This is an exciting time for all of our family in our HOG chapter. We are starting a new chapter and it will be named DHD Omaha Chapter Nebraska. Our new dealership, Defiance Harley Davidson has a whole new outlook on how a dealership should be run and is bringing new excitement, new ideas, and a new way of doing business in the Omaha area. It is only fitting that we have a new HOG chapter to go along with that.
I would like to say “Thank you” to Holstein’s Harley Davidson for all that they did for the HOG chapter in the past 28+ years. Also a special “Thank you” to the charter members, and all the rest of the members of the Omaha Co Bluffs HOG chapter for the dedication, commitments, support, and memories of the first HOG chapter in the Omaha area. I personally have met many people from this chapter in the past 16 years of my HOG relationship and many of them I consider some of my best friends. My wife Kim first talked me into coming to my first Omaha Co Bluffs HOG chapter meeting in 2003.We have been involved with HOG as officers and members of what will now be four different chapters. It becomes a way of life and I love not only the riding, but also the friendships that develop.
Defiance Harley Davidson will be giving us a jump start for the new chapter. We have put in an order through Norscott for several items. If you are a current paid member of Omaha Co Bluffs and have a rocker in either the large or small size, Defiance H-D will exchange it for a new DHD Omaha Chapter Nebraska patch at no charge. And since this is a new chapter, anyone joining now and until the end of the year will become Charter Members. We will also have a Charter Member patch for sale that you can add to your vest.
The dealership is also giving us 2 new chapter flags. We have also ordered shirts for women and men, hats, and other patches that will be for sale at the dealership. Let’s show some pride and excitement to our new dealership and let them know the people from Nebraska know how to be part of a HOG family.
