Recommended Posts

Bud
I'm still waiting for my "first place" prize. ;)

 

Do you need a prize??????? I will bring your "first place" prize to FART.

 

Here is a preview so you can start to get excited!

No, don't thank me. There are many others who made this prize possible. :grin:

I wouldn't get too worked up and excited, Mark. Odds are off the chart in your favor of Bud not arriving.

Hey now, I represent that! :whistle:

 

But just to prove you wrong, I will pick up my new ride from an individual who is 1/2 hour away from Blairsville, GA! :grin:

 

And Flo is already packed in my bag, ready to be presented in all of her "Flo'ness Glory" :wave:

Then again, you have to take these numbers with a grain of salt - as Bud signed up for them, but never actually came! :wave::whistle:

 

What is this? Pick on Bud day??? :wave:

 

Yes, I've been a no-show a time or two. But Nancy and I hosted a Pied Piper rest stop at our house a few years back, and I did show up in Wisconsin a couple of years ago, which cost me a lot of money, because I bought FOOT's GS as soon as I got back home, and then don't forget I had to go back to St. Louis due to emergency surgery on my you grandson and I gifted an unopened, large size bottle of Makers Mark to a couple of the Usual Suspects, which was enjoyed by many, or so I was told by TN_R11_Girl.

 

I'm trying to keep my BMWST membership from being revoked. :clap:

 

And, I'm OUT for the next UN leaving room for me to sneak IN if I want to without being a "No Show" as I have been in the past.

 

Of course, I will be the envy of everyone when I bring my new bike! :rofl:

 

Bring on the snuggie, I'm man enough to wear it! :Yes:

I am assuming Bud that the new bike you will bring to UnRally '18 will be after you sell the "new" bike you are picking up for FART '17. :grin:

So, no Canadian limit?

 

I thought they were building a wall at the Northern US boarder to keep their citizens from coming to the US??????????? :grin:

 

Yeah, and Alaska is going to pay for it.

Well I'm not in the running. I'm coming to GA with a trailer behind the vehicle and it will be empty as the bike I'm buying is less than 1/2 an hour away from Blairsville. How about a new category for fewest miles ridden? :rofl:

Hi Eveyone,

 

This is NOT a contest for who rode the most miles.

We are getting everyone's mileage to FART recorded at check-in, then it will be totaled.

We will have a contest for who guesses the closest to the total amount of miles ridden to FART. The winner of the contest wins his or her choice of our prizes.

I was hoping to go to Torrey, and then FART. Torrey didn't work out, so I changed my reservation to FART, and will arrive on Tuesday the 26th and leave Sunday 10/1.

So, I just called to make reservation --- only rooms left in our block are smoking (blech!)

 

Well, that's the last nail of the coffin for me. Between getting married, new job and the relocation back north I just don't have enough vacation to make this happen.

 

I'm out....

 

:( This one hurts... I miss everyone.... yes, even you Marty... ;)

P.S. Mitch... when's the 1st annual run for the cheese curd rally?

 

You need to re-think your priorities, young man...

Nope, your trailer has 2 wheels, so, only true 4 wheel vehicles can qualify.

Hi Dick. Perhaps your computer is loading an old slide?

 

On the arriving slide, check #42, 43.

 

For dinner, see # 31 & 47.

 

I did have you on the paid dinner list, but not of the arrival slide for a while. Typically for the arrival slide, I add folks who post that they are coming. When I received your dinner payment, you went on that list right away - but not the who's coming slide, as I use the posts for that. Once I realized I had a discrepancy, I compared lists and added you to the arrival slide.

 

I received Bill's dinner payment today, and added him to both lists

 

Sorry for the confusion! Look forward to seeing you both!

Here's a Big Cheek Flapping THANK YOU for taking the time to register for dinner and get funds transferred.

 

The last few weeks have been full of challenges for most of you - and our little gathering pales by comparison to the concerns and situations many of you and yours - and/or acquaintances - are facing. Ken and I are amazed that so many of our Florida and Georgia regulars are still going to FART with us. :beer::dance:

 

Bruno :rofl: reports that there are 3 he's waiting to hear back from. Although I've turned in our numbers, I held out that we may have a couple more to add to our total. So just let me know so I can get you included if you're still coming. :lurk::lurk:

 

Surprise, Surprise, Surprise! :clap: Look who's coming for dinner :eat::lick: :

Hey, I think we need to all agree right now on this one point ... don't anyone bring nametags for anyone. Apparently, if anyone does that'll ruins the event for many others. So, please take care to not even bring your own. You just never know who's time you'll spoil. :rofl:

Well Craig, at more than one event I introduced myself as "Marty Hill". All I got was a bunch of strange looks. No one even laughed, including Marty.

I was hoping to go to Torrey, and then FART. Torrey didn't work out, so I changed my reservation to FART, and will arrive on Tuesday the 26th and leave Sunday 10/1.

This is looking more like an UN with people arriving on Tuesday! I like this now that I am "almost" completely retired. :thumbsup:
