Now that we are up and running I figured we would need a chat thread. This is for basically anything from saying "Good Day" or to posting Chapter ideas and info.

Alright, now we need to build up membership and plan a good get together. I hope that eventually we will turn this into something like a family and we can help each other when needed and have lots of fun doing it.

Hey guys! Let me know what y'all think about the Bylaws. Any comments or criticism post it up.

Dixie Strokers Chapter Bylaws

I. Primary
The Dixie Strokers chapter bylaws may not contradict the local chapter bylaws provided by Powerstroke.org. These bylaws are only an addition to the ones provided by Powerstroke.org.

II. Membership
Chapter membership is open to any Ford Powerstroke enthusiast that resides in the state of Alabama. The Dixie Stokers logo must be displayed on the vehicle but the location of the sticker is up to the owner. Members must attend at least 25% of the Dixie Strokers events.

III. Chapter Events
All chapter events will be posted on Powerstroke.org in the Dixie Strokers section. Any announced event that draws at least 25% of the Dixie Strokers members will qualify as an official event.

IV. Chapter Decision Making
Any decisions for the Dixie Strokers will be handled by the officers of the Dixie Strokers. The officers will first address the administration of Powerstroke.org and then will address the members of the Dixie Strokers. Any decision must have two-thirds majority vote from the Dixie Strokers to be passed. In the event of a tie, a new poll will be made in which the two-thirds of the members must vote in the majority. Only Dixie Strokers chapter members may vote on any matter pertaining to the Dixie Strokers chapter.

V. Removal from Chapter Membership
A member may be removed from the Dixie Strokers at any time, with a written request to one of the officials. Any member may be removed by two-thirds majority of voting members. A vote for removal will be made and left open for no less than 14 days. Grounds for removal include, but not limited to, rude or obnoxious behavior, dishonesty to any member on Powerstroke.org and anything that brings disgrace to the Dixie Strokers or Powerstroke.org.

VI. Removal of Chapter Officials

Any elected official may be removed from office by two-thirds majority of voting members. A vote for removal will be posted and left open for no less than 14 days. Ground for removal include, but not limited to, failure to perform the duties of office or any actions that bring disgrace to the Dixie Strokers or Powerstroke.org.

VII. Amendment of Chapter Bylaws

The chapter bylaws may be amended at any time with two-thirds majority of voting members.

Sounds fine to me. I see I got the Historian vote. I'll try to do a good job. I must admit a possible violation though. The ol girl has been rolling a little more coal than usual. I haven't been really trying but I looked back and she was kinda fogging a little when I leaned on her. I guess those 3 cans of injection cleaner helped.

How about ideas for a joint Tennessee and Alabama chapters get together,

What kinda activities do we want?
Family activities, State park/ Campground, Lake/River, Mountains, diesel shop/dyno, drag strip/ sled pull

Seems like for a lot of us money is a bit of an issue so we may want to keep it cheap as possible so that more can come.

I figure if we can throw out a lot of different ideas then decide what we want to do then we can decide where and when.

So let’s start throwing ideas out;
I'll start a new thread about this so we can keep it all in one place and not clutter up our chat thread
Here is the thread;

I haven’t figured it out yet, first things that came to mind were a Detroit locker and a junkyard swap for a limited slip. I got to do more research and figure out my options. That’s the main reason I posted about it, to get feedback on different options and things to watch out for.

I would love to have a locker and atleast a lsd in the front but all of that would be useless if I don't get better tires 1st! For example.....

It doesn't look that bad but my tires aren't cleaning AT ALL but I eventually got out but just slid down into a worse spot

I finally gave in and called a big chevy :(
