Prez notes: I want to remind everyone to please book your rooms early for the Bike Show and enter your Bikes asap so we can get an idea how much room we have to play with, and this makes setup so much easier on Friday before the Show. Also, contact Larry at 605-290-0763 and put your name on the schedule for gate duty as soon as you read this and maybe you’ll get the time slot you want… we need live warm bodies to make any Event work. Feel free to be at the D.E.C. Friday for layout too!
Thanks for your help in advance. And yes keep it outta the Cornfields / Soybean fields etc plp.
