Tom_Renees_CarolingRide

Per Tom:

“Hey Firkins!
Now that I have recovered from the green gummy bears it’s time to send details of the 3rd Annual “Firkin Caroling Cruise”.

– Sunday, Dec 18th
– Alfred’s at 10:00 for drinks…I mean breakfast.
– Depart for ride at 11:00
– First stop is BMW Mini
– Last stop is Parkway
– More details on itinerary coming

If Sunday brings snow or ice we will still Carol but will do so by car, perhaps with dirt bike escort if any intrepid Firkins feel so inclined (in Minnesota they would drive roofing nails through old tires – from the inside – and race on ice tracks).

I have a van that can carry 5 plus Renee and I. If anyone has a high occupancy vehicle please let me know. If we must carol by car it would be best to stay in a group with as few cars as possible.

Lastly, for now, whoever has the Firkin banner please be sure to bring it. And don’t forget your Firkin Santa hats. More are available if needed.

See you Sunday!

PS: Renee wants… no needs…another gummy bear..! “

MEET AT: Alfred’s Café 402 Puyallup Ave. T-Town 98421

If you would like to load up on mead and breakfast before for the campaign, get to the café early – You probably won’t be alone. Deets for the remainder of the ride are currently locked in the King’s secure pouch. All scooterists are welcome sans drama.

Monthly_Club_Meeting_BD

When: Sunday, September 4, 2016, 3:00 PM
Where: Jeff and Tessa’s (Call your favorite Firkin for the address)

The meeting will be held at Jeff and Tessa’s humble abode in succession with a Firkin yard sale. This is your chance to load up on the inventory of Firkin schwag as well as an opportunity to unload any items you have that may prove useful to another Firkin member. Please note: all items brought must also be taken away. Our 750 square foot house has no room for additional inventory. Therefore, driving four wheels instead of two may be to your advantage.

The BBQ will start at 3 pm and food and beer will be provided. Please bring a chair if you have one available. The meeting will start at 5pm as usual.

We will also be voting on the location and theme for the 2017 TTF, starting preparations for next year’s 420 (Fireball) Run and before you know it, it will be Christmas. There are still rides on Deck for September and October and maybe an additional run to the Oyster Fest in Shelton the first weekend of October. As always, new potential members are always welcome. Just remember, leave the drama in the dwindling days of Summer.

Poot Poot..!
