Thanks Everyone!


Thanks to all of you who made this years event possible. It was so good to see some old familiar faces and a few new ones as well. Good times this year, I had a hard time leaving early this morning knowing it would be another year before I see some of you again.

Dman it was an honor to share the playa with you. I've only known you for a short while but feel like we are longtime friends. Thanks for your presence, your support, and your friendship.

Expect even better next year guys. Our team is growing and we keep learning from our mistakes. We've already put some stuff down that will make everyone more involved and informed.

We were all thrilled at how enthusiastic everyone was about the relay races. The Pro/Am format drew people in that wouldn't get in a real race. I'd like to see that grow even more.

The Dirt Nap event was a bigger success this year but I'd like to get some "team leaders" to seek out individuals to form small groups to travel together for Dirt Nap. It's safer, and I've heard many say it's one of the funnest things they've ever done when they accomplish the goals as a group. In 2016 we will have event meetings in the tent every morning in the tent at the same time. This would be a good place to congregate groups for the day. We are already discussing a special reward for finishing the event next year. It's looking like something you don't want to miss out on. Stay tuned.

Bottom line is that it takes all of us for the event to grow and be successful. All of you make a difference when you support the event and bring yourselves and your personalities. Thanks for the continued support.

I'd like to learn how to take a dirt nap. A bunch of us did a "dirty buffet" a few years back and it was fun.

Congrats Bobby and crew and good luck with continued success.

I thought the event, like last year was awesome. Simply the best time I had all year (and I went to New Orleans on new yrs eve as well as a 7-day Caribbean Christmas Cruise)!

If I were to be critical and say there was something I wished for...
1. Dirt Nap - did it twice this year. Great fun. Heck, one of my visits resulted in me walking my buggy the 3.5 miles back...but I did it again the next day!!! Going with someone else was more fun. The daily meetings could say "anyone want to go on a group Dirt Nap tour, meet out front at noon"
2. Daily meetings. Start on time. End quickly. You snooze, you lose. Discussion of what is happening that day (announce dirt nap tour, announce the weather, announce a lost phone, announce a relay race to start at 2pm).
3. Ending meal was awesome and amazing. Please do it again. Unfortunately, the last day is the first time I saw most of the people. This goes back to the daily meeting at the same time each day.
4. Dry Tortuga - this is an island out in the Gulf of Mexico. Named because it has no water and they did not want sailors heading to the Island with the hopes of fresh water. Along the same lines, GPS locations (geocache) of things but there is no cooler there. You guys go there all the time. What interesting things have you found ? (I passed by a huge refrigerator dump).
5. Bling your Buggy. Night brings out lights. Bling your buggies. A challenge to make it special or flashy.
6. Name tags.

Like I said...do it again like this year and you have a winner!!

These are brainstorming ideas to make us congeal.

Paul

I love the name tag thing, PKF handle or our actual names would be great.

Can't wait for next year!

All great ideas, and many have been locked in already for next year already. I like the buggy bling idea too!
