    Heidi and I checked into the hotel early to relax a minute but we are on our way to the park shortly. I did stop and get some Doritos and Cheetos (hoping Vince would show up!). V/r Shawn

    Sorry I didn't make it out there guys, I thought I would feel better to meet up with you all. But not so much, I was really looking forward to meeting you all. I'm sure you are having a good time. Be careful on your way back home.

    What a FANTASTIC couple of days in Nashville !!
    Thank you to EVERYBODY who came from many long distances to make this a memorable Event and very likely this IS the 1st ANNUAL Event :D
    Many new friendships made with an awesome group of folks! :)
    I thought that I'd share a few more interesting notes:
    An organization called "RIDE NASHVILLE" was having a very Large Event called "Tour De Nashville" on the same Greenway Trail, and they were Very Kind to allow us to "Crash their Party" at a place called Morgan Park. At this park they were having a Huge outdoor party that was basically the "wrap-up celebration" to their ride of about 40 miles, or so...... ( Held this same Saturday every year )
    At Morgan Park there were Food Trucks, Beer & Spirits Tents and trailers, specialty retailers with Kiosks, and a Stage with bands playing!!
    We really LUCKED-OUT to have such a nice Mid-Ride break with this big crowd!! They were ALL digging our Vintage Rides !!

    We had right at 40 participants in our Vintage Ride! What a Great turn-out for this 1st Gathering.........
    When all of our bikes were lined up ( Pre-ride) I thought I'd take a count of the Variety of "Head Badges" to report to this forum.......
    Here you go: Schwinn (8) -- Shelby (3) -- JC Higgins (3) -- Raleigh (2) -- Roadmaster (2) -- Western Flyer (2) -- Firestone (1) -- Goodyear (1) --
    AMC (1) -- Murray (1) -- Evans Colson (1) -- Packard (1) -- Admiral (1) -- Standard (Miami) (1) -- Elgin (1) -- Liberty (1) -- Dayton (1) --
    Trojan (1) -- Mead (1) -- Iver Johnson (1) -- Guaranty (1) -- Swarthmore (1) -- Monark (1)

    The Weather turned out just FINE ! (although a BIT HOT:eek:) -- NO rain or storms like the Weather "Forecasters"?? :confused: were predicting all week .......
    Many thanks to the 2 Clubs: Gateway Coasters (Rob-Rollfaster) & Hurricane Coasters (Don-Schwinndoggy) for brainstorming this event!
    And a special "Tip-'o-the-Hat" Thanks to Shawn (Freqman1) who scoped-out the Greenway Trail and the secure/convenient parking for us all ......
    Just a super-fine combined effort, from so many folks, made this a fantastic couple of days! CHEERS!! :cool: CCR Dave

    Sorry I missed out yesterday! I did manage to weasel out of work in hopes of coming out, but ended up with a surprise visit from my son and his girlfriend who drove in from Memphis on Friday night. As much as I hoped to make the ride, as an empty nester father I cherish the small amounts of time that I get to spend with my kids!
    Maybe next year........
