Free Coffee or Brian & Donna Buy Some Friends

Members Attending: (from left to right) John Haff, Dennis Mason, Larry Garner, Rita Garner, Trudy Scott, Victor Yu, Brian Bogardus, Tom Varallo, Hal Scott, Kurt Breitinger, Karen Breitinger, Karol Mason, and Donna Bogardus

For the past 5 years Donna and I have participated in something called the Moss Motoring Challenge, where we cavort around taking pictures of our Miata with one of us holding a catalog cover while stopped near some sign or some “destination.”

Three years ago one of the challenges was “Coffee Shop with a Friend” which we had procrastinated on all year. So on the last Saturday of 2015, we set up a Club event and advertised free coffee to anyone who would come out and have their picture taken with us. David Adcock and Larry & Rita came out to Ridgecrest Coffee Bar in Aiken.

This year, 2018, when we saw “Coffee with a Friend” on the list of challenges we knew we were going to intentionally procrastinate until the last Saturday of the year and make it another Club event. Our previous spot, Ridgecrest Coffee Bar, had shutdown earlier in the year, so we needed a new meeting spot. Then we remembered the Inner Bean Cafe in Augusta, from a Hal & Trudy breakfast event a couple years ago.

Thanks to all who came out.
