NAM  KNIGHTS…Run to the Legions by Miserable George

 Although there were a few scattered showers in the area, the weather was almost perfect for the “Run to the Legions”, sponsored by the Nam Knights of Brevard County. The run started at 359-200-348-1, and ended back at 359, where the live band, “Mid-life Crisis” entertained the large crowd. There was a Bike Show, food, 50/50, a Liquor Basket raffle, dancing, lots of cold stuff to go around, AND,  a whole host of good lookin’ ladies. I mean…what ELSE do you need…??? Folks, if you want a fun afternoon, keep track of the biker events at Post 359, on US#1, just north of Pinto’s Lounge. Remember our troops, and stand up for your country…hope to see ya’all out there soon…

WRECKING CREW…Grand reopening by Miserable George

September 28, 2019, was a busy day for us. It was Post 359 in the afternoon, then, down to Melbourne to the Wrecking Crew MC, for their grand RE-opening of a new clubhouse on Avenue “B”, just off Babcock, at 8PM.

Nice crowd, with several clubs represented. Tasty burgers and dogs were being grilled out front, and several other items were donated and brought in. I tell ya folks….those baked beans were fabulous…something different!!!

There was a toast for all the Bros and Sisters who showed up to support the Wrecking Crew…adult beverages, food, babes, and AC in the clubhouse…good combination for a hot summer night in Brevard County.

We’d like to thank Shawn Marshall and the whole crew for their hospitality…a perfect way to cap off a busy day. Hope to see ya next time…

FAMILY FUN DAY by Miserable George

Family Fun Day at the Vet’s Center on Merritt Island, Sept.21, a beautiful Saturday, included the Great All-American Chili Cook-off. It was the First Responders against the Veteran’s Organizations…a friendly competition between two tremendously  important groups. Who won, you ask…? Well, all we got was “Sandy”…we wish someone might enlighten us further as to which group she belonged to…so sorry, a slip-up on our part. There was food, Doc Holiday, a dunk tank, some games, and of course, you could tour the great Vet’s Museum. I got a chance to see, in person, a section of the U.S.S. Arizona, from Pearl Harbor, 1941. It will be on public display very soon. All in all, a very pleasing day…this event promises to be a very worthwhile one, please keep it in mind. I think it will grow…Thanks to all who participated…hope to see you all next year, and, THANK a First Responder and a Veteran today….

American Legion Reunion by Valgal with Photos by Miserable George

What better way to spend a great day than at Fox Lake Park enjoying the American Legion Reunion hosted by Post 359? Brotherhood was thick at this event, friends that ride gathered with friends that don’t and spent the day talking about old times and new… I love feeling safe and welcome when I go to events where there are a lot of people I don’t know… Everyone made us (Miserable George) feel very welcome… Thank You all for a great time and awesome food! I hope everyone enjoys our photos and if you want some let us know…

EIGHTEEN YEARS WITH the MOB

Man, 18 years….hardly seems possible!!! BUT…Saturday, August 10, 2019, WAS the 18 year celebration of the Melbourne Mob, and, of course, there was a party at the clubhouse on Lincoln Ave., in Melbourne, FL. The weather looked a bit “iffy”, but held out favorably, which prompted the gathering of a pretty nice crowd. SCHD’s All-American Band provided live entertainment, while inside the CH, food was offered, along with the cold stuff. YES…they DID have my favorite…Sandra’s chicken ‘N dumplings…lots of sweet goodies too. The program HAD called for a sort of boob show…not the biggest, but, but what the crowd would call…”the best…!” Alas,no volunteers for that one!! Too bad, maybe next time. I noticed quite a few possible entries, BUT, no go!!!Well, boobs or NO boobs, it was a fun event, and as you can see, we experimented with black & white for a few of the pics. Let us know what you think of it…OK?? Our thanks to the MOB for their hospitality. Thank a vet today, and, stand up for your country…

WMC SEMINOLE CHAPTER ANNIVERSARY by Miserable George

Although the skies looked a bit threatening, and, we did indeed get rained on a little,

the Seminole WMC Chapter’s second anniversary celebration was a huge success…!!!

