This was a great run led by Matt (Hulk) and gunned by (Mike)Tch2Fly. We had 21 rigs with lots of regulars and quite a few new folks. the weather was actually great even though we endured some hail at the rally point. Dinner was also attended by 21 people. Thanks for a great day Matt and Rising Sun.

Here are some of my pics:

And more...

I should point out that Charlie, Matt's son, got into the pepper flakes and had a really tough time stopping the burning in his mouth and lips. He was dousing himself to water and then moved onto cottage cheese when the water did not work (I think Ricardo has some shots of that). I hope things have finally cooled off for him and I bet it will be a long while before he eats pepr flakes again.

Wow, what a great time. Special thanks to Matt F. for leading us today. We had 21 rigs and it was great to see everyone. TTubbs, I was awful sorry to hear about your damage and got to see some pictures at dinner. I really think your 40 is way cool and enjoyed riding across the parking lot with you.

Well, while not an exhaustive list here are some pictures from the day. I saw a bunch of camera's out there today and am looking forward to seeing all of your photos. Mr. Hamilton was not messing around when he got home this evening, great pictures Jeff. :thumb:

You can't really blow off work unless you first show up, so here is my 40 in the work parking lot this morning.

As we were gathering at the King Soopers we got a bit of rain and small hail. It finished just a quickly as it started and we really had great weather.

Here is part of the group at the pre-meeting. Quite a few new faces and for many of us it was our first time running this trail.

Here is a partial shot of the group as we gathered at the bottom of the hill.

Martin, I know you'll be logging on to check on all the 40 activity this summer, the 40s were well represented. Here are a few of them.

There are some nice views on this trail.

After the run we all enjoyed some fellowship and pizza.

The young red heads had some cottage cheese with their pizza.

Mountain Drew and I had a great time. :cheers:
Thanks to Matt for leading and the club for buying the pizza.:thumb:

The Iron-butt award goes to Terry Tubb for making an 8 hour :eek: round trip from Crested Butte to join the run.
Unfortunately someone backed into his beautiful 40 while we were sitting at the gather point and there are 20 guys willing to swear to that in front of his wife.:D

But other than that it was a great event










Terry...is she gone now?






really gone??






ok shhh maybe ... just maybe there was a bit of damage done on the trail (pics by Mountain Drew)

What a great time...I'll dispense with the words and get right to the pictures :D

The group shot at the meadow, minus a few that had already started playing on the hill - If you look closely you can even catch a rare glimpse of Kipper :thumb:

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...06-10-09/4.jpg


Nice views....

Now for the wheel stand pictures...Many partook (is that even a word?) in the fun...

First up was Steve...Very nice

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...06-10-09/6.jpg


Second up was, well Steve again...Still trying to figure out how he pulled this off :eek:

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...06-10-09/7.jpg


Carlton...Well he got denied on the wheel stand :hill: - Carlton needs a locker :D

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...06-10-09/8.jpg


Art got in on the action...Nice air

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...06-10-09/9.jpg



Not to be outdone, Cheeseman pulled this out of his bag of tricks...

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...6-10-09/10.jpg


Then Marco showed everyone up!

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...6-10-09/11.jpg



Then there was Mike...Showing us, well, ummm, how not to get air I guess :hill:

http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...6-10-09/12.jpg



And finally, the carnage. Sadly, the parking lot hit and run offender didn't leave a note :rolleyes:. I think Terry should return to the painter and complain about the paint that is already flaking off, for no apparent reason :)

Matt thanks for leading the run and thanks to the club for the pizza! It was a great day with the weather cooperating and the posted pics are awesome. See you on the trails soon.

I had a blast, and want to thank Matt for leading and thank everyone for making it yet another memorable event!

Hey Terry, my right front fender has TWO tweaks in it from the same trail...er hit and run parking lot driver...
