Last Event - May @ Camp Gruber
At the end of the day Shack busted out a double can of whup ass in the Expert class with 44 while Mike Cramsey had 69 and the always photogenic Chris Shellenberger with 72.
By the end of the day everyone felt like they had been in a 4-hour hot yoga class and eight out of the ten riders had multiple fives on their cards. The sections were quickly picked up because that was the only thing standing between the starving and thirsty riders and a great cookout and pot luck lunch. Thanks to everyone that provided goodies and Annie for making a special run to the store to get some missing ingredients. Shoutouts to Mike, Kevin, Todd and Penni for working on the course.
All the scores and year-to-date standings are on the web here.
