Full Moon Fiasco IX

And we are back to a non-school night...

When: Sept 28th @ 7pm (note new time)
Where: Eichardt's
Theme: Harvest This

Let me make one little have no choice so sit there and read on.  I have been asked several times over the months, "Aren't these Full Moon rides just booze cruises?"  Or some variation of that question.  The answer is NO!  Well, maybe I guess.  We rides bikes under the Full Moon.  It is meant to be social and celebratory.  Some people choose to participate with adult beverages at the water hole while others do not (I counted at least 6 people on last months ride that did not drink at all).  The point of all this?  Come join in on the fun as there is no expectations or specific agenda.

And now an admin comment, "Yes" I know the Full Moon is actually Saturday, but there is a conflict so we will do this on Friday.  Also, note the time of 7pm, this is the meeting time for the Fall/Winter rides.

OK, and back to your regularly scheduled program.  As Full Moon riders you will learn a few things about the moon along the way.  Like last month was about the Blue Moon which is not really blue at a lot of your fellow citizens believe.  This month you will learn about the Harvest Moon.  I can't really teach you everything though, so Wikipedia it if ya wanna know.

Grab some flannel, overalls, straw hat, pitch fork and some boots for this farm time celebration.

Full Moon Fiasco VIII in Review

50ish riders turned out for what could have been our last warm summer night ride.  What a great turn out for our Hawaiian Luau themed ride.  This was the second moon in August, and therefore a rare Blue Moon.  It did not disappoint!

50 riders going through town was a great scene.  As I looked back over the pack, we covered at least 2 city blocks.  A note on our riders this month, we had riders from Lewiston, CDA, Spokane and even a couple from Canada (we now have international members).  Anyhow, we headed through West Sand and back South to the Dover bikepath.  The bikepath just received a new paving and it didn't even seem like you needed to pedal as we coasted our way to Dover Bay.

Once at Dover, Dish was ready and waiting for us.  Thanks to Gary and his crew for staying open late to accommodate us.  We had a couple birthdays and the birthdays girls got the receiving end of a FBC spanking line.  Happy B Day Jame,s Becky and a blond...whose name I forgot!

There was also an impromptu limbo contest and Lifetime Member for Life Tracy got down REAL low.  Congrats.

Lastly, Best Dressed was very difficult to determine.  Our judges had a heated discussion and we decided that we should let the people decide.  What a mistake.  I lined up our 3 finalists: Liz, Tracy and Becky.  As I had the crowd yell for their favorite, there appeared to be no clear winner.  They all 3 looked great.  Obviously, our judges weren't the only ones having a tough time deciding.  In the end, awards went to Liz.  For those keeping track, Liz has been dominating the Best Dressed.  I'd love to see her closet.