The Sanford Ave. Clubhouse was packed…!! Out back, the chief cooks roasted a WHOLE pig, along with some fabulous chicken, and this, combined with a huge array of other tasty morsels, made   for some mighty fine dining…!!! Lots of the cold stuff there to wash it all down with too!!!

Did I mention ladies…?? Well, they were there too…!!! Yes sir, Sanford Ave. was rockin’ on Sat., July 27, 2019. I wanna thank Chris and the whole gang for making me feel VERY welcome, and for the fabulous hospitality of ALL the group. They tell me that the party went on until the wee hours, and, I’m sorry, I DID miss a few friends who had arrived a bit later, BUT, this old guy wanted to get home before dark.

Thanks again, Brothers and Sisters for a very enjoyable day…!!!

THREE ANGELS BALL by Miserable George

As usual, this time of the year, weather is a huge factor in the success of an outdoor event, such as the THREE ANGELS BALL Poker Run, which ended at Legion Post 117 in Malabar. This year, the weatherman DID cooperate!!! It was blistering HOT, but, no rain…at least at Post 117…not sure about out on the run, however…!! Nice crowd…over 100 sign-ins, plenty of parking and lots of picnic tables, plus, paddle boats on their large pond. There was bidding on a bunch of prize baskets, door prizes, a  50/50, and of course, poker run money, all donated back by each of the winners…thanks folks. Food was good, and plentiful, with 2 locations for the cold stuff!! Also, two corn hole areas which were busy all afternoon. Thanks too, to Doc Holiday and a solo performer for some (always) excellent entertainment…!! Sorry, I never did get the solo man’s name…I stood the overpowering heat as long as I could, then, I hit the road for home. Good day all around. Hey, support the under-privileged kids of Brevard County through THREE ANGELS….thanks…!

Crossroads Car Show by Miserable George

On the way up to this show, Val and I were pretty worried about what the weather would be when we got there. We hit rain on I.95, and could see nasty looking clouds all around us, but, by the grace of the BIG WEATHERMAN in the SKY, NO rain at the show, out on SR 44 in Samsula…nasty looking clouds…BUT…no rain. It was our first time out there, and, we were really impressed by the huge number of cars, trucks, and motorcycles on display! Admission was free, as was the food offered by the Crossroads Christian Church, on whose grounds the show took place. Mustangs seemed to dominate, so, we tried to present more of the more unusual looking vehicles…nothing against Ford, of course!!! Val likes Jeeps, so they kept HER busy. Me…? I’m a HEMI man!!! All in all, a good show. We put up with the blistering heat as long as we could, then it was off to an air conditioned restaurant for a Father’s Day treat…thanks Val!!! Hey, support our troops, and…stand up for our country…!!!

SPEEDWORLD MOTORCYCLE DRAGS by Miserable George

Sunday, May 19, 2019, was a pretty exciting day for ValGal and myself. Thanks to Greg Baugh, of AMRA, we got on the coveted gate list at Orlando Speedworld, for their motorcycle drag races. Sadly, the crowd was minimal…we don’t know the reason behind that…maybe the weather…who knows. It was beastly hot and humid, and those miserable love bugs didn’t help matters any. All that, not-with-standing, we had a blast…! We toured the pits…got close-up looks at the machines. Did you know that a drive chain for a top fuel machine costs over $800…!!?? And, THAT’s just the beginning…!!! Add fuel, oil, tires, and of course, parts…all at premium prices for a machine capable of speeds of well over 200MPH. Our friend, Don Becker was there, but didn’t fare too well…next time, Don…you can do it…!! I went down to the finish line to try to capture the machines as they hit the lights, but, my equipment fell a bit short….those bikes are MOVING when they cross that finish line…but…we did nail a few!!! Oh yeah, we did meet Jay Turner, NHRA Top Fuel champ, and a group from Pennsylvania whom we were acquainted with. When we obtain the winner’s list, we will pass it on to you. Thanks to Rich Stetson, and the track announcer for giving OSB a plug over the PA system…!!! The wind-up of the program was a bit hectic, as there was bad weather rapidly moving in, but we made it without getting wet. We appreciate what the crew did for us…thanks again guys!!!
