North Hampton NH Seacoast Chapter

logo CaptureThe Seacoast Chapter of Harley Owners Group was established in 1985 with 8 founding members. Over the years we have grown into a family of over 500 members. Most of the membership hails from the seacoast region of Southern NH, Southern Maine and Northeastern Mass. We are a very diverse group of people in various jobs and stages of life. Our main goal is to have “RIDE & HAVE FUN”. We are a very active chapter in and around the community.

We are very fortunate that our chapter has the continuing support and generosity of Seacoast Harley-Davidson.  The dealership goes above and beyond for us in many ways.  If you think you might be interested in becoming a member we would love to have you. You can check us out at our business meetings as mentioned below or click on “how to join”

Ride Staging at Seacoast HD in North Hampton

Bill and Arielle have worked out the locations for our ride staging. We will use the far right corner of the main parking lot. If the dealership is closed when we have a ride, we can still use the front area.

Drinkable Arts Glassware Painting Party

Drinkable Arts Glassware Painting Party

In February 2016, former L.O.H. Officer Maria Petit extended an invite to the members of L.O.H. to join in on her Drinkable Arts party. The party was hosted by a representative from the Drinkable Arts company. Ahead of time, the guests were able to choose which type of glassware to paint a pair of: pint glasses, wine glasses, stemless wine glasses, martini glasses, or margarita glasses. Then, at the beginning of the party, the guests were allowed to choose which pattern they would like to paint on their glassware. Finally, guests were able to choose what colors they wanted to customize their patterns with. Check out our pictures below at the amazing, creative, FUN! afternoon we had on a snowy winter day!

2016 L.O.H. Awards and Winners

L.O.H. Pink Razor Award

The Pink Razor award is an annual award given to a male Chapter Member who has gone above and beyond to assist L.O.H. throughout the past year. L.O.H. nominates and votes during the monthly meetings to select the recipient. The winner of the 2016 Pink Razor Award is Mark Melvin! First, as Safety Officer, he always had our back, and all other Chapter Member’s back, and everyone’s back for that matter. His presentations, demonstrations, and knowledge he shared at the Chapter Meetings were innovative and informative. I learned something new each month from those as well as the information in his newsletter. We also selected Mark because of the assistance he provided us in planning the 2016 International Female Ride Day. When I wrote to Mark with this grandiose plan to ride in early May to East Nowhere Maine and beyond, Mark instantly re-assured me we’d have Road Captains available and willing to help. And sure enough, he did, with himself included! He was able to contribute smart, helpful suggestions for the route and was happy to work with me on this brand new ride for the chapter. Additionally, Mark came to our minds for his consistent help with the L.O.H. Ice Cream rides. For the first L.O.H. Ice Cream ride, Mark yet again, reassured me we’d have a route and Road Captains, no questions asked, just pick a destination. This continued for a number of ice cream rides: I asked, and Mark delivered every time. I never had to worry, second guess, be anxious: he was a man of his word. The most admirable quality, that L.O.H. unanimously agreed upon, was that not only did Mark go above and beyond for us, but he was our silent, humble champion. What we saw as going the extra mile, Mark saw as par for the course. And for that, the 2016 Ladies of Harley are proud to present Mark Melvin with the Pink Razor Award!
