Two weeks to go....

Two weeks from now, sure, you could find yourself watching "Survivor" on TV, and wondering the fate of the free world with the upcoming elections.  But then again, who really cares about such weighty topics, yo. Ok then, grab a beer, and hold on to yer shorts. Why you ask? Because it is the 4th annual Red Wing Ironworks Motorbike Club's Octoberfest party. Our man Bill has been busy at work sculpting the biggest structure yet to burn in ye olde fire pit. Certatain to entertain the masses and those of simple minds. Be there, Oct. 13 at 7 p.m. Entertainment brought to you via Rush River Brewing. Whooa.

This is what tough guys look like....

While on the annual flood run......

Tales from the road: Christian's Ironbutt saga....Whew.

Our man Christian is in the field going westward, but not before completing his first ever Iron Butt Association's Saddle Sore 1000 (That's 1000 miles in 24 hours). His course yesterday was Red Wing to Pueblo, Colo. Christian made it in fine form, and even found the time to write about the experience. He now joins the company of manly men and will earn braggin' rights at the next party. Here, without further ado, is his tale:

What? Fall already? That means Octoberfest/burning something large party....

Yes, it's true, the 4th annual Ironworks Motorbike Club's Octoberfest/burning something large party (we can't use burning man, I think there is a copy right infringement somewhere along the lines....who knows) is on the books for..... drumroll, please..... Saturday, Oct. 13 at 7 p.m. You regulars know the drill: bring your favorite October Fest beer (or for you girlie types, bring your froo-froo drinky crap); swill to your heart's content, arm wrestle, tell feats of great manliness (For example, "I climbed Mt. Everest in flip-flops once."), play lawn darts, and poke each other with pencils. Sounds fun, no?  Though a piano has been offered for sacrifice, Bill will start the structure build soon and it's sure to be......creative if not interesting.  Come one, come all. Location: Bill's house.
