Re: WF ideas!

Thanks for the comments on "portion size".
Robie's is a good place. They have worked with us for more years than I been coming here. In their defense, the did offer "seconds" after everyone was served. And, it was announced by Tyler.
Robie's will take constructive criticism just as we will. We can discuss "portion size" with them in preperation for next year.

I also think Robies can work with us as far as location goes for next years dinner and raffle. It seems clear to me we have out grown the VFW. Maybe a place that has our own bartender.

keep the comments coming!

BOB

Re: WF ideas!

i would have to agree on a beginner group.

this was my first time wheeling, let alone driving a truck in the mud.

i honestly had no idea what i was doing. I did figure it out very very quick though.

thanks again for all the help too

NO!

This responsibility fall squarely on MY shoulders, no one else.

That said, yes, we are addressing it.

Re: WF ideas!

maybe a summer event to teach newb's how to wheel?

and as far as the dinner, I don't think that was a problem. It was good food and for a meal of this nature it was fairly priced. and we had seconds, with dessert.

X2 Some of us make it down to Attica on a regular basis throughout the year, Dan. I'd like to hang out with first/second/third timers to get them through things. Even riding shotgun with them would be fun.

Re: WF ideas!

I agree with Dan too. There are a lot of us within a couple hours of the badlands. I need to follow someone who knows the trails a little better though!

Maybe you can just replace them little BBs with some big brass clankers?
At any rate, some of the hang-ups I had in my group were something little like a bit of the wrong line or just turning the wheels a different way. It's good to get these guys a bit more seat time to see the line they want to go and remember where their wheels are pointing.

Re: WF ideas!

I think we need a longer run on Saturday. We start on the trails at 10:00 and then break at noon for an hour for pics and lunch. I would suggest start trail rides at 10:00, break for lunch with your trail group on the trail then meet for pics at say 5:00 or so.

I also think we have out grown the VFW although I dont know where else in town we can house all these people for a dinner and awards. You may talk to Kyle at the Badlands and see if we can use the large barn that we use for Toys For Tots in December.

One last thing, Mission Impossible is over there. We can get at least 2 groups running over there. That property is not ALL hard core it can be a fun couple of hours for a moderate group.

Re: WF ideas!

Ever think about go to a different park?

I'd recommend a old park that was closed, its at Rockport Off-Road park. I remember that park was said to be open to a BIG group. I believe that we certainly will elgibile for that. They even have very nice buildings and overall of the park. Very nice area too. I cant find any info on that park at rorp.com any more but Hannibal Rocks definately is an optional too.

We did that once, in '07 I think, it just wasn't the same to me. I think the Badlands and Attica is part of what makes Winterfest so personally I think it should stay put where it is.
