    Since Bulldogger has mentioned bringing his radio...

    We will be utilizing CB radios on the trails as the primary method of keeping the groups together, but that we also will be using FRS radios for communications between the groups/HQ/Range... Bulldogger and hrbergeron have indicated that they are bringing surplus military rigs and I know that a couple of other folks who have registered are HAMS who have mil-surplus radios… We'll post the common channels and frequencies at the HQ tent to facilitate folks' talking to each other (and will post online for those who want to chat before they check in at the tent...).

    Just a reminder:
    Our next trail maintenance weekend is scheduled for August 16-18, 2019.
    Attend and help out for the entire weekend and you’ll get a special event t-shirt and half priced admission to the event.

    We made great progress on our last work weekend, but we have a few trails that still need attention...

    Contact me in advance of either weekend to
    verify meeting locations and times and to be put on the Trail Crew list.

    Cool! My radio was shipped today, and is supposed to arrive within a week. I will post details once I receive and mount it.

    Looking forward to this year's rally and have been plugging it locally.

    I just received the proofs for the shirts (both designs...) and they look great. I did have a tweak that needed to be made to each one, so I'll hold off on posting them until the next proof...
    Prices should be about the same as last year for the Event shirt (I will know for sure one the design is finalized...), the Trail Crew shirt is priceless (you just need to give me a gallon of sweat...).

    Trying my best to get going for this event - I have a lot going on in the next month or so, so juggling my work schedule, my daughter's school related stuff, and other events that I'd like to attend - it's going to be a photo finish to get to this. I've made it to all the others so far, so cross your fingers!

    If I can go, Cabell, I will have to submit a registration form onsite. Once I'm sure I can go, it will be too close to the event dates to mail the form/money in.

    Mike (maddawg30, do you still have any of those HMMWV jacks left? Daves86 could use one. If he doesn't make Graves Mtn I can pick one up for him.


    To all interested, I can bring soft slant back kits (bearing in mind I have sold near all my stock and am making more) to the Rally for the swap meet, if anyone might be interested. Please tell me if so, and I will make a point of focusing on your preferred design. No obligation to purchase, just helps me decide what to sew next, as it were.

    I may bring a HMMWV cargo cover and bows as well (competing with myself, eh?). I picked one up as a trade-in for swapping out a soft slant back on a guy's ride last week.

    So, I got the proofs for the shirts back today (took at few tries to get them right, remind me never to order two different designs on the same day...).
    Hopefully, you can see what they look like...
    Chuck will have the Event shirt for sale at the HQ/Registration tent - we'll know the prices as soon as the shop finishes printing them and gives me a bill...
    The Trail Crew shirt is available from me, but you have to come help clear trails in order to earn one...

    A Big shoutout to Steve and Irvin (from RockRidge Offroad Jeep Club) for running up to Graves this past weekend and taking care of some items on the list of things to get ready...
    Considering what needs to be done to get ready, and folks' schedules, we WILL NOT be having a work weekend at Graves this weekend (August 16-1...

    A big thanks to Al Harvey and SCSG-G4 who have both agreed to run the range this year (that way, they both have time to socialize and trail ride, etc)….
