facebook!

September 16, N.C.I.B will ride in the 16th Celebration parade in Perry. Details will continue to be posted as we get them. We will not have a booth this year.

DATE CHANGE:

September 23 was marked as a potential membership trip. Since we have a bike night September 22, we have moved that potential membership trip to Saturday, September 30. As the time nears, we will do a poll to see who would like to attend the trip and where you would like to go.

Gallery and calendar is updated here and I have added the photos on Facebook as well!

Football season is nearing, I can’t believe our summer is nearing an end.
