    Thanks to all that have stepped in and made this event happen in a tribute to Rick. I know many have spent countless hours picking up the pieces and putting the rally back together again. A special thanks to Silke, Hunter, Chris, Mike & Robbie and others involved with organizing as well as the ride captains Mike, Todd, Kevin (the fake Kenny), BigDoc, Fe Man,257 Bob, Carmen (aka Fancy Indigo), BackwoodsKLR & Wlfman. I know Candy and the kids as well as the whole Kiehna family really appreciate everyone's efforts and hard work. I look forward to seeing everyone at Rick's Rendezvous!

    *NEW*


    This year we are breaking out some custom made Stainless Steel Shot Glasses, as a tribute to Rick, and to help raise some money for the cause.

    Prices are $5.00 each, or a set of four for $15.00

    Order now, and we will bring them to the Rally. If you want one (or more) but can't make it to the rally this year, we will ship them to you for an extra $5.00 (any amount). Just send a check or paypal to the same address as you would for Rally reservations. Shot glasses will also be available for purchase at the event.
    Send payments to Silke Crombie, PO Box 1294, Mars Hill, NC 28754. Paypal payments will be accepted at ricksrdv@gmail.com

    Anyone who ordered shot-glasses will be invited to our shot-glass invitational on Friday evening. Of course we will accept good Tequila and/or good Scotch as a bribe....

    Please let any of our sponsors that you talk to know, that you appreciate their support of this event!
    Off course, we are always open to new sponsors:norton if you would like to supply door prizes, or help in any way, just pm Hunter aka BDXMPL .


    Things to make your life easier:

    We will bring basic tools, compressor, battery charger, tow straps, pickup truck and ramps etc.

    The charging station for all your smart and not so smart items (use at your own risk - our electrician Kenny is setting it up....) will be at "party central". Just a heads up for all attendees, only two cell phones work at the event site, Verizon and Alltell. But who needs a phone anyway?

    Who do I need to contact to make sure my name gets put on the paid list?

    I sent a PayPal payment on March 10th and I'm not showing on the paid list (at least not on the one listed HERE ) I can forward the PayPal confirmation to who ever needs it.

    THANX

    PS -- It would help to have the Paid list in one of the first few posts, instead of buried deep in the middle of no where.

    Cuttle is handling the "in and paid" list. Shoot her a pm.

    That's a good idea, we'll get on that.

    He left us really big shoes to fill, and it's truly a team effort to get this going.

    A big Thank You to:


    • Rob aka SprinterRS - the best "bro" anybody can have
    • Mike aka ktmMike - the "ride man" (and thanks for getting the thread sorted out)
    • Hunter aka BDXMPL - "location- and swag-man" (I already feel sorry for him)
    • Rob aka Rabbot - "music-man" and much more! (we all owe him big time!!!)
    • Woody - "location- and imput-man" (yes Woody, I will do a flow chart....)
    • Kenny - aka "the real Kenny" kennyanc - "rv- and power-man" (hopefully he's not blowing up your smart phone)
    • Alan - aka Bugsmack - "coffee-man" (free coffee - what a score!)
    • Todd - aka advtenn - "tool- and first-aid-kit-man" (no a bandage will not help for a bee sting)
    • Kevin - aka the "the fake Kenny" KennyBanjo
