Sandy and I have been blessed the past six years that we have headed this event up. With out the help of some great people this event wouldn't get off the ground. From the guys in the kitchen that take care of the meals year after year with-out a hitch. Chris and the guides for taking care of the trails. To the many people, clubs and Sandy that spend countless hours contacting sponsors to get those awesome raffle prizes. To you, the wheeling participant, who spends their hard earned money to bring your family and friends to the event to relax for the weekend. We want to say THANKS! This has been a great ride. I know Tidewater and I know this event will still be awesome year after year whom ever runs it.
We are glad that we made it through the event this year without a single injury. Even though there were a couple of roll overs. I know the raffle was long, but there were some very excited winners. I even got a hug from Jason, glad he didn't kiss me!
I want to thank the few people that stayed and helped clean up the field, haul the trash, deliver the remaining food to the church , and haul everything back to the Tidewater area.
A special thanks goes out to Eric for making the quilt that raised $430 for VA4WDA. Remember clubs, he is looking for club t-shirts to make one for next years event.
As you may or may not know Sandy and I sit on the BOD for VA4WDA and are also Delegates to United. We are working with both Associations to help them grow and become stronger to fight the fight to keep public lands open. You will see many e-mails from us, VA4WDA and United that will need your attention. Please read the information put out and take the surveys or write those letters that we ask you to write. Your time will help in the end, trust me.
Again we would like to thank all the people that have been a great help over the past six years and I hope you will continue to help with the event as Sandy and I plan on doing but in a smaller role.
You're too hard on yourself Adam. For starters no one should ever blame the spotter. He gave it some gas right before he flopped and didn't feel what the rig was doing so had no time to stop. Although that wasn't the preferred line (I just learned what the preferred line was that weekend by Boucher but I've forgotten already), most people take it slower and catch it before they flop and either slide and catch the rocker or teeter.

A couple of quick clips including Eddy snapping his drive shaft, a TJ flopping on upper 3 (crappy spotter), and me making upper 3 look easier than it is. I tried to post to MPJ, but the site still won't let me.
It's the pizza cutters and one tons.
