Full Moon Fiasco X

I know some of you have a hard time with the roman numerals, but this one should be easy for you...

When: Oct 29th @ 7pm
Where: Eichardt's
Theme: The Hunter and the Huntee

In a continuing effort to educate the masses about random moon knowledge, we will celebrate the Hunter's Moon this month.  The Hunter's Moon is not brighter, bigger or any different in color than any other Full Moon.  However, the moon rise time is shorter between evenings around the Hunter's Moon (and Harvest Moon from last month).  All this means there is no long periods of darkness between when the sun goes down and the moon rises.  This time of "extra light" each day was used by hunters (and harvesters) to gather their winter food.

Now wake up!  We here at FBC Sandpoint Headquarters are not taking a stand on whether we condone hunting or not...although we do like a good juicy steak.  But we would like to pay a little homage to those that have used this moon cycle to hunt for their winter food in the past.

So, dress as a hunter (ie big game gunner, bird dog, fisherman, etc) or if that image disturbs or is too aggressive for you, come dressed as the huntee (ie bear, rabbit, salmon, etc).

Full Moon Fiasco IX in Review

What time is it?  Full Moon Fiasco recap time....

Last ride featured a Harvest Moon and 40ish riders turned out for the ride.  Great crowd!  We inducted some new members and made some new friends.  Notable, we had some guys visiting from Arizona, some riders from CDA and in a rare timing event some fellow FBCers from Spokane (their ride was Sat night).

For the ride we did had a loop around a round-about, a lap through Larch Park, a spin through Travers and a dash back to the Tamo (Tervan) for some farm time fun.  Thanks Phil for taking care of all of us.

There we had an apple dunking contest, congrats to Life Time Member for Life Marty for being able to hold his breath and find crap with his mouth.  Great participation!

Best dressed was again a tight contest, but Erin took home the prize.

See you next month for some more good times...
