The Crew (CRU) News - October 2018 Edition

CRU members Dan, Sharon, Kate and Cassandra manage the MS fundraising booth.

September was DGR, I-90 and impact!

MS Fundraiser, BBQ and Cafe Racer Show: 

Thanks to our partners at I-90 and Microsoft Give we raised $1665 for the National Multiple Sclerosis’s Society on September 15th. It was an awesome day that incorporated the crowning of the 2018 King of the Cafes with Akshay Awasthi taking the crown and the commemorative Triumph watch, we also hosted a Café Racer show with peoples choice votes going to Nicholas Mayerschoff and his beautiful Crystal White Triumph Thruxton R, with Ty Moore’s Silver Thruxton R pulling a very close 2nd place! I-90 also had some fun rides out for riders to try between hot dogs and hamburgers!


Distinguished Gentlemen’s Ride:

The CRU showed up in force with 15 community members registered for the event and over $5,000 raised with the backing of the Microsoft Give program and strong efforts by Nick and Ty who lead the club in fundraising. Highlight of the day was the post ride bbq hosted by Arturo and the 400 riders in the Seattle ride that combined for over $35,000 raised for the day! 


2018 CRU Founders Choice Member of the year: 

As we wrap up the yearly schedule of events and look at all we have enjoyed & accomplished and we pick the CRU member that most represents the mission of the club and has had the greatest impact. F r 2018 that honor goes to Arturo Lee, not only did he participate in almost every event this year he took the lead on the Old Dog Haven fundraiser, hit 2 of the 3 track events and hosted the post DGR BBQ.  Enjoy the accolades and CRU flask Arturo as you are the finest example of a Café Racer! o
