We had a great time spending the day at the Bow-Tie Tavern in Sparta two weeks ago.  We were invited and funded by Scheidel Pools owner Dave Scheidel.  Thanks so much Dave.

Dave also brought his 1957 Harley for BBQ Bob to ride which is also the year Bob was born.  How cool and he didn’t even dump it!

Here is the response from Don Erickson who’s wife Kim started the event after her best friend contracted MS.
