2/23/2012 -Attention Rydaz and Supporters riding with the CFR

posted Feb 23, 2012, 4:09 PM by Draven Mercer


        *Attention All Rydaz and Supporters riding with the CFR*
       _________________________________________________

Attention to all Rydaz: 
Not going into detail until all the facts are straight, before matters are made worse. However recently one of our Brothers was involved in a confrontation with a member of another local Club (Not saying which Club, and we ask if you know to keep the details to yourself while we try and straighten this out)
    
    This Confrontation is of personal nature, between two grown adults who just happen to be members of different Clubs. As long as the matter remains fair and  between the two parties than it can be settled like men, and not involve members of the Clubs.
This being said however, We stand behind our Brothers, and support them in times such as this.
    
    We do ask that for the time being, until a sit down can occur (already in the works) just be vigilant, especially if riding alone. Don't cause any trouble but be aware of those around you. We ask if you are gonna be in any bars, take a Brother or two with ya if your flying your Colors, as this seems to be the reasoning for the trouble.

    This weekend, The Club will be involved in the GeorgeFest activities, and we expect a good time for all involved and no problems. The CFR will be in attendance, possibly as well as AnarchyX and Sur13 supporting members. Details and extra security issues will be discussed at the Festival but I am expecting a awesome time with a lot of community interaction. Have Fun Rydaz!

2/22/2012 -GeorgeFest

posted Feb 22, 2012, 10:41 AM by Draven Mercer   [ updated May 31, 2013, 6:13 AM ]

Join the Central Florida Rydaz this weekend, starting Friday night for fireworks and the carnival, in Downtown Eustis for Georgefest 2012.

a little history (from the official website):
The first festival was held on February 22, 1902 on the grounds of the Ocklawaha Hotel. Residents produced a pageant depicting the early history of the State of Florida, the Nation as a whole, and how the Eustis area was settled. Tourists staying at the hotel enjoyed the festival and many visitors from nearby villages came by horse, mule, foot or boat to enjoy the events.

The idea of the festival took hold and were held in subsequent years, gradually growing in scope and acceptance as an event to attend. In later years, people were even brought in by trains for the event. In 1911, the crowd was estimated at about 2,500 – about twice the size of the actual population of Eustis! Today more than 10,000 people attend the annual festival.

Eventually, as the parade and boating elements came into the picture, the activities migrated to the downtown and lakeside areas. Various types of boat races were introduced. When it was time to watch a water event, everyone went to the lake-shore of the city pier at the end of Magnolia Ave. This pier was about where the Lake Eustis Area Chamber of Commerce is now located, before Ferran Park was built.

Thousands continue to turn out to enjoy the multi-day event.  Whether they are there to sample the foods, watch the parade, participate in the various games listen to the live bands, or just enjoy the rides, there is sure to be something for everyone at this full weekend of entertainment.

Wow...cant believe with all the shit that's been happening over the last year, that nobody has updated the website. We need to find someone who can update the news on a regular basis and has stable internet access. But anyways, on to the news...

-Dogboy has officially been voted in as a full Soulja, ending his very long Prospect period. Congrats to the newest CFR Brother.

-Also since nobody is online to update this regularly, it should just state that over the past year and planning to continue, you can come support the CFRAC twice a month in downtown Eustis in the LC.
    We are at every StreetFest on the first Friday of every month as well as the Cruise-In's

-The CFR Facebook can be reached on the main page of this site, and is a far better way to reach us and recieve notices of rides and events.

Its DGAF's favorite time of year! Bruce Rossmeyer’s Ride for Children, presented by Bruce Rossmeyer’s Daytona Harley-Davidson and JM Family Enterprises, with support of The Central Florida Rydaz AC will be held on Sunday, October 10, 2010!

In 1995, Bruce Rossmeyer, owner of Daytona Harley-Davidson became involved with Camp Boggy Creek. After visiting this amazing Camp for children with chronic and life threatening illnesses, he pledged to raise $1,000,000 within ten years. Thanks to the support and help from so many motorcycle enthusiasts throughout Florida and the Southeast, over $3,800,000 has been generated since inception.

The Ride continues to grow every year and not only raises dollars but much needed awareness of the Camp. Last year’s Ride netted almost $300,000 for the kids of Camp Boggy Creek. None of this would be possible without the generous sponsors, supporters, riders, volunteers and employees of Daytona Harley-Davidson who make this great Ride possible furthering the mission of Camp Boggy Creek.

