Page 1 of 4
†††† This was the 10th annual SEAT Christmas Party and it was most excellent!† How we get by on the weather, I donít know, we just do.
†††† Bikes began rolling in just a bit after 10:00 am and didnít stop for three hours.† All together we had 108 signed up (or recognized in the pictures) and the bike count was close to 70.† Thatís a whole bunch of SEAT members!
†††† Just to show our gratitude to all the SEAT members that have come to the Annual SEAT Christmas parties for the last 10 years (and because of the generosity of those anonymous donators, Dave & Jere Fredenburgh) we decided to splurge with nothing but the best - glazed ham and baked turkey.† Beer was by Electric Dave.† His ale was very good!
††††† Deserts, deserts, and more deserts!† Maybe a few more side dishes next year, our waist lines canít handle that many calories!† Thanks to Dick Manning for the traditional SEAT cake! They were all so good!
†††† Special thanks to John Cartwright III, Iron Horse Motorcycles, and Cliff Allison, Cochise Motorsports, for all the terrific door prizes and raffle jackets.† Nice jackets, the Peltons did well!† All the other gifts were donated by SEAT members and their families.† We all really appreciate it.† Thank you!
†††† Santa couldnít do his job without his helpers.† This year we had the best ever, and a few were even wearing leathers!† Thanks to Doris Faircloth, Keri Pelton and Sumaya Frick for being Santaís Little Helpers.† The kitchen crew members were outstanding!† Bev, Jere, Patti, Don, Marianne and all the rest, you were great!† The backyard cleaning crew of Kari and Ron Pelton were right on time!† Appreciate it!† Damned if we werenít all great!
†††† Looking forward to seeing you at the monthly SEAT lunches (and breakfasts in July and August).† Lots of good riding coming up, with a couple of BMW rallies in our five-state neighborhood.† Check out Bob Mullerís monthly Rides, Races and Rallies in A View From the SEAT, our monthly newsletter; and be sure to visit† SEATís most excellent web site hosted by our Master webmaster Craig Littlefield,† www.SEATRider.com.
†††† Santa recognized several SEAT members for their support to the club.† As a token of thanks they were given a cup, hat, or one of our new SEAT sidestands plates or gas pump clips (donated by Alan Speert):† Marina Ackerson, Maynard Hershon, Stan Thibaut, Tim Zierman, Dick Moser, Bob Muller, Bill Schink, Ed Birch, Butch Smith & Bev Grosh, Dave & Jere Fredenburgh, Phillip Orth, Deb Josselyn, Dave Delie.
