2016 S.M.I.L.E. Convention
The 2016 SMILE Convention will be here before you know it! The dates for the SMILE is Mar 11-13, 2016.
This year a few things are going to be a bit different than in the past years.
We have an on-line registration and ask that you use it to sign-in and pay for the Saturday lunch and banquet dinner that night, if you plan to be part of those activities.
Through the online registration, you can register yourself, a spouse, others members or no-members and only need to make one financial transaction for the banquet billing
(this does not include your hotel accommodations).
Whether you are an ABATE of Oklahoma member or not and you want to register for the event, click on the link below. If you are an ABATE of Oklahoma member and not already logged in at the time you click the link below, you will be given the opportunity to login once you are at the registration page. During the registration phase, if you are adding "guests", you will need to select "add guest", then type in their last name in the search box to the right, select the member you want to add then hit "save" (you will need to do this step for each guest you plan to add). If your guest is not a member of ABATE of OK, you would simply type in their name in the boxes to the left and hit save. This will provide our personnel with the names of all registered to attend.
If you have any questions or issues, please feel free to contact Bob "Mo" Mobley (405-761-8528) prior to selecting "complete registration".
If you already completed the transaction and noticed a concern, contact me and I will attempt to help you resolve the matter.
Hotel reservations can be made by contacting the Bricktown Hotel & Conventions Center (2001 East Reno Avenue, OKC) directly at 405-235-1647.
By registering on-line, we will have a more accurate head count of how many people to expect for the lunch and banquet on Saturday, as well as already have your name tag printed when you arrive.
On-line registration and electronic payments are handled by a secure system and highly recommended, but you can still register & pay (check or cash) at the
sign-in desk at the convention upon your arrival.

The above sign was placed in Tulsa on South Memorial between 34th & 35th streets on the west side of the road. Rick Cassady has been working to get this to happen, and with the help of David Patrick, the city of Tulsa came through on it. Let's all urge our local cities/towns/villages to do the same in our areas! Thanks for sharing Rick and Mary!
Visitors can browse our site with limited access. If you are already a member, please sign-in using you login/password to get full access. If you don't recall your login/password, you just need to contact your chapter membership coordinator, who can have the system send you another email with your login/password.
Safety Tip of the Month
(from Jerry Hayes - January 2016)
Always ensure your tire pressure is at the proper levels, your tread is good and watch for road grime (salt, sand and etc)
The Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF), incorporated in 1987, is a membership-based national motorcyclists’ rights organization headquartered in Washington, D.C. The MRF monitors and when necessary, sways federal legislation and regulatory action that pertains to street riders. The MRF concerns itself with what is going on in the arena of motorcycling safety education, training, licensing, and public awareness. The MRF provides members and state motorcyclists’ rights organizations with direction and information to protect motorcyclists’ rights and motorcycling. The MRF sponsors annual regional and national educational seminars for motorcyclists’ rights activists and publishes a bi-monthly newsletter, The MRF Reports.
“To Promote awareness and education in the motorcycle community to improve rider safety.
To educate non-riders globally in the interest of all riders’ safety.”
Let's attempt to get more members of ABATE of OK to join the MRF and get our voices heard, not just here at home, but in Washington D.C. as well!
