Chapter M  began life on May 2, 1983. Texas had 2 Districts , North and South. A year later sub chapters were formed. North was Texas 2 and South was Texas 1, having the state of Texas as part of Region H. The Moonlighters were originally called Chapter M, TX/2.

We believe that the “M” designation was because this was the only chapter in the Metroplex. 

Early members were from the following cities:

Terrell, Lewisville, Plano, Garland, Rowlett, Rockwall, Mesquite, Irving, Denton, Grand Prairie, Dallas, Red Oak, Duncanville, DeSoto, Cedar Hill, Mansfield, Arlington, Bedford, Burleson, Crowley, and Fort Worth. 

In the early days the Chapter Director was known as the Area Representative.  We do not know who were the first few AR’s but from 1985 on we have the following:         

Larry Oswald 1985, 1986

You will note that some years had more than one AR or CD. That occurred because some years the officers changed mid year and some years they changed in January. 

We do have some old pictures and some old newsletters. 

About 10 years ago a letter came out from district that every chapter should have a nickname and a motto. 

Since our rally was called the "Moonlight Madness", it was only natural that we should be called the Moonlighters.  Warren submitted this to district and it has been such ever since. It was a spin-off of our Moonlight Madness Rally which included a night poker run as well as a rally.

One evening coming back from a rally in Wichita Falls, it got quite cool on the way home.  James Skipworth came over the CB and said, "There's a bright moon out, and we're riding cool!"  "Ride Cool" became our motto from this statement.
