5 New Jersey Checks in Rocktoberfest Scores $10,000+ for Florida Child David's Dream and Believe Cancer Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that raises funds to provide financial assistance and services to families primarily in New Jersey affected by a cancer diagnosis. On September 21, The Beach Haven Moose Riders 1575 of Manahawkin, NJ, held their 2nd annual Rocktoberfest benefiting their adopted charity and friends, The David's Dream and Believe Cancer Foundation of Manahawkin, NJ, with authentic German food prepared by Rider Chef Keith Lippmann and crew. Menu consisted of sauerbraten, spaetzel, bratwurst, potato pancakes and of course Octoberfest flavored beer. September along the Jersey Shore is the time of year when the locals unwind from a busy summer season. But the Riders and the locals were not resting when it came to a good cause. In the wake of Superstorm Sandy, where residents and businesses are still trying to get back to some sense of norm, the community reached deep in their pockets on a gorgeous blue skies, low 70s, last day of summer, and contributed to a worthwhile cause. A few weeks prior to the benefit, David Caldarella, Founder of the Foundation, announced that the monies raised will go to Moose 1575 member Ben Scola's nephew Petey, an 11 year old from Fort Lauderdale, FL, who is battling Stage 4 Neuroblastoma. This is Petey's fifth occurrence in five years. After entertainment by local bands, Ryan Zimmerman and BuckQ2 had finished, the Riders raised over $10,000. The money was raised through the sale of approximately 250 tickets, silent auction, tricky trays and 50/50, with the winnerdonating winnings back to Petey. When the Riders announced the amount raised that will be presented to Photo: standing center right is Dave Caldarella, Founder of David's Dream and Believe Cancer Foundation.

Events Chairman: Domnick Nardo standing to left of Ben (with doo rag and glasses)... David's Foundation, with tears in his eyes, David announced his foundation will be donating an additional $2,500, for a total donation close to $13,000. Ben Scola, fighting back tears, was only able to choke out the words "Thank you", leaving not a dry eye in the house. The Riders have many people to thank for such a successful day, the volunteers, Beach Haven Moose 1575, local businesses donating over $10,000 in gifts and products for the silent auctions and tricky trays. Food and beverages donated by US Foods, Shop Rite and Warren and Point Pleasant Distributors and of course The David's Dream and Believe Cancer Foundation, that gives us the inspiration do to something more on a Sunday than riding in circles...any questions give me a call Thanks Mike Da Nurse - Riders Secretary 5

6 Reflecting on the Past 100 Years What Would James J. Davis Think? It was the end of July and heading in from Interstate 88 I was getting the same feeling I always get. As I drove north on Lincoln Highway, I saw the carnival rides set up in the parking lot next to the Field House. That same feeling of excitement intensified immediately. Turning towards the gatehouse I was suddenly aware of the enormity of the weekend ahead of me. 100 years that s a lot of history. It made me think. Did James J. Davis have any idea what the result of what he was creating back then would be? Did he think that 100 years in the future members would be arriving from all over America, Canada and the UK to pay homage and join in the festivities of this momentous occasion? Did he have any idea that the youngest Director General since himself would be walking around the sport track alongside staff and volunteers raising even more money for the Fraternity? Did he have any idea that the FBMA State Board would fly into Mooseheart, wearing golf shirts and shorts on the coldest weekend in July in 29 years? Did he have an inkling that so many of the alumni would have travelled so far just to say thank you in their own special way? Did he have a vision of what indeed the campus would look like in 100 years? Did he have any idea of how important the Women of the Moose would become by following in the footsteps of his own mother, and their amazing ability to raise vast amounts of money and doing it so quickly. Did he have any idea of the hordes of motorcyclists who would adopt his adventurous spirit, and would raise hundreds of thousands of dollars whilst doing just what they love to do, but with one sole objective? None of us will be here in 2113 in body, but I know all of us will be there in spirit and I wonder who we will be standing next to. Did James J. Davis think of that? I think as he stands there on campus, he does and will for another 100 years. We should be proud of ourselves and know that the spirit of James J. Davis is alive and that he would be proud to stand next to any of us. A Man with a Vision If James J. Davis were around today, I would think he would honestly answer No to these questions. But I know he would thank each and every one of us who has been fortunate to call him- or herself members of this great Fraternity and for bringing the Loyal Order of Moose this far. I know he would be wishing for another 100 years as we all do. Charlie Titheridge, Chairman Florida Bermuda Moose Association Historical Committee 6 James J. Davis who later would serve as Secretary of Labor to three Presidents, then 14 years in the U.S. Senate agreed late in 1906 to take on the job of recruiting members into the then -faltering Moose organization, on the basis of eventually using members pooled resources to create a home and school where dependent widows of Moose members could take their children. Within five years by late 1911 the organization had grown to membership of nearly 200,000, and Davis, now carrying the title Director General, recommended that Moose leaders begin seeking the right parcel of real estate to set about establishing the so-called Moose Institute....During these meetings..., the leaders decided that the home and school should be located somewhere near the center of North American population, preferably adjacent to both rail transportation and a river, with fertile soil for farming, and within a day s transportation to and from a major city... on Dec. 14, 1912, the leaders decided to purchase a 750-acre dairy operation known as Brookline Farm (near the western bank of the Fox River and two rail lines, 40 miles west of Chicago... 1,023 acres in total...negotiations with all parties took place in January and February 1913, and legal possession taken March 1. At that point, the place already had a name: a Feb. 1 joint meeting of the Supreme Council and Institute Trustees unanimously approved Congressman John J. Lentz s proposal to name the new home and school Mooseheart.

