Nice seeing y'all again.. This is the first one we've ever missed.. Too many irons in the fire to even try to make it!


Looking forward to seeing what direction the event goes in.

Jon Hobus was correct once again.......We did not need any stinkin' rain gear. What TWEETY needed was windshield wipers that actually worked!! - (Not to mention rubber for the front deck lid to prevent rain from getting into the entire fuse block!!)

Thanks to all for your help resolving that issue. - (Gary - FLASHLIGHT and Paper Towels, Jim - Diagnosis of non working Wiper Motor, Chris - Test Light for Jim's diagnosing, Joe and Joe - Rain-X and the help understanding how to apply RAIN-X on the windshield)

KUDOS to the hard working team that make this event happen each year. You all did another fine job. We really appreciate the effort you guys put into having this event. Especially the team who made Jon's BIRTHDAY on Friday night a surprise YET AGAIN!!
Cool

Ken's lesson and quote from this years Poker Run:"When the gas nozzle clicks as if to say the gas tank is full...Believe it and not your gas gauge!!"

Had an awesome time - Hope all the participants did as well.
Great to see everyone again!

We were running a little short on time so most of us skipped the DQ in Hiawassee and went on to Jake Raby's shop.

Thanks to everyone who joined us again this year. We had a great time and the weather didn't give us much problem at all. Very Happy

Thanks again to our sponsors this year: Raby Enterprises, Herrell's Bug Parts, North GA Speedometer, and Athens German Aircooled Parts!

This year was the 10th annual Poker Run and Steve, Clyde and I have been coordinating this event from the start; however, this year was the last one with us at the helm. We have got some brave new volunteers to take over and determine the direction this event will take as it continues to evolve. Kris Klein, Christine and Greg Dalton will now have the creative control and I can't wait to see what they come up with! Cool
