District 15 ~ 2010 Atlanticade Motorcycle Festival
Jan 11, 2010
ST. ANDREWS, N.B. - The Atlanticade Motorcycle Festival is going coastal in 2010. The 4th annual event will be held in this quaint seaside town from June 30th to July 4th after being hosted in Moncton for the past three years.
Atlanticade chairman Dale Hicks of Moncton says the move was based on a number of factors and credits town officials with being very determined in their efforts to bring the festival to this tourism focused town. “We were approached by town representatives back in the summer once the Bon Jovi concert was announced in Moncton and the resulting challenges that presented our event in terms of hotel accommodations” says Hicks. “We didn't take their initial overtures very seriously but they were persistent and once we sat down to see what they could offer it very quickly became evident to our committee that the whole community was behind the effort to host the event for 2010 and beyond. In the end they basically presented us with an offer we couldn't overlook”.
In fact Hicks says that several communities had expressed their desire to host the event which has drawn 5,000 participants the past two years and generates an economic spin-off in the $3 million dollar range. “We had representatives from other municipalities contact us to see if we were willing to move the event but St. Andrews was the first group we actually sat down with. It became clear they were very engaged and willing to work directly with us to make the festival a success” stated the founder of Atlanticade.
Leaving Moncton was not an easy decision but St. Andrews offers some very unique benefits to the festival which the committee believes will be key to the overall success and growth of the event. “The fact everything will be located within a five minute walk, the charm of the downtown, being situated on the water, and having the famous Algonquin Hotel as the headquarters for the festival should make for a welcoming atmosphere for the participants” says committee member Krista Mollins-Jamieson. “The folks at the Algonquin have been very involved in working with town officials to make this happen”.
The entire Charlotte County will see the benefit of the event with motorcycle tours and events planned for St. Stephen, St. George and Black's Harbour. “There are some very scenic and historic areas to visit in this region” added Hicks. “Many participants have never visited this region of the province so they are in for a real treat”.
Hicks was also excited about the prospects of attracting more bikers from the New England States. “Given the proximity to the US border we will are planning more marketing and promotion to our American friends for sure” he added.
Town of St. Andrews Mayor John D. Craig stated that this announcement is great news not only for the Town but for the entire Charlotte County. “At a time when tourism needs help, this event will inject a much needed boost to the local area economy. We are pleased and excited to welcome and host Atlanticade 2010 to both St. Andrews and the Charlotte County”.
Details for the 2010 festival are still be worked out but interested participants can go to for regular updates.

12th District ~ Somer Thompson Ride
Oct 28, 2009
Hello, my name is Rebecca Hendrix. I am a member of Jax Bikers in Jacksonville Florida. The dissapearence and murder of an Orange Park Child Somer Thompson has hit our community very hard. Our riding group is putting together a fundraiser motorcycle ride for the Thompson family. Would it be possible to put this out. We are noticing that this has become a national story and we would like to get the nation involved. This is a wonderful family and no mother should ever have to go through this. Thank you for you time and please call me if you have any questions or would like to participate at 904-622-6309.
Our ride is going to start out at Love 2 Ride in Green Cove Springs with kickstands up at 11am. We will continue from there past the Thompson home and on to Buffalos Wings in Orange Park where we will have live bands, all you can eat food of every kind, a bounce house for the kids provided by the fire department who will also be cooking and several other fundraising activities. Cost is $10.00 per person for the ride and all you can eat. 100% of the proceeds will go to the family.
Thanks again,

We have 2 rides next weekend for all members not going to Colorado. 9/12/09 in Maine and 9/13/09 in MA. If anyone Knows of other rides let me know so I can send it out.

Maine: For those of you who are not riding out to Colorado, there is a Home Town Hero's Ride on September 12th.  It is approximately a 2 hour ride the goes from Big moose Harley to the Gorham Fire station.  There is a BBQ lunch provided after the ride at the Gorham Fire Station.  I would love to get as many riders there as possible.  The registration fee is $10 per person and I believe most if not all of that money will be donated to a proceed but i cannot be 100% positive on that.  Registration starts at 8am so I thought we could all meet in the Khol's parking lot off of riverside Street on the Portland, Westbrook Town Line.  There is a Dunkin Donuts there and if we leave from there at 8am for big moose we will be able to ride as a group in the line up.  During the lunch I would love to hear ideas for next years riding season and I will have some thoughts for you as well.  Hope to see you all there and feel free to reply so I know who is coming or just show up. We will leave for Big Moose at 8am

Aug 02, 2009
The Anne Arundel Professional Fire Fighters Burn Foundation will be holding their annual Motorcycle Ride Saturday, August 15th!! 98 Rock is promoting this event. It has been a huge success and a lot of fun. Money goes to help support Mid-Atlantic Burn Camp, the International Association of Fire Fighters Burn Foundation’s International Burn Camp as well as other worthwhile causes.
They are asking that we forward this link to you. If you know anyone who rides a motorcycle please pass this info on to them. This link will take you to a site where you can get all the info on the event and register. If the link does not work when you click on it, copy and paste it into your browser and you should be OK.
Last year we helped with registration. Unfortunately, this year we will still be at Burn Camp. They are asking for assistance with registration early that morning (7:30 to 10:30 AM). If you have a couple of hours to help out please wear a MABC camp shirt (if you have one) and head on over to Cancun Cantina. 
Additionally, all of the Burn Camp counselors will end up at the Cancun Cantina for the after ride festivities.

Dec 11, 2008

2009 4th District Rides

The 4th District of the IAFF Motorcycle Group, currently has two rides in the planning stages for 2009. These rides are open to any member of the IAFF and IAFF-MG. 

Also, if your local is sponsoring a Motorcycle in 2009 please e-mail me the information so we can get it posted for other members in teh 4th District. Additional event and ride information will be provided as it becomes available. 

