The Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club, Miami, Florida Chapter is a registered 501c(3) non-profit organization, which was established in September 2006. We are members of the National Association of Buffalo Soldiers and Troopers Motorcycle Club (NABSTMC), which was established in 1993, in Chicago IL., by Kenneth ‘Dream Maker’ Thomas.
Our membership is comprised of military, law enforcement, firemen, and business professionals who are dedicated to educating the public in the rich history of the original Buffalo Soldiers.
In our continued support of higher education, we award annual scholarships to qualified high school students to defray college expenses. Through our Better Schools Program, we assist teachers by providing them with classroom supplies that will aid in the daily education of our youth. We are dedicated to our purpose of serving the community, supporting other non-profit organizations, promoting safe motorcycle riding, and riding in support of charitable events.
The BSMC Miami Chapter is also committed to forming relationships with organizations, and businesses within the Miami-Dade, Broward and Monroe Counties to enhance and further support our mission. Our Mission Statement, in its most simplistic form is: Educate, Charity, and Ride.
The BSMC Miami Chapter chartered members are: Gerald ‘Slo-Poke’ Tillman, Lacy ‘Blade’ Betton, Carol ‘Swoop’ Tillman (who were original members of the South Florida Chapter), William ‘Steel Bill’ Thompson, Barry ‘Road Rash’ Jennings (d), Allen ‘Gron-Up’ Cockfield, and Sheila ‘SunSloper’ Cockfield.
