LSP By-Law Changes Poll

Poll Reserved for Lone Star Powerstroke Members ONLY Please!

Our old by-laws do not jive with the new Org by-laws. The main issue is the "Attendance" portion, in the old by-laws we were required to have a minimum 25% attendance to qualify as an official GTG. This is no longer the case.

New By-Laws... Chapter Rules

A chapter may be formed by any group of five (5) members who have some kind of common geographical connection.

All chapters will have a logo. All logos will include “” in their design.

The requirements for being a member of a chapter are the following:

Be a member of in good standing.
Display the Chapter Logo on your vehicle.

Chapters will be required to plan and organize one get together per year. Attendance is optional. There will be no minimum requirements on attendance levels.

Chapters will at their onset, and then whenever they feel the need to, elect a Chapter Director, a Chapter Vice Director, and a Chapter Historian. These positions will hold no authority, but those holding them will serve as coordinators for any chapter event. These positions will be open to any chapter member with the exception of Staff.

Chapter formation will occur at such time as a group has organized, and presented a list of members and a logo design to the staff, and said logo design is approved.

These chapters are a function of As such, they may not function outside of CoC. Also, the staff reserves the right to make changes at any time to facilitate operation of these chapters.

Old By-Laws...

II. Membership

Local chapter membership is open to any Ford Powerstroke enthusiast residing in the state of Texas.

Lonestar Powerstrokes logo must be located on the vehicle, location is up to the owner. Members must attend at least 25% of the Lonestar Powerstrokes’ events.

II.A. Military

To our members in the armed military forces we realize there maybe several individuals who own PSDs and are from Texas but are currently on tour and/or stationed overseas. Lonestar Powerstrokes will exempt you from membership requirements. All the Lonestar Powerstrokes will require is for the individual to attend the next possible event so every member can give their thanks for their service.

III. Chapter Events

All chapter events will be announced on, and in the Lonestar Powerstrokes chapter section. Any announced Texas event which draws 25% or more of Texas chapter members will be considered a qualifying event for maintenance of chapter qualification. Examples of chapter events include, but are not limited to, track meets, camping trips, picnics and wrench meets. national events such as the Southern Smoke Show and/or Diesel in the Desert can be considered a chapter event as long as 50% of the Lonestar Powerstrokes members are in attendance.

Once administration has approved, officers will turn to members to vote in the form of polls post on for all members to view. Any decision must have at least two-thirds vote from Lonestar Powerstroke members before it is confirmed. In the event of a tie or split, another poll will begin in which two-thirds of members must vote in the majority otherwise the matter with be handled by Lonestar Powerstrokes officers and administration with the best interest of Lonestar Powerstrokes in mind.