Past Grand Marshals have included Paul Newman, General Norman Schwarzkopf, Kyle Petty, Lorenzo Lamas, Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, Orange County Choppers - Paul Sr. and Paul, Jr., Arlen Ness, Eddie Trotta, Roland Sands, Jesse Rooke, the late Johnny Chop, James Gandolfini and Aida Turturro of the Sopranos, Billy Lane, Vinnie DiMartino and Cody Connelly, Dave Perewitz, Shannon Burke and the Monsters of the Morning from Real Radio 104.1 and Frank Scott of WHOG 95.7 Radio.

So its currently Aug 21st, The rundown of this months news and upcoming news is as follows;
 
*As of Aug 9th, CFR Soulja Tha Truth had an appointment for JobCorps orientation, now noone has heared from his since, and after the support (both encouragment and providing room and board) of The Rydaz leading up to the Appt.,  We here at the CFR hope he attended and is currently enrolled, however at this time he is not in contact.
 
*Our current Sgt of Arms has been thinking of possibly retiring from the CFR AC, Although Matric is not a founding member of the CFR, he was the 1st member after the Trio was abolished (making him the 1st member of the CFR). Although the decision has not been made yet, we support him in the fullest on his desision but hope he decides to stay with us. After a decision has been made on his part he will have to be voted out at the next meeting.
 
*CFR Prospect Dogboy has reached his Minimum Three-month trial period, as directed in the Bylaws but still needs to attend 6 events and pay his Prospect fee before being voted in by The Board. However he is one step closer to getting his Crossed Hatchets. On anothe good note, Dogboy is now a proud Father as of June 27th to a beautiful baby girl! Congrats Dogboy!

  • Psychopathic Records has bought a building in Novi, Michigan and beginning later in the year, will be hosting bi-weekly wrestling shows there for free for a long time to come. The intention is to have a permanent on-going wrestling show edited and put out online every two weeks.
  • Sometime in the near future, Psychopathic Records plans to break a world record in Detroit and will be inviting all Juggalos to take part. As of right now, there is no word on what the record will be or when exactly it will be taking place, but everybody will be given plenty of notice before it goes down.
  • Mike E. Clark's Murder Mix Vol.2 will be out November 9th.
  • AMB set to release a new album entitled "The Garcia Brothers" possibly later this year, or the beginning of next year.

  • New Psychopathic Rydas album by aXe-Mas!

 *And now, our response to the recent attack on Tila Tequila at this years Gathering of The Juggalos. For anyone that might not have heared, Tila performed (for some reason) at the Gathering, even after weeks leading up to the show when Juggalos said we didnt want her. After coming onstage she claimed she was attacked by beer bottles (even tho no glass is allowed at the Gathering), and rocks by over 2000 Juggalos. (however on the video there was nowhere near 2000 people at her set) and chased to her trailer where her and her security were in fear of their life. Now the facts seem distorted (in an interview afterward she said there was no trailer). But either way this gives Juggalos a bad name in the media. It is the response from the Club that this in a view of events that may or may not have happened in the context it was portrayed, but nonetheless should not represent Juggalos or the CenFL Rydaz. We here in the CFR are Juggalos and attend concerts (which do get violent and rowdy) but would never condone attacking anyone in this manner, a formal statement will be released by our President after he is cought up and reviewed the situation. following is a few references;

 
    - OFFICIAL RELEASE FROM ICP AND THE GATHERING PROMOTERS
 
Although what happened to Tila Tequila at the 11th Annual Gathering of the Juggalos is extremely unfortunate, Juggalo Gathering, LLC and Insane Clown Posse are not responsible. Ms. Tequila was made aware, in advance, of her unpopularity with many Juggalos at the Gathering, but she insisted on performing.

She was even paid in full before her performance, and was told that she did not have to perform, but if she did decide to perform, she could leave the stage the minute that she felt uncomfortable. Gathering's head of security told her that it was unsafe to go on stage, and recommended that she leave the Gathering grounds. Despite warnings and already being paid without being required to perform, Ms. Tequila made the decision to go onto the stage and perform. As soon as her show started the crowd began to boo heavily and throw garbage. It was immediately obvious that she was not welcome. Her injuries were only sustained because of her refusal to leave the stage. After several minutes, she even removed her top, exposing herself, which seemed to mock and further antagonize the crowd. Finally, Gathering security pulled her off of the stage. Soon after, she was escorted to her car, and was driven safely off of the Gathering grounds.
