We had our United Clubs Of Austin (UCOA) meeting today down at Willy’s Joint in Buda. It was a light meeting, perhaps because of the heat, but we still had lots of people there. Thank you to Willy’s Joint for hosting us this month. I took video of the Pledge Of Allegiance, which is posted below, and I have attached a few pictures.

Be sure to check out the UCOA calendar at UCOTEXAS.ORG for all the coming events.

Looking Forward – Chaplains Moment for UCOA July 15th

You have heard the expression that your past can come back to haunt you. There certainly has been enough in our community to haunt us if we dwell on it.

Philippians 3:13 encourages us to; “Forget what is behind and reach forward to what is ahead

Our lives are not defined by what happened in the past. Let that sink in for a moment. We have a bright future. A future that is being defined at this moment, and in all the moments ahead of us.

Let me give you some examples. As I pick up my cell phone and consume my daily dose of Facebook, I see notices of brothers and sisters in our clubs that have gotten together for a ride or for fellowship. I see men and women that just purchased new bikes. I see Companero Bobby has almost finished the ground up rebuild of his sporty. The weekly bike nights are doing well, and I can’t remember the last time I heard of someone in our community that got into a fight. Ok, It may happen, and I may not hear about it, but I know for a fact that we have something very special here in UCOA. I have heard many people talk about how they went to a meeting in another area, and came away thinking UCOA is way better than those other areas because of what we have. What do we have that is so special? That’s easy, we have mutual; Respect, Integrity, Fellowship, Cooperation, Brotherhood, and Participation, to name just a few. These are all characteristics of our community, and they are also characteristics that bring other clubs to join us.

Earlier I said that what we have is easy. But, It is not always easy to maintain. It takes effort, especially when someone gets on our nerves. But the effort is worthwhile, both for our reputation and for the satisfaction and joy we get from being part of a group that can work together to accomplish a goal and then play together when it is achieved. Our future is bright, and I look forward to even better days ahead.

In Jeremiah 29:11 God said; ”For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

God does truly desire a good life for each of us, if we will just seek Him.

Jeremiah 29:13 says; “You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you”—this is the Lord’s declaration—“and I will restore your fortunes”

God is true to His Word, so we can be certain that He will complete the work He has started. I for one want to be around to see Him finish His work in our community, how about you?

Heathens MC Anniversary Party and Benefit for Karl

We headed out North to the TIME OUT SPORTS BAR in Liberty Hill this afternoon for the Heathens MC Anniversary party and Benefit forKarl’s medical expenses. It was nice when we headed out, in the mid 80s, but shortly after we arrived, the sky opened up and it poured for about an hour. I guess if I had checked the weather radar, I would have seen it coming, but for me it was a surprise. The good news, is that the rain held the temperatures down in the 70s, and we had a couple of groups of hardy bikers come in through the rain. There is just no stopping a party and benefit. We saved out appetites for the food plates they were planning to serve, and because of the rain, lunch got off to a slower start than planned, but it was definitely worth the wait. We were served boneless smoked chicken with a side of potato salad, and ranch style beans, plus all the BBQ sauce, onions and jalapeños we could handle on the side. Yummy stuff I’m telling you!

UCOA Meeting at Bentwood Texas

We had our monthly meeting of UCOA (United Clubs Of Austin) today out at Bentwood Texas in Georgetown. Thank you Ernie for allowing us to use your great facility. We had a couple of UCOA Board officers out for personal business, so Grim Guardian Shooter got the privilege of running the meeting for the first time. He did a great job, so thank you Shooter. There were several events talked about, so be sure to check the  Austin page and Calendar of the UCOTEXAS.ORG web site for all the details. It’s going to be a busy summer, drive safe, and stay hydrated, we don’t want anybody keeling over from heat exhaustion.
