The Memphis HOG chapter prides itself in the participation of its members in chapter's activities. To reward the individuals that get involved with the chapter, these individuals receive a yearly Participation Patch or a rocker for the following year after you previously have been awarded the patch. We encourage all Memphis HOG members to strive to receive this Participation Patch.  A Patch and subsequent Rockers are awarded on a points system.  In order to earn your patch and/or rocker you must earn 25 points during a calendar year.  You earn points by:

Memphis HOG "Rider" Patch

 

The patches are earned based on a 12-month period, running from January 1 to December 31 of each year. All points reset on January 1 of each year.

 

Multiple patches can be earned in a calendar year. Qualifying rides, volunteering, etc. cannot be used for more than one patch. For example, you can earn the Rider patch and the Bronze patch in a single calendar year. The Rider patch would require 8 rides and 1 volunteer activity. Once you met the requirements of the Rider patch, you could start working on your Bronze patch. The Bronze requirements are 12 rides and 2 volunteer activities. So during the calendar year, you would have to do 8 rides for the Rider patch and 12 rides for the Bronze patch for a total of 20 rides, along with 1 volunteer activity for the Rider patch and 2 volunteer activities for the Bronze patch for a total of 3 volunteer activities.
