Hey Quinster - I forgot to load this one , best free campground in Manitoba , not only was camping free but they provide fantastic free suppers and beer . Have to stop in on the way down to next year s eastern meet.

It was no problem Les! Anytime!

And thanks to all who were there for the great hospitality. From the moment we got there to the escort to Sault Ste Marie, we couldn't have felt more welcome.

OK, back on site, got the glitches that were plaguing my re-entry attempts since May worked out, thanks to Wolfpack and Roadwarrior.
Need to mention that, as the only Western representation in Fort Frances, Valerie an I had a great time. Nice to see some faces that we had not seen since Victoria, and some from even before. Good to see Mike and Lynn, Big Dave, Hammer, DD, Mal, on and on.
Good job done by Wolfpack re organizing the logistics of the event.
Riding weather was good for all but short stint in the Wayburn area, pouring rain for about an hour. Funny how one gets spoiled when all is good for all but one hour in three weeks.
Conspicuous by their absence, Armyboy and Wilma, McJeep and Tee, the Rocket, Danny and Annette, etc. You were missed by all present, raised a few to your health, so you should all be feeling wonderful. Hope to see you all in the Moose come spring. Bye for now.

Glad you made it back on to the site , you can now own the Western National 2018 Meet and I'll delete the one I announced .

PS: still waiting for the Eastern rider to post their 2017 meet ? Wonder if their are any guesses , maybe close to a (nickle) mine or something like that ??? Have to wait and see i guess.


UPDATE I can't delete it just edit it so be up to Rocket ot Warrior to delete completely.
