Class in Classic!

Hello to All. Hope Thanksgiving was good to you and yours.

The Fall weather as you know has been wet this year. So some of the Gopher Rides were wet. But several were Beautiful. These rides were well attended and enjoyed by many. Large turn outs and lots of Classic Bikes. The ride across the Palouse on a clear day with snow on the mountains is one of the reasons we live here. Spectacular!!!

On Grover’s suggestion we changed a Gopher Ride to support a Poker Run. This particular poker run was to support Spokanimal. Several of us were there, a good turnout. They were doing something different. They did a 50/50 at every stop. I was so proud to see NWCMC members win most of the drawings. Not so much that we won but all the Pots were donated back to the cause. Helped the event be successful. So, Thanks to Grover for the idea. Thanks to those who joined us despite the less than favorable weather. Most of all thanks to those who did a good thing and Really Showed the Class in Classic by donating the winnings back.

The Swap Meet was great fun. We rolled it a little later in the day. Good idea. The big Barn was opened up for us but the weather healed off. Despite Dire forecasts by the TV weather guys the weather was not bad. The Vendors who braved the weather did well. A lot of good stuff changed hands and money was raised for the Spokane Humane Society. Again, having fun, doing a good thing while showing the Class in Classics.

Winter is coming on now. Cold and wet. So we are spending time in the shop. Don’t know about you but we are gonna be busy. Aside from normal fixes and fluid changes, we are building a Pan with Jay. I got a rigid project and a bagger project we have been gathering parts for. Gonna be fun.

It’s that time of year that people should do thing they have been puttin off on their machines. If we can help someone in this we should sharing our knowledge and experience is another good way to show the Class in Classics.

The Christmas Party and Meeting is coming up gonna be a good one. The food is always good, the gift exchange is a Hoot. We will also be taking canned food donations for the Food Bank. So come to the Party bring food and join the gift exchange, donate to the Food Bank. Visit with friends old and young, about parts, projects or whatever .It will be fun.

As always this Party is open so bring your friends and the kids. Till then keep the Tools handy and shop warm.

Keep the Class in Classic.
