1. Hey everyone, We’re going to start a weekly email to surface interesting threads in the forums. No worries, you can easily unsubscribe if you don’t find it interesting. If you’re like me, it’s nice to have someone willing to poke around a big community like ours and find the most interesting stuff. Saves time and I hate missing something great. It worked really well when we had someone discovering the best photos for the home page rotation back in the day. And if you have something fascinating to post, maybe this email does everyone some good by getting it noticed. Let us know what you think when you get it. Your feedback will make it better as we go (thread). Thanks! Baldy & rudy1220

    First Sonora Rally that I've missed, and it looks like the best ever. Let this be my first and only!

    Well done Darren, Scott, Rodo, Erin-Lee, Mike J, Eric, and ALL THE OTHER VOLUNTEERS that make our sport so awesome. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

    Thanks Dave!

    It does seem like this year was the best so far. I think Darren is really getting the formula down and knows what the competitors like. And the volunteers are getting it down well, helping make it all go smoothly.

    The photographers are killing it too!

    hey hey here's a link to the set of all 1500 pics I got. I hope I can do a better job next year, having had a chance to see it. But the trick is: Have to get out in the big dunes before the front runners do, without giving away the route :D

    Thanks so much for posting these, Jason - some seriously righteous images there. There's a couple I'd like for a screen/wallpaper - will reach out to you shortly.

    Congrats all.
