On Friday December 7, halfwheel’s editors (Brooks Whittington and Charlie Minato) will be at Tobacco Grove in Maple Grove, MN for a get together we are commonly referring to as halfwheel’s Holiday Party Pt. 1. The event will run from 8-10 PM and it sounds like there will be other industry folk in attendance as well.

On Saturday December 8, there will be another dinner at a private club. Details will be forthcoming for that.

I am honestly not sure what will go on, besides a good time, but we will have halfwheel stickers for those that want them. In addition to stickers, these Lanceros will be handed out to those in attendance:


Later in the month, there will be another get together in halfwheel’s home, Dallas, TX. Once those details are finalized we will publish them as well.
