How We Started
The Iron Order Motorcycle Club originated in Jeffersonville, IN on July 4, 2004 by 8 strong willed men (Carl Janisch (Iceman); Rick LeBlanc (Big Rick); Stephen Folicman (Doc); Joseph Loiacano (Professor); Kenny Scalf (Chief); Jeff Disney (Bad Dog); Joe Ball (Copper), and Willie Ball (no relation to Joe Ball). seeking a Brotherhood that only a Motorcycle Club can provide. These bikers came from different backgrounds and walks of life. They had a desire to share Brotherhood and socialize together as a group of men sharing a like mindset with the iron resolve to have a club of their own that would be under no one’s control or direction. It is fitting that our club anniversary is celebrated on the same day as our great country’s Independence Day.
We have learned many things about the MC world and ourselves since our inception. We realize that we are not perfect, and we do not claim to be. We make no apologies for who we are and what we believe in. We respect all clubs and support those that support us. We are an independent and neutral Motorcycle Club, and we mind our own business. We started that way and we will continue that way. We run our club by the very same MC traditions established over 50 years ago by motorcycle clubs. We are not 1%ers, nor are we a riding club and we are not a HOG chapter. We are a three piece patch Motorcycle Club. We have a strong Brotherhood between all our chapters. Hence, we believe in My Brother Before Me (MBBM); our Brotherhood is like a family.
The IOMC is completely independent and bound to no one. We follow our own destiny, truly free from all other’s rules and protocols. We refuse to be dictated by anyone; who we have as members; where we can have chapters; what we can wear; where we can go; or what we can do. That is how the IOMC was started, how it is today and the way it will be in the future. This is the heritage of the IOMC.
We are what we say we are, nothing more and nothing less. If you are law abiding, desire strong Brotherhood and believe riding a motorcycle is not a solo event, maybe we are for you. If you are looking for something other than what we stand for, then we are not for you and you should look elsewhere. We are constantly asked, “What is the IOMC?” Our reply is simple- read everything on our website and on our chapter’s websites, then come by and meet us, and decide for yourself what the IOMC is and if we are for you.
The Murfreesboro Mafia Charter of the IOMC was founded on March 26, 2011. The founding members were A-Frame, Iceberg, Ratchet, Preacher, and Breeder. These five brothers laid the foundation for the charter today. Still going strong the Mafia continues to be a major part of the Murfreesboro Community by supporting various local charities such as Habitat for Humanity and the Brittany Project. The Mafia also host a 2nd Amendment Ride and Shoot each year as well as collecting donations to support the TN Scholastic Action Shooting Program. We also collect donations and host a ride to support the Kidney Cancer Foundation each year.
