Halloween is always a big biker party weekend. One year, the Discovery Channel film crew arrived at a Dallas Halloween Biker Party (at an outlaw clubhouse, no less). It was a surprise for the club and the crew had to wait outside for proper club escorts. I’ve seen people ride in from other states to be a part of this scene.
DFW bikers have several events to take part in this weekend and one only needs to access Suds and Butterfly’s website to see what’s happening year-round, all over the state of Texas.
Two highlighted events tomorrow will be Ft Worth’s Winos Crew MC (see flyer) and Dallas Scorpions MC Halloween Hoot (this is their 25th year – see flyer). Both events tout impressive DFW clubs as hosts and promise an eventful evening.
Admittance to the Scorpions MC Hoot is the purchase of a $20 raffle ticket that will also provide a chance to win a Dyna Street Bob Harley Davidson (First Prize which you don’t have to be present to win) or a fully loaded Sportster Harley Davidson (Second Prize which DOES require your presence to win). There is a cash prize of $250 for third prize and also requires your presence to win. Scorpions always donate proceeds to various charities so it will press your ‘feel good’ buttons if you don’t win.
Admittance to Ft Worth’s Winos Crew MC party looks to be free (according to their flyer)but they have the evening loaded with activities. They’ll have a live band, cold drinks, food, wet T-shirt bike wash, and the rubbing of shoulders with some of the finest and friendliest bikers in North Texas.
Tomorrow night’s weather is predicted to be rather chilly for us Texans, but we all know, that’s like throwing down the gauntlet to some riders. They won’t be dissuaded to ride, rather than ‘cage it’. Oh no! They’ll take the opportunity to don their cold weather leathers and all but pound their chests upon their arrival at the clubhouse. However, whatever merry making events Dallas bikers choose to attend tomorrow, two wheels, three wheels and even cages are welcomed to attend. Just make sure you don’t park your cage in ‘bike parking areas’.
As for Snoopy and I, Snoopy had a visit to the hospital which re-enforced the message we have to slow down a little, but we plan to be out and about this weekend and hope to see you at one of these clubhouses. As always, come introduce yourself to either of us and tell us one of your ‘riding stories’ – every rider has ‘em. This column has readers all over the globe and we all like to share.
