I hate winter. Those that know me, know that. I’m not from this country so I never developed the ability to deal with the cold.
I am developing the ability, however, to stay so busy with boot work and maintenance on the Scooters that it goes by faster.
As for boots, Clara and I have put out some pretty stuff. We have been using exotic leathers and fancy tops to really put out some fun stuff.
As for the Scooters, Billy Joe’s Sporty is on the lift. We are doing a lot to it. As soon as that comes off, I have some work to do with the Pan and the Twinky. All of these will be ready for the show in March.
As for the Club, it’s been strangely quiet. I think the cold and snow has everyone else doing the same. Staying inside and busy with their projects. Getting them ready for the show in March.
The Christmas party was a good time. The weather wasn’t bad so we had a good turnout. It was good to see folks from as far away as Walla Walla and Sand Point. The gift exchange was fun and the smoked Turkey was excellent.
This year calendar was De beaued’. As with most things we do, we get better as we go. The calendar is no different. Larry Eickholdt did a good job. Working via computer with the new printer people. I know it was a pain but he got’er done, and done well. Thanks Larry.
The first installment of my Yukon trip is in this Newsletter. We had to break it up in two parts. It was too much to put in one issue. Thanks to Jay for his work and effort on this Newsletter. He does so much with little credit. Next time you see him tell him what you think about the Newsletter. He always needs input.
Grover should be gathering up bikes and help for the show in March. This show is a big deal for the Club so get involved. We can always use HELP……………………………
In closing 2012 was rough one, for me and the Club. We lost a good one and I lost two of the best friends I ever had. Glad to be done with it. Bring on 2013. We will make it a good one.
Keep the Class in Classic.
The newsletter needs help, both with input and in the nuts and bolts part too. Send input, stories, pictures, tech tips, and suggestions to the Club mailbox at P.O. Box 4091, Spokane WA 99220. If you can help with the nuts and bolts, holler at me - I'd love to hear from you.
