Well, another CRAP is in the books.  I want to thank those who attended and sincerely appreciate all who helped out.  Ken U brought the best bacon I think I have every tasted.  Thanks also to Glenn for coming and cracking everyone up.  The weather was great and we had a fantastic turn out.
Thanks again,
John

John, I can't thank you enough for your hospitality. It was great to see the old timers and make some new friends. If there is a "gold standard" for rallies, you have exceeded it in every way. Looking forward to next year! :smile:

Glenn giving MartyL (from the other forum) an award was one of the highlights of Russian bike riding cooperation! Then there was this:

I did want to thank a few folks for the door prizes that were donated this year.  Thank-you IMZ-Ural for the great donations, Weav for giving out one of his books, Glenn H. for the great prizes he brought (and brought the house down as well) believe it or not Glenn is a bit funny when he wants to be :smileywaving: .  I also want to thank Terry Crawford (Crawford Sales) for the oil filter kits (they were really appreciated by those who won them).  I want to thank everyone who came out to support this event....I am humbled and honored to be a part of you guys :wink: .

You guys have to know that during this event the monkey was giving directions to the driver who was completely blind folded through a marked out course.  This was not as easy as it looks!!!!! :ohmy:

Looks like a fantastic time and once again sorry to have missed it this year.  Had a schedule conflict that weekend but will double efforts to make next years.  Thanks for posting the videos!
