Part of an episode for the “Living On The Edge” television reality show will be filmed during the picnic. For this new Harley-themed show the Vietnam Vets Motorcycle Club will be the primary focus of the cameras. Crews will be filming in the Reading area for close to one week.

Each episode of “Living On The Edge” will feature a corporate personality or celebrity who will be infused into the lives of various motorcycle club members, spending time with the members’ families, at their jobs, and in the communities they live.

For the Vietnam Vets episode, Mr. Terreson said that corporate executive Michael Crowe will appear as a guest of the Vietnam Vets Motorcycle Club. At the picnic, Crowe will be presenting the first 200 Iraqi and Afghani war veterans with a complimentary copy of a best selling book; either a copy of “Journey Towards Justice” by Dennis Fritz or “Out In Bad Standings” by Edward Winterhalder.

Authors Fritz and Winterhalder have accepted invitations to appear at the picnic and will autograph their respective books for the war veterans. Copies of their books will also be on hand for sale to the public.Fritz spent 12 years of his life wrongfully imprisoned for a murder he did not commit. Freed from prison through DNA testing in 1999, his remarkable story is also the subject of John Grisham's latest blockbuster “The Innocent Man”. The movie rights for Grisham’s book have been sold to Hollywood star George Clooney. Production is scheduled to begin in 2008.

Winterhalder, a high ranking world leader of the notorious Bandidos Motorcycle Club until his departure from the club in 2003, is one of the world’s leading authorities on motorcycle clubs. In addition to “Out In Bad Standings” he is a contributing author to “The Mammoth Book of Bikers” and the Executive Producer of the “Living On The Edge” TV show.
