When: Sunday, June 2, 5:00 PM
Where: Ben Dews Clubhouse Grill, 6501 6th Ave, Tacoma, WA 98406

Guess what’s coming up fast on the back stretch? As if you needed reminding: TTF is on the Horizon and only two months away. Funny how quickly that comes up. The usual smorgasbord of topics to discuss. REMEMBER… bring your artwork to the meeting. Decisions need to be made. We will probably also be discussing the shenanigans of Franks Flaming Geyser Ride and maybe making some plans for Nigel. Remember, new potential members always welcome. Just leave your drama at the Lake.

We’ll meet for breakfast at 10:00 followed by some Putt Putt at 11:00 AM (we’re going to hit some balls..!) We’ll then slink out onto the streets for a little riding and some surprise stops along the way which you can assume will be ball related.. The ride will culminate at approximately 3:00 PM to devour Tapas sized servings of ‘balls’ be they starter, main course or desert balls..!

All are welcome and this will be a rare 50 cc friendly excursion..

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..! “

MEET AT: Alfred’s Café 402 Puyallup Ave. T-Town 98421

This Saturday, King Richard will be leading you on a Crusade to the Isle of Vashon. Rumor has it the Poot off from Alfred’s will be at 10:15 AM in order to board the long boat. If you would like to load up on mead and breakfast before for the campaign, get to the café early – You probably won’t be alone. Deets for the remainder of the ride are currently locked in the King’s secure pouch. All scooterists are welcome sans drama.