11 Unpredictable weather doesn't stop Palmyra Lodge Hosts Blue Star Mothers Poker Run What have the Palmyra MooseRiders been up to this summer? The summer weather has been very changeable this year; riding in nice weather has not been easy. But we are still out there making our presence known in the community. In June: We had our 5 th annual poker run in memory of our fallen brothers and sisters. The weather was beautiful and the turnout was even better. We had a chicken BBQ, biker games, Chinese auction and a band called: Jelly Finger that rocked the pavilion all night long. A portion of the money raised from the poker run was donated to the Make a Wish Foundation at our August meeting. The remaining money will be donated throughout the community this year. We are MooseRiders this is what we do In July: the Moose Riders took to the Kings Drag strip in South Butler, NY. It was a blast and everyone had a good time. Our Public Relations person Clarky raced his vintage 1949 EL panhead and took top honors in the vintage class. In August: The Lodge hosted the first ever Blue Star Mothers poker run. This was in memory SFC Daniel Metcalfe (Palmyra Moose Rider Dawn Leberth s son.) Our family and friends are never forgotten It was great poker run for a great cause, just a long enough ride for everyone to start getting real hungry and conveniently the Blue Star Mothers put on a feast. (Wow was there a lot of food.) Also in August we hosted the Patriot Guard Wounded War- rior Ride. The Palmyra Moose Riders and the Patriot Guard are longtime supporters of each other. It was another huge turnout that supported a great cause. In September: The cold weather has set in: we are taking advantage of nice days when we can and hitting the road. We plan to attend the poker run for the Cancer for Kids Foundation later in September. It s all about the children!!!!!! In October: We have once again planned our end of the year party during Columbus weekend at a local campground. It has been another great year for the Palmyra Moose Riders.

12 Ronald McDonald House Benefits from Fundraising Efforts Mississippi Riders Deliver 530 lbs of Pull Tabs Our Activity Group took a pleasant ride to Mobile, AL. We delivered 530 lbs of aluminum pull tabs to the Ronald McDonald House. The ones that went for their first time had a tour of the Ronald McDonald House. They were impressed with what they do for the kids and their parents. Everyone volunteers their time for the cause. I am proud to be with a group of people that takes time out to help kids and their parents. I would like to thank IRIS BELLAIS and the kids at North Woolmarket School and BARBARA HOSLI and the kids at Saucier School, These kids and parents turned in the most tabs, as well as the motorcycle group working together to get the tally up.

