Duffer News #18 Hayward Mini-Bus Trip in 1995



ended.  We were now down to 16 Duffers for the journey.
I can't remember many things that happened in Hayward.  Maybe after the locker room and the bar, I'll have more to tell you.  I do remember my motel door being kicked in at 3 in the morning, live minnows flipping around in Stumps crease, Tweedy's team winning the tournament,
Harvey shopping, Farging icehole, guitar music on the limo, Bluto taking a beer to a despondent opponent, the beer trophy being stolen, waiting for Muzzy, and I remember being in a bar where people knew me and there were nature displays by a taxidermist on acid.  I know we spent close to $3,000.  As you can see below, transportation and shelter dwarfed our food and beer bills.  Nobody went to the casino,  We learned something in Green Bay.
*The Limo was a mini bus that had no toilet.  We used 2 liter bottles to avoid pee stops.

The Holiday Inn in Elmhurst was rented for Thursday, and the weekend began.  5 Duffers slept there in one giant bed.  I don't know how and I didn',t ask.
Friday started with a bang.  The bus company said the 39 seat coach was on the way.  We were all surprised to find a 1994 25 seat Limo* with a trunk big enough for 17 hockey bags.. 
Klinger showed up with a terminal case of Diarrhea.  He had a tense ride to the Elmhurst Holiday Inn, where he jumped off and sprinted to the Crapper.  Unfortunately, that is where his trip
