Full Moon Fiasco XLIII

When: Wed, July 1st @ 8pm
Where: Eichardt's
Theme: Independence Day

It is officially summer now.  July will be special too.  Why?  Because it has 2 Full Moons.  Yes 2.  One on July 1st and one on July 31st, which will also be a Blue Moon.

This ride happens to be so close to the 4th, we should therefore celebrate our freedom to ride...and drink beer.

Full Moon Fiasco XLII in Review

Remember how you thought the weather was gonna suck for our last ride, so you stayed home?  I feel sorry.  To the other 150+ people who threw all caution to the wind, the weather ended up being great that evening.

Eich's had the alley opened, and we packed that.  Inside, there was music playing, we packed that too.  Then we left and did a nice little stroll through West Sand.  We did a rather not so nice stretch down a muddy road.  We crossed some railroad tracks.  We rolled Baldy.  And we ended at our final destination, the Eagle's Club.  We have ended here before and it really is a great establishment for us.  Some hang out inside (not sure why), some on the back deck and some on the nicely manicured lawn.  Trike-a-boom provided entertainment.  Thanks to Stephanie and her crew for taking such great care of everyone's hydration needs.

I would also like to say a big THANK YOU to you.  Yes, all of you that went and stood patiently in line for your drink and were very kind and courteous to the staff.  They had nothing but great things to say about you.  It is all the positive feedback that allows for these rides to continue and local establishments to beg for us to come back.

Lastly, a note about the weather.  We don't care about it.  The ride date is the ride date, weather be damned.  Sometimes it is nice and warm and we get great views of the moon.  And sometimes it is wet, cold, snowy, windy and the moon is no where to be found.  We ride regardless.
