  1. This is What was sent to the Events Committee after one of the Events Committee reached out to offer support with their proposal!  Rick spoke to "other planners".  There were 3 other planners.  that agreed to have Rick to send this email.  This was the reply.

     

     

    I reached out to The 2 POCs and suggested they get some help from Tim, Vohn, Nick.

    I got an email tonight :

    "I have spoke to the other planners, we withdraw our bid to host the 2019 Meet.  Thanks your time to consider our proposal.  Good luck!
     
    Rick"
     
    This was received October 4, 2018

    Hbpete National Meet Chairperson 2019 until 12/31/2019 he will be replaced by the 2020 National Meet Chairman 

     

    I am the Chairman of the Events Committee and do not Vote unless there is a tie vote on the committee.  Also there is a standing Policy that if an event is held in the region you are in you cannot vote on and proposal from your region.  If there is a  tie vote and that event is in the Events Committee Chairmans region they can’t vote and it goes to the BOD to be  decided.

    I have posted anytime there is a vacancy on the committee to get new members.  It has been posted in the Clubhouse so any VMC member can step forward.  

    I will be waiting until the current election is over to post a request for members to join the Event Committee.  The guidelines limits the number of members to 8.

    The Vice President (Because that person over see the Events Committee) and the Treasurer (Because that person over see the VMC Budget) are members as well.

    You can find more information in the Events Committee Policy and Procedures.

     

    This information has never been a secret. The BOD has access to the Events Committee Forum and can see the members posts. If you are a Board member you can comment of the EC as well.  Board members are the Regional Reps. and elected members.

    Here is the latest Info regarding the 2012 National Meet.  Still no Budget outline.

     04-21-11

     

    To The Victory Motorcycle Club Events Committee. 

     

     The Great Plains Victory Riders with the support of other South Central local chapters respectfully submits this proposal to host the 2012 VMC National Rally in Hot Springs AR
     

    We would like to submit our proposal to hold the National VMC Rally in the South Central Region for 2012.  The South Central Region has been host to an annual rally (VITO) in Eureka Springs AR for the last 7 years and this event continues to grow.  We have also hosted the MITM BBQ during the V2V for what will be the 3rd year this June. We believe we are ready and look forward to hosting the 2012 National meet.
     
    The South Central Regions National Meet will be held in Hot Springs AR.  The proposed date is Labor Day weekend August 30,31, Sept 1,2

     

    Hot Springs offers many attractions as well as some of the best riding in the country in our opinions. We believe the location will allow members from all areas to attend. That coupled with a holiday weekend should provide conditions for maximum participation.

     

    One of our initial committee members (Rick Fortner) helped to bring the 2005 National to Eureka Springs AR. In addition another member (Doug Gulley) has put together national events for a car club he belongs to.

     

    We have a dealer in Hot Springs that has expressed great interest in being a part of this as well.

     

    We have been doing some preliminary research into hotels etc. but we need to get approval from this committee to move forward with any definite plans and reservations. It is our belief that with the area this is in and the fact it is a Holiday weekend we need to make this plans now and get a location reserved very soon.

     

    We will have a number of activities as well as several planned rides throughout the weekend.

     

    Once we have the approval of the committee we will immediately begin to get all of the plans and schedules confirmed 

     

    Thank you for your consideration.

  4. Thanks Mark.  I’ll let you know when I start the process.

     

    I’m hoping to get more responses to my call for members to  participate.  There are 13 or 14 legs that need to be covered.  This year the route goes from West to east.

  6. Hello VMC MEMBERS!

    The Events Committee is looking for support to hold the 2020 V2V!  We are asking for individuals to host legs f the Annual V2V. The Events Committee is waiting till the end of the Election process to start looking for people to get involved with the V2V Ride across the USA.  The Events Committee will be contacting all Regional Reps for support of the historic Event!  If you haven’t read about the V2V and why it was started please find that information and read about the history!  It is my opinion that even though this Ride was started to honor the WW1  soldiers I believe it should also be ridden to honor all the woman and men that served our country!  THIS EVENT TAKES PLACE BETWEEN JUNE21 to July 4th.  This event depends on VMC MEMBERS  participation!  

    If you are interested in supporting the V2V please post here to find out what you can do to support the V2V!

  8. The EC is welling to put together a list of year events, that isn’t a problem. You must understand that the EC doesn’t get all those date until a request has been received and approved.

    Also the EC has requested that after all event have been completed at review was requested that has not happened in most cases. Groups have not submitted those reviews!

     

    Also I have had contact from people angry about othe events conflicting with a long standing event. The EC DOES NOT DICTATE WHEN GROUPS HOLD THEIR EVENTS! That is up to them. If dates conflict people can make choices.

     

     

  9. The EC HAS NOT RECEIVED ANY PROPOSALS. ALL PROPOSALS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE SENT TO THE REGIONAL REPS. PROPOSALS CAN BE SENT TO THEM ANYTIME. THEN THE REPS CAN SUBMIT REQEST AS SOON AS THE BUDGET IS APPROVED.

     

    THE ONLY ISSUE IS WHEN THE EVENTS BUDGET IS APRROVED AND ALLOCATION OF FUNDING IS DETERMINED AFTER BOD APPROVAL.

     

    THERE IS A DRASTIC REDUCTION OF FUNDS SO ALLOCATIONS WILL BE MUCH LOWER.

     

    WE NEED TO BUILD THE MEMBERSHIP TO INCREASE FUNDING SUPPORT OF EVENTS.

     

     

     

     

  10. here is a list on events that the EC has funded or is in the process of funding.

    this includes the National and the V2V.

    to date no request have been submitted from any other region
