Your Eagle Riders of Indiana President, Bryan Titus and the Plainfield Eagle Rider Group 3207 are requesting every group and member of your Eagle Riders to attend the annual Eagle Riders of Indiana meeting.
For all current Indiana Eagle Rider Groups, members and invited guest
Preferably one of the Officer’s or member will be asked to make a report on your groups past 6 months activities (June 1st to December 31st 2018, Just make sure Bryan and Tish know who is going to give your report. This report includes funds raised for charities, through rides or events you have held, amounts your group has donated to your local charities and your Aerie as well, and the State and Grand Charities (Include motorcycle raffle tickets you sold before the state convention in June 2018 only), current membership (total number of members and break it down to how many are men and how many are woman). Also, this year I am asking how many are Aerie (we have some Women in Aerie’s) and how many are Auxiliary) and any new members (that joined your group) since June 1st 2018, what you are doing or plan to do to raise money for your group and or charities for the upcoming fiscal year. Include all your future activities that your group may have planned already, and your dates if known, so that we can put them on the calendar as soon as possible.

Please limit your report to five minutes. Our active groups are getting larger in numbers.
Again, I cannot stress this enough. This meeting will be open to all current Eagle Rider Groups, its Officers, its members, and any Aerie or Auxiliary member thinking of starting a new group of Eagle Riders in their Aerie in Indiana. And you may invite a member who is thinking of joining your group.

I am asking every group and newly formed group, to bring at least two items valued at $25.00 each or more to the meeting, to be raffled off for our National and State Charity. This year’s state charity is Ronald McDonald’s house. We will have Indiana State Fraternal Order of Eagles President Greg Dargie and State Auxiliary President Barb Rankin and a representative from Riley present to tell us all about the Charity and what our funds will help do, in building a new Ronald McDonald House to help support families of sick children.

On April 28th 2018, The Eagle Riders of Oakland City #4288 went trophy hunting… They found such a catch on the 28th and reached their legal limit, that they had to return on the 29th of April to capture the rest from Evansville 4023 Riders!! Way to go Oakland City!! Now who will try to take such a haul from them?
On Sunday April 22nd 2018, the Shelbyville 766 Riders made a trip after their group meeting to Plainfield for a little trophy hunting of their own. with 13 members arriving to capture, Plainfield 3207, Evansville 4023, Terre Haute 291 and Brazil 274 trophy as their reward. A great time was had by all, including our very own special Bartender Marcia at Plainfield Eagles. Bryan, President of 3207 eagle riders was also present to greet them as they arrived by car and motorcycle. I tried locking the doors and turning off the lights, was a persistante group and got in anyway…lol
Plainfield Eagle Riders on April 8th 2018 went out to hunt down and capture some trophies. With over 11 riders they traveled to Terre Haute Eagles 291 and Found Three Trophies ready to be captured. They found their own trophy and Evansville 4023 trophy. But they also cracked the cherry and was the first group to capture Terre Haute 291 Eagle Riders Trophy, since coming back from the dark in November 2017 to become active again, under President Eric Wallace, who made a special effort to come out and greet us. We were greeted with sincere Eagle Hospitality and fun was had my all, including a message that was left on the wall in place of one of the trophies..lol
The 3207 Riders proceeded to stop at Brazil 274 Eagles and found yet another trophy ready for capturing. Even though this one is a behemoth in size…lol, it is grandfathered. (See rules for size requirements). Again we received a warm welcome by our brother and sister eagles and a very good time was had by all. Thank you Rider President Craig Stump for coming out to be with us.
