Steve,
Welcome to the Oldfarts, er, I mean the Oldtimers. Belly up to the bar, the saloon is open. First round is on the house. Still looking for someone to make sure Gettman gets home safely.

Hey Steve,

Does the name Bruce Lantz ring any bells? He was the B Troop commander in '69. He is a member here and lives on a boat about an hour from me.

Steve, welcome to Dragoon Base. I'm sure you will find a group or two around here to peak your interest.

We got groups for the bikers, border patrol, the rock, B Troop, old timers, two beer limit...

Kick your spurs off and make yourself at home.

Now, about that bier....you just gotta know where to look. Found me a place here in Tacoma, Washington with over 800 imported beirs, many of them fine German brews that will put you under the table quick and in a hurry!
