Thank you!

If you've wandered back to this website, perhaps hoping to see some pictures taken during the reunion, you're in luck. I'm going to add some links to some galleries that house said pictures.

Again to everyone who came to participate and support this event, thank you very much. We all agreed that it turned out better than we all could have imagined, when we first started to plan this thing.

Anyway, here's the link to those pictures, courtesy of SAR ONE Photography, AKA AST1 Dave Lawson of ALSE Technical Services:

OBX Motorcycle Ride April 3rd.
Saturday, April 3rd. Bikers will meet at Waterfront Park, (directly across the street from the Museum of the Albemarle) at 9:30-9:45 a.m.with full tanks and empty bladders.
Kick stands up and rolling out of the parking lot at 10:00 a.m.

Lunch for the OBX Ride, at The Black Pelican.
We got a hot tip from Butch, seems like the Black Pelican in Kitty Hawk is a really nice place to eat, and they're willing to give us our own room upstairs, overlooking the ocean. Check the menu when you visit their website HERE..

The motorcycle ride has been extended, here's the details:
After lunch, everyone that wants to continue on, will mount up and press on south towards Rodanthe, NC. We'll stop, enjoy a beverage of choice at a local establishment, and talk about everyone who didn't show up!! Just kidding.. But this will add about 80 miles to our ride, so plan accordingly. Four wheel vehicles will be excluded from this portion of the ride..If you can't participate in the ride down to Rodanthe, you can escort the cagers back to E-City!!

If you haven't registered for the Anniversary Event, do it now by e-mailing 25rscg@gmail.com with your information.
