    I know the D2D Counter- Steering Committee is way behind on this... but better late than never.

    As most of you know.. all the swag that ends up in Dawson and given away at D2D is donated. It's time (actually well past time) to thank those businesses who helped us out.
    What I want to do is list the folks who donated swag for D2D12.

    Other inmates are strongly encouraged to add to the list. If you delivered something as a giveaway at D2D, shipped something, or even dropped an item off at Barb's, put the supplier's name on the list. Mr. KHuddy I'm sure will let you know if you screwed things up.
    When the list is complete... we should have a good idea who/where to send out the midnight photo as a show of our appreciation.



    Then..... time to get busy with the thank you(s).

    Suggestions:
    Call those folks up, send them an e-mail, drop a comment on their website, stop in and say hello. Buy something from them! Be creative. These folks need to know that they helped us out and we appreciate their support.

    Makes next year's SwagRaising a bit smoother.
    Thanks Fite

    Just wanted to put a public shout-out for all the cool gear provided on our little "gathering". We don't "need" any of it, so having it just makes the whole non-event that much better.

    Thanks Counter-Steering Illustrious Leader for getting on this one.

    Seems to me that the guy who brought almost all the SWAG to Dawson was the Griz........ Or at least the stuff he couldn't sell.

    I can relate to the need for a vacation.

    Is someone doing thank you notes for the vendors?

    Fite with a tie? Someone missed a Kodak moment. I missed my Kodak moment with him when he was running the grill at school one night. The fire alarm went off and the kids were thrilled to have the Anchorage Fire Department show up for the open house.

    I have no excuse......Just not getting things done.
    So here goes.

    I really want to thank all the Counter Steering Committee members and Gruvers and everyone who jumped in to help pull the wagon that is D2D. Special thanks to Anne and Kevin Huddy who spent their D2D in the Downtown Hotel Conference Room taking care of all the ticket sales, banquet tickets, poker run registration, auction items etc. You two are my D2D heros.

    Every year as the crowd grows, more and more faces from the crowd step forward to help pull the whole thing off. If nobody said Thank Yow during the event. please accept my THANKS....Late as they may be.

    The Thank You letters from Fite and poster size D2D photo will be in the mail shortly.....I promise (right Fite).

    It's probably fair to say Thank You to everyone who attend D2D 2012 also. The friendship, and cooperation from attendees is amazing. Where else could you get a banquet group who just paid big money for a buffet dinner to bus their own table. Only at D2D. Not only bus the tables but carry them across the street for storage! Ask everyone to help recycle bottles and cans, no problem at D2D. I have had comments from Dawson Locals that D2D has changed their ideas of "Bikers". ADV riders are a special group. The ladies group that ran the bar were more than impressed with the kindness of attendees. Not only with their tips but with a friendly spirit.


    And Finally.....A very big Thank You and an apology to Dawson Dick. I know that it takes a great deal of his time, not to mention the chits he calls in each year to pave the way for OUR event. Thanks Dick. And the apology.....As the Banquet MC I didn't get Dick to the mic to welcome everyone to Dawson which he does every year. Time got crunched and the steaks were ready, sorry Dick.

    So until next year, Ride Safe.
    See ya all in Dawson 2013
