That's a great question that few knew the answer to! Fortunately, after February 24 we will at least know where he wont be! The famous BVB has put in his dues and Toyota is letting him retire! To celebrate such an amazing tenure of the highly respected BVB please join in a pint or few at Big Choice Brewing ( 7270 W 118th Pl, Broomfield, CO 80020) Sunday, March 2 at 2pm till 4 or ????. It's all set up with Andrea and Nathaniel so show up and clank a glass with the legend himself! Feel free to bring finger food if you would like but don't let that stop you if you don't have the time as there will be stuff there to devour. BTW, Bill had no idea of this until he reads this so SURPRISE! :D Welcome to freedom BILL!:thumb::thumb:

His last day at Toyota will be tomorrow if memory serves from my last phone conversation with him a few weeks ago. Unfortunately I won't be able to attend this particular event as we've been invited to my son and his wife's baby shower at that same time. Yes, gonna be a grandpa for the second time, but it will be their first.

Someone should tell Bill so he doesn't have to go in on Monday!

Bummer and Congratulations!

I wish I could make it but parents are in town and we will be spending the weekend with them in the mountains....

It's kind of a bummer because It'd be really fun to be able to make the fiesta at BCB for BVB.

Geez Bill, next time don't chime in. This thread was getting good and you were becoming more than our local hero. Been two days and no more accolades or wise cracks.

Congrats Bill.

Wish I could make it but ironically my Toyota is doing its best to enter early retirement and is inoperative at the moment.

Thank you Kevin for a great party for a great friend of all of us. Bill you have been one of those solid folks in this big world of the Rising Sun. Now you get to play on your own terms.

Wish I could have made this. Bill has been quite a guy to have in the club over the years. He's packs a huge wealth of Toyota knowledge.
