Becoming a three pieced patch club was not something I ever really wanted but a vote was taken and all for one you know.
We contacted the powers that be and set up a meeting to get sanctioned. We met with the President of the sanctioning body at a local restaurant.
We were asked if any of our members were in law enforcement and we said no. To be honest it really didn’t even occur to me or several others. And that was the first BIG LIE. After a couple of hours of discussion we were sanctioned to be a three piece motorcycle club and a member of the
Illinois Confederation of Clubs.
After attending an ILCOC meeting we realized we had a problem. Our current President Sheri was actually a volunteer with the Itasca Police department and according to her had the ability to arrest and detain anyone breaking the law in the city. This of course can be verified by simply visiting the Itasca police dept website. So here we are in the middle of a bunch of 1% and our President is a volunteer cop. No one appreciated my joke about no wonder they were always getting infiltrated and arrested.
The plan to repair the problem was Sheri would step down citing work issues and Julie would be made President. We would keep Sheri out of sight as much as possible just in case an ILCOC member happened to see her in Itasca.
I’m not sure how the sanctioning body will feel about this, maybe they won’t care. And just to be clear I was involved just as much as everyone else.
