T-Town Flotilla 2013 :: A Recap

Author: ufor360  //  Category: Club Rides, Puget Sound Events and Rides

An oppressive blue gray gloom like the underside of a vast battleship steals across the sky with the glacial intention of hosting this Friday afternoon while bestowing its gift of effusive drizzle on the already black shimmering asphalt. But not to fear, the joy and excitement of the third annual Firkin Scooter Clubs T-Town Flotilla, 2013 cuts through the misery with a golden sword gilded with expectation and mischief. Sure enough, scooters perspiring like a chilled glass of wine in the height of summer begin to seek safe harbor at the curb of the Parkway Tavern eager to participate in the evenings agenda’s.


The neon lights mock the inclement weather as reflections dance in the puddles while the arriving participants, some familiar, some new, enjoy camaraderie, well-earned refreshment and tasty nibbles before embarking on the Twilight ride around North Tacoma.

Review :: T-Town Flotilla II, 2012

Curse of the Banana Hammock

There’s a squall brewing. A squall of scooters that is!
Friday evening has blessed us with warm, calm skies of blue that sizzle with an
electric excitement. John of the Parkway Tavern in Tacoma has offered us safe
harbor to moor our evinrude like machines for the meet and greet of the Firkin
Scooter Clubs 2nd annual T-Town Flotilla. As 4:30 approaches, scooters
begin to trickle in, weigh their anchors and riders drift into the Parkways
inviting interior to pickup Rally Pack swag from sailor girls Tessa and Renee.
