Full Moon Fiasco XXIII

It is that time of year again, mmm food...

When: Sun, Nov 17th @ 7pm
Where: Eichardt's (yes, they will be open 6-8 just for fbc!)
Theme: Thanks4Giving II

Holidays are a great time to eat good food and hang with friends and family.  But what might come easy for some, can be a challenge for others.  The Bonner Community Food Bank needs help in fulfilling food demands for the upcoming holidays.  This is where you FBC Sandpoint members come in...

Last year FBC Sandpoint donated 273lbs of food and $100 cash--WE WILL WANT TO BEAT THAT THIS YEAR!  Here we go with dets...

Regarding your money for the evening:
  • Save your dollar donation for a spoke will get one spoke card for FREE this month with any food donation
  • Save the money you might have spent on a costume for the ride, this evening is about giving
  • Save the money you would have spent on drinks at the ride destination, there will be FREE HOME BREWED beer (along with some other beer) at 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) 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 person who brings the most food (as weighed on our precision weighing device) will receive a sweet prize
  • What's the sweet prize you ask?  How about a $50 Gift Certificate to Larson's!!...among other prizes
Once we have weighed all the food and determined our winner, we will load all this food into bike trailers (if you have a bike trailer and wanna help haul, email me ( and then we will all caravan over to the Food Bank.  The Food Bank office will be a little intermittent stop en route to our final destination.  Once we have handed over all the food to the Food Bank rep, who is graciously coming in after hours, then we will head to our final destination.  There we will find good times, warm accommodations and oh, FREE beer.

Don't wanna go shopping or haul food around?  Then just bring cash donation.  However, you have to bring food in and get it weighed at 7 if you wanna compete for prizes and the gift certificate.  Got all that?  I know it is a lot, so you may wanna read it again...

Full Moon Fiasco XXII in Review

Fred and Wilma, a couple Things, Duck Dynasty bros, Wayne and Garth, Superheroes, Scrabble Pieces, Mike Tyson and his lion, a "Samich," Blood and Crip, Vikings...these are some of the couples/pairings that I saw at our last ride.  You FBCers never cease to amaze.

Some 115 riders packed Eich's on a non-school night.  A word on our monthly rider numbers.  Our official FBC Sandpoint count is always done by FBC Lifetime Member for Life J-Rad.  Now she was some sort of savant in 1st grade and her counting skills are second to none.  In addition, she does not drink.  Therefore, she is the best and most reliable person for this job...I've seen some of you others try.  Anyway, back to the ride...

Our sickeningly cute, sweet and lovey couple, that by the way was getting hitched the next day, was on hand for the ride.  They also brought several out of town family members.  Just think, you all will be in someone's family album.

So, we all left Eich's and made our way to the City Beach.  There we did a lap in the round about and then headed down the Sandcreek Path.  We went through the Field of Nightmares, down Hwy 200 for a short jaunt and ended at the Hideaway Lounge.  This Sandpoint staple is not known by many, and therefore, many have never visited it.  So, it was a treat.  Amber and her crew worked like crazy to tend to everyone.  They had the back door open and it was a great night to be outside looking up at the moon.  Weather and viewing conditions really could not have been much better.

Our FBC Sandpoint Best Dressed judges had a real hard time this month.  Ultimately, 2nd place went to the Things and 1st place awards went to Fred and Wilma.

Full Moon Fiasco XXII

Fall is officially here...

When: Oct 18th @ 7pm
Where: Eichardt's
Theme: Favorite Couple and/or Pairings

So, 2 of our loyal FBC Sandpoint members are getting married very soon.  They are one of those just make you sick couples, so damn cute, sweet and lovey.  So, we will celebrate this seemingly weird entwinement or bond that happens between 2 people that makes "seemingly average couples" wanna barf, and dress up like your favorite couple or pairing (note: can be people or animate objects).  Basically, just any 2 things that kinda go together and you like, which may or may not be like the aforementioned couple.

Not getting it?  Let me give you some examples: Lone Ranger and Tonto (people, bromance), Peanut Butter and Jelly (objects, yummy), Bert and Ernie (cartoon people, protagonists), Boobies (on a person but also objects), Bradgelina (people, power couple), Melissa and Christian (sorry, yet another FBC couple that is just so damn cute, sweet and lovey they could just come dressed as themselves)...anyways, you got it now?  Good, get creative.  Or not, come being the only one not putting any thought into what you wear and see where that gets ya.  Prizes.

I typically never jump the gun, but our November ride is gonna have something real special and then we are gonna do something real special...
