Chapter Couple of the Year Chat
We were very happy to have been T2’s 2014 Chapter
Couple. It was the second time around for us and we felt
very honored that the Chapter would single us out again
to bestow this honor. We enjoy greeting new and current
members to our gatherings. Over the years we’ve met a
lot of great people!! We need to select a couple for 2015.
Four Couples from Ohio vied for the 2015 District Couple
of the Year at Cabin Fever. All four were great candidates
but Chuck & Melanie Geggie of Chapter E-2 (Cincinnati)
came out on top. They will make a great Couple and will
represent our District fantastically.
Gary & Carol Meyerholtz were selected as Region D Couple of the Year in Kendallville, IN at the Region D Rally. All
three couples did a fantastic job during their presentations.
John & Dee Ayers made Ohio Proud. Gary & Carol were
the Indiana District Couple of the Year and will represent
our Region well at Wing Ding 37 in September. To find

FBI Admits All Registered Motorcycle Owners Are On Classified Gang List
Rich-Joseph Facun / AP Images for Harley Davidson
MSNBC correspondent Jeremy Lancaster sat down with government official Darrin Cornia to discuss recent rumors
that have been in circulation in regard to registered motorcycle owners being placed on a classified FBI gang list.
Darrin Cornia who currently holds a position within the National Security Branch of the government agreed to complete
transparency prior to the interview with MSNBC’s Jeremy Lancaster and did remain direct and seemingly forthright
throughout his conversation with Lancaster.
After a few moments of introduction, Lancaster bluntly asked the following question,” Mr. Cornia, if I were to make the
statement, all registered motorcycle owners are currently showing on a classified FBI gang list, would the statement be
true or false?
Cornia responded by saying, “That would be a true statement, the FBI has been collecting and compiling Department of
Motor Vehicles and Drivers License Division records for the purpose of adding those that own motorcycles to a
classified gang list since 1994.
Lancaster asked Cornia to explain the reasoning behind the list which seems inappropriately broad, to Cornia answered
the question with the following statement, “It’s nothing more than collecting and utilizing data. We may not like to

Lancaster asked Cornia to explain the reasoning behind the list which seems inappropriately broad, to Cornia
answered the question with the following statement, “It’s nothing more than collecting and utilizing data. We
may not like to admit it, but the truth of the matter is that those that own and operate motorcycles are 67%
more likely to be involved in illegal or criminal activity than those that do not own or operate a motorcycle.”
The National Security Official went on to explain, “It’s the same as firearms, if local P.D or Highway Patrol
were to pull someone over that is a registered firearm owner, that officer has the right to know this information
going into the interaction, the same could be said about a local P.D or Highway Patrol Officer that pulled over
a registered motorcycle owner, the situations are honestly interchangeable in the eyes of National and
Homeland Security.
MSNBC correspondent Jeremy Lancaster asked Cornia if placing citizens on a gang list just because they are
registered motorcycle owners is considered as profiling, Cornia responded to the question by saying, “as a
nation do we complain when we add someone that has a Crips or Bloods tattoo to a gang list even though the
individual swears up and down that they don’t have gang affiliation? Again these are 2 situations that are
interchangeable, we can’t pick and choose.”
Lancaster asked how individuals can find out if they are on this classified gang list to which Cornia responded,
“Did you register a motorcycle or obtain a Class M license anytime between the year 1994 and 2015? If so,
than you are on the list.”
The MSNBC correspondent concluded the interview by asking Cornia, “aside from potential profiling from
law enforcement, are there potentially any additional consequences of being on this gang list?” Cornia
responded by saying, “the purpose of the list is to collect and utilize data, not to create consequences. Aside
from notifying law enforcement that you are a registered motorcycle owner or operator, it can show up to
potential employers on select background checks.”

