Yeah, sorry. The ball was dropped on the ride organization last year due to our meeting commitments. It is fixed this year.
Also there are sometimes members who follow in a car, you can jump in with them if coming for the company.

I'm not sure I will be in Dallas.  I also don't ride a motorcycle.  With those said, if I can be there, I'd totally meet you guys at the end of the ride at revolver brewery.  I don't drink beer either, but that place just sounds way cool.

I'd be interested.
However, I was the only participant in Seattle. Maybe we can get a few more riders this year.

Hello all,
Time to start thinking about the Jerry Petillo Memorial Gun Run in Dallas! We will be posting details on the AFTE 2015 page soon, but wanted to see who might be interested in a Saturday motorcycle ride instead of Sunday this year. As more workshops and activities seem to go on Sunday, we thought we would bump it back a day.

Initial thoughts are to rent from eagle rider and ride to the revolver brewery.

AFTE 2015 / Re: AFTE Hitch Plug/Cover
« Last post by Charles Clow on November 18, 2014, 01:23:05 PM »
Hello AFTE Land,
Just wanted to update you on the hitch plugs. I plan to make an order after the 1st of the year. If you happen to be joining us in Dallas in May for the training seminar, you will be able to pick them up at that time. If you are, sadly, not going to be able to join us . . . we will make arrangements to have yours shipped to you.
The hitch plugs fit, either, a normal 2 inch receiver or the smaller 1.25 inch receiver. Please send me an email at if you would like to order one and please indicate which size receiver you have.
That was the good news . . .
Now, the not so good news . . .
Our vendor has increased the price of the plugs. We are now charging $60 per plug. This, however, will cover your cost of shipping in the event you can not make it to the training seminar.
If you are still interested, even after having to dish out a bit more cash, please send me the email with your choice of 2 inch or 1.25 in and make a check out to AFTE HOST COMMITTEE ACCOUNT and send it to:
SW Institute of Forensic Sciences
Attn: Laura Fleming
2355 North Stemmons Freeway
Dallas, Texas 75207
I will be accepting orders until January 1, 2015 and will make one order at that time. Please note that if we receive an email but no check, we will not be ordering you a plug. In reality, if I have received an email from you and no check . . . I will contact you to see if you still want one.
Thanks ,

P.S. No credit cards for this purchase.
