There are friends and times that at the time were considered endless. While the feelings are there in the present, the depth of those feelings and presumed brotherhood, get rather foggy.
Yesterday I took a run with our are President Ricky, to Vernal Utah to take a big payloader there.
We got there, and had to haul the big mammoth ma chine on the back of a truck that while trying real hard was not being acclimated to the task.
Going going to and on our trip home Rick and I talked about many things , including of course the club.
His view of things, is the same thing that I felt in 2008, and why the club regrouped under the Knytes-of-Anarchy rather than the Hazzard County Knytes. Like the TV show that as one half of the clubs core foundation, Hazzard County in fact much of DOH, has little fuel in it any more. While the fan base is still there, even given the fact that the larger club’ President is Ben Jones, the question is, when was the last time the Hazzard Knytes ever gotten a check, from the national organization ? In 2008 we regrouped with the ideas of what the other half of the Hazzard Knytes was based on, a real custom big truck 10,000 GVW and heavier commercial truck custom/classic group. With the basic tag being truckers are bikers with more wheels and steel.
So Rick and I talked. His attitude towards the club are in my mind on two fronts, excommunicate Rick as a member as well as maybe its time to flat consider that the Twin Falls area charter would be best denounced and re-establish the Charter in either Pocatello or Idaho Falls, or at least beef up those two sub charters.
Some of what Rick said yesterday makes sense. Lets face it, many of our projects have come to dead ends, not winners. Aside from the radio station project, the bars, Pin Up Calendar, Videos etc, are projects that if done by anyone else might get off the ground. But not us or at least done by us.
So what do you do? Quit? Maybe but only partly.
Yesterday, going up to Vernal, I took special mental notes of a whole new bunch of territories. Many of which we just barely touched on, and many never before explored.
Now then the Utah promise is no longer a maybe if idea, but a definite lets get the Wolf-Pack up and ready and get out of here.
Now the Knytes itself will live on and prosper , but I don’t see it in western Idaho. But there is the Idea of rolling the Knytes and the AyreWolvez into one organization, and focus on vintage and classic military warbird aircraft, tbka (to-be-known-as) the AyreKnytes Aviation Association. Base the club in Utah and extend packs rather than charters as needed or that demonstrate the need and want of a pack.
Finally I’m pulling all the invites and ads for area help from all listings, retaining those we have , but no more. More over re-interviewing those that are already hired , and finding those that want to remain as well as those that are just kicking the tires.
I did extend the final deadline for Mandy until Tuesday since I was gone all day Friday on the run to Vernal, Utah, but beyond Tuesday, no show its going to have to be a it was nice, glad to know ya, see you around the galaxy.
