I would like to pass a thank you for the following.
First I would like to thank my wife for helping me map out the routes, the bision and cooking the meal.
Next I would like to say thank you very much to Steve Armbrust for the use of his property. With out it I don't know where I could have had the barrel race and ring toss.
Anybody else wanting to thank Steve you should be able to send a e-mail to email@example.com
Next I would like to thank Jeff Kerkow for letting us use his truck, trailer and gas for the check points.
Next is Bob Johnson for the help at ckeck point timing and photos.
Thank you Mary Gebben for helping serve the food, and thank you Kory for sharing the on board video's.
I would like to thank the riders for supporting this ride. Without them there would not be a ride.
I know the ride did not have some of the tense moments that the water town ride did, but I don't have the terrain for that.
And I must admit as much as I liked those tense roads I did want to try and put together a ride that evened out the different rangs of riders. As relaxing as it is, it's still a compition and we all want to be competitive. This is the reason I took out the motocross track and put in the ring toss. I knew not all riders would take on the track but all would try the ring toss. Trying to keep all in the ride.
Ever since I first did this ride it has been my favorite because of the laid back fun. Each leg is its own challenge and the you get some time to bs with the other riders before the next leg. It is a relaxing challenge where nobody gets to worried about things. I have always enjoyed the time between legs for the talk sessions. I have not yet decide if I will host this event next year.
