Colleyville Motorcycle Officer Chuck Tinsman visited the Colleyville Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association monthly meeting on Thursday evening, August 1 at the Colleyville Justice Center. The organization was instrumental in helping raise private funds to pay for the expenses allowing Tinsman to travel to the event and represent Colleyville.
Tinsman told the group that he was by far the furthest participant in the event held in Chula Vista, just South of San Diego. Despite the fact Tinsman teamed up with officers he had never met or worked with previously, he was part of the first place team on both the 2 man “Tow Team” and “Four Man Team”. Tinsman took First Place in the “Slow Ride” and a Third Place in the Individual. Out of the 6 competitions Tinsman entered, he placed in 4.
Colleyville Motorcycle Patrol Officer Chuck Tinsman traveled with his wife to Chula Vista, California which is located about 25 miles South of San Diego, to participate in the San Diego County Motor Officer’s Association Motorcycle Competition or August 5th – 7th.
