Thistle—A Hail from the Rail

Ann JonesFleet News, Leadline

OFF TO THE RACES  
The Hoover Thistle Fleet and the Leatherlips Thistle Fleet raced indoor go-karts on Tuesday evening, December 10, and a great time was had by all. There were no “serious” collisions and no black flags, according to Fleet Captain Mike McBride, who organized the event. 

PARTY! 
We held our Thistle Fleet #126 party Saturday, January 25. The food and company were great!  We had a bad joke contest, with the kids judging and announcing the results.

The 3rd place bad joke was:
Q: What’s a penguin’s favorite relative?
A: Antarctica (Aunt Arctica)

The 2nd place bad joke was:
Q: What do you call a boy who is alone in the sea with no boat?
A:  Bob

And the 1st place bad joke was:

Q: Why should you never use a dull pencil?
A: It’s pointless.
