2021- World of Wheels Custom Auto Show-Birmingham, Al.

March 1, 2021
  Finally!! Something to do around here, something that feels a little like normal. There have been NO events at the Birmingham Jefferson Civic Center since the start of this pandemic, actually, I think that last years show may have been the last event there, and since this year marks the 50thg anniversary of the Birmingham show, it was a good thing that it didn't get canceled like the Nashville show did back in January.

2020 Fall Thunder Beach Rally

November 1, 2020
Well the Spring Thunder Beach Rally in Panama City Beach, Florida was canceled due to the Covid-19, as was most everything, but people were holding out hope that the Fall Rally would indeed take place, being so many months down the road, but as the time grew nearer word came out that it too would not take place as the city was denying permits. People were very upset because the hotels were not doing refunds on the rooms that had already been booked, even though what they had been booked for was canceled, so those people were planning on going…

10th Annual Cruising for a Miracle

November 1, 2020
  It was the perfect morning, Saturday, October the 3rd, for a ride out to the Moody Ball Park for the 10th Annual Cruising for a Miracle Car/Bike Show/Auction, where the proceeds went to the Miracle League. Corona kept us from getting to play with them at the Miracle League Ride this year that ends up at the park with the kids; we really missed that, so anything we can do that supports the Miracle League, we're all for. We were glad, to say the least, that they were able to get this event off, but there was plenty of…

2020 Zoo Run Safari for Children's

October 2, 2020
  Well, with all the weirdness, cancellations etc going on everywhere right now, we shouldn't be surprised that it would also affect this years Zoo Run Safari for Children's event, Saturday, September the 26th, 2020. The biggest blow right off the bat was the fact that the Zoo has had to cancel group events for now, so we weren't unable to have our Stars with us or take them to the Zoo; kinda took the wind out of my sails right off, but it is a fundraiser for Children's of Alabama as well so we decided to move forward with…

Sturgis In The Year Of The Pandemic

September 1, 2020
  I'm glad we at least KNOW someone who was able to make Sturgis this year. Our friend Christopher Litteral from the Alabama Law Tigers, set out for Sturgis around August the 7th, headed out to do some PR work for the Law Tigers, tough gig huh! While organizing a PR event in the middle of the Sturgis Rally was a huge undertaking, Chris made it look easy.

I arrived at the Westside clubhouse and the heat of the day was gradually kicking up in the 80s. As I entered the clubhouse I greeted my brothers and sat down to cool off because my truck has no AC and it was an hour-long drive to get there from Huntsville. This poker run of course had 5 stops the first was Saints MC Westside clubhouse, 2nd was Stells Sports Grille, 3rd was the VFW of Florence, 4th was Stagger Lee's Lounge before returning to the clubhouse. Kickstands up was originally timed for 11:30, but later pushed to 12 because…
