As always, if you have any question or comments, please contact me at midnight_crawler@sbcglobal.net

Thank you for volunteering your rig and time to this event.

I have already been signed up. So we will be there (wife & I).
I just sent an email to the organizer asking him how we can help. I'll post up when I hear back.
Hi Everyone,

Here is some more information from Richard.

We still have a few openings for this event. Please have each member of your club that plans to attend complete the sign up sheet attached and e-mail back to me by April 20th (Deadline). We will need help mostly with cooking, serving and just asking everyone to pitch in where ever necessary the day of the event. I think we have mostly everything covered. We are asking for extra tents, sleeping bags, etc. for soldiers and thier familes for Saturday night. If you could let me know if your club has any extra they can supply.

I could not attach the sign up sheet, so here is the information he needs. His email is midnight_crawler@sbcglobal.net

I'll be going out for the day to wheel but I will not be participating in the event.

I think the park is close to all but those in the event ...I will be there taken guys for rides
Why wouldn't you participate if your going that day anyway? Its a chance to do some good AND have fun. If i could foot the bill id go...
I already talked to jeff and he said that would be fine. I'm not participating because this is for my friend. I don't want to take her just so she can work. Therefore, I'm just going to go and wheel for the day, if some soldier want to ride with me I'm completely fine with that but I'm not going to make her not ride.
We plan to go and not wheel because my 40 will not be fixed by then. So we are just going to camp.
Wheel the 80!
Would you ask :princess: for me? :)
the level one is just the ranch roads so the 80 would be a great help cause I bet some of the guys would be better off in a truck with A/C ... I was goin to bring my brown 60 for tha reson but it wont be back in time
