    Pablo and I are speaking regularly and he is completely committed to running off WF12. This guy has worked hard and has really had a tough time lining everything out.

    Sounds like its BV and the week after RMAR.....heck, maybe I can get a kitchen pass to come over on Thur PM and ride Friday.

    bummer, I was hoping to make this one in July and RMAR. But I can't do anything past Aug 6th (and finding a lift back to NC between the rallies is pretty unlikely too...)

    guess it's time to make new plans.

    :cry

    If it ends up the week after RMAR, then I wont make it...business commitments in UT that weekend.

    Either way, I'll be in CO the week before...just maybe more fishing time for me.

    Pablo83: Hey, my friend, I understand yer up to yer ass in alligators, but I'm one of the ones from way out of state trying to arrange a two week trip to CO for max fun. Unfortunately, I am also one who's youngest just announced her engagement--somebody must have put something in the water this year--and I already gave her the dates I'm OOT, so.....if there's a date shift, let's PLEASE get things pinned down ASAP.

    Man, I wish I could pay you back for all your efforts and hard work by hosting a ride in the Midwest, but fact of the matter is--y'all would be seriously bored! So all I have to offer is my body for you to abuse on the WF rides. I sure hope it all works out for us all. Peace! :D

    I couldn't agree more. My cell phone battery went dead today due making calls for this event.

    When I have a signed booking contract I will let everyone here know first. I know everyone wants details, but if I posted constant updates this tread would read like a Kafka novel, and this thread should be fun, not depressing.

    I know you are all antsy. Things ARE moving forward and I will have a final location VERY soon. Try to keep yourselves together. :lol3

    Dude, no worries. You're the one doing all the legwork and we're very thankful for that. We're all just slightly hyperactive with the attention span of a puppy on crystal methamphetamine.

    Dates: July 27th-29th

    Location: M Lazy C Ranch (http://www.mlazyc.com), Lake George Colorado

    This location is 30 minutes from Woodland Park, not quite as close as we wanted, but it's the same riding area.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I have fifty million phone calls and emails to make. Stay tuned for more details over the next few days.

    I'm glad you saw the neccessity of running B to B with RMAR.
    It's both events together that lured me in from Oregon.
    I do not really care when, I'm self-employed !! :freaky

    Thanks for all your efforts :clap

    And it's a fancy shooting range at that: quick draw, skeet, 100 yd, and I think he said 300 yd also. But they schedule a bunch of different events there, so if you want to use it you should contact them in advance and see what the schedule will be.

    Recent Updates:
    02/08/12 - Date and Location are finally set
    11/17/11 - Dinner
