In 1947, a man by the name of George Harris Tucker formed the original Old Coots on Scoots for the sole purpose of just riding and
having fun with friends. It was short lived as George died in 1951, but in 1984 his son Dan restarted the group, which grew to over
60 chapters throughout the United States and Canada, and even chapters in Scotland, Czech Republic and France. In April 2011, Daniel
passed away. Daniel's son, Dave Allen, has now taken over as head of the OCOS chapters.
We are Chapter 32 from the Myrtle Beach area,
also known as The Beach Boys. In 2006, our chapter was started by a few Myrtle Beach Harley-Davidson employees, including Dee Boyer,
who served as President until he died in December 2008, George Ellison, Sergeant at Arms (who has now assumed the position of President),
Dan and Connie Arsenault. Our group has now grown to nearly 50 riders. Our main purpose remains riding and having fun with friends.
There are no mandatory meetings or rides. The Old Coots on Scoots members meet each Monday at The Beaver Bar in Murrells Inlet for
a lunch ride coordinated by our ride leaders. Occasionally we go on overnight road trips to bike rallies and other places of interest.
These are great ways to get to know other members.
Members must be able to ride safely in a group and should obey the law while wearing
the Old Coots on Scoots patch. There are a few rules, mostly for safety. We just wanna have fun!
