Exclamation Spring Training Camp . . . now has a WEBSITE!

Yessir! . . . our little gathering now has it's very own website. AND, an official new name to boot. What was once called 'LT Spring Training Camp' is now officially renamed 'Spring Training Camp for Riders'. Or you can just call it 'STC for Riders' for short. We decided to drop the "LT" from the name because we don't want any riders feeling excluded just because they don't ride an LT. The Tech Sessions will still remain LT-focused.

So check out the new site here --> http://www.STCforRiders.com/ And make sure to keep checking in from time to time for the latest breaking 'STC for Riders' news & information. Also, feel free to PM me with suggestions...just don't get upset if I don't use all of them.

A big thanks to Don Norwood for organizing our little gathering in the hills. Last year was simply a blast! And this year, my expectations are doubled!

And last but not least . . . a VERY SPECIAL THANKS goes out to forum member 'vstromboli' for working with me over the last past week putting the website together. Jacques...you are truly "DA MAN"!!!

Don't you just love it....when a plan comes together?

My thanks to Joe and Jacques for their work on this project, a much needed addition to our little gathering...of riders and friends.

Joe sent me a PM some time back and suggested that we needed a website, I responsed by "take the ball and run with it" ....... Joe scored.

Looking forward to see ole and new friends at this gathering in the hills of Western North Carolina...

Thumbs up Top Shelf Rating

Joe and Jaques,

Hats off to a top shelf performance here, guys. This is awsome, and just goes to demonstrate one more time how far out in front of the other regions we seem to be in terms of our level of involvement, commitment and enthusiasm towards our favorite pastime. Not that it is a contest or anything, but you know what I mean.

Smile Thanks!

Thanks for all the kind words guys. I am simply delighted at the work Jacques (vstromboli) did. I organized the info...and let the real artist do the work. I guess that makes me "management material"!


I REALLY like the logo!!! Can anyone say..."T-Shirts"?!
I thought you could...

Thanks for all the kudos!

It was a fun project except for the fact that Joe's a real slave driver! I'll let you guys know how everything turns out after I get back from my therapy.

IH should be open by April 1st and we have made a few additionals to the pavilion like the mezzanine has been finished. We are adding another room in the garage and then preparing 4 Full hook up RV spots for the workampers we have contracted to arrive in April.

We are making plans to build a 5th cabin which is going to be a house with 6-8 bedrooms for larger groups like the LT riders. Hope to have it done by June.

We are in the final stages of drafting the covenants for Thunder Mountain, and we anticipate selling lots for phase 1 in the next 2 months.

Lots of changes this year as we enter the 4th year. Hard to believe.

That's truly exciting news Don. I wish John & Charlene all the success in the world. I just hope that the new additions won't raise the price of that brownie sundae!!!
