here's the story. a friend mentioned the CMC and figured that i would like to join. turns out they are a newly formed all Canadian riding group. i checked them out and low and behold, they had two groups starting up near me. both were about two hours away, but hey...i would get to ride there.
so, i joined up with the fredericton group because heck, i enjoy a ride to our province capital when the weather gets toasty. i quickly find out that i'm the only one in the group! que the founder of CMC. he calls to find out whether i live in fredericton or saint john. turns out they are looking to open a chapter in saint john. well, a couple of emails later, i find myself the 1st officer of the saint john, new brunswick chapter of CMC. it took a few minutes for that one to sink in. joey kind of looked at me funny too.
see, i know i've said this before, i'm really not a social kind of animal. i usually keep to myself. i'm the quiet guy at the party...if i go to the party at all. it's not that i'm anti-social, i'm just used to spending time by myself...being an only child and all that.
now, here i am in charge of a chapter of a motorcycle riding/social club. LOL. i guess it's a "jump in with both feet" kind of thing. i'm very curious and excited to see how all this turns out. suddenly, i have a bunch of things that i need to get done like advertising, building a website (maybe), staying up to date on the forums and chapter news (not hard as i think the computer is glued to my hip anyway), and keeping an eye on my own forum...when i get members under me...hehe.
i've already been informed that it's all voluntary and i'm not being forced into anything. to me, that's great. this is a prime opportunity for me to push myself in an area that i have never excelled at. i really think this will be a good thing for me. oh...and it'll give me an excuse to ride more. yeah, like i need more excuses to ride. ;)
