Re: Thanks thread

As has been said before I'd like to thank the attendees. It really sucks to go through the trouble of planning an event and then only show yourself around the mountain.

Re: Thanks thread

I thought the whole raffle was well organized and well stocked, and dinner was pretty awesome! The only thing that made me a little uncomfortable was the language around the kids at high volume during the raffle from random folks in the crowd. Innuendos that won't be understood are one thing, but yelling cuss words repeatedly is something else. I'm pretty sure I took part in it so I'd like to apologize to the parents of the youngsters that were there, that isn't usually the norm at these types of events and I hope it doesn't discourage anyone from bringing their families to the next get together.

All in all I think it was a great event even though I was only there for one night, I really had a great time. I haven't been up to big bear for a socal fest since '08 and I'm glad I was able to get the free time to make this one and see such a great turnout. Hopefully my jeep will be road worthy by the time the next one comes around

Re: Thanks thread

I just want to thank everyone for being such cool people. I had no concerns leaving my camera hanging from the back of my chair while roaming around at the raffle. There aren't many times when I feel I can trust a random group of people, many of whom I've never met, not to steal my stuff...

Ah, didn't know that. I'll have to get my friend to do that for the set his nephew won last year (which still sit in their box due to the US Navy.)

Re: Thanks thread

A huge thank you to everyone involved, my wife and I had a great time! Thanks to Jeeperjohn for taking the lead on the John Bull Run after some technical difficulties. It was nice to meet all of you in person. We had a good run, food was great, raffle was fun... Our only regret is that we didn't camp and were only there for Saturday.

Re: Thanks thread

Thank you Naxja leadership, this event was a blast this year. Special thanks to Parker for stepping up to help everyone get through John Bull safely. Also thanks everyone for showing up, it was good to see some friends from last year that i dont get to see very often.

Re: Thanks thread

Thanks to the organizers: Your leadership made the event a great success!
Thanks Carol, Karen, Jeremy (and gf) for being good sports while we cruised trails Thursday afternoon and got lost

Thanks Geoff for programming my HAM radio so I could ask for directions miles ahead of the Jeep caravan to keep the motos moving fast with Todd.

Thanks Karen for the lunch on Friday's scenic run!

Thanks Geoff for leading the AAT run and letting Todd and I run ahead on the bikes.

And thanks, Master Pull, for having Sam win a synthetic winch line promptly given to my twin brother Tyler for the winch he bought specifically for SoCal Fest!

**Thanks to whomever donated the Shake Weight...much fun was had Saturday night at our campfire! hahaha

And it was awesome to meet lots of new people and their screennames.

Do you really think I'm afraid to admit that I donated something so, well, jerky?
