September dinner meeting at DiCiccos Italian Restaurant on Tuesday 9-7-21 @ 6:30 Nees and Cedar
August 8, 2021
Good morning all,
Just a minute here to discuss the upcoming Edison Museum tour this Sunday 8-8. We will start our run up the hill from the park-n-ride lot and the intersection of hwy 168 and Lodge road just east of Prather. it's the parking lot on the right at the hard left turn as you hit the 4-lane. We'll do a collective clutch dump at 9:15am so plan to be there in plenty of time for some trash talk and tire kicking.
I know it's going to be a hot one. It should cool as we reach higher elevations. Dont let the heat scare you out of this run. I encourage you to leave the LBB cars at home and join us in your air conditioned lux-O-barge if you're not 100% sure of the toy making up the hill. I'll be leaving the Jag at home and making the run on two wheels. The museum will be running their steam donkey during the day. I really want to see that thing in action.
Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight at the Spaghetti Factory and on Sunday morning

Thank you Tammy Weber for setting up our August dinner meeting.
Meet us at the Old Spaghetti Factory at 1610 E. Shaw on August 3rd @ 6:30. We be dining in the small room adjacent to the bar. Enter the main door and make a hard right. I'm sure you'll recognize one or two of us bellied up to the bar.
Just a heads up, if we clear 25 people they'll give us a simpler menu to get everyone fed together. Less than 25 and we'll order off the regular menu. Seems a lot of local places are doing this lately.
See you there.
