ACM8 Thank YOU!
Sunday's All Comer's Meet was awesome! BEST EVER! -- thanks to everyone who attended for making it so. To anyone reading these words who didn't get there, sorry but you missed a beauty of an event. Hopefully you'll join us for next year's ACM9 party -- Sunday, January 20, 2013.
Over 150 people this year. OVER 150! Amazing! That's about a 50% increase over last year. Maybe we should be thankful for the snow? It sure was fun to ride in. Had the weather stayed dry throughout the weekend, I'm certain that more than 200 people would have attended. 200+ peeps would have been WAY over the top.
I want to shout out a thank you to the generous, supportive people who volunteered to help organize this year's event.
Eric Dungy, DOD is grateful to you for getting out there at 7:30am to set the main party tent zone up. And for setting up / tapping / handling the beer. And for making awesome chili... there was even some left when I finished my ride at around 2pm. For managing the potluck. For the cookies (even tho cookies ain't my thing). For being there from beginning to end and taking care of people the whole time. That's something you do very well. Thank you.
Shawn (venue logistics), Michelle (vendors), Julia (sanitation), Perry (parking), Max (ride leadership), Brad, Scott, MJW, Brock (yeah, even Brock) -- THANK YOU VERY MUCH! You each & all stepped up in a strong way to make DOD's guests feel welcome, have fun & enjoy the day from beginning to end -- the ride, the accommodations, the post-ride festivities. Every Disciple of Dirt who offered to take a leadership role in ACM's organization & execution really delivered.
As a club we should be proud of this event, it's one of the best of it's kind anywhere. In fact, it's unique.
Thanks to everyone who got involved for making it all that & more.
Thank you DOD! ACM kicks ass! Whypass is one hell of a resource for us Willamette Valley MTB'ers, one of a kind fo sho!
I was big fun!

Working on the video edit.
The image sizing issue should be fixed now. Give it another try...

Still not working for me. I set the image width at 500p. Shows cropped at full size and full height for me. (Mac, Chrome and on iPad)
What an amazing day and event it was. So looking forward to what round nine has in store...but in the mean time grabbing some coffee and meeting at the pile in oh say an hour (that would be 10:16am) and survey the storm damage on a perfectly mudtastically amazing day.
