Award Night of the Annual
Brady ended up taking a 2nd place trophy in his class. Brady is in the "Boys Class", which also competes for a prestigous award known as the Dirk Harbor Trophy. Dirk Harbor was a member many years ago, long before I joined the D.O.M. club. Dirk loved riding motorcycles, but tragically passed away from cancer when he was still a boy. His spirit lives on in our hearts today with this perpetual trophy in his memory.
Here's my daughter Nina with the one ribbon she won. It was for 3rd place in Slalom race.
Nina had a lot of fun this year, which was her first as a particapant in the race events. Hopefully next year she will do even better and win more ribbons, or maybe even a trophy.
After all the awards were handed out, the last order of business was to name the new King and Queen. Well there isn't a new royal couple - the same couple (Dan and Leslie McGee) are going for a second lap.
Okay, there's only one more part to my Annual store: the ride home. I'll have that post for you in a day or two.
Try to imagine being in the desert and coming around the bend of a dune and seeing what appears to be about one hundred white rectangle Legos scattered on the side of a sand dune.
Then as you get closer, the white Legos become larger than you � and you realize your in the middle of the largest recreation trailer lot you�ve ever seen. The sound of classic rock and the smell of BBQ is everywhere.
There's a bon fire in the middle of your camp that will melt sand into glass. Good friends visit and compare stories of their adventures of riding in the desert. Sigh.
Pardon me, I need a moment alone.