13 Marion, NC, Moose Riders Make it to Blessing Sweet Carolina Good Times Never Felt So Good Marion Moose Riders Group (NC) was formed in 2008, but we have been a committee for the Lodge since We just completed our 9th annual bike show with great success. Most of our proceeds for our bike show goes to our Needy Kids Christmas fund for McDowell County. The first 3 years of the bike show event we moved it around on dates and the past 6 years we have had it Labor Day weekend. We make it a whole weekend event for our Moose Riders Group. We are located in Marion, North Carolina, on the banks of Lake James and surrounded Presenting a laptop at St. Charles Lodge in Illinois by a campground. We often do fundraisers such as Golf Cart Poker Runs and include the whole Lodge family. These are usually good fundraisers for us. This year our fundraisers included a Polar Plunge with proceeds going to the Moose- Heart Renovation project for which we raised $ We had a Blessing of the Bikes Poker Run and took the proceeds, $461.00, of that fundraiser with us when several of our members went to Mooseheart to the Blessing of the Bikes. We had a Golf Cart Poker Run for a local Autism Riding Farm and raised $ We had another Golf Cart Poker Run for the L.I.F.E program and were able to donate $ so the program will be able to buy 2 laptops for the graduating Seniors.

14 Sun and Fun and Moose Riders for Moose Seniors Motorcycle Madness Once Again at Moosehaven This is a busy time for Moosehaven with a chili cook off and the huge Halloween trick or treat festivities coming up. If you are in the area, stop by. Editor Mother Nature was decked out in her finest on Saturday, September 7 th, her sun shining brightly on the grounds of Moosehaven following weeks and weeks of incessant rain. She sure knows when to show her best side. It was a busy day at Moosehaven, starting with a Community Breakfast and an afternoon of District Sports. Add to that the designation of Motorcycle Day and you have non-stop activities and fun for visitors and residents. There were lots of motorcycles present including Moose Riders from the surrounding area, including Mandarin Moose Riders and a bunch of folk who rode up from West Volusia and Halifax (Daytona Area) to join in the fun. As always, residents lined up to hop aboard a motorcycle for the campus Parade, this year a much longer ride circling the campus several times with residents and riders alike waving furiously at onlookers in front of the Life Care Center and other residences. Following the parade there was a signature Moosehaven picnic with hot dogs, hamburgers, beans, slaw, fixins, pans and pans of banana pudding and adult and non-adult beverages available. Picnic tables provided the hungry riders and residents a chance to sit down and enjoy the DJ playing oldies, some of which were way too familiar to the nonresidents. More residents continued to show up for the picnic and it was a great opportunity to catch up with our Moosehaven friends. 14

16 Ohio Riders enjoy a busy summer Circleville to Enter Float at October Pumpkin Show The Circleville Moose Riders held their 2nd annual memorial benefit in honor of fallen member Mike Forrest on Saturday, July 20th. Despite the rain and ongoing threats of thunderstorms, 70 plus motorcycle riders and passengers participated in the poker run. Once again our small community came through for us by donating items for the Chinese Auction. In addition to funds raised from 50/50 raffles, we exceeded last year s amount by $ making a grand total of $4, All proceeds were donated to one of our charities embedded deep in our hearts, "A New Leaf Inc.", Pickaway County's foster child care facility. The OSMA Convention was held August 15th - 18th and was well represented by the Circleville Moose Fraternity. The sessions proved to be quite informational and, as in the past, Friday night's corn hole tournament drew many competitors as well as spectators. We had a gorgeous weekend for our 14th annual Biker Bash on August 23rd & 24th and once again it was a huge hit! Over 90 bikes and 130 plus sign-ups participated in the poker run, and to no one's surprise, everyone had a blast participating in the bike games and later just relaxing and enjoying the camaraderie of all our brethren and sisters. It was truly a great weekend for all! We're headed into the months of September and October with a full calendar. Members of the "Spokes For Folks" and the "Booze Fighters" will be joining the Circleville Moose Riders Stumbo Memorial Run in holding the "Vet Fest" the weekend of September 21st & 22nd. This event will mirror our annual Biker Bash and will surely attract numerous biker enthusiasts from all over the State. All proceeds will be donated to the Veterans in our County (Pickaway) and our neighboring Ross County. As we go forward into the fall, we still have several months left of the 2013 riding season. Two popular poker runs for the Circleville Moose Riders are the annual "Covered Bridge Run" on October 5th and the "Leaf Run" on October 20th. Many motorcycle enthusiasts from all over the State are drawn to these two events to witness the beauties that are still in existence in our State. The Pumpkin Show, which is nationally known as the "Greatest Free Show on Earth", begins October 16th thru the 19th. Circleville Moose Riders will be entering a float in the parades again this year which is always a great opportunity to educate the community of what the Moose Fraternity is all about. We had the opportunity to share this memorable occasion with several "out of towners" who rode through the parades with us last year and are looking forward to their return. We extend an open invitation to all and keep in mind that the Circleville Lodge has electric hook-ups to accommodate all of you camper enthusiasts and for those who prefer a more luxurious stay, there are several hotels located within a mile of the Lodge. The months of November and December mark the end of another successful year for the Circleville Moose Riders. And, with the holidays approaching, everyone's focus will be on lots of good food and family celebrations. The annual Christmas party will be on December 14th and makes for a great opportunity for all Moose Riders who have supported, volunteered and shared the fun and laughter throughout the year and reminisce the "fruits of our labor". For those warm blooded souls, the new year will begin with the annual "Polar Bear" run on January 1st. BRRRRRRR! Happy Holidays to all and ride safe, Sally Henkle, Public Relations Circleville Moose Riders CHECK US OUT!!!!! 16

