Euro Pizza Café, Fountain Hills, AZ
I had picked this restaurant as a place the pack should visit for several reasons.
They serve award winning pizza , have a great location on the Fountain Hills lake and the owner, Merita, opened this restaurant more then 20 years ago also is a friend of mine.
This was my first Saturday dinner I planned. Initially I had only reserved 10 seats because I was told that Saturdays might not be desired and people could possibly not go.

The trip to breakfast started early for me as I felt like I was riding to New Mexico from my West Valley home in Buckeye. The good news was that it was a nice and clear morning with fairly moderate temperatures. Favorable conditions for my 80 mile jaunt to Tortilla Flat!
It had been quite a while since I last made the trip. In the earlier days of the club, we did an annual trip up there on New Year’s Day. Unpredictable weather eventually put a damper on that tradition. In more recent years, we’ve scheduled mid-summer breakfast meetups there, but it’s been a while.

Rustler’s Rooste, Phoenix, AZ
This was my first time visiting Rustler’s Rooste and after reading a few articles about it, I discovered that this is an old time Phoenix favorite so I decided to hold our monthly AZRATPack dinner there.

The thought when selecting Mamma’s Kitchen in Dewey was that the temperature would make for a nice cool ride out then smoking hot back into town. However, this monthly breakfast was set to be a bit different than usual due to this Monsoon season being more productive than the past few years. As the days leading up to this breakfast produced quite a bit of rain & flooding for many of us throughout Maricopa County.

Lo-Lo’s Chicken & Waffles, Gilbert, AZ
Lo-Lo’s Chicken & Waffles is a perennial favorite of mine and enjoy the location in Gilbert even though it’s a bit of a ride for me.
I decided not to take the risk and get rained on, it was monsoony looking here in the West Valley, I elected to take the car equipped with a roof and A/C. The temperatures had risen quite a bit during the day and the humidity hadn’t let up. The Ford was a good choice!

We are happy to announce that Carlos has stepped up to help shape the future of the AZRATPack by volunteering to be on our board of directors!
I’m sure you’ve seen Carlos and his Harley on a bunch of our rides in the past few years and am looking forward to his contributions to the club!
Welcome to the Board Carlos!
The monthly Breakfast meeting was beginning to grow even before the event began as we had over 20 pre-registered participants via AZRATPACK website!
Friendly reminder to pre-register via the website as it lets us know how many people are planning to attend an event. This allows us the time to contact the Restaurant in advance to let them know that a large group will be descending upon them for breakfast on Saturday so they can prepare the appropriate staff.
