    2016 Lobby Day Patch

    We have attached the design for the 2016 Lobby Day shirts. All shapes and sizes are $20 and we would like to get the order in by January 1st which should give us time to have them for the State Business meeting on January 9th.
    There is also the Lobby Day patch design and you will need to be at the Lobby Day breakfast and register in to get it.
    Thanks again for supporting ABATE,

    35th Anniversary Helmet Law Proclamation by the Governor's Office

    Lobby Day 2016 35th Anniversary Helmet Law Proclamation

  • This year is very important for legislation affecting bikers in South Carolina.

  • We have received some questions about the Lobby Day patches and I wanted to send out what we decided during in the state legislative meeting.

    Because this is a very critical year with two current bills we want everyone to meet in the morning at the Ale House to cover any legislative items so everyone is on the same page. Last year the Governor was asked about outlawing mopeds, putting up awareness signs on the roads and getting someone a job.  While these are all great ideas was not what our organization was working on.

    That is why we started meeting in one location before everyone gets to the statehouse instead of in front of the Strom Thurmond statue. We also have more people than ever before so why not get together as a united front.

    Now about the patches. We talked about this during the meeting. All other biker events have a start and stop. All of the toy runs, poker runs and rallies. So why would we have this be any different.

    It is not fair to get to where we are going to refuse everyone a patch but if you can't make it in the morning you need to get with Dennis. This doesn't mean a whole chapter skip the meeting in the morning and start doing their own Lobby Day because the is a ABATE event not an individual chapter event.

    That's why this years patch and shirt is about working together. That is what we need to do to protect our rights and we are getting stronger.

    Thanks again to everyone and an early Happy New Year,

    Ralph "Goldwing" Bell

  • Thanks to all the dedicated folks that turned out for lobby day. You do make a difference. This is Ralph receiving a framed David Mann print with his Myrtle Beach Helmet ticket. Tom McGrath represented all who receved a ticket that rainy day. Little did anyone know of the friendships that would evolve from the events of that day. Chad Tom and Ralph are Some of ABATE’s top legislative warriors. Be sure to tell these folks thanks for all they do for our freedom of the road.