20 Copperas Cover Riders Deployed Riders Enjoy Labor Day Run thru Texas Hill Country The Texas Hill Country is a motorcycle mecca filled with hundreds of miles of spectacular riding roads and it is the heart of the Edwards Plateau Region, located in southwest Texas. Its 'Crown Jewel' is the Three Sisters roads. Smalls towns dot the area just enough to offer the perfect balance between civilization and isolation. This 'land of 1100 springs' feeds 4 crystal-clear rivers (Medina, Sabinal, Frio, and Nueces) that snake thru canyons creating its diverse and unique landscape. Limestone bluffs, boulders the size of a house, and waterfalls are common sights if you decide to stop for a summer swim to cool off along your ride. Foilage colors are explosive in the Spring and Fall from Uvalde Bigtooth Maple, Pecan, Texas Red Oak, and Black Walnut, Bald Cypress, and Texas purple sage. Wildlife includes whitetail deer, axis, wild hog, audad, and countless exotics. aboutthreesisters.html Three Sisters Ride On Saturday, August 31st, nine MRC2 members set out for Hill Country and the Three Sisters in Texas. Three Sisters is a group of Texas Highways (Hwy 335, 336, 337) sprawling through Fredricksburg, Kerrville, Vanderpool, Leakey, and Camp Wood. Three Sisters is roughly a 95-mile loop around some of the most spectacular sights the State of Texas has to offer. After settling in, they traveled Hwy 337 to the Lone Star Museum in Vanderpool and relished in original bikes from the early 1900's. During the Labor Day weekend trip, MRC2 had six bikes, with nine participants, and covering approximately 605 miles round-trip. Serving those who Serve When not putting two wheels to the pavement, MRC2 members have been called to provide overseas support during our nation s conflicts. Robert McIntire (President) and Bill Nicolaus deployed to Afghanistan while Ed Guzman (Road Captain) deployed to Kuwait. The MRC2 welcomed Stacey Stack Hanko as he returned home to the USA on August 18. Dave McPhail C2 Moose Riders 20

We took the back roads all the way down there stopping once at a gas station to shed some jackets and draw a card. We continued on and it was quite hot going through Fort Hunter Liggett. Once we arrived at the Lodge we had some refreshments and drew another card. One couple on a bike had to head home as we decided to go to the coast and back up through Cambria, Big Sur and back to the lodge. We headed towards the coast and reached natural air conditioning (also known as coastal fog). It was a beautiful ride up Highway 1 to Big Sur where we stopped for dinner at the River s Inn, had some refreshments and drew our last cards. I ended up winning High Hand with two pairs and won the pot of $50. We all headed back to the Lodge and home. This short poker run ended up being a total of 300 miles from home to home, what a great day. We spearheaded the Golden Spot 15 Moose Legion Poker Run Fundraiser on August 18 th. Our Moose Legion has 5 Lodges, so it made sense that each Lodge would be a checkpoint for the poker hand. Everyone started at their home Lodge in the morning, visited all the other lodges in the Moose Legion Jurisdiction and met at the Santa Cruz Lodge for a BBQ Dinner and Awards. We had great participation from the Monterey Moose Riders (including a couple that rode 120 miles from Fresno to ride with us). It was another great day for riding and totaled around 275 miles. We raised a fair amount for the Moose Legion and had a great time. On September 13 th we sponsored a Comedy Show/Dinner at the Lodge. It was a great time for all that attended. Our next projects are a Weekend Fundraiser for Safe Surfin Foundation. We have Erik Estrada and Jason Campbell coming to Monterey. We have a showing of Finding Faith at the Golden State Theatre in Downtown Monterey on Saturday the 19 th along with a VIP experience with Erik Estrada after the showing, followed by a separate Meet-n-Greet/Dinner at our Lodge at 6:30PM with local Chief of Police, Sheriff, CHP to learn about the Cop-in-a- Box program as well as Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. On Sunday the 20 th, we have a stage and entire section of the Northridge Mall in Salinas for a community outreach event and fundraiser from 3PM to 6PM for Safe Surfin with VIP experience, movie trailer, Erik talking to the crowd. I am hoping to raise a substantial amount for Safe Surfin on this weekend. In November, we have fundraising breakfasts with the Everett Alvarez High School Interact Club and in December a fundraising breakfast with the Monterey High School Music Boosters, which will include a Sunday morning concert (Jazz Band, Choir and String Ensemble). We have been busy and having a great time. Fraternally, Derrick Morris Monterey CA 876 Moose Riders President 23

