Safe ride home from the Dells to all...

Hi,

Have a safe ride home today from the dells to all the riders from the weekend! I had an awesome time yesterday.

Randy and Laura et al, thanks for keeping this little get together going. That was a huge crowd we had for breakfast (73 I think i heard)! Wish I could have stayed for dinner but it would have been a late ride home.

Nice to meet the people I did yesterday at breakfast and on the ride.

Thanks to Randy, Laura and all the group leaders for the rides yesterday. The one I was on was quite an experience for me. Didnt know I could make the bike do some of the things I had to make it do yesterday! (could have done without driving through the wet cow manure though...:P)

As you get home, post your safe ride. Keep in touch everyone. Its congregating like we did yesteday that makes great times. I hope this to be the first of many "ride in" experiences.

Glad to have met everyone.
Nancy did not freeze today she put on extra layer of cloth.
Thanks Orrin for the great ride.

Agree... Hats off to George for not only keeping the Fall Ride-In going over the years, but expanding it to include the Spring as well.

Thank you George/Randy for letting me help out. It means alot to me, and is great fun! Thanks Orrin for setting up Friday dinner at MooseJaw Hats off to the ride leaders... I always hear what a great job you guys do at these things. (Thanks Mike/Cycledude, for donating that beautiful Amish made raspberry pie... Pics to follow!

We arrived home safe and sound as well.

What a great weekend! Lots of thank yous to all of the fine folks that made this ride-in the good time it was.

Thanks Orrin for thinking up the whole Moose Jaw idea, and then for doing the leg work to get everything set with the restaurant. Walking in and seeing 60+ people all wearing antlers was a hoot, and a great way to get the weekend started.

A huge thanks to George and Rail for doing the lions share of organizing this weekend . We all know that a successful event like this does not just happen on it's own. Because of all of the behind the scenes work you guys do (before/during/after) people are able to simply show up and know they can have a good time without a care, and thats all because of you two. The WI board's riders are **** lucky to have people like you, as the ride-in and the WI board in general would not be half of what it is without your great attitude, hard work, and generosity.

Thanks to Laura for organizing the Saturday night dinner. ALthough we were not able to be there, the reports we heard were excellent. Again, it takes lots of phone calls and planning to make a group dinner a success, and this one was. Thanks also to those who donated door prizes.

Thanks once again to Java BobU and his 60 quart(?) mega coffee machine. Rail's "Gideon" brew pot was impressive as well! Not sure just who all made the treats we all enjoyed with our coffee, but Betty and others made some fantastic "health food" snacks.

It was so good to see what now are becoming our old friends, and to meet many new ones. We were lucky enough to ave our daughter Amie come and join us for the second half of the weekend, and she was really blown away by the kind of good people she met. She thinks you just might be a good influence on Jen and I LOL .

Our reservations have already been made to attend the Fall Ride-In . Hope to see you all there again.
