July 7th Meeting Report

OGRES in Marsing
The meeting started at the clubhouse with the presentation of the challenge coins.  All were presented and the Club's direction in the use of the coins was disseminated.  Money was also collected for the new vest patch and the patches were delivered a few days later after they arrived in the mail.  Rip City still owes me 4 bucks for the sewing labor.

The Club then took off for Marsing with Rip City in the lead.  Did you ever read "The Wild Ride of Mr. Toad" from "The Wind in the Willows"?  This ride was reminiscent with Rip City leading the pack to Marsing.  We did, however, arrive safely and had a great meal at the restaurant in Marsing.  We had a great waitress who met our quips and barbs with commensurate ones of her own which added to the entertainment.  Some of us had meals that were really, really, really, really crispy.  The ride back was more serene until Rip City made us all ride like madmen to get past the gravel truck before the two lane highway ended.  He has a thing about gravel trucks.  I didn't ask for more information.

The next meeting is September 1st, 7 p.m., at Bomber's house.  He is hosting a barbecue there for all members and their invited guests.  This would be a good one to bring the wives to.