24 Bingo brings in some bucks for North Florida Moose Riders Mandarin Riders Have Got it Covered Now! We had a super time at Motorcycle Day at Moosehaven. There were over 40 bikes, great friends and riders, great lunch and as always the residents are always happy to see us. They so enjoy riding on our bikes. Some residents were past riders in their day so it's nice to hear their stories. Thank you Moosehaven for a FUN event. Plans are in the making for our Annual Biker Ball, which will be in March of This is our 4 th one and is always a guaranteed fun time. Come see what we re up to this year. If you ve ever been to one, you know it s a blast and a great fund raiser. We'd love to see some other new Lodges make the trip to our Lodge for this event. It ROCKS!! Upcoming Mandarin 42 Rides and Events October 5 th Open House at the Florida Sheriff s Youth Ranch November 3 Florida Sheriff s Youth Ranch: Turkey in the Ground, Caruth, Fl. November 10 Florida Sheriff s Youth Ranch: Turkey in the Ground, Barberville, Fl. November 11 Veterans Day Parade, complete with Riders, kids, Lodge Veterans and our float. Great exposure for the Moose Riders. Great things are happening with the Mandarin #42 Moose Riders. We ve been doing our normal fundraising with BBQs, Pool Party raffles and rides and our newest is BINGO. We are providing our Lodge a new activity on Wednesday evenings from 7-9 p.m. and it's been going GREAT. We don t have a fancy bingo machine but we have improvised with a homemade board and an old fashion roll em bingo cage game. (By the way, any Lodges wanting to sell or donate a machine, let us know.) Nonetheless, it still works. We are trying to build our player base up. We have our regular games, a Jackpot, special games and the lucky number game. We even have our Governor involved: he helps us work the bingo board, and he s our Vanna. He s been a great sport. As a result of a joint effort of the Moose Riders and a generous donation from our Lodge, we now have a super covered parking area. No more parking in the hot sun or having a wet seat. It is awesome. We intend to paint parking lines, possibly add lights and a picnic table nearby. So a big THANK YOU to our Lodge for helping us. Not many Riders have this luxury at their Lodge. We hope to have a great upcoming year with our new officers on board.

