What's Been Happening While We Have Been Filming The Pilot For The "Living On The Edge" DVD/TV Reality Series

These past few days have been filled with excitement for the people who live in the Reading area. Filming began on Thursday for the pilot of the DVD/TV reality show ‘Living on the Edge’. Throughout the weekend the crew filmed certain Vietnam Vets Motorcycle Club members in their daily lives. The cameras followed them to their jobs, homes, and club functions. On Friday, July 26th the Vietnam Vets Motorcycle Club welcomed Mike Crowe from Johnson Controls in Milwaukee. Later that day White’s Harley-Davidson in Lebanon, PA lent a pair of 2007 motorcycles to Crowe and Ed Winterhalder, the author of “Out In Bad Standings", for the weekend. Lancaster NBC TV8 was there to catch Crowe riding away on his Harley rental.

Friday evening, everyone enjoyed dinner at The Bar-B-Que Pit in Wernersville, PA, where a crowd gathered for all the excitement in hopes of being caught by the camera. Saturday morning, July 27th, the traffic was slow due to the pack of nearly one hundred Vietnam Vets Motorcycle Club members on their motorcycles heading for White’s Harley-Davidson. When they arrived at White’s the pack was welcomed by a live band and a crowd of more than 500 people. Inside of White’s, Dennis Fritz, the author of “Journey to Justice” was greeting fans and signing books, and Harrisburg ABC TV27 was interviewing all of the celebrities involved in the event.

On Saturday night the Vietnam Vets Motorcycle Club had a party at their clubhouse for area bikers at the Meadowbrook Country Club in Reading. On Sunday, July 28th the Vietnam Vets Motorcycle Club held a picnic at Blue Falls Grove for the Iraqi war veterans and their families. There was a live band and plenty of food as Reading ABC TV69 stopped by to capture the moment. Reading’s own, Frank 107.5 was there to show their appreciation for our veterans as well. As this weekend comes to a close, post production is anxious to begin. The television pilot for “Living on the Edge: Riding With The Vietnam Vets Motorcycle Club in Pennsylvania” as a full length DVD, is scheduled to hit the shelves in your nearest entertainment store around the holiday season.

Iraq, Afghan Veterans Honored By Their Vietnam Counterparts

This is a newspaper article from “The Reading Eagle” that appeared today in Reading, PA:

About 300 people attend an appreciation picnic held by a statewide motorcycle club in Ontelaunee Township.

Berks County, PA - Veterans of an unpopular war from the past honored those from another unpopular conflict Sunday at Blue Falls Grove in Ontelaunee Township.

The Vietnam Vets Motorcycle Club of Pennsylvania sponsored the picnic to show their appreciation for local Iraqi and Afghan war veterans and their families, said Bruce “Fuzz” Terreson, state president of the club.

“We are all military,” said Terreson, 58. “If you don’t support the war that’s fine, but don’t let the troops down. They are doing their job.”











At the Vietnam Vets Motorcycle Club of Pennsylvania picnic are,

Despite the rainy, humid weather, about 300 people attended the picnic, including veterans from other wars and members of the public.

Still, the turnout wasn’t as great as expected because of the weather, so the club donated extra food to a homeless shelter, Terreson said.

The club had been planning the event for veterans and their families for about a month, he said.

“We want to show them we appreciate (their service) and we’ll do what we can for them,” Terreson said.

Two Authors, Film Crew Create Excitement

This is a newspaper article from "The Patriot-News" that appeared today in Harrisburg, PA:

2 Authors, Film Crew Create Excitement

Wednesday, July 25, 2007

There will be lots of excitement between 1 and 4 p.m. Saturday at White's Harley-Davidson Buell, Lebanon, where guests will include the Vietnam Vets Motorcycle Club, two authors and a film crew for a new TV reality show, "Living on the Edge."

The club will be at White's to attend a book signing by Dennis Fritz, author of "Journey Toward Justice," and Edward Winterhalder, author of "Out in Bad Standings: Inside the Bandidos Motorcycle Club."

Fritz's book chronicles his story of being imprisoned 12 years as co-conspirator in a 1982 Oklahoma murder he did not commit and being freed in 1999 through DNA testing. The story of Ron Williamson, wrongly accused in the same rape and murder, is the subject of John Grisham's first nonfiction book, "The Innocent Man." (Movie rights have been reportedly sold to George Clooney, with production scheduled to begin next year.)

Winterhalder, who had been a leader in the Bandidos until 2003, is executive producer of "Living on the Edge," and the concept grew out of his book. They are filming the pilot themselves, having turned down several offers from the producer of "American Choppers," and plan to auction it to TV networks in the U.S. and abroad, Winterhalder said.

As part of the pilot episode, the TV crew will film the Vietnam Vets Motorcycle Club throughout the week, also in the Reading and Philadelphia areas.

The show features a corporate personality or celebrity who will be involved in the lives of motorcycle club members at their homes, jobs and communities. In this segment, Michael Crowe, a corporate executive of Johnson Controls, Milwaukee, will be the guest of the Vets Motorcycle club, according to Bruce "Fuzz" Terreson of Sinking Spring, state president of the club.

The public is invited to attend the event, and the authors' books will be available for purchase. Food and entertainment are planned.
