    The Beer Garden needs YOU !

    As always, the happiest place at the Rally, would like to welcome any and all, old and new, to help in the arduous task of serving beer to 9000 fellow beemerites.
    For any neophytes out there, the BG runs 4 hour shifts, noon to midnight each day, with the exception of Wed. That is 2PM to 10PM.
    Pat Dial, one of the co-chairs, is co-ordinating and slotting times with personnel. He can be reaches at oldxgymnast@gmail.com.

    So, ride safely, come thirsty, and have a great time

    Annie and I worked a few shifts at the BG in Salem. Great crew to work with and it was a fun experience. All the patrons were well behaved and of course you get to spend time with the suave, erudite and handsome MAD DOG . We'll be back if we are able to attend this year's rally.

    Is the "Forum" doing a shift this year? No matter, I'll send a note to get slotted somewhere.

    The one and only time I did this was in West Bend and I have to say, even though it was real work, it was also quite enjoyable.

    Whatever you do, do not let Mad Dog or Maniac know you can count above 5 (by the way I seriously doubt either of them can do so). They'll stick you at the pay table and work you 48 hours straight.

    Math skills

    Now , now Kevin.

    I'll have you know I can count up to 8, as that is the amount of fingers that I have. { Thumbs are technically not fingers} That number satisfies most drink purchases.

    SO THERE !

    That's why we make it easy for you by marking out a tape with ticket quantities denoted.

    Volunteered months ago for beer garden haven't heard a peep since. Don't know when to show up at rally or if I'm supposed to do something or not. Guess I'll just roll in Thurs. and ask questions. What the hay, haven't been to a national since Escanaba.