25 Riders make it to Mooseheart on second attempt Pledge Run for the Kids: Monterey, CA, to Mooseheart 25 By Derrick Morris, Mike Chiesa and Benny King It started out on Friday Night May 10 th with a Send Off Party where all three of us had our motorcycles there ready to go. We all stayed a little later than we had planned, but met at Benny s house in Salinas at 7:00am to head south to Paso Robles for our first Lodge stop and collect their pledges for the ride. It was already getting warm and we shed our jackets and did not put them on for 3 to 4 days, as the weather was quite warm for the first part of the trip. We then went to Lodges in Stockdale, Tehachapi and China Lake Lodge in Ridgecrest. Although off the beaten trail, we now know why we ended up going to Ridgecrest. This trip is about the kids and we met Linda Estes whose son Corey is a resident of Wisconsin Home at Mooseheart. She was so thankful for what we were doing and it choked up all three of us. Times like this are beyond words and beyond our plans. It is fate. Then we went through Death Valley to our final destination in Pahrump, NV. It was over 100 degrees in the shade, even warmer on the bikes. The next day we headed to Vegas and went to Red Rock and Las Vegas Lodges. Mike and I have now been to every Lodge in Nevada. On the way out of Vegas, Benny got a flat tire but we were able to plug the puncture. Our first stop in Utah was to be Coral Pink Sand Dunes. Following the GPS we turned off the highway onto a two-lane road. About 2 miles down the road there was a sign that said pavement ends in 2 miles. We continued on, as we are all dirt bikers as well. Soon it went from dirt to sand. The street bikes do not handle well in the sand at all. We fought it for about 3 miles when we met up with a family on the side of the road. They said it was still another 5 miles to pavement and it got worse. We decided to abort the mission and headed back. Going up 97 in Utah is beautiful and we went through the town of Panguitch and by Bryce Canyon, then it was through Richfield and finally into Green River, UT, where we spent the night. In two days we had ridden 1100 miles. Day 3 started out heading to Grand Junction, CO, where we checked out the Lodge, then to Rifle, which is an Old West town with great charm. Waiting for the Lodge to open we checked out the pawnshop owned by a Moose member. We met some great people in the Moose Lodge in Rifle. Continuing east we went by Vail, which still had a lot of snow, then through the Continental Divide (it is in a tunnel on I-70) and to the Denver Lodge. We saw two more Lodges in Aurora and Brush and stayed the night in Yuma, CO. The next day was all back roads in eastern Utah and western Nebraska. Mike and I had been to every Lodge in Nebraska except Lincoln, so that was our mission for the day. But the Lodge was not opened, so we went to the local bike shop to get Benny a new rear tire and then to Nebraska City to visit some of Derrick's Relatives. Now after 4 days, we are at 2175 miles. Next we went to some more Lodges in Carroll, Boone, Ames, and Marshalltown and stayed the night. If you ever make it to Marshalltown Lodge, ask Buck to tell you how to find members to join your Lodge. It is a great story. The next day, we went to the Cedar Rapids and Clinton, IA, Lodges then crossed the Mississippi River at Clinton. We then found the Sterling Lodge, Dixon Lodge, John Deere s Home, Rochelle Lodge and the Sycamore Lodge. We then went to Dekalb, Yorkville and Morris Lodges and stayed the night in Morris, IL. Friday morning it was some photo ops in Morris, IL, up to Aurora Lodge, then to Batavia Lodge where we passed right by Mooseheart. Seeing the Field House and front gate gave Derrick goose bumps he will NEVER forget. It was inspiring to see what a group of men and women can do with a common goal. We checked in at the front gate and then went to the Field House where we met Chris Ecker some other riders and Charlie from Florida. The three of us then went on a self-guided tour of Mooseheart, taking (continued)

