VROC Reunion Rally 2015: Susan’s Bachelorette Party

[Please note that this blog post is backdated to September 15; the post was published on October 5.]

This blog post continues Day 5 of our 13-day vacation. We are in Eureka Springs, AR attending the annual Vulcan Riders and Owners Club (VROC) Reunion motorcycle rally.

 

We had just unpacked the car, when Vicki H. stopped by.  Bob and I met Vicki and her husband Scott in June 2009 at another VROC rally — the Wandering Wolfman’s Rally held in Richmond, KY.  We hadn’t seen each other since that rally, although we had some contact since then via Facebook and email.  Vicki asked if I wanted to come to Susan’s bachelorette party. I grabbed my purse and off we went.

Our mode of transportation was a trolley that stopped in front of our hotel, Motel 62.

Fifteen of us accompanied Susan to her bachelorette party.

We had the entire trolley to ourselves.

The trolley ride cost $6.00. I believe the pass is good tomorrow as well, given the late hour that the ticket was purchased.  The trolley driver left us off very near to where the bachelorette party festivities would begin.

After dinner we walked to the Cathouse, where we enjoyed more fun and laughter.  I had only my mobile phone with me, with very little charge remaining by the time we arrived at the Pied Piper Pub.  I am happy that I had sufficient battery power remaining to capture a photograph of everyone who attended Susan’s bachelorette party.

There was some discussion as to how we would get back to our hotel from downtown Eureka Springs.  The trolley stopped running at 6:00 pm, I believe.  It was mentioned that we could telephone a couple of the guys back at the hotel to come pick us up.  We decided, though, to find the way back on our own.  We rode back to the hotel in style, via limousine service!

 Susan and the pink limousine

What a surprise when we discovered our mode of transportation back to the hotel would be in a pink limousine!  Pink is Susan’s favorite color.  Well, not really.  You would think so, though, based on the amount of comments and shared pictures Susan receives on Facebook.  I don’t know when or why Susan gets teased about pink.  I thought how appropriate, though, that we would be riding back to the hotel in a pink limousine.

The limousine cost $6.25+tip each and made two trips back to our hotel. Ten of us, including the bride-to-be, went on the first trip to the hotel. When we pulled into the parking lot, we were greeted by camera flashes. I think everyone thought it cool that we returned to the hotel by limousine. Bob was nowhere to be found. I called him on the phone. He was in our hotel room. Someone told me that he had “turned in” a while ago. Given the location of our room in the back of the hotel, we can’t look out the window or open the door to see what is going on.  After I telephoned Bob, he come out front and did see the pink limousine when it returned to the hotel for the second time. The bachelorette party was a good time, full of fun and laughter. I am happy that I attended the party.

Shannon, who gave me permission to use a couple of her photographs, also uploaded a blog post about Susan’s bachelorette party.  You may read Shannon’s account of the party by clicking here.
