Ahhhhh well done Shaun

Great ride and Beut pics Bud

I'm sorry I missed it. The CMA run 4 blankets was good but not as awesome as this.

Count me in next year boet.

wayne.

Hi there Wayne,

Our dates will be worked out & coordinated better for next year's Event. We had checked with the "MAWC" Callender & had a set date which was originally scheduled to be on thw 10th April, but due to all the "Red Tape" Crap we had to deal with as well as certain "Incompitent Personal" in certain provincial departments, which had caused far too many delays,... we had to reshedule another date, which unfortunatley landed up on the same day as the "Blanket Run" hosted by CMA.

As I have mentioned,... due to this issure,... we where committed to try & keep everyone happy,... & that lead to our decission to contribute R10 (form each entry received), towards CMA's cause & filter that portion accordinaly. ;)

It really will be Gr8 to have both you & Debbie joining us next year. :thumleft: :thumleft:

It was a great ride and well organized. :thumleft:

Just a shame for the fog, but still a big turnout :ricky: Most of the guys where well behaved, just 3 “ass holes” with their super bikes from a clang. They where popping wheelies with their pillions and dragging through Ou Kaapse weg. And then as for being asked NOT to pop and drag on the runway.....what do they do :deal: Well.....there are always a few pricks in a bunch.

Other than that, enjoyed myself and nice meeting a few other Dogs.

BIO, nice RR :thumleft:

It was really Gr8 to have you join us. Thanks for the very kind words. Gotta fully aggree with you,... on the point that it would've been really special if there were a lot more WD's present. No worries htough,... we'll be a lot more organised for next years Event, along woth getting the word out a lot earlier next time. I'm also going to make a Special effort to get a "Moerse Big" banner (with a Gr8 Big WD Paw on it), proudley displayed, for all of us Doggs to get together & have a good time.

w.r.t. the "SB" dudes,..... I think with a lot more WD's present next year,... we can perhaps display a bit of "Culture" & it'll rub off on them.... :imaposer: :imaposer: :pot: ;D

Thanks again Dion :thumleft:

This was a very nice event. Not even the weather could stop the enthusiasm of the participants. :ricky: Next year it will even be bigger. Thumbs up to the organisers, it was superbly well done.

 Well done neighbour :thumleft:

Dankie, Buurman, vir jou ondersteuning. Dit is altyd lekker as ons almal saam staan vir sulke gooi goed. Next year 4 sure :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft:

Ek sal van die photos by jou kry,... maar hier is een Cool een van jou toe jy daardie klein "pillion" vir a spin gewat het.

jy kan nie n klomp bikers op n runway toelaat en verwag niemand gaan n wheelie pop nie!

dit lyk baie cool, ek wil net weet hoekom die kommunikasie in die biking community so crap is! dit gebeur oor en oor dat meer as een event op dieselfde dag gehou word! soos bv sondag die 15de, die CMA blanket run en die ysterplaat run, albei vir liefdadigheid. almal sal mos daarby baat as dit op verskillende dae gehou word. ek sou graag altwee events wou bywoon...

Hi daar "kaalkoejawel",

I would like offer (on behalf of all of us @ AFB Yplt that organised the Event), a sincere appology for this problem. I can assure you that it will not happen again next year or any other Event. Like I mentioned in my reply to Hayleyscomet,.... we had unforseen hurdles through the preperation process.

We have learnt a lot through this process & have also connected with a lot of "correct" people in the "right" places. So the planning.preperation process for next years Event will be done a lot earlier & with a lot more "Willing to Assist" type of people.

Next year will be Better & Bigger & more successful :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft:

To Shaun and everyone else involved in organising this ride, Thanx a Million! A special word of appreciation to the
Traffic Cops who got us all safely back at the base. We need more people that's prepared to take the lead and organize a ride.
With the infrastructure you have please don't stop, just include a nice after party next time :3some:

A few more pictures

It was Gr8 to have met you Sakkie. Thanks too for the super photos you have posted as well.

w.r.t. the Traffic Officials responce to the whole event,... they did say that they very happy with the way everything went. Apart form the 1 or 2 or 3 little "issues" with those "SB's" >:D >:D ;D,..... they committed to giving us their 100% support for future Events that we plan in the future. :thumleft: :thumleft:

Here are a few photos of 2 of the 3 beneficiaries, that benefitted from the proceeds of the Event. The other proceeds of the funds raised will still be distributed. It really is so rewarding to be able to be a part of a Team (everyone that took part in this Speciail occasion) that can make so much difference in these littlte kids lives.

Quite a different kind of "Pillion". :ricky: :ricky: ;D
Apparently this dudes dog travels everywhere with him. Was pretty cool to see his dog carrying his helmet around, in his mouth, while they were walking around.
