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..! “
