We are going to do the Land O Lakes Water Ride. We will go along the Puyallup River and cross over at Clark St Bridge. Stop at Wapato Lake for a rest stop and some pictures then off toward Lakewood and Steilacoom. We will scoot over the Steilacoom Lake Bridge then around Lake Louise and back door to the Steilacoom Pub for beer and food. We will scoot back via Grandview Dr, Day Island and Titlow Beach then it’s off to the Parkway Tavern via the Tacoma Waterfront. We can warm up and have a pint before our monthly meeting at Mona’s.

The meeting will be at Mona’s as usual at 5pm where we will have the new club jackets and 5th anniversary shirts available for pick up. Please try to attend the meeting if you have ordered a shirt or jacket.

Remember to set your clocks back one hour, you know, spring forward, and fall backwards.

When: Sunday, October 20, 2013, 10:00 AM Poot at 11:00 AM

Where: Luther’s Table, 419 s 2nd Street, Renton, WA 98057

(Note: South Enders will be departing from Tully’s Coffee, 764 Broadway, Tacoma promptly at 9:00 AM for Luther’s Table)

Firkin members Tom and Renee will be hosting the Firkingruven ride which reflects a tribute to the historic VW add campaign, Fharvergnugen, with an infusion of the dwindling Oktober Fest. The ride will start and end in Renton with hopes of drawing those of you north of T-Town. The ride will leave Luther’s promptly at 11:00 as we take the back way to Issaquah for the Volkswagen “Fall Fling” at XXX Root Beer, (98 NE Gilman Blvd, Issaquah, WA 98027). We will need to sustain speeds of 45 – 50 mph.

The ride will leave Issaquah at 1:00 – 1:30 with a different route back to Renton ending at the Berliner Pub, (221 Main Ave S, Renton, WA 98057). Again sustaining speeds of 45 – 50 mph.

Get your “Gruven” on and we’ll see you Sunday the 20th at Luther’s Table Restaurant in Renton.
