October meeting was cancelled due to Hurricane Matthew.No Secretary report. You will see all other reports in newsletter.


Wow, talk about a crazy month... with all the damage from Hurricane Matthew I hope everyone came through it welland are recovering with the rest of us, I haven't heard any official report but from what I seen Biketoberfest wasway down in numbers but still a lot of fun for the little bit I got out. With our meeting being cancelled last month andnon of us were able to go to the State meeting I don't have much to report other than please be safe out there.There has been to many deaths lately from bikes getting run over. The good news is that the weather has cooled abit and we are coming into the dry season.. Looking forward to seeing everyone at our meeting this month...

Thank you,AlfyVice PresidentDaytona Beach Chapter ABATE of Florida, Inc

Wow! What a difference a month makes!

Since my last report..we've been through one of the strongest hurricanes on record. We had to cancel last months meeting be-cause it was on the eve of the storm and everyone was preparing for the worst. I'm happy to say I was pretty lucky comparedto the rest of my town of Flagler Beach with over a half dozen mature trees down and a few tons of debris scattered across 5acres but no damage to the house.

The state meeting and the state fall party was Saturday, the next day after the devastation. I talked to the state presidentand vice president and we were excused as a chapter without being penalized. As far as I know, the party went on as it wasfurther inland but I didn't here if it was a success or not. I'll try to find out before our next meeting and also see if I can get theminutes of the state meeting also so we know what's the latest and greatest.

The following week we had Biketoberfest. To be expected given the circumstances..there were hotels and restaurants/bars thatwere damaged and not open. I heard tne number of visitors were down also as to be expected. I was on Main Street and at theIron Horse and Beaver Bar to name a few and it was business as usual.

Next month we have the Christmas run to the Daytona Rehab Center and hopefully we'll know the time and date so we canplan ahead.

The next chapter meeting is Thursday, November 3rd..weather permitting..lol..hope to see you all there!

Nov. 8 General Elections VOTE!!!!!

July, 2016 Registered motorcycles in Volusia County 34964

July 16, 2016 Motorcycle license endorsements 61452

Motorcyclists could make a difference but are not at their potential. ABATE of Florida cannot endorse candidates. We can report on the voting record and theirviews on the issues that affect motorcyclists. Our lobbyist, Doc Reichenbach, can say who he likes. The recent NRA voters guide shows no conflict between gunowners goals and concerns of motorcyclists with those running for State offices from Volusia County
