The Jury Motorcycle Club History
The Jury Motorcycle Club were founded in the Hudson Falls area of New York in 1969.
The request to incorporate “The Jury Motorcycle Club, INC” was submitted on 6 July, 1973.
The clubhouse is known as “The Tank”, a name which stems from the fact that it is a former oil tank which has been converted into a clubhouse. In the photo below you can just see the motorcycle which permanently sits on top of the oil tank. The motorcycle assists with understanding the significant size of the oil tank. It is understood that the tank was purchased in the mid 1970s from an oil company, before being converted.
The Tank is one of the most unique clubhouses of any outlaw motorcycle club that we are aware of.

The Jury MC Crime / In The Media
2010 – 12 April, 2010. Queensbury resident Michael Benway is abducted as part of an alleged act of retribution after stealing 11 pounds of marijuana from The Jury Motorcycle Club associate Scott M. Thorpe, a known major drug trafficker who was arrested in a federal drug case in 1997. The theft of the 11 pounds of marijuana was said to have occurred approximately 10 years before the kidnapping. Michael Benway was tied up, beaten, threatened with a gun and knife and forced to inject himself with drugs in an effort to make his death look like a drug overdose suicide. He was also forced to write a suicide note. The drugs did not have the desired effect and as he was being transported in a vehicle he was able to escape.
The Post-Star newspaper connected the crime to the Jury Motorcycle Club, alluding that the 11 pounds of marijuana may have been taken from the club. The Jury MC President Alun Reeks, along with Treasurer Greg Jeskie spoke to the media to make it clear that the accused, Scott Thorpe, was purely just an associate of the club, who had visited the club only “3 or 4 times” over a number of years and that the club plays no part in the distribution of marijuana.
