2012 Christmas Dinner Party
Our annual Christmas Dinner party was once again at the Spirit Grille in Irving on December 15th. There were 108 members and guests in attendance, the most ever for our club's annual Xmas Dinner Party. Richard Asprey, our Rallye Chairman made sure there were plenty of buckets of beer and a
table full of wine for any and all to enjoy. There were even a few who rode their new Triumph motorcycles. We've been told one in particular had a little difficulty keeping it upright while backing out
of his parking spot right in front of the Spirit Grille. Luckily there was no harm done.
Randy Bauer was busy selling 50/50 tickets. Again, our Rallye Chairman on behalf of Aggressive Insurance donated many Christmas Teddy bears and three Christmas gift hampers to raffle off along with the 50/50 drawing.
Tony & Martha Lewis, owners of Eurosport Cycle donated a Track Day at
Aggressive Insurance also provided all the wonderful deserts. Not surprisingly there were many happy faces after all the
winning tickets were announced. All the 50/50 funds were donated to Ryan in support of this racing next year on a Triumph Daytona 675 provided by
RPM Cycle thanks to Boris Loera.
The Spirit Grille did a great job with the dinner. Everyone seemed to really enjoy what they had ordered. The
staff's ability to deliver 108 orders in just a few minutes was amazing. Our president, Chris Parry thanked the Spirit Grille and staff for their great service and hospitality.
Chris also read a letter from former club president Dean Baker acknowledging the efforts of our
webmaster, George Tuttle. Chris presented George with a beautiful plaque in recognition of his service to the club. Dean is a
Delta Air Lines Captain who moved to Seattle to avoid having to commuting after Delta closed the DFW pilot base. Click here for a copy of Dean's letter and a photo of the plaque.
As the evening wore on toward 2AM one person became so bored (or inebriated) they fell asleep.
