Full Moon Fiasco 85

What are you thankful for?

When: Tue, Nov 20th @ 7pm
Where: Eichardt's
Theme: Thanks4Giving

This is our annual ride to collect food for the Bonner County Food Bank. Last year the weather was super shitty for our ride. Surprising, we had a good turn out but it did hurt our total food weight for the evening. We raised 392 lbs of food last year. As a comparison, we had 609 lbs of food the year before that. Our goal every year is to BEAT THE PREVIOUS YEAR'S TOTALS! I would think we should be able to take it one step further this year, and reach our high mark of 609 lbs. So, here is how the evening will go down.

Regarding your money for the evening:

  • Save your dollar donation for a spoke card...you will get 1 spoke card for FREE this month with any food donation
  • Save the money you might have spent on a costume this month, this evening is about giving
  • Save the money you would have spent on drinks at the ride destination--if you bring a food donation to Eich's you will get a coupon for 1 FREE drink at our secret destination
  • SPEND all this saved up money on food items for the Food Bank

Regarding the agenda for the evening:

  • You will bring your donated food items with you to Eichardt's at 7pm (you will NOT have to take them on the ride with you unless you want to) so bring as much as you can possibly handle.
  • You will try and bring food items that are on the following "need" list (although I'm sure they will take others): peanut butter, juice, coffee, breakfast cereal, canned fruit, mayo/mustard, jam, canned meat, canned beans, canned veggies, tuna, pasta, canned soup,and spaghetti sauce.  Do not bring homemade items/canned products, expired items, unmarked cans or anything opened...duh.
  • Everyone's food items will be weighed at Eichardt's and an individual weight list will be compiled
  • The FBCers who bring the most food (as weighed on our precision weighing device) will receive sweet prizes.

Once we have weighed all the food and determined our weight winners, we will load all this food into bike trailers, if you got a trailer or bike baskets bring them, and then we will all caravan over to the Food Bank. Once we have handed over all the food to the Food Bank rep (John), who is graciously coming in after hours to check all our food in, then we will head to our final destination. There we will find more good times, warm accommodations and oh, that FREE beer.

Don't wanna go shopping or haul food around? Then just bring a cash donation. However, you have to bring food in and get it weighed at 7pm if you wanna compete for prizes and the free beer.

Full Moon Fiasco 84 in Review

Well, that was special. Some 70+ riders, mostly all wearing some sort of pink either on their body or bike, came out for our last ride. This annual ride was for boobies in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. All monies for spoke cards and general donations went to the Sandpoint Community Cancer Services. We raised $100 for the evening. Big thanks to everyone for their support.

We did a great ride through South Sandpoint and ended at Beet & Basil. It was a grand night under the Full Moon. Huge thanks to Jeremy and the rest of the staff for staying open later for us. We had a great time warming up, playing games and socializing.

Ahh, fall you have been sooooo good to us...

When: Wed, Oct 24th @ 7pm
Where: Eichardt's
Theme: Boobies are Important

October is breast cancer awareness month. Anymore, it is hard to say you don't know someone that has been affected by this or cancer of some sort. This year in particular has been a tough year for some local folks, and has really hit many I know hard.

So, we will ride for boobies. Because boobies are important. And really, cancer in general just sucks. Enough said.

These rides are fun, however this is a serious issue. And so, we will donate ALL spoke card monies and whatever other monies you all wanna donate that evening to Community Cancer Services here in Sandpoint.

Thanks and wear pink...and maybe bring a few extra dollars to donate.

Full Moon Fiasco 83 in Review

Our last ride featured a clear, rather warm fall evening for a ride. Some 130+ people showed up for our annual "Back to School" ride. Many dressed up as usual. This is one of my favorite rides of the year. We departed Eich's, and made our way up north to Silo.

The staff was amazing as usual, and we had a great time hanging out both in and outside.

Full Moon Fiasco 82 in Review

Some 140+ riders dressed up for our music themed ride. Many people dressed up in concert tees. Rick James made an appearance. ZZ Top was on hand. Even Cher was spotted. It was the first night free of smoke we'd seen in a long time. That was awesome. Our ride involved a roundabout, a nice tour of South Sand and then we wound our way back downtown to our friends at Utara Brewing.

We drew names for the fundraiser to get our new rolling jukebox. Wendy won the bike and Randi won the shotzki. Congrats to them.

Special thanks to Dave, Kristina, Jason and Adina for keeping Utara open late for the festivities, and being great hosts.

Full Moon Fasco 82

Summer is winding down...

When: Mon, Aug 27th @8pm
Where: Eich's
Theme: Rock Your Bike

You should have heard by now, we have been holding a fundraiser to get a new apparatus to provide tunes on our monthly rides. If not, you can read about it HERE. We will be selling raffle tickets (and taking general donations) for the bike and Shotz Ski before the ride at Eich's. Then we will draw winners at our ride destination.

So, in honor of all this musicness, our theme is Rock Your Bike. Now before you get pissed and punch your computer wondering what kinda theme that is supposed to be, let me talk ya down. You know how you have a favorite band? And if you don't like music, well, you should check your pulse and make sure you are alive. Anyways, we all have have that band or music that speaks to us, whatever it may be. So, represent that on the ride. Concert shirts, KISS makeup, band patches, MC Hammer pants, big hair...would be some ideas. We will celebrate music as we roll the last ride of the summer months.
