Each year Hogsback Chapter supports three charities by raising funds at our events through raffles, the Golden Key Draw and other fund raising activities. The Chapter is now seeking nominations for next years adopted charities. Nominations are sought from members before 31 December 2018 and the committee will then make a decision in January. Please supply a short statement about the charity you wish to nominate and send it to our Charity Officer John Fluker at charities@hogsbackchapteruk.org.

H.O.G. Safer Rider Scheme

Have you done some advanced training or a Bifesafe assessment this year? We would like to know because if twelve or more Chapter members have done so this year, the Chapter will get an award from H.O.G. So if you have, it would be appreciated if you would send a scanned copy of your certificate to Head Road Captain Graham Woods and we will do the rest.

Continuing to avoid back patch troubles

You may already be aware that H.O.G. are promoting a series of new logos. As well as the traditional 'Classic' H.O.G. patch, an alternative new look eagle patch, which now incorporates the bar and shield, will shortly be available through the Chapter. You will be welcome to choose either design.

However, we would like to bring to your attention a further logo which is featured on page 43 of Issue 4 2013 H.O.G. magazine. This shows a patch with a skull, wings and a top and bottom rocker. After consultation with a worldwide MCC with local connections, we advise that H.O.G. members should not wear any item of clothing bearing this logo. Accordingly, these patches will not be available from our Merchandise Officer.

If you are unclear about this advice please contact either the Director, a senior member of the Committee or the Dealer Principal.

UPDATE - We have just received this communication from Harley-Davidson Europe Ltd:

"Following consumer feedback on the new skull with wings patch, please be advised that the option is currently withdrawn and will not be available until further notice."
