    Yeah, about that... We entered into negotiations with the BurrosAndDonkeys Local 4680 labor union and they said Rubithon interfered with their annual retreat at the Saline Valley Hot Springs Resort, and they would not reschedule. On the advice of @beno, we even hired the best possible negotiator we could - Shrek himself - but to no avail. Celebrity poses could not even change their minds, as evidenced below . They were just too tough. But, I think we can carry on with Sombreros and Margaritas as appropriate.

    i'll think twice about it, but only if they get magnetic coozies for the swag this year. It better happen for Rock Chef @Rubithon XXX...
    :popcorn::beer:
    I wonder if @alvarorb can make those at ARB DIGITAL.

    Dude if you come to Rubithon this year, I'll get you a magnetic beer coozie. I'll write anything you want on it with a Sharpie.

    Maybe not. While it is @PabloVTA, and his truck, and his donkey, the beer in the MagKoozie is a tall SN Torpedo IPA. There's a chance that could be @MountNGoat 's beer and koozie since his hands were busy taking that picture.

    I need to recruit a co-pilot/spotter. I've got a few in mind but it's early still. Thanks for the encouragement.

    Quite possible I supplied the tall Torpedo. But I do not own any of the magnetic koozies...

    So then it seems to me that @PabloVTA should provide a magnetic koozie to every vehicle that comes on the wagon run. :idea:
