    My new pal John from NYC became John from Dildo, Newfoundland who was an unemployed highway flag person. It went downhill from there.

    But more importantly we all drank a toast to bogthebasher. Hopefully Mary will post up the pic when she and Bob get back home.

    Good times!

    I'll make another attempt this year, but after the problems with SLC, I'd like it if we actually met at the beer tent!

    I had no problem finding folks to drink with and enjoyed myself, but they weren't this group. I stayed where the beer was and had a good time.

    SLC was frustrating, in that I spent more than a reasonable amount of time going around the Beer Tent looking for the group to no avail, only to find out when I got back home that the meet-up had been moved away from the Beer Tent to another tent without notifying people.

    So, if it is possible can we identify a Date/Time/specific-Place? Then, if there is any change if those making the change could post the details of that change here than people could adjust. There were a number of people who weren't able to find the SLC event because it was moved away from the Beer Tent without letting folks know.

    Already getting thirsty.

    Beer tent meet n greet

    Well skibum69, I guess I know who has the 586 number in the anonymous book. Born and raised in Brownsdale. Look forward to saying "How's she goin, me sun" in Des Moines and being understood. You can find me in the beer tent🤣.....once the vendors have cleaned me out.

    Have a great ride from Tuk!

    Ha! you must be talking about the new one as I only joined the MOA last year. Well neighbour, do you know Carm Buttons house on the corner of Buttons Lane and the main road? That is now my house that will soon be transformed into a B&B for touring motorcycles.

    As for the beer tent I'm pouring on Wednesday and from then on I'll be in there drinking. How many bikes with NL plates do you think will be at the rally?

    Guessing your plate will be NL. So I have the over/under at 2.5

    I will take the under.....my plate is NS.

    PS. I used to hide rum under Carm's fence going out the dirt road to the beach. No need to look.....that was 30 years ago and I never leave any behind.

    See ya in a few months.

    And of course the Big Red Dog will be there. Though we're from Vermont we seem to have more in common with our neighbors to the north...
