Doc,

Thanks for the invitation. Joanie & I enjoyed our visit very much. I was glad to meet many of our NW peps and put a face to a name.
A late afternoon flight on Sunday allowed us to visit downtown and Voo Doo Doughnuts. The Max light rail train works well is convenient to use.

Joe..........as I reviewed the banquet I figured that you would have enjoyed the 50/50 drawing.

(Judie Amo sold the tickets and then she drew her own number for the prize.)

I should have had an idea that could happen. She caught more fish on their river outing than all the men combined.

I apologize to Gabe Gorton for not including him in the registration list.

I deposited his money and didn't make name badges.

He doesn't realize that he was allowed to attend without being held

in the stockade overnight for apparently trying to crash the event.

BOY........you just lucky I'm so easy.

  Freud, thank you again for the hundreds of hours of time you have spent over the last decade or so in making this event happen.
  As I look back over the years that I have attended, I have many fond memories of fellow racers (and Hero's) that I have met and listened to many great and entertaining speakers.  I have also been able to match up names and faces, many of whom look a lot different with civies on (or hat's off)!
  Through thick and thin, You Glenn took on sole responsibility for bringing us all together and allowing new friendships to begin, old friendship's to renew, and even some old wound's to heal.
  If this was indeed the Last NW Reunion, the memories will live on for many past and present attendees, but if it continues (as Tony Thacker has so generously offered to back and keep moving forward), I am pretty darn sure you will still be "Acura deep in Alligators" making it all happen!
  Thanks from the bottom of my heart and I am sure that I speak for most of us LSR afficianatos (?) in wishing to be greeted by you at the door for many more NW Reunions to come.                                                                                           Bob Drury

p.s.  Thanks to Dan and Joanie Warner for  helping make this a wonderful event, and I hope the bottle made it through Security!

CORRECTION
Judy actually drew one of Joe's numbers.

It was as always a great gathering of racers, and had a lot of the 2 Club members in attendance.  Thanks for the support from all and thanks Freud for putting this thing on.

Thanks for supporting the Ladies Auxillary.  I know how valuable their contribution to racing is when there is an incident.  

The meal was outstanding, wish those guys could cook for the Club Banquet!  :-D

Dang One Run weighed Johnboy and me entering and leaving... accurate scale, I don't know how it detected the difference in the Gates Ball we took for Sarah and his wallet  :evil:  :-D

  Stainless, I just got back from the Vet who retrieved from Sarah's (my Golden Retreiver) stomach: one Gates ball, a bigger ball made of pretzles, potato chips, beer caps, and a map of Vancouver.
  Also, she now barks with a accent that sounds like a combination of you and Stan Back arguing the merits of roadster's.
  Oh yeah, next year John Boy should drive us to lunch... you can still pay though.                      One Run, out.................

Bob, as always glad you didn't notice it was your Visa I used to pay for lunch... I managed to get your card out before you retrieved your wallet  :evil:  Not to worry though, I gave it to the homeless guy at the bottom of the freeway ramp and told him to get a hot meal and a cold beer... he promised he wouldn't use it on a hooker

Try feeding Sarah every now and then, she got all those snacks because she gave everyone the "hungry sad face"  :-D

Back to subject  :cheers:

It was easy to overlook an acknowledgement of my right hand assistant when I mentioned people at the banquet.

WHO was that?

RAY the RAT !!  That's who.

Sets up the projectors, brings a slide show that ran between the time the doors opened until the meal was served.

Did all of the foto shoot at the banquet and posts to on the website.

Fixes my printers, arranges for the new home for Rufus and is always available for consulting and guidance.

RAY........THANKS SO MUCH.

THANKS to the internet I need not move to UTAH to have you hold my hand.

Not a problem Freud, I should have double checked with you prior to the event to make sure you had my name down.  Thank you putting on a great event and of course, letting me stay!  It was great meeting a lot of really amazing people.

The Master Craftsman, One Run Bob, made a helmet for Stan Back.

I'll post the only foto of it that I recovered from Ray's camera.

Now it's ONB's duty to explain it to this audience the same way

he did to Stan while they were onstage.
