Third Annual Rod & Kustom BBQ Photos

On Saturday, the CrossMembers Hot Rod Fellowship held their Third Annual Rod & Kustom BBQ at the Restoration Life Christian Church in Lawndale. This was a fundraising event with a car and bike show, [outstanding] live music, and a barbecue. In addition there were a few vendors there and they held a raffle with 100% of the proceeds going to Hands of Hope: Mission Ethiopia. Hands of Hope: Mission Ethiopia provides water purification and well digging services as well as humanitarian relief to the Afar people of Ethiopia. They are attempting to raise $40,000 to purchase a new hydraulic well digging rig which will reach a depth of 300 feet to access clean water far beneath the surface. For more information email hotrodfellowship@hotmail.com or call (310) 973-5059.

I had been informed about the event because of my association with the Original Sinner Motorcycle Club’s Meetup group, the Original Sinners Riding Club. If you ride and are looking for some people to ride with, you should check them out. Bikes of every style are welcomed; this is not part of the motorcycle club, so if you do not want to wear a patch, that is not an issue. After checking out the car and bike show we headed up to Point Fermin and met up with the Sinners at Walker’s Cafe, a popular location overlooking the Palos Verdes Peninsula coastline. I used the opportunity to take two bikes out on the same day; it was a good day. Continue reading

2nd Annual Soldiers Supporting Soldiers, Westminster, CA

Saturday the Soldiers for Jesus MC held their 2nd Annual Soldiers Supporting Soldiers Run, as a fundraiser, at the Westminster Elks Lodge 2346, Home of the Beefeaters. The Soldiers for Jesus MC (SFJMC) held the event to collect items to be sent to an Army unit stationed in Afghanistan. They collected things like playing cards, pre-paid phone cards, disposable cameras, and basic amenities like socks. In return for a cash and item donation we were treated to some food and live music provided by the Anonymous. There was also a 50/50 raffle to help generate cash.

There were quite a few clubs represented out there; in fact, now that I think about it, most were in clubs; while I was there anyway. I rode out with my buddy Phil and some of the Original Sinners that I met via Meetup earlier this week. After hanging out for a while, Phil and I headed over to Matsuyama Sushi, because we were just too close to not do it. Continue reading

Meetup with the Original Sinners RC

My regular readers are probably aware that our business networking group, Business & Beer, recently joined Meetup.com in an attempt to build on the number of attendees at our weekly gatherings. For those unaware of what Meetup is, it is an online social media site that allows people with common interests to set up offline gatherings. In other words, a social media portal that actually encourages you to get away from Facebook and Twitter for a while. Whether you are looking for a business networking group or people to hunt butterflies with you, there is a good chance meetup.com can help you. When I was perusing the many Meetup groups in my area, I came across the Original Sinners RC (Riding Club), which is a subsidiary of the Original Sinners MC (Motorcycle Club).

I had to ask how a motorcycle club found its way to using social media and discovered that a few of the Original Sinners previously joined another group of motorcycle enthusiasts via Meetup. For some reason that I do not recall, these few splintered off and formed the Original Sinners MC. They then decided to utilize Meetup to find additional people to ride with and hopefully find new members to the actual club. Continue reading
