    We could use up to 20 volunteers... to work the beer garden. The list of those who will be there seems a little short at the moment. Gruvers and Team P need to be represented! Did I mention that it is the BEER GARDEN?

    i'm sorry but I can not understand how two of the oldest/most challenged elders, Griz/TheDick are leading the volunteer challenge with some time limitations relative to our self awareness of our attention span, that all of the yunguns aren't just jumpin on board. I am sure your pleas will be answered. I was just really hoping to get a picnic table, it really was not from wanting to do good, oh and did I mention prime camping spot as per Spokane.
    The shitty part is that I am on the verge of convincing the Yukon tourism dept. to have a presence, in which case, I may have to work a bit! I just know as I go forth, that I will do so with all of the help and support of all of my dear friends? Do I have any of those?

    I don't think you're supposed to suck directly from the tap at this gig, Hackster. Might be wrong. :lol3

    I'm planning on being there and assuming nothing crops up to dash my best laid ones I'll definitely be up for some volunteering. Beer garden volunteering is way better than trash pickup too. Yessir. Sign me up as a definite and hopeful probably. :thumb

    HBD, Griz, you ole boot. Does this mean your 15 minutes in the beer garden will be spent settin' and pointin' the drunks back to where the kegs still are? Maybe a little babe leering if the situation warrants? I think somewhere around mid to late 60's you can pretty much get away with whatever you want and nobody else can be really sure if you're doing it on purpose.

    That's a major part of my plan anyway.

    Tom, I've got to go with Legion on this one. We just gave my mother a 'walking stick' and a quick course on how to use it. Or more importantly what to use it for: a pointer; a way to get attention; a way to make way; and a way to make your point. What's the point of getting old if you can't have a little fun? Even if you do accidentally whack someone along the way....

    Put me on the tap list.

    Have I ever told you what a nice guy you are, Tom? Thanks for that, but in reality I'm counting the months until I can enroll in Medicare and I'm closer than Griz.

    I'd volunteer for the Bier Garden duty but I'm not sure I'm going to make it. Hmm, anybody know what they're pulling? Good stuff or am I still looking for something good?

    :D Thanks, Harry, but I think you missed the point. Legion said mid to late 60's. His plan ain't worked for me, i can't get away with nuthin'. :uhoh
    i'm down to days away from Medicare. :cry

    Fite,
    If a pic shows up of you when you were a kid on a KTM, blame it on Griz.......first beer is on me in Spearfish in August........

    Not sure what/ where Griz would get such a photo. I was far from being a kid when I first rode/owned a KTM. Should be interesting.
    Love the Spearfish beer ideee-er.
    I'm thinking around August 1st / 2nd.

    Let me cut in here for a moment.
    As I'll be touring around the NWT and Alaska in June and July, then heading to Redmond for the MOA party, can I work the Beer Garden shift with y'all? I worked a shift at last years rally, and its a busy fun time. I'll also be working First Aid a lot during the rally, and the beer garden will be a good break.

    Huh, First Aid and the beer garden. Sounds like they go hand in hand. :lol3
