ATTENTION EVERYONE



i write this post with a heavy heart and tears in my eyes. we are going to cancel this ride and postpone it to a later date. the backup plan would have forced people to spend more money and drive alot further. dan and i feel that it's unfair to ask that of you guys in these hard times.

if you have any questions comments or concerns please direct them to me thru pm. i will warn you now if they come off the wrong way you wont get a very polite answer. this is more then just a regular ride to me, dave was a very close friend and i really looked up to him. i really hate doing this but thanks to our fed. gov. we have to do this.

we do not have a date for the new ride at this point. that will be worked out in the following days.







The David "Ramphog" Thrasher memorial trial ride April 9th 2011


Ramphog loved trail rides with his NVJA buddies! his favorite trails were flagpole and peters mill in GWNF. In his honor we are hosting an EPIC trail ride!!!!

There will be a trip up flagpole during day followed by a night ride thru petersmill! when we meet up for lunch we have have 50/50 raffle and there will also be a time for everyone to share stories and memories about Dave. There will be a slight entry fee for this trail ride. 100% of the entry fee and 50/50 raffle proceeds will go to a college fund for his daughter Summer. Gretchen and Summer are also coming along on the ride!!! We will have a box set up at lunch and the meet up point for the night ride if you would like to donate more then the entry fee. you can also contact me or Ltdanyj about donating if you can't make the ride.

there will also be two member donated raffles!!!!! the first will be on FP at lunch and the second right before we roll out for the night ride!

the entry fee per jeep (no passenger fee) will be $20 for the day trip and $10 for the night tirp.

entry fee can only be payed on the day of the ride IN CASH, please no checks(this might changed)



now to the logistics

Meet up point for the day run will be the old food lion in harrisonburg, va
924 W Market St, Harrisonburg, VA
