Chicken time…… long story, you needed to be there to enjoy the twists and turns of the Grand Pooba’s thinking. Briefly, current Chicken holder witnessed a chicken offense on the Lasagna run and taunted the possible new chicken holder by cruising past the vehicle raising the chicken as he went past…. Due to the taunting, the grand poobah kept the chicken in current hands!
NO MEETING AT MIMI’S DECEMBER AND JANUARY - DECEMBER WE ARE AT RUDY’S HIDEAWAY FOR THE CHRISTMAS BANQUET.