Membership Enhancement
WOW! Here it is April already. Where has 2015 gone? It's
been a busy year, and April promises to continue that trend.
Along with welcoming spring & the promise of warmer
weather & riding more, we will also celebrate Easter, Good
Friday and April Fool’s Day! We will once again begin our T2
Tuesday rides and we have two Thursday dinner rides this
month which someone else will explain elsewhere in the newsletter.
Several T2 members signed up for the ARC in Wilmington on Saturday the 11th
in preparation for the riding season and to hone the skills needed for a successful riding season.
Since Karen is still limited on her traveling skills, I attended the Spring Officer's meeting in Canfield without her and got a view of the Fairgrounds Buckeye Rally Site. I also attended the OH B-3 Seminar Blitz
and was advised that I'm suffering from GAS! In fact, the entire room was!! Ask Margaret Moore about
that.
Time to wrap it up for another month, but remember to get your New Member Recruiting Kits in order
and in your bikes, ready to give out whenever the situation presents itself. Also, check your GWRRA
card expiration date. We want to keep everyone current so we can continue to have fun!

We attended the District Spring Officers Meeting last month
with John & Karen Wissinger and Louie Schatzberg. The
meeting was held in one of the buildings we will be using at the
2015 Buckeye Rally in June. We were able to take a tour of
the grounds to check the layout. It appears to be a well kept
facility with plenty of room to accommodate us all. They
boast of having a very large area for camping. Linda & I stayed
at the Comfort Inn in Austintown and right next door someone has remodeled a Hotel building and it’s called Hotel California. It hasn’t opened yet for business but should in the next
few weeks. They had quite a few artificial (plastic I assume)
palm trees throughout the parking lot. Based on some things I
saw it is going to be a high-priced Hotel with all kinds of
rooms. There is a Hollywood Casino in Austintown, maybe
some Rally goers may try their luck there. If they stay at the
new Hotel will they ever leave?

THE YEAR
On March 19th, T2 had another fund raiser at the Waffle
House in Vandalia. We had a good turn-out but probably not
as many attendees as we had back in January, but we still were
able to add to our funds. We plan to have one more Waffle
House Spirit Night Fund raiser this year in October. The
Waffle House makes it easy for us to raise money for our
chapter and we thank you for helping us out. Chapter F has a
Spirit Night Fund raiser scheduled for April 15th at the Waffle
House across from The Greene. Please plan on going there.
We need to support them as they did us.

Starting with our May Gathering we have changed the start
time for our gatherings to 7pm. We discussed this at one of
our previous Team meetings and at our last Team Meeting we
decided to implement the earlier start times starting with May.
In April our T2 Tuesday rides start back up again with the first
one on April 14th. They are held on the
second, the fourth and fifth Tuesdays of
the month through October 27th. We
have added a new twist to the T2 Tuesday Rides. This year on the fourth Tuesday of the month we also have an evening
T2 Tuesday Ride.

Hi everyone,
Well I’m up moving around a lot better than I thought I
would be. The doctor is very pleased with my progress
and so am I. The first thing I’m going to do once he gives
me the final release is try to get on the bike. I sure hope
the weather co-operates so that maybe when I get on the
bike I will be able to go for a short ride. Well there’s not a
whole more going on. I’m looking forward to seeing all of
you at the meeting. Here is your recipe for the month.
ORIENTAL SALAD
Ingredients
2 large bundles of napa cabbage
6 green onions (sliced with some green)
2 pkgs of chicken flavored Raman noodles (discard
flavor packet)
1 small pkg of sliced almonds
1/4 to 1/2 cup of sesame seeds (small container is
enough)
1 stick of butter
chop cabbage
(I only use about 1/2 of the bunch until it gets
down to where there is not as much leaves)
toast sliced almonds, sesame seeds and crushed
ramen noodles in the stick of butterchop cabbage
(I only use about ½ of the bunch until it gets down
to where there is not as much leaves)

DRESSING: 1 cup of cooking oil
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
1 cup sugar

time to coat but not drench.}
Till next time,
