420 Cannonball Run, 4/20-4/22/2019

Author: ufor360  //  Category: Club Rides, General


What: 420 Cannonball Run

Where: A three day extravaganza around the southern Peninsula

Meet at: Alfreds, 402 Puyallup Ave, Tacoma, WA 98421 :: 8:00 AM, Poot Sharp, 9:00 AM

As the sweet aroma of 4/20 wafts in on unexpected spring like days, we will once again be racking up 420 miles over three days and two nights arriving back in Tacoma on 4/22. To avoid being stranded in the wilderness, you will thank yourself for a trustworthy vintage that can kick ass (no chase vehicle) or at least a confident modern 150cc scoot with a rider that is willing to twist the grip. We will have a special one of a kind Rally Bag that will be $20 instead of a patch or shirt.

Monthly Meeting, April 7, 2019

Monthly_Club_Meeting_BD

When: Sunday, April 7, 5:00 PM
Where: Ben Dews Clubhouse Grill, 6501 6th Ave, Tacoma, WA 98406

In the vein of Marvin Gaye “What’s going on”. Come to the meeting and find out. As rumor has it, quite a lot. April is destined to tease us with sunny glimpses of the blue between droplets of translucent mercury while we defiantly cruise 420 miles of the Cannonball Run. And if only the earth were flat we could easily count the number of sunrises until the infamous T-Town Flotilla. And what of the in between? Oh, so much to enjoy on two wheels of asphalt euphoria…! Engage both sides of your gray hemispheres and conjure up some graphics to be resplendently displayed on T-Shirts and patches for the TTF… Its never too soon as time is a comedic beast… As always, new members are always welcome… Just leave your drama in the cave…. Karen?

Poot Poot..!!

What: Bradfords Beantnik Nite Ride

When: Thursday, March 21, 2019, Late afternoon, Early Evening | Stands up at 6:00 PM

Where: Parkway Tavern, Tacoma, WA

From our very own Beatnik, Phillip B.

“On March 21st, Join up on the first full day of Spring for a twilight urban experience in Tacoma. We will be continuing our recent legacy of short, somewhat strange and whimsical midweek rides supplementing our usual mondo monthly weekend outings.

We’ll meet up at the Parkway for a “first Friday” happy hour, and fling our stands up at 6… following the sun down the hill and buzzing our waterfront area neighbors to share our delight in the change of the seasons.
We will find our end point helping make local cultural history with a Beatnik theme at the New Frontier Lounge. We will feature local beat poets, all sorts of west coast chaos and special bop prosody provided by S. F. based Dimitri Matheny…who has promised a bit of Jazz Noir’ for the occasion.

Black Leotards! Turtlenecks! BYOB (Bring Your Own Bongos!) and…all Firkin SC members in good standing are being guested through the door. However comma the bar is not hosted, only Saphilitated.

What: Shaun’s Rubbish Ride (a.k.a. “Toot Sweets”) and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Singalong.

When: Saturday, January 26, 2019. Meet at 10:00, Poot at 11:00 AM

Meet at: Alfred’s, 402 Puyallup Ave, Tacoma, WA 98421

As the tittle might suggest, due to January’s inclement weather and bitter teeth, riding will be minimal. We will begin this quarrelsome affair with breakfast at Alfred’s per our normal template. We will then visit both renowned and established (and one new disciple) of the confectionary trade located here in Tacoma. The magic taffy ride will begin with a visit to the stalwart swirly gum drop tree, Johnson’s Candy Company. After endorphins have been released into the race track of the mind, a circuitous route will be weaved to the Towns crunchy Matriarch, Brown and Haley (we may, or may not have a tour…) With bliss molecules suitably charged, we will descend on the new student of delectable stress relief, Chocolate Tease. Palates can then be cleansed with Adult Pop provided by the Copper door before culminating at the “Box” for the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Singalong.

Mid Afternoon, slink over to Shaun’s House of Honey’s v2 (aka the “Box”) for the candy infused Chitty Chitty Bang Bang singalong. An array of English inspired nibbles will be provided including but not limited to: Tea sandwiches, Quiche, Sausage rolls, cheese on sticks and perhaps maybe a Victoria Sponge cake. The singalong will then enthusiastically ensue..! If you can’t make the ride, you are still encouraged to join us for the caterwauling…

(Note: the “Box” maybe uncharacteristically dry, so please do bring your own adult nectar of choice)

Note: Details subject to change.

Save the Date..! We cordially invite all of our friends in the Scooter community, acquaintances and drunks we’ve met along the way. This will be a catered event with a limited host bar (until a predetermined cash amount has been exhausted at which time it will become a no host bar) at a private location in the Tacoma area. If you are not on the VIP list, hit up your favorite Firkin for the elusive location. We plan to provide hijinks and frivolity, maybe some DIY Karoake, perhaps some live music but mostly swapping scootery tales and engaging in camaraderie (no there will not be magicians or clowns…well, there will be clowns but not the painted big footed ones…)

We look forward to seeing you there and helping us celebrate our 10 Years of existence.
