    7 months until BadDNA gets another chance to photograph Johnbryanpeters scratching his crotch. Apparently Douglas is exited about it too.

    Why not do several MonkeyFests at the same time all organized by different folks? Have an East coast, west coast,mid west, central and as many as the Canadian Monkeys can muster, I would love to try and Organize a MF in Arkansas on the same day and we could simulcast party info, I expect I could draw Monkeys from AR,TX,LA,OK,MO,TN,MS,AL. and maybe even KS or Southern IL. I have some cool ideas for events and even have a connection with a bike shop and a beer sponsor....... the only thing I lack is cash reserves. I was thinking one day of trail riding and one day of bike Olympics..... who is interested?

    The condo was nice, I didn't stay there but I visited. There is something to be said for the capacity and convenience of the lodge though. Having that flat track right next door and the lack of neighbors is kind of cool too.

    I hope you guys hold it some time during the end of the national series, or when the series is on the east coast.

    Well, the ones we stayed in had 4-6 units together so, :lighten: that might be an option. After what the Lodge owner pulled on me this fall, I am not sure that I want to deal with him again.
