Memphis Road Hogs Participation Patch

 

 

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.
