Default Moon On A; Lunch in the Middle

Greetings Barners, Thought I would take some time to let you know of
a gathering that will be happening Saturday, May 13th,2017 @ 12Noon.
at the Mt. Vernon Round Table Pizza (115 East College Way, Mt Vernon,Wa
98273). Moon On A Model A Club has members from 5 different counties and
our monthly gatherings happen in Snohomish County.So we figured we should
have at least a yearly gathering further North to give our members who live
up in the "Klondike" a chance to have a meeting a little closer to home. If you
are reading this and you're a Model Aer who lives in Whatcom,Skagit,Island,or
Snohomish County you're welcome to come join us for lunch. Even if you live in Timbuktu you're STILL welcome to join us for lunch. We are Moon On A we are the MAFCA Chapter that has no boarders! BTW if you would like to join us for lunch and drive your A, if you're coming from the South, the Model A convoy is meeting at the Chevron Arlington (7607 204th ST NE, Arlington,Wa)
@10am. See you there. Benny

I will try to attend with one of our Model A Fords. We still have snow looking at us from Lyman hill, located above our home. Klondike? This winter we all got to use our snow plows/shovels.

It would be great to meet you in person and if you can drive one of your A's, that would be great too. Give your sled dogs a rest Benny

Benny, We will be there at Round Table Pizza with one of our A Fords. If it is raining, our trusty Tudor will get us there in comfort. To enjoy the ride with the phaeton, it will have to be above 60 degrees outside for us. And if there are garage sales along the way, then the pick up would be the choice to haul all the treasures with.

Thanks for organizing it, Benny. Great turn out for a rainy Saturday. Including the surprise visit by the CIA. (Camino Island As)

Dick... your hub caps are too shiny.
I'd have rather been with you all eating pizza, but I had the opportunity to spend the morning finishing up the brakes on my coupe. Nothing like crawling around on a cold concrete floor!
It's sitting on all fours again!

Moon on A?

I thought you were talking about putting a Model A on the moon.

I have moon on the brain because my son has recently had a few meetings with Buzz Aldren.
He was the second man to walk on the moon and is the only living man that has walked on the moon.
Buzz has helped my son connect with some guy named Elon, anther named Bezos, and Thiel.
I think they have something to do with Space X/Tessa, Amazon, and PayPal.

Should I ask if we can get a Model A on one of the trips to the Moon?

All of us had a good visit at the pizza place. Good Pizza and company. Afterwards, most of us toured on up to the Gordon Nissan in the I-5 Auto World where we parked our Model A Fords for the world to see. The car show already had about 8 model A Fords showing. We added about five more model A Fords to the count. It looks like in this part of the world, the model A Ford still has a very good following. The majority of the cars at the car show were model A Fords. Thank you "Moon On A" for putting on the pizza meeting. Before your meeting, I belonged to 12 clubs that I had a paid up membership in. After joining your model A group, I am now up to 13 clubs. Spreading myself a bit too thin.....?

13 clubs would be more than I could handle.
I belong to two and attend swap meets and threshing shows, and that keeps me busy enough.

Too thin? NAW!!!. Moon On A was started by people who didn't really didn't want to go to meetings...they wanted to go down the road! Glad you could be with us and thanks for joining! Benny

After our lunch, about 5 of our model A Fords went to the nearby car show located at the Gordon Nissan car dealer located at the I-5 Auto World. Out of over a hundred cars on display, counting our cars, there were about 15 model A Fords displayed at the car show.
