Darn it, glad to hear things are active in your yard these days. Perhaps someone who can attend can video the event or line up, sorry I can not just drop by.

Hello all

just wanted to do an after action report for our first ever military vehicle event. I am busy going through photos and video and will be posting some here as well as our event page which I will post a link to.

In the interest of brevity and the report to follow, suffice it to say it was a big success in our eyes, we could not be happier. Thanks to all that participated, attended and assisted. I will be naming names as well as how we did for our chosen charity, Military Minds Inc.

Best Regards
John

John; Congratulations to you and your team for hosting such a successful event (on what seems like a moments notice). A great contribution to the charity, and looks like a lot of fun was had by all. Well done.

Thanks Wayne, was quite an undertaking for even the event we put on, I have greater respect for the folks who put on real events, must be an incredible amount of work! All in all the day went well and we are continuing to collect donations for the charity!
