Ray's, Huachuca City, AZ
The weather this year has produced some serious ups and downs with record lows and record highs in the books. The initial weather forecast for the SEAT lunch weekend had it looking pretty bad with possible rain and high winds. Good thing it turned out to be about as pretty as the weather can get this time of year...a nice warm day tailor made for a ride around the Southeast corner of Arizona.
This is the first time SEAT has lunched at Rayís in Huachuca City. The restaurant opened in late 2010 and has had a parking lot full of cars every time we have ridden by. Phillip Orth enjoyed his stop for lunch in Rayís and suggested SEAT do a lunch there. Phillip was right on, the food was good, the service was very good, and the price was really good. There are not many restaurants where an enjoyable lunch for two comes to less than a twenty dollar bill. Be sure to go to the Cafť Survey on the SEAT web (www.SEATRider.org) and tell us what you thought of Rayís.
March is a popular month for SEAT membersí Anniversaries. Tony & Tami Ivy, Allen & Diane Moore, Deryle & Wanda Mehrten and Dan & Pam Neal all celebrated their wedding vows in the month of March. Only one SEAT member admitted it was their birthday, Alan Speert, the Metal Man! Although not at the lunch, we would be remiss if we didnít mention Bob & Marianne Muller celebrated their 50th Anniversary in March. Thatís a bunch of years together! Hereís to many more Happy Anniversaries and Happy Birthdays.
The Big Bend Texas ride is coming up the first weekend in April. Great time of year to visit before the summer heat comes in. Be sure to get some pictures for the web site. The AZ Beemers are doing their rally this May in Heber on the Mogollon Rim. May is one of those months were the weather can go either way, too cold or too hot, weíll see. There will be day passes this year. June is the SEAT Overnighter in Alpine, AZ. Make your reservations early. The ride up Old Hwy 666 is always good. Lots more excuses for a ride in Bob Mullerís Rides, Races and Rallies on page 8.
