2000 Father's Day Run

June 10 & 11 marked our 4th annual running of the Father's Day Club Run in Pike County. With a record number of RSVP's, we planned our weekend for 190 guests driving 89 Jeeps. To accommodate the largest crowd ever, Tim Miller coordinated 4 trails for Saturday's festivities. We ran Black Oak Run, Murphy's Law, Lake Shore Drive, & Suzy's Knob. Everyone met at the VFW in Pittsfield for the organized chaos of trail signup, lineup and departure.

Sharon and Virginia Williams coordinated the meal of chicken, beans, mac & cheese, potato salad, rolls, and more sweets for dessert than you could possibly sample. The meal was delicious and despite the intermittent thundershowers, we enjoyed the evening of camaraderie. O.R. emcee'd a brief meeting and the club collected over $300 for Operation Cool of Pike County, thanks to the efforts of MaryAnn Callarman and Claudette Rego, with their "Crash Test Dummies" (Sparky and Snapshot).
We awarded two trophy's - one to Carl 'Stuck' Seymour for the outstanding achievement of most winches required at one time to pull him out (3) and a second trophy for the Good Samaritan award went to Tank Schultz. Tank fired up his welder several times on the trail to assist his fellow Jeepers. Rooster and friends (Chris, Tyler and Michael) provided entertainment for all with their puddle jumping antics and the late crowd gathered around the campfire for a game that Gina Zoetvelt introduced us to. (You'll have to ask her about that one...just don't say her name or cross your legs or touch your face with your fingers when you ask!)steve

Sunday's trail rides were canceled due to the deluge of rain. Rooster made several trips to the banks of 6 Mile Creek River for viewing before the water was so high in one of our feeder creeks that he could no longer drive through it.

All in all it was the best weekend of wheelin' we've had down at our place in quite a while. Thanks to everyone who made it possible - especially the Brat Pack who came down early to assist in clearing the trails and general preparation. Thanks Mikey, Spanky, Sparky, and Rooster for all your help! We are looking forward to doing it again next year!
