Full Moon Fiasco XVIII

Super Moon?  Whatever...

When: Tue, Jun 25th @ 8pm
Where: Eichardt's
Theme: None

So, while all the amateur moon watchers will be gazing at the night sky in super moon disbelief, we will do the same thing we do every full moon...ride our bikes!

Couple things.  For those keeping track, the ride is not actually on the full moon.  OMG.  Are you done gasping, wheezing and throwing a fit?  Good.  There is no theme either.  OMG.  Are you about done with your hysterics?  Some changes this month.

First, many of the core FBC Sandpoint members will be doing this little bike race called the "Race Across America" during the actual full moon.  Second, no theme cause we want you to save your costume money.

The plan: we will ride to a destination where we will have FREE beer.  Yes.  What I ask is this--while people are off riding across the country, take a peek at the cause they are riding and raising money for (24 Hours for Hank).  Take the hard earned money you would have spent on a costume this month and the money you would have spent on beer for the night and bring it to Eich's.  THIS MONTH WE WILL ASK $5 FROM EACH OF YOU, WHICH WILL GET YOU A SPOKE CARD AND TICKETS FOR FREE BEER AT OUR FINAL DESTINATION.  Well, nothing is really "free."  All the money we collect for the evening will go to 24 Hours for Hank.

That is all.  See you on the other side...

Full Moon Fiasco XVII in Review

45ish riders hit the streets for this last full moon ride.  We rode through West Sand and down a rather long, dark and mud-puddle-filled alley.  I think we may have lost a couple of "girls" there, not sure, but I did hear some screams.  Anyway, we hippies rode on over to Common Knowledge where Shelby and crew were ready and waiting.  We killed a couple kegs, but they had plenty of back up beer.  Job well done.

The moon came out and it was amazing.  And it was big.  And many people walked out and took pictures.

We gave out prizes.  Best dressed went to Life Time Member for Life Dave, a FBC Spokane and Sandpoint member who attended both rides for the month.  We also gave a special surprise to Julia, a rather new FBC Sandpoint member hailing all the way from New Hampshire.  I'm not sure exactly where that is or what people do there, but I'm sure they don't have rides like this.  We thought she should get an award for being from such a far place and being so rad.

So there.
