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.
