    2005 SOPWAMTOS Golden Toidy Winners

    SOPWAMTOS Emerges from Vegas Fog
    Petaluma, CA, October 3, 2005--It's been a few days since the Golden Toidys and things are just now coming back into focus for the SOPWAMTOS crew. The awards were a smashing success (depending on which side of a Toidy you were on) and a big thanks goes out to all who attended and to all those who sent their support. A special thanks goes out to Wes Shannon from Chile Pepper Bike Shop in Moab (peach tux) and to Josh Ray of Del Ray Construction (sound guy). Shannon was responsible for the "spoken word" intro as well as helping decorate some of the Toidys while Ray constructed the infamous "Golden Fist Award". It goes without saying that without Bruce Gordon and Mark Norstad that there would have never been a "2005" edition of SOPWAMTOS so here's to them for letting us catch the vapors.

    That was too funny! I havent been to interbike in years but I remember seeing an awards one time. I remember one recipient was really quite unhappy looking about it. Ah well, if you can't laugh at yourself....Can you refresh my memorey on what SOPWAMTOS means?
