    Classy response.


    OOoof. Sounds like there's a turd in the punchbowl or one hell of a misunderstanding. Thanks for tossing it out on the table as it sounds like something that seriously needs to be addressed. By somebody other than me! :lol3

    Sounds like you've got the right mix of guys to get to the bottom of it. Good luck on the sorting. :thumb

    Who made the decision to sell the items that were supposed to be door prizes?

    Some of the items that we got were sized items. It was collectively decided that they be auctioned to avoid for example, a 2xxl guy getting a size med coat. Others were bike specific items. What's a KLR guy/gal gonna do with a farckle for a 1200 GS? :deal

    Proceeds of all auctioned items go to the charity sponsored that year or perhaps towards the food on your plate.

    All the decisions we make for the collective are made with what's best for everyone in mind folks! :freaky

    Was this year better then last? Can't tell ya cause it was a rare and last missed event for me but I'm told yes it was. And I can assure everyone that were gonna strive to make 2015 even better yet! :clap

    If I recall correctly, immediately following that quote they impaled Jack Nicholson on a flag from their homeworld. I do appreciate the effort though :rofl

    Just where is 7300 Old Seward? I'm interested in introducing some associates to your hole but need a little more information. Are you planning to go deeper and when do you anticipate pouring the first load of cement? I'm under some time pressure here and would appreciate a speedy reply. Oh, yeah is it big enough to accommodate a Lincoln Town car, a little heavy in the trunk.

    I don't know what these big boxes do, but they look important!

    Those boxes are footing frame work for point loads....post locations that bear the weight of roof, walls etc.
    Will be interesting to watch the progress.
    Any concept/elevation images to share?

    Original plan was for November, but we're hoping to be open for business by February. Moving is going to be a lot of fun in January :puke1

    So this place is going to be big. Really, really big. We've been talking numbers for a while; 27,000 square feet up from our current 7000, 8000 square feet of space for bikes instead of our current 1400. Sounds pretty big.

    None of that matters when you actually go stand by the building.

    Seriously, go take a stroll by when you get a chance; Old Seward and 73rd across from Mexico in Alaska.
