    Fruita Fat Tire Festival (attn Pete)

    Sorry I have been unable to reply to you, my old identity in here seems to be no more...

    Here's a bit of inside info on Fruita stuff if it affects your plans...

    Wednesday April 28th we will be doing our annual "Epic Ride" in the Rabbit Valley area. We will meet at the shop at noon or if you are coming from Moab we will be at I-70 exit #2 about 12.30.

    Thursday eve is the usual "get together/VIP gig" about 6 pm on at a location I will gladly reveal if you ask me in person.
    Pete; if you are around Thursday we may re-enact last years "VIP shifter cart race" in the early afternoon.

    Friday of course everything is as usual except that we have a full band in the park till 10 pm. .

    If you want ot do the barly gig in a new area I have some ideas, but JD's pad would be a cool change as well; I am always hoping you'll be closer to Fruita so I can be more social...

    Any racer folks; the course is all new, in Rabbit Valley and should be really good. Much more technical this year.

    Pete if you want accomodation out west let me know, I should have my comps lined up this week.

    Cheers to all

    Fruita is on!

    No sure that was a cool post Chet,

    ...to publicly announce a private invitation (with details) to someone who we are trying to coordinate with?

    Perhaps you should have paged him to contact you rather than put the details on the board.

    But I might be wrong and you are inviting the rest of us

    As I stated; 'at a location that is available to (most) anyone who asks me in person'.

    I think you know I have been far from "exculsive" in everything I have done in Fruita at my house or whatever. But I do have to make sure I don't open myself up to soething really strange. Like postine my home address on MTBR or inviting someone to my VIP party who might get in a fighht with JD or poach my whole event or something.

    ...so on the subject, I saw you post that you werent coming? What up?

    No, that is misunderstood. I'm not volunteering like last year to guide rides. I intendend on going but I'm not "officially" part of the troop. Looks Like I will be there the whole fest now.

    Well then, you already know the gig right?

    Same locations as last year. Epic ride will be leaving OTE at Noon on Wednesday if you can make that.

    Only 2.7 weeks!

    Yikes!

    Hell no, I'm one of those VUPs that can't even find the loop!

    Basically I'm wondering if you'll be in Moab or Fruita on Wed.
