El Bekal Shrine 2018 Illustrious Potentate Larry Griffin

Royal Chariots Shrine Unit

Royal Chariots for WebPresident: John Ludwig
Secretary: Bill Meeks
Parade Director: Terry Conahan
Liaison Officer: John Ludwig

Welcome to the El Bekal Royal Chariots Page

Ours is a group of El Bekal Shriners that formed in 1984. We individually own and maintain Dune Buggies in all types of body styles and colors. These buggies are Volkswagen, gasonline rear engine powered and have chrome or mag wheels, are open air or topless. They all have fiberglass bodies and are street legal for licensing. For many years the Director of Units and his staff had difficulties obtaining open touring cars to carry Shrine officers in parades. Thus, the Royal Chariots came into being.

We carry the Potentate and his Divan in all parades, attend money-raising functions of other Units and Clubs, and any other services required by the Potentate and Divan. We try to have a social gathering each month, which could be a rally, picnic or other type to bring the group and their ladies together.

We meet the 2nd Thursday of each month at 6:30pm at the Shrine Center. Our ladies have their own meeting at the same place and time. If you would like to join us, call the Shrine office to get the name and phone number of a Unit Officer. Initiation Fee is $50.00 and Annual Dues are $25.00. Any new member is also required to purchase and have in good mechanical order a dune buggy within 90 days after joining the Unit. Our uniforms consist of gray and/or white trousers, purple double knit shirt with logo on the back, purple socks, and black and/or white shoes. A driving jacket is also available. Uniforms are purchased through the Unit's Quartermaster. Tuxedos are worn at Shrine formal events.