The First Annual Dan Miller Ride [This year around the Great Lakes]

The first ride is scheduled for May 16th through the 24th and will take the group around the Great Lakes. This ride is dedicated to Brother Dan “the Mad Amishman” Miller. Dan was a member of Greenville, PA Local 1976 whose life was tragically taken from us on June 16, 2008 in a motorcycle accident.  

Ride Overview (grab a map and follow along): The ride will depart Frederick, MD and take us up to Detroit and into Canada. Then up the eastern shore of Lake Huron towards Owens Sound, ON, on to Tobermory, ON and aboard a ferry to take us towards Espanola, ON then Sault Ste. Marie. From there we will head west over Lake Superior towards Thunder Bay, ON. Then we will re-enter the States and head towards the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. From there we will travel down the eastern shore of Lake Michigan and then get back on the Interstate and head home.    

This ride is still in the planning stages but here are the hard facts: May 16th thru the 24th; approximately 3,000 miles will be covered in 9 days; the first and last day will be on the Interstate and I hope to cover 500 miles on those days – that means that the remaining days will average 285 miles; only a drivers license and a birth certificate will be required to cross the border until June 1, 2009. A trouble truck and trailer may be provided for the trip.    

If you have any interest in this ride, then e-mail me and make your subject line “Dan Miller Ride”. I will generate regular updates on the ride for any interested parties. 

The IAFF-MG 3rd National Rally in Colorado Springs, CO

This ride is scheduled for September 13th through the 23rd. I am allowing 4 days out and 4 days back with 3 days of riding around Colorado Springs, CO. 

This ride is also in the planning stages. I have made the trip 3 times now and know that if you want to make it there in a timely fashion – then it is going to involve the Interstate System. I will look in to two different routes for the ride out and back. With a large group I will focus on 400+ mile days on the Interstate. A trouble truck and trailer may be provided for the trip.

Ride Route: The 4th District’s Ride to the 3rd Annual IAFF-MG Rally in Beautiful Colorado Springs, CO Any IAFF Member in good standing is welcome to join us for the entire route or you can meet up with us along the way. The ride in a nutshell is, 1715 miles out, and 1652 miles back. Once we arrive in Colorado Springs we will enjoy 3 days riding around the region. The ride starts in Frederick, MD near Interstates 70 & 270.

September 13th - Day 1: 425 miles to Toledo, OH (Maumee, OH)

September 14th - Day 2: 441 miles to Iowa City, IA (Coralville, IA)

September 15th - Day 3: 426 miles to Kearney, NE

September 16th – Day 4: 423 miles to Colorado Springs, Co

September 17th thru 19th – Days 5, 6 & 7: Enjoyed in Colorado Springs, Colorado. 

September 20th – Day 8: 412 miles to Salina, KS

September 21st – Day 9: 434 miles to East St. Louis, IL (O’Fallon, IL)

September 22nd – Day 10: 446 miles to Huntington, WV

September 23rd – Day 11: 360 miles to Frederick, MD

Our plan is to have an enclosed 4 bike trailer follow the group to handle any breakdowns that may occur. The group will discuss taking Dress Uniforms in the trailer to be worn in conjunction with the IAFF Fallen Fire Fighters Memorial. Hotel rooms have been blocked out for the entire trip but not in Colorado Springs. If you would like to be included on the e-mail list for the trip and if you would like hotel information, the please contact me at      .   
If you have any interest in this ride, then e-mail me and make you subject line “National Rally”. I will generate regular updates on the ride starting in the spring for any interested parties.

Rides to support MDA
Nov 22, 2007

IAFF Motorcycle Group Ready to Roll for MDA

IAFF Motorcycle Group (IAFF-MG) members nationwide continue to are gear up for rides across the country to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association. IAFF-MG members are loyal and committed participants in Harley-Davidson-sponsored MDA rides, including the annual Ride for Life, which draws some 2,000 riders to Pennsylvania. The May 2008 Ride for Life raised more than $1 million for MDA.

On the West Coast, IAFF members support MDA’s annual Sierra Hope Ride each June. The event attracts more than 2,500 motorcycle riders and other enthusiasts.

Preparations are currently underway for several motorcycle events benefiting MDA for the 2009 Riding Season. Riders raise funds primarily by soliciting pledges from friends and local businesses. For example, one minute of MDA research generates a pledge of $85. One week at MDA summer camp for a child with neuromuscular disease is worth $650.

MDA rides offer members of the IAFF-MG an ideal venue for fulfilling the IAFF-MG’s two event ride minimum. In addition, the MDA events feature pre-ride festivities and post-event parties that promote fraternalism and community goodwill, and offer a way to make a difference in the lives of those affected by neuromuscular diseases.

For information on Harley Davidson rides benefiting MDA nationwide, click here. This web site is a valuable resource for Harley Davidson and motorcycle enthusiasts, and includes information on dozens of dealership sponsored rides that support MDA. In addition, the site showcases Harley-Davidson owner’s groups, volunteer efforts and how money raised for MDA is used.

The leading producer of motorcycles worldwide, Harley Davidson, is celebrating its 29th year as an MDA national sponsor. Together with the IAFF, Harley-Davidson creates a powerful partnership in support of MDA.

The IAFF is the largest national sponsor of . More than 280,000 IAFF members in the United States and Canada are committed to saving lives – both as fire fighters/paramedics and as advocates for MDA and its efforts to eradicate neuromuscular diseases.

In addition, the IAFF is the biggest sponsor of the MDA Labor Day Telethon, contributing a record-breaking $26.5 million in 2007. To date, IAFF members have donated nearly $350 million to MDA.

Money raised by fire fighters goes towards MDA summer camps, professional and public health education and other programs.
