NOTE: When applying for a Charter
for a local Chapter, it is advisable to follow MC Protocol and contact the
Dominate Motorcycle Club in your area. They have a vested interest in
knowing what clubs are being formed in their areas. As of this
writing, we have had no problems. Most want to know that we are not going
to cause them problems, or lay claim to a territory. If a citizen sees a patch on a vest, they do know
the difference between us and one of the Big Four MC's, or a local club.
Thus is the reason of our main rule. Conduct yourself
accordingly. Act as though you were in Blue Lodge while wearing the
Freemasons RC Coat of Arms.
