There were enough to have a good time and tell some tall stories. 15,000 trucks would have been overwhelming. As it turned out, it was a tight group that had a lot of fun and if you weren't there, be patient, next year is coming fast.

There were plenty of people there to make the first year a huge success. Don't be fooled by just the pictures, remember the lot could hold over 900 vehicles so it looks huge. The ones that made it were very well entertained and had a wonderful time. I cannot think of a single person there whom will not be making the return trip next year for the next Rally. There will definitely be memories of this that will last a lifetime. Next years is already being planned and will grow by leaps and bounds.

I held a huge blow-out bash for my 18th B-day party (seems like decades ago now). There were about 175-200 people there. To look at the pictures that one of my buddies took, you'd think there were no more than 15-16, total. I was hoping it was the same here (looked small, but was a huge blow-out), plus I know a few guys flew in rather than bringing their rigs.

Looking through Rollies pics, some seemed either very early morning or late evening (long shadows). I was curious what the maximum number of people was during the day and if many locals made it in.

But hey, if all of those involved that put in countless, maybe even thankless hours of their free time to this event are happy, then I'm glad for all and still wish I could have made it!

I hope ya'll bought some pics from Ken (Photoline) to make it worth his while! He generally doesn't do small shows (less than 500 vehicles, I'd say), but since he was traveling out that way and had an open weekend, he made an exception. He's a nice guy and I hope ya'll arranged for his return next year. The first year of any major event is alway the toughest, b/c you have nothing to gauge it by, I'm already trying to see about making next years!!

Besides that, I saw at least one cool shirt w/the National logo on it (pic #40, the blonde) and was wondering if anyone *ahem* made any arrangements for me to get my hands on a few?

Thanks,
Randy

Next years Rally will be in KC again and the dates will be announced soon. Peggy has to nail down a the exact date the she will publish it. We are already started in the planning stages and will have a whole year to get the next one put together so expect huge additions and many many added events.

Randy, yes there are shirts still available. And yes these were taken early and late, as I was in some of the events and also had my attention being grabbed by many people I didn't get to take pictures all day long. More are being added from other cameras as well so the album will be growing.

Photoline did well and sold some pictures, they commented it was a pretty good event for our first year and they look forward to returning next year.

On a side note, there was another "all truck" rally going on in KC this weekend and a few of there members came over to see our event. So the did get around and we were noticed.

If it's in KC again, count me in again, and if we reserve motel rooms, I want one. That drive home last night was the pits. Not helped by a well-developed sunburn, either.

I have to say that the turnout looked pretty darn good for only having 3 months to put it together. My hat is off to all of those that made it happen this year. My only regret is that I could not attend. But there will be nothing short of a national disaster that will keep me away next year!!!

Talking

Thanks to everyone for making a new member feel so welcome at the meet. Everyone went above and beyond making me feel included although I have only been monitoring this site for a week. And a really special thank you for the surprise gift at the banquet. It was very unexpected, and appreciated.

The rally was a huge blast, and even got some fancy "window tinting" to boot. I will definately be there next year helping Chad with the security.

Thanks again everyone.

Hey Chad you deserved it. We wished we could have done more. Thanks for the bar stool scooter you brought there. It was a blast. For those who don't know, Chad provided the sound entertainment for us.

Well on Friday night some miscretant broke out the rear window of his truck and stole some of Chad's stuff. Namely his laptop and clothes duffle. Chad took it in stride and went to walmart the morning and bought some clothes and some Cd's so that he could still play music for everyone.

SO THANK YOU CHAD! You went way more we could have asked.
