Hey Viewies!  A quick report from the Riders Helping Riders race this past weekend.  As most of you know, the Viewfinders volunteered to work the start. John, Jon and I arrived early Friday a.m. and were soon followed by the Gas~Man himself Keith Jones and his much better half Tara along with one-half of the club?s Blues Bros duo, Norm Takaki. We hit the start line area in the cold, blustery wind and after some chin scratching, consulting and chasing some play campers out of the area (kidding, they decided to leave after the found out a race was going to start about 20 feet from their camp), we got down to business on setting up 26 rows for the class start.

Naturally, Anal (I mean Keith) Jones had twine lengths all measured out and marked at 15 feet intervals so all we had to do was provide the manual labor of pounding stakes, attaching row cards and ribboning a new mini-bomb/course section to the first saddle in them thar hills. Mike Hastings soon arrived and helped finish the fine tuning on the course (danger markings, down arrows, etc.) and we all headed back to camp for naps, lunch and for some - a late afternoon ride. Brian McKenzie and Viewie sweetheart Erica pulled in and set up camp and we soon had Michael Hastings with us as well.  The wind died down later that night and despite coming prepared to blast the sound system and party into the night - the full moon, gazillion stars and great campfire lulled us into a relaxing evening of star gazing and planning some dream rides for the club. The only downside to the evening was the obnoxious fireworks that had poor Toby hiding in the bathroom ? shaking and panting. Tara also headed indoors and found a dark, quiet corner in our trailer to relax in.

Saturday morning dawned sunny, wind free and beautiful.  We headed back to the start to check on the markings and decided to play it extra safe and marked all danger/down arrow spots for about 100 yards wide.  We headed back to the start where Brian Mac and I teched and took down numbers. Russ Jenkins, Vince Balsitas (and son), Brian Mundell (and groupies) had arrived and it looked like we had things under control. We were scheduled for a 9:00 a.m. start and the Viewie banner dropped for the first row at 9:15 ? not too bad considering the number of riders!  All went smooth after that and we sent 26 rows off with a Viewfinder banner drop and then proceeded to pull ribbon, stakes and clean up the start area. 

We had one member on the pit board ? Matt and Bob Alexander came out for the day and word is Jonesy put together a NASCAR style pit for Matt.  Matt Eddy was also out racing, but brought his own entourage to take care of his needs. Rumor is Matt Eddy finished 2nd overall and Matt A. finished 2nd in class.  Congrats to both Matties!

We hung around the campfire the rest of the afternoon ? it had a whole different feel since it was only Saturday and there was no rush to get home. Our relaxing soiree soon came to an end as Russ was leaving and decided to go bush whacking in his truck. We heard a pop and then a hiss and much to Russ? dismay, he had punctured the sidewall of his rear tire. We scrambled to help, but soon discovered Russ had lost his spare ?key?. Ford has a wonderful system where each vehicle has a key code to fit into the spare lowerer. After borrowing about 6 different ?keys? from different F250 owners, we came across one that fit and soon had Russ on his way.  Kieth ?the Animal? Jones headed out for his relaxing drive to the Salton Sea and the rest of us headed home.  Thanks to all the Viewies who came out to support RHR and I hope everyone else had a relaxing weekend of overeating, NO shopping and hanging Christmas lights!  Have a wonderful Holiday Season!

Great 'race weekend' report! Did our NEW club sec deligate the report duties to MOM? ::) Kandy was the Dust Bunny this weekend! She looked like she had raced a 100 miler thru a silt bed ;D I wonder how many cans off Lemon Pledge it took JT to clean her up??? Kind of dusty waving off 25 rows and having the start truck in the middle of it all!                            Great Weekend, 'Anal'
ps. Ya got to admit the the start grid was impressive when WE ALL got it put together!!! The Viewies  always impress me on pulling things together in a GrRAND fashion. :)

Actually, no .. she just merely took it upon herself.... I asked her about it this a.m... We figured it would be kinda hard to write seeing that she was there and I wasn't... I was also under the impression that I began office in 2008... so things were/are a tad unclear to me! I will assume the position now...

Keith are you trying to get me in trouble?  I have been trying so hard not to say anything about that.  I am going to sit over here in my corner and wait for 08 to begin.  Then we can officially bash the new club officer.
