I look forward to talking/meeting with this years riders..

It looks like maybe between 6 and 7 we can chat about what you guys (and GIRLS) would like to see put together.. My main points have already been presented, there will be plunty of time to discuss design ideas face to face.. My first idea is a double kicker so it can be hit in both directions without being moved, or a SICK slider with a little kicker on the tail, this unit may sit partially on the sandbar and the rest floats- something like that..

This will be very informal discussion- no big deal.. Just want to touch bases with you all and see who really shows interest, take down names and numbers etc..

I have some crafty ideas about how to deal with the legal issues- in short, EVERY RIDER with be part owner and every owner will ride at there own risk...
This approach may overcome the biggest funding issue- THe unit will NOT be "mine" as last years unit was.. when you buy in- you own your own shit..

At this point this is conceptual/ brain-storming stuff.. I'd like to hear about what YOU guys want and how we might put that together..

The party will be fun- I hope you all can come!

Good Morning kiters-
Just wanted to say Hi and say MANY thanks to those that are offering to contribute to this cause...
The WINDY season is nearing- I hope to make personal contact with each of you interested in developing the new equipment, I'd like YOUR voice to be heard...
Those that cannot make it to the Season Opener party I'd like to contact me via: PM on the forum, please leave your name and contact information in my mailbox...

I'd like to think that even though the economy is getting worse- PEOPLE are getting better... I look forward to seeing your bright and shinny faces!
L.M.G.

UP-Date:
The party went very well, the meeting went OK..
Seven business are showing "interest", along with 14 known TEAM Riders..
So the turnout was encouraging--
NOW- We need the REST of YOU!!! It will be VERY IMPORTANT to hear from those that WANT this project- BEFORE we get started!!!
Without MAJOR SUPPORT we will be "dead in the water", pardon the pun..

THIS project it ABOUT YOU- The Riders, getting WORLD CLASS EQUIPMENT, stuff WE can be STOKED about!!
If you want to see what nothing buy's- watch the link that was posted above... If you don't CARE enough to JOIN US, you WILL be EXCLUDED- THAT will make ME very SAD, probably make OTHERS very MAD and NOBODY wants anything but a TOTAL STOKE!!!

WE NEED YOU- PLEASE JOIN FORCES WITH US!! Combined WE CAN do this.
United WE stand- divided WE fall,
L.M.G.

Ha!

I live in Sac, so as long as there is a decent lead time, I'm down.
