May 2007

Well, another month, another Rally, another success. Turn out was a little down this month do to very nice weather and lots of other things going on, but we still had a nice event, and lots of good times.

BigCountrySG and his family made the journey down from Michigan to join us, and brought along some excellent steaks!!

NovaJoe105 made a 4 hour one way drive from near Evansville, and brought along potatoes, and onions to go with the steaks.

Let's just say that once again, if you left hungry, it was your own fault.

Attendance was the following
Chicksdme2 (thanks a lot Nick)
98Stroke (I think that's Dustin's screenname)
-a friend
severaly local folks who stopped in later to see what was happening.

Chicksdme2 unfortunately wasn't able to bring his new to him truck, and had another commitment to go to, but he did stop in for a little bit, and dropped off some iced refreshment to help us get through the day.

As a change of pace, there were no major projects planned for the day. It was calm and relaxed, although I think not having something to work on nearly gave purduefarmboy460 an anxiety attack. There was a small project accomplished early in the day, and another attempted. Adam and Tamara acetoned the badges that were recently removed from ABOBB's truck, creating some really good looking totally chrome units that will be used somewhere down the road for something. This same mod was then attempted on FordGirlJen83, and truaxfarmgirl's F-150s, but with no results... evidently those badges are made differently.

Pictures were taken.. and I am sure will be posted within the next day or so.

It was a good time and great to meet some members for the first time and hopefully not the last time I see them. Only regret I have is I could not stay longer.

Sorry I didn't make it to this one guys, I got called into work for an 8in water main break and was there till midnight replacing the busted pipe. Hopefully I won't be "on call" for the next one even though it always seems to work out that way.

Adam, we still need to work on your project, I haven't forgotten.

I will have to say the event was a success. I got to meet several members, eat some good food, and have a good time. The 4hr drive was well worth it. Got to go for a ride in Adam's truck. Was very impressed with the way it runs. It launches pretty darned hard for a big azz truck. He got a chance to ride in mine and I think he fell asleep from I look foward to attending some more rallies in the future. Thanks again guys. It was a great time.

What a night!

Well, you are right, it did about kill me not to have projects to work on. Gauges, something at least! Sounds like we will have plenty to work on at the next rally if we get guages for everyone who is interested!!

Big thanks to Scott and Joe for making the trip, I know it was long, but it was great to meet ya!

Steaks were great!!! Not a one went to waste! 18 pounds of ribeye steak! 5 lbs of taters, and 5 lbs of coleslaw!!!

Now, House, where is that coney sauce????

Can't wait for the next one!!