26 pictures, going to the gift store, House of God and then to the PJO Hall to the cafeteria. Then it was off to check in at the Hotel in Lombard and get some rest, as it was Blessing of the Bikes Pre- Party at the Lombard Lodge that night. We walked to the Lombard Lodge and partied with everyone to start the celebration of the 10 th Annual Blessing of the Bikes. It ended up being a very late night for Derrick and Mike Benny had checked out a little earlier. We met riders from all over the country and started our friendships with them. The next morning we had breakfast at Lombard then joined the Pack Ride to Mooseheart with police escort through Lombard. We pulled into Mooseheart followed shortly by the St. Charles Lodge led by Erik Estrada. After introductions at the bleachers, the Parade to the House of God for the Blessing was a highlight of the day for us. We stayed for the festivities and then headed back to Lombard for their after-party. Sunday, we made our way to St. Charles Lodge for the Laptop Presentation. It was so much fun interacting with the kids and meeting Jan Fregulia and her husband. After the presentation and lunch we decided to say good-bye and start heading north due to the weather. At this point we did not have any set plans, agenda or destinations. We went north to the McHenry Lodge in Johnsburg then to the Zion-Benton Lodge; we then crossed into Wisconsin to the Kenosha Lodge and finally the Racine Lodge. We stayed in Racine for the night. The next day it did not look too bad so we went to Milwaukee to see the lakeshore, the Harley-Davidson museum, went on a tour of the Harley engine assembly plant and finally the Jelly Belly Factory tour. The following day, we ventured back to Milwaukee and went to the Discovery Museum where we spent the day. The first day we really had any rain was heading into Milwaukee for the convention. 26 The guys decided to go with me and we found Joan and Charlie were staying at the same hotel along with Hiram and Ann from our Lodge. Derrick went to convention and Mike and Benny went sightseeing. That night the three of us along with Ann and Hiram went to SPIN for dinner. It was a cool restaurant where you could also play Ping Pong as they had tables throughout the restaurant. With Derrick at convention and Benny and Mike then went to Springfield, IL, for the Springfield Mile. They travelled to Lincoln's Tomb at the Lincoln Memorial Cemetery, where they learned so much more about his life than they did in school. The Memorial Cemetery was immense; greater than they ever could have imagined without actually seeing it for themselves. Taking the toll roads was a new experience as California doesn't have very many. They were surprised at how often they had to stop to pay another toll. Benny also had to find a replacement for his worn front tire. After the tire change, they then left to go to the Springfield Mile Motorcycle Race which was rained out. So they went to St. Louis, MO, viewing the area from the top of the Arch. It took a specialized elevator that seated five people at a time and operated similar to a Ferris wheel. The view was fantastic looking out over the Mississippi River and the city of St. Louis. Caught in heavy rains and winds on the way to Lincoln, NE, they decided to find a motel to wait for Derrick. The trio had been separated for five days by that time. Worsening weather had Derrick leave the convention early and it was only to get worse. Despite a favorable forecast Derrick checked out and was loaded up when it started to pour. After an hour wait in the garage he took off, went three blocks and it started pouring again. He fought through the rain, traffic, road construction taking about an hour to get 20 miles out of the city. The second half of the day was much nicer. Derrick caught up with Benny and Mike at the motel in Lincoln, Nebraska, riding just over 600 miles for the day. We stayed on the interstate through Nebraska and hit the Lodge in Ogallala. We purposely skipped North Platte (this is where we broke down last year). After Ogallala it was off to Cheyenne and Laramie. The next morning was bright, crisp and WINDY. We suited up, put on chaps for the first time on the trip and glad we did. (continued)

27 The 40+ mph wind was either headwind or side winds the entire day in Windoming not Wyoming. The winds were so bad at one point that Mike's bag flew off the back of his bike with all bungee cords still in place. Luckily a motorist got our attention and Benny retrieved Mike's bag. The winds lasted until we were in Utah. We visited the only Lodge in Utah in Tooele and returned the tire gauge borrowed last year. We finished the day at Wendover, NV (right on the border of Nevada and Utah. In the morning we headed west to Fernley, and visited the Lodge, a favorite, and saw Woody and Mack. After a few, it was off to Mason Valley Lodge in Yerrington, where Benny met his quest to join Mike and I at being at every Lodge in Nevada. We stayed the night at Meadowcliff Lodge in Coleville, CA, at a motel owned by a friend of Derrick's. On the last day of our trip (a short 350 miles) we visted a friend in Gardnerville, then up and over to South Lake Tahoe on Kingsbury Grade. We left Lake Tahoe and took 89/88 back towards home. Derrick had a flat tire up in the mountains and was lucky enough to be able to pull over at Cook's Station and plug it. After a wonderful 3 week trip we made it home around 4:00. Through this article, we have shared our memories and re-lived the trip again and what a joy it has been. We are so fortunate to have been able to share in this experience. We met many wonderful people at all the Lodges we visited, at the bike blessing, at the laptop presentation, at convention, and our kids/staff at Mooseheart. If you ever get the chance (actually you should make it a goal) you should visit Mooseheart and see what it is that we are doing for our children. We will never stop giving to Mooseheart or let our Moose Memberships expire. The three of us are all officers of our Lodge, all Moose Legionnaires and will strive to keep the fraternity growing. PS: We missed Rich Vernon from Florida (one of the many from Florida and elsewhere that we met on this trip) when he came by the Lodge here in Monterey. He is going to give us a little warning before his trip here around Christmas when we can see each other and re-live the trip again.

