Twas the Night Before Christmas



Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the swamp,
There was nada happenin', now thats pretty bad.
The the firepit was going in the same old routine,
In hopes that the Fat Boy would soon make the scene.

the Gators were all nestled down snug in their beds,
While visions of new chrome danced in their heads.
When out in the yard there arose such a racket,
I ran for the door and pulled on my jacket.

I saw a large Biker on a 56 Pan
Wearin' black leathers, a cap, and boots (cool biker, man).
He hauled up the bars on that bikeful of sacks,
And that Pan hit the roof like it was running on tracks.

I couldn't help gawking, the old guy had class.
But I had to go in -- I was freezing my ass.
Down through the stovepipe he fell with a crash,
And out of the stove he came dragging his stash.

With a smile and some glee he passed out the loot,
A new jacket for Hellbone and some parts Soda's scoot.
He patted  Rud's fanny and shook Mega's right hand,
Spun on his heel and up the stovepipe he ran.

From up on the roof came a great deal of thunder,
As that massive V-twin ripped the silence asunder.
With beard in the wind, he roared off in the night,
Shouting, "Have a cool Yule, and to all a good ride!"

Gator Craziness...

Time for some random Gatorishness to brighten up your day... I've been collecting crazy photos again, and it's time to clear my hard-drive and start afresh before the festive season...
Thanksgiving is a big holiday in America, one that we never really celebrated at the MC before, but this year there were one or two festive hijinks to celebrate!
Solde planned a lovely family dinner, where we sat and shared what we were all thankful for. A few of us girls shed a tear, maybe the boys did too... There was also a game for discovering our elf names... We had Figgy Fairybaubles (Blake), Robin Cuddlesocks (Kris), Chestnut Tinselwine (MeGa), Fudge Hollyflakes (Athrun), Frangelico Sugarbuns (Fyre), Carol Glitterspice (Rudh), Garland Mullingcake (Hell), Candycane Shinytree (Lil), Snowdrop Chocolatefir (Soda) and Peppermint Hollycane (Peri)...
There were also a few not so pretty Turkey Day things... We even had some H&H Turkeys...
The fighting at  Shadow Hoard was the first in a series of planned fights between MCs... Everyone took a turn, and it was our secret weapon Peri that managed to make it to the final two...
Then as always just some random Gatorantics... All kinds of craziness over the last few weeks... Ranging from HellBone griefing the sim to Fyre's duct tape moment and even Kris having a case of Camel Toe...
There was just one moment more that should be mentioned... The day the world turned upside down...

On the first day of Christmas... Gator Elves and Pussy!

Tis the season to be jolly, and HellBone found something that made us all laugh at the festive time of year!
If you haven't seen the Gator Elves then you really should not miss out on this - HellBone, Solde, Mongo, Lil and I bring you some interesting festive cheer, with just a little bit of pussy!!
The Photo above is a still from the video, just a taster of the craziness in store, but for the full effect you will need to check out our Christmas message by clicking this link, OR by asking one of us to share the video with you...
Now what did we get for the first day of Christmas?!

Changes and Patches

It's been a few weeks since we last had any positive changes to the MC - people have left and it's been a pretty tense few weeks BUT times are changing...
There have been some important changes, and a new full patch given out this week...
Solde Rothmanay has been promoted... She originally wore the title of MC Event Coordinator, but behind the scenes she was providing HellBone with advice - whether he wanted to hear it or not! She's always been straight, to the point and honest, and has always shown HellBone true dedication, when you add to that the fact that she's a little less busy nowadays, she makes a perfect Vice President!
This left the Event Coordinator position open...
Fyre had been the assistant to the Event Coordinator for a while, but she has proved that she is doing a great job by organising our family Christmas Formal... She really has a lot of ideas and we think she will be great at implementing them... So Fyre too now becomes an MC Officer in the rank of MC Event Coordinator...
We also gave a full patch to Peri this week... She's been through Prospecting a second time, and she has really earnt her patch.
Well Done Peri and welcome back to the family!
