|CHAPTER 77 FAQ
Q: Boozefighters Motorcycle
Club, are you guys against drinkin ?
A: Not hardly, most of us enjoy it. The name
came about in 1946 when we first got started, Walt Porter
suggested the name as the original members were "always
fightin the booze" (as well as fightin and boozin) Our
Founders consisted of WWII Vets and a few locals that were
bored with life back here stateside . They raised a little
hell, rode and partied hard. Some members raced. Today, we try
to carry on that tradition. We are known as The Original Wild
Q: So do you have to drink alcohol to be a Boozefighter ?
A: No. Some of our members do not drink at all, others drink casually, a few
drink too much, if thats possible.
Q: Whats the difference between your Motorcycle
Club (M/C) and a 1 % M/C ?
A: We don’t claim territory, we don’t claim bars, we don’t get involved in 1%
club politics or business. We DO respect 1% clubs and most of them have a mutual respect
for our club.
Q: Can anyone join the Boozefighters M/C ?
A: No. We do not seek to increase membership by handing out patches or becoming
a “mail order” club. If you contact us with interest in joining we require that
you meet us. If the club agrees, we may invite you to hang around (as a guest)
and ride with us, attend some parties or rides and see what we are about. More
importantly, we need to get to know you. After a period of time, if you fit in,
the club members will meet and you may be invited to “prospect”. Prospecting is a
probationary period in which you will learn respect and discover what true brotherhood
is. It takes time, but anyone that is serious about joining, certainly has the patience
to endure his test of time and the dedication to accomplish the required tasks asked of him.
When and if the club members decide you are ready, trustworthy and dedicated, then you could
become a “patch holder” or full member.
Q: What exactly is the Boozefighters M/C ? (Motorcycle Club)
A: Our MOTORCYCLE CLUB consists of men
that understand true BROTHERHOOD and RESPECT. As M/C members,
we have jobs, homes, some of us have families just like your
average American working man. We not only ride together, but
we are true friends, "we love each other as brothers" if you
will. We ride together, party together, assist each other when
the need arises, offer a place to stay for a brother passin
through, provide food, drink as well as entertainment. We will
lend a hand getting a brothers bike repaired or loan him one
of our bikes. Members in our M/C are "extended family".
Boozefighters assist and host some fund raisers or poker runs
to benefit kids, veterans, cancer or other worthy causes. A
REAL BIKER can be your best friend in a time of need.
Q: Will I have to break the law
to become a member ?
A: Get real... You will never be asked or expected to commit a crime, neglect
your family or jeopardize your job.
Q: I'm not sure if I fit in, what kind of clubs
are there besides yours ?