28 Texarkana Moose Rider Start Up! New Moose Rider Group Up to 16 Members Since August L-R: Jeff Robey, President, Peggy Scholtyssek, Secretary, Wallace and Linda Copp, Vice President and Treasurer. I and 5 other individuals attended a ride that Grand Prairie, TX Lodge 1818 / Chapter 1650 had on July 20 th. After attending, we returned to Texarkana and founded the Texarkana Moose Riders on August 10, I am excited to announce we already have 16 members. The support from Texarkana Moose Lodge 2282 / Chapter 1731 has been superb. We are already making a difference by having our first Poker Run on October 26th. We hope to make this a beginning of an annual poker run. This is for all types of vehicles, not just motorcycles. We offer raffles, 50/50 drawing, food and more. The Texarkana Lodge also has other amenities such as horseshoes, Wii Bowling and an outside patio. I would like to encourage Grand Prairie Ride: you can see Tommy Moose on anyone who has not been to Texarkana to come visit the Men, Women and Moose Riders of Lodge 2282 / Chapter 1731 Riders. In fact, if you are in the area October 11-13, stop by for the Legion Celebration at the Lodge. For further information regarding Texarkana Moose Riders and the Poker Run our is: Jeff Robey, President Texarkana, TX 2282 Moose Riders Activity Group Gary & Dow Wilcox, Charter Members of Texarkana Moose Riders, at Grand Prairie Ride 28

30 FOR A FALLEN HERO Billy Beckworth, All our Love to his Family and Friends If you were looking for a perfect example of what a Moose member should be, Billy Beckworth would be as close as I have ever met. Billy was born in Texas and at a young age moved to Tennessee. He moved to Labelle, FL, almost 16 years ago, with his wife, Johnnie Sue, the love of his life. He was a true southern gentleman. He liked a good time, but, when it came to his family, work or the Moose, there was nothing he would not do to make life better for everyone. Billy always put himself last. He loved his wife of 16 years; he worshipped the ground that lady walked on. Johnnie Sue had three children whom he considered his own. He never had a harsh word for anyone, unless you crossed Johnnie Sue and then it was her Knight to the rescue. They shared the birth of four beautiful grandchildren and had one on the way. Billy loved with all his heart and you could see it in his eyes when any of the grandchildren were around. They had his complete and I mean complete devotion. Billy served the Moose as Governor of Lodge 2398 and Past Governor, working hard to make the Lodge a great place for every member. He served as the Sergeant of Arms for the District 26 and always attended the District meeting. He would count his Lodge members in attendance and the count became his trade mark 3 men 2 women. Without counting, he d just say Labelle 3-2 His Lodge got such a thrill over this, they made him tee-shirts that just said 3/2. There was nothing he would not do for you, said Al Casale the district president at his service. Billy was always the first to say, Al is there anything I can do for you. That was Billy always giving. Leading the parade of family members after the service were TJ Potts Billy s best friend, then his brother followed close behind with Johnnie Sue. A parade of bikes lit up the start with a yell from TJ, Light um up for Billy guys, and a roar of thunder sounded one last time to pay tribute to a Fallen Hero and Friend. The line of bikes stopped people in this small town in their track in amazement, waving and I heard someone yell from the crowd we love ya Billy I was awed. The Moose Riders were special to Billy, He tried very hard to form a committee and make his Lodge stronger. He worked endlessly to make this group a reality. With help from his new governor Carl, it finally happened; they formed the Moose Riders group for Lodge 2398 in late July He loved Harley Davidsons and when his friend TJ Potts from Louisiana called and told him he had bought a Harley, I think Johnnie Sue knew it would not be long before he got his own. Well that never happened for Billy. He was taken on August 14, 2013, before he could ride his new Iron Horse. At the service the Governor of the Lodge made sure to present Johnnie Sue with a Moose Rider charter membership award for Billy. She just cried, and then in a trembling voice said Billy would be so proud and then at the top of her lungs she yelled, Billy I know you are riding the stairway to heaven there is no way he s going to walk. Billy was loyal, trustworthy, giving, honest, funny, tough, gentle, and adventurous, a Moose and a Moose Rider member. I would like to tell you I knew Billy for a long time, but I did not. I only knew him for short time, but that is why I am writing this because he had made such a impression on me, and I am sure others have felt the same. When we walked into the Lodge after the memorial service the first thing I looked for was Billy, because he always waved and had a good to see ya, for everyone who came through that door. Most people that met him with his biker look tee shirts, and dew rag, that barely ever came off knew within a minute he was just a Nice Guy. But I found him more than that. I saw this loving husband and family man who believed in a cause and worked to make this world a better place. He will be missed. In closing I would like to say I tried my best to help you understand just the kind of person Billy was, but I am sure I have fallen short. I think his grandson and wife said it best. You never had a bad time with Billy and He Loved more Jeannette Linder, Lehigh Acres Moose 30
