Saturday August 27 was the Rising Sun Rally in the parking lot south of the Jeffco Human Services Building.

Rising Sun would be remiss if we didn't take the opportunity to acknowledge and enthusiastically thank event coordinator Art, and new member Joe and HIS ENTIRE FAMILY for all of the work and leadership they put into to keeping the rally alive this year! :thumb: :thumb:
And everyone else for all the work as well


I didn't get a lot of pictures, was in the booth much of the time, so if anyone has more pictures, post them up!!!

I was able to make some cool purchases, and as always enjoyed the scene. Great way to spend a Saturday.

Excellent turn out! Thank you Mike for posting this thread. I'll post up some pics as well. Thank you everyone for helping out and for everyone that made the event! I want to put in a special thank you to Joe, Danella, Art, Mike Simpson, Greg, Dan, and Mike Koons for all that you do and did to make this event a success.

Like Mike Simpson, I was able to make some great purchases and thanks to those that brought out stuff to sell. The Rising Sun Rally has always been, and remains a great time to see friends, cool vehicles and swap stuff from one person's garage into another person's garage. It should be a scheduled annual event and not left to the last minute in hopes that a couple of people decide to pick up the torch and keep the Rally alive. Thanks to all that made it happen this year, especially Art, Joe and his family. Probably wouldn't have happened if you guys hadn't stepped up.

First one I have missed since 2008. Bummed I could not make it.

Way to go all that made it a reality!

Yep, Great job making this happen folks it was a fun time, I was just going to stop by but ended up there for several hours.

Highpoint: Driving Treeroots '59 FJ-25. it's sweet; power, handling, simplicity, just freaking awesome! Thanks again Mike!

Lowpoint: In my excitement (FJ-25 yo!) I left my Contigo coffee cup in the lot, it had some good patina so probably got tossed. Anybody grab it?


Thanks all,

How many people showed? I had a couple vendors ask and would probably have a booth next year.

I'm not sure what the official number was. But I'd say at least 60+ rigs throughout the day. About twice what it was last year. :thumb:

Thanks all,

I have the Contigo coffee cup. Picked it up in case it belonged to one of us. I'll put it in the 25 in case you want to swing by and grab it.

Thanks for the shoutout guys! This year's event was our first and I'm thankful for awesome friends that helped make this event great! Our family genuinely enjoyed our time. Thanks to all of the Rising Sun members for welcoming us to the club. We look forward to Cruise Moab!
