A Word from our Supply Officer
Greetings, Ladies.

Supply Store will be CLOSED June 13-July 29. Much to do pre- and post-Convention.





 
Last Minute Convention Checks
Please pass this information on to your fellow members-

We currently have 30+ members listed as someone's room mate--but they have not registered for convention as of yet. For anyone with a room mate, please check with them to make sure they are:
1) Still planning on attending convention--since this could  could impact your plans holding the room reservation in your name, type of room you need,  travel plans, etc.
2) Encourage your room mate(s) who have not registered for convention they should do so as soon as their plans are firmed up.
3) Remind your room mates, that there is a $15.00 late fee for anyone who registers after June 1st.
4)  On-line/ call in....Registration closes on June 15th. If someone decides to attend convention after this date, they must register for convention as a "walk in" with no guarantees of banquet meals being available, and the chance no convention t-shirts, patches , etc will be available as a walk in  registrant. 

If your room mate has not received a link from Federal Conference they need to check if their dues are current through the month of July-2018. For anyone who does not have email, they can call in their reservation to Federal Conference using the registration form available in the March Advisory. 

As always, if you have any questions about the registration process please do not hesitate to ask.


 
Welcome to Motor Maids!

To get a feel for the importance of tradition and history you need to look back in time at some of the challenges ladies before us had to overcome.

In 1916, just before the US entered WWI, sisters Augusta (Gussie, age 24) and Adeline (Addie, age 22) Van Buren wanted to prove women could serve as military dispatchers.  They rode 5,500 miles in 60 days on motorcycles equipped with gas headlights.  Crossing the continental US each on their own bike, wearing military style leggings and leather riding breeches they were arrested numerous times, not for speeding but for wearing men’s clothes.

In 1937 Sally Robinson is an 88 pound, 4’11” tall 27 year old resident of Washington that has been riding since 1928 and wanted to get her motorcycle license.  After taking the written test twice with scores of 80 and 92, she must bring her lawyer in order to get the opportunity to take the riding portion.  Upon completion the examiner announced “Lady, you handle it as well as any man could” but because he had not seen her kick it over, he would not give her the permit.  An article written in the Washington post went on to say that Miss Robinson was embarrassed to admit that she had “cussed him out” but left with her permit in hand.

The year is 1940.  After an extensive search, Linda Dugeau and Dot Robinson compiled a list of 51 female riders that would make up the Motor Maids Charter membership.  In 1941 the American Motorcycle Association issues Charter #509 to the club.

Today, 76 years later, the Motor Maids, are one of the oldest continuously operated Women’s Motorcycling Organization in North America.  Joining the Motor Maids will enlarge the 1,300+ membership that is a diverse group with a passion for riding, promoting safe riding habits and showing the world a positive image of ladies on motorcycles.

Here are links to a copy of our Constitution and By-Laws (Membership votes on & follows these By-Laws.  Be sure to read EVERYTHING and a link to our latest edition of the MM Handbook so that you can check us out and determine if we are a group that you would like to join.   Check out our National Officers and your District Director on the Contact Us tab.  We look forward to getting to know you.
