Re: Thanks!

Wow, where to start? The BOD, sponsors, and Badlands of course. Anyone that ran in either one of my green groups, you were willing to follow me and do things you might of thought you couldn't. Dan, Stillson, Brandon, Jeff, and Kevin(I owe you for the tie rod adjuster) for gunning and/or helping me in my first time of trail leading. Dan(again) for turning my Fri green into an orange(we had a blast). Rewster("Its like driving up a driveway") for risking life and limb by riding shotgun with no seat belt on Sat. and being a kick ass spotter for my group. Dan(again), Kevin(again), and Samset for hauling my drunk ass to and from the offsite activities. Basically everyone I talked to for the camaraderie. Last but not least, anyone who attended. It was awesome.

Re: Thanks!

I ran with the orange group on Friday. I broke the front passenger side axle in the rock quarry clowning around backing up that double Bump obstacle when you first get in the backside of the quarry.

I put it back on the trailer Friday night thinking that was that but my buddy talked me into running around on the Green Trail for a little bit in two Wheel Dr., Saturday but I did not ride officially Saturday morning with the broken axle.

I put it back on the trailer or Saturday before noon for the final time

Yes, you did. And you should have said something. I have spare Waggy front shafts.

Re: Thanks!

I didnít break until the trail run ended at the quarry and I wasnít sure what broke in the front end.
I was just happy to cruise around after that

Re: Thanks!

By the numbers, this was a huge event and it takes a little more each year. A huge thanks to our sponsors as there is some serious money being thrown at those raffle tickets and that's what it takes for us to pull this off.

Thank you to the other BOD members, who jump in to help and keep me from losing my mind.

I am grateful to everyone who stuck around to clean things up at the social hall or the VFW. The woman that runs the social hall called today and said we did an excellent job and that the place looked great. I think she was nervous about the stereotypical offroading crowd using her facility but we made a great impression - thank you again!

And a big thank you to Chuck who not just once, but twice, has lent me his passenger side seat buckle because I kept forgetting to buy one (I finally bought one now!)

Re: Thanks!

Thanks to my trail leaders who stepped up and made sure the almost 100 rigs made it through the Badlands without too much trouble and my tech guys for making sure all vehicles were safe.

Thanks to everyone who attended, both new people and those that have been coming for years. This was my 10th WF and I have watched it grow every year but still retain the close-knit atmosphere that keeps people coming back.

That being said, I will reiterate what Brad said in that we as a club have a good rep in Attica (as far as I know anyway...) and that is because of YOU! Thank you for treating the social hall better than your own and same for the VFW.

Thanks to the attending sponsors; donating product is cool but shaking hands with the owners is even better.

All in all, it was a great event and thank you!
