I’ve been informed that
this year’s Tanner Jam has surpassed ALL OTHERS!!!!
Iffy weather early in the day didn’t seem to deter attendance at all, as over 40 bikes rode for Tanner after a breakfast at H&D Roadhouse, on SR 520, on Merritt Island, FL. Meanwhile, at the H&D grounds, bands were already started, sales of Tanner items was VERY brisk, and there was a big selection of silent auction merchandise…(thanks David for bidding my painting up to $100 !!) All for Tanner!!
Speaking of Tanner, he arrived with Wild Bill, in Bill’s 1940, fire belching,Caddy-Chevvy! The boy LOVES that car. He may have Cystic Fibrosis, but, in no time at all, he was out back, climbing trees and exploring the huge earth-mover tires next door.
The huge number of bikes soon spilled out of the parking lot, which, this year, featured a bandstand to handle live groups which played for 45 minute gigs each! Big Daddy was there to help with the electronic end of things! Featured bands were:Wicked Garden Gnomes, Undercover, No Pressure, Them Seeds, Loaded Dice, The Action, Rumble Seat, and the Matt Sams Band. Good, live entertainment, all day long!!!
Lots of pretty girls prancing around too, along with super food and drinks. Oh yeah, Debbie Vigliano won a trip to Scotland!!! She was really excited about THAT!!
A big thanks goes out to all the folks who helped make this annual fund raiser a smashing success…Larry and Mo Fallon…couldn’t have done it without you guys, all the H&D staff, and Harry and Debbie, you guys are angels…!! Oh yeah, that parking lot attendant was the prettiest I EVER saw!!! Thank you everyone for a tremendous, fun filled day!!! Ride safe, remember our vets, and…Stand Up For Your Country!!!
