January 2018 - I’m
looking back to Look Forward. 2017 was a good year to be an Idler. We had 23
very well attended monthly lunch cruises. An awesome 3 day cruise over to
Chelan where we had good times and great local tours of the area. June brought
us to our 15th
Annual Twin City Idlers car show. The pre-show cruise saw 220+ cars and the
show on Sunday had 550 cars and we handed out 130 trophy plaques. How crazy is
that? With that, we had great driving summer weather topped off with a very
nice Christmas Party Idler dinner that made it an all around great year!!!
2018 looks to be
all of that and more. Our calendar is full of Idler cruise dates and a couple
of long distance over night drives. Remember, it’s only a good time if you are
I hope you’ve had
time and been able to get those things done on your rides you decided needed to
be done this winter. I’ve been finishing things off on the cabover that I
wanted to get done. It was great to be able to take it out on New Year’s Eve
Sunday to LaConner for lunch at the Pub. Still have some things to complete on
the interior to be able to call it “done” not that they really are ever done.
We, as a club, are
still growing in membership. Please join me in welcoming Louie and Jena Pantano
along with Ken and Deke Smith to our Twin City Idlers Club Family.
Please remember to
send in your membership dues, the earlier the better if you want to keep getting
the newsletters and event emails.
Don’t forget the
3PM Saturday afternoon cruise in to the Dairy Queen. There is also a group of
us that meet up for lunch every Friday at the Stanwood Café, as well. Show up
any time after 11 AM and we order at 11:30. If you’re out and about, stop by
and have lunch or if you’re a Saturday morning early bird, stop in for Breakfast
at the Stanwood Café as well. We order at 7AM and are out of there around 8.
You are all welcome to stop at either of these. Remember, smokem’ if you can,
and it’s ok if you can’t… just keep on looking good as you always do!!! Hope to
see you on the road and be sure to wave when we pass.
All the Best,
