Exclamation April Fool's Day cookout

If you aren't following the thread about the weekend state parks ride, you probably don't realize we are having a cookout at our place Sunday April 1st. All our stromtrooper friends (and friends to be) are invited, whether you are going on the ride with us or not.

As it looks right now we should be eating around 2:00, but this is subject to change.

If you think you might come please let us know so we can have plenty of food ready. We will be serving hot dogs, BBQ beef and all the fixins. Post here, PM or call me at 386-774-6954.

We live here:

370 W. Holly Dr., Orange City - We are roughly halfway between Orlando and Daytona Beach, just a few minutes off of I-4


We will not be serving any "adult" beverages and we would like to discourage anyone from drinking and riding, but if you must, you will have to provide your own.

Winnie and the Harley guy Rick will be there. Please let us know what we can bring. We will be arriving directly form Gainesville so bringing a dish is not a problem.

Roesanne e-mail me directly and let me know how I can help.

WOW, looks like I going to miss the event of the year.
Keith and Lou, thanks to both of you for picking up my slack.

We played ball this weekend and I played like a 60 year old.
The team could not jell at all so we finished in the lower part
of the feild. Altho I went 13 for 15 (just have to feed my ego)
we didn't play well as a team.

The cook out for Anne and I really depends on our draw for the
tournament that weekend on the first of April. If we finish early
we will be there. If we finish late, around 4 or 5 I assume the
cook out would be over. I will know more when the schedule
comes out later this month.

Also the cookout weekend Allan is having a big chopper show
on River Walk in Sanford. (Glad I don't have to work that weekend,
altho I am sure it would have been more fun than Bikeweek)
If he can get off he might stop by the cook out, if that is OK?
After all he did buy a DL1000K2 (Blue) last month. But as
always he has not found time to ride it yet.

We also play softball this coming weekend at Alburndale
(the race track) Fields for the Springs Nationals (SSUSA)
PLay early Friday and about mid day Sat and Sun.

Remember the 13th, 14th and 15 of April is the Nature Coast Bike
Fest. Saturday is the $2000.00 poker run and it finishes at Allans
Place at 2pm on the 14th. Bands, Bikes, Food, and Beer.
Sunday the local HD shop will have their big party.
Allans place on Saturday and the HD shop on Sunday.
Several bands and lots of food. Should be a great party both days.
Would be a great time to do the Ozella Trail ride and/or the Lake
Rousesseau Ride around the lake.

"Enjoy life now, tomorrow may be to late"

Mike & Rosanne,

Thanks for the invitation and hosting.
Looks like I will be there as I will be riding from Miami to Eustis Friday after work, working on the house Saturday, and then available for some social activities on Sunday and a ride back to Miami.


PS Hoping for some BE-A-U-tiful Spring Sunhine(not the liquid kind)

Life is short,
ride to enjoy the ride

Charlie - hope it works out that you and Ann can come. Please tell Allan he's more than welcome.

Timm - Glad that you could work it out to come. Looking forward to meeting you.

Roseanne and Mike;
Looks as if it will be just me for the BBQ cookout. Marianne has some plans for the day and will not make the cookout. So you are stuck with just me from the East Coast. Thanks for all of the work putting this together. CYA!!!!
