    Attendence today at the show exceeded our wildest expectations, even though it was raining all day, tomorrow should be even better. First live video feed will be at 11:00 AM tomorrow

    That right there is a beautiful thing. To think that each one of those rods will put a smile on a servicemembers face warms my heart.

    Thank you TCRBS, Bill, Silvia, and the rest of the custom builders that supported this effort.

    *applause*

    Got to watch Doc's demo on tiger wraps yesterday on the live feed. It was great. Thanks Bill for including all of us that couldn't get there.

    Was great seeing everyone there yesterday and finally got to meet Bill and see our old friend Doc again. Loved the scooter. Some awesome rods on display. The ones in the contest are off the chart. Nice job to all those builders.

    Thanks to Bill and Silvia and everyone else who put this together. great job.

    Hey Bill, I didnt see my build in the mix with the others for the contest. Did you see the rod, did it make it out there? Hope you guys are having fun.

    Yeah Jason it was there, #17, ooops Jason, your rod actually wasnt in that photo, #17 was a rod built by a Jason Schmit, Your rod did eventually make it though although there was some confusion because you had posted it as a RFS rod. We did get it straight eventually and your rod was donated to a Viet Nam veteran and we will be getting you his info soon, stay tuned

    That shot was taken before the doors had opened, after that there was always a crowd in front of the rack

    We just rolled up a little bit ago after picking up our four legged babies from the Doggie Spa! I just wanted to let all of you know that we have tons of photos for the show. Each rod had photos taken so if any of you who made a rod and want the photos please just get in touch with me and I will send it to you.

    It will take me a while to go through them and make some kind of sense out of them so please give me a bit and I will post them as soon as I am finished.
