you should come dressed in your zuke suit and best southern duds. There will

Shackup Inn as we have booked them all. However, we will have bus
transportation from a host hotel in Clarksdale.
We changed the name of the Indiana Cookout to the Founder's Feast in 2005 so
thinking that we might want to move the event from year to year. This will be
the second year for the move. In 2006 we held the Founder's Feast in conjunction
with the Inaugural Ride Around Texas (RAT), in Texarkana, Texas. This year we
wanted to hold the event with either a Flower Sniff'n event or a Rough Road
Ride. The Rough Road Ride won out and we will be holding the 2007 Founder's
Feast in conjunction with the Southern Illinois Rough Road Ride (SIRRR) in
- Friday, October 5, 2007 ~ 7:00 - 11:00 p.m.
The Digital Photo Contest
- Saturday, October 6, 2007
This time is reserved for chewing the fat. You know telling
lies and stories about your latest ride. It is a great chance to do some
catching up with old friends and an opportunity to make some new ones.
We will supply some snacks and soft drinks. We will not have a bar but you
will be allowed to BYOB.
Of course the number of folks chewing might be minimal as
the AmeriHost Inn is located within a stones throw of Harrah's Casino. I
know more than one person that we might have to drag out of the casino.
Click the button above for details. This will be a 6 hour
contest where you will be given categories the morning of the ride. You will
develop your own route with must include one of two checkpoints. The goal is to
pictures that fit into the given categories. Awards will be presented to the
best photo in each category and for best of show.
