When: Sunday, March 4, 5:00 PM
Where: Ben Dews Clubhouse Grill, 6501 6th Ave, Tacoma, WA 98406

We are not thwarted by the icy tendrils of Winter but we welcome the chilly tickle of Spring. The wave of the Rally Season advances steadily growing in size before crashing on the beach of warmer weather. It will arrive quickly and catch us of guard as always. Preliminary plans are being made for the T-Town Flotilla. Remember, never too soon to start garnishing Sponsorship. Are you ready for the 420 Cannonball Run this year with gracious sponsorship from SIP Scooters?We are working on a patch but bring your ideas for consideration. March Ride is on the Horizon and then a full-blown dive into the spring Rallies. (Who’s going to Spring Scoot..?) Bring your topics of discussion and any new prospective members that do not even know the meaning of drama…

Poot Poot.

This Saturday our very own Diane will be leading an early St. Paddy’s day ride. The ride will leave at 11:00 AM heading out to a suitable watering hole in Puyallup. We will then head up to the emerald realm of the mountains to participate in a guerrilla art project which will undoubtedly become part of Tacoma history. The ride will then head back to Diane’s residence where she will graciously feed and water us with Corned Beef and Irish car bombs… The hot tub will be bubbling so bring a towel and swim suit. Crash space available for those that would like to stay overnight..
