Was a great day, what awesome results!
A few observations....Paul King definitely missed his calling, being a used car salesman on parramatta road, dressed in white slacks, white faux leather slip on dress shoes with little gold chain, pink polo shirt, reflector sunglasses and a solarium tan!
Michael( big chuck), he has realised his calling...This is one man who knows what the term delegate means, it was heard several times yesterday, mike can you do this or that?..only to see the big man get someone else to do it!..and he was quite open about it, this is success, because all people fell under his wicked spell and did what they were told!
Lee made me think of him as a rotary engine that had been hotted up to the hilt, he revved and revved and just kept on revving, and every now and then instead of backfiring like a rotary, he was heard to say "roger that"..what a worker he would be!
Mark( moggio) rolling up and attempting a mike(big chuck), but soon he fell under the big mans mysterious spell, and started selling raffle tickets, nice try big fella, lets face it, mike is the guru of looking like he is doing something( but doing nothing, but jibber jabbering ), and making every succumb to his wicked ways!
Gus(deadparrot) rolling up on a very rolly, raky, and lets face it, very heavy looking downhill bike, and it was making lots of noise, then i noticed it had no pedals, so i thought i better try and identify this orange and black beast, was it a Giant glory?, was it a specialized demo?, an intense m9?....tell me, what sort of downhill bike is a Harley Davidson, mustn't be that good, i haven't seen any of the top pro's on one?????
Myself, i left at 1.30pm to go and represent BMORC at the 4hour enduro race, Jeff and I represented so well in fact, we pulled the pin 3/4 of the way through the race, it being one of the worst days that i have ever ridden, heat and humidity were appalling, sponsored riders dropping like flies, but Jeff and I bravely plodded along, plodded being the operative word, both of us riding our 2nd and 3rd bikes, Jeff on an ancient schwinn, with terrible gears and suspension, me on a scott scale that was 2 sizes too small( i didn't want to get my evo muddy), but we battled on until we couldn't no more, this morning i am still shaking and wanting to vomit, but that might have something to do with guzzling 4 litres of soft drink and 2 violet crumbles and 3 packets of fizz wizz, oh what a health nut!
Good times for all!

Kingy is one heck of a character...That water selling was like some TV challenge where if he sold it all he would win a million dollars or something... yet he gave his all just for BMORC. The lines used were brilliant "You mate look like you are buying stuff for moving house, now you are going to get thirsty so you need some water..." . The stuff of legend!

Also an awesome effort organising the thing Kingy and a big one for Tim too with the raffle organisation and really everyone else who did helping out. Great effort.

I didn't even spot Michael and his delegating..... but come to think of it, yeah the sneaky fellow!! He did some great spruking too of the BBQ.

So a really great result with the funds raised too. I also think we enganged with a certain amount of the community and passed on the message of what we are trying to do which was good. One guy fully supported the idea of off-road cycling as he thought the less of those bikes on the road the better!

Oh and btw, Todd glad your race was horrible, just because they make the best stories Smiling

How dedicated are the BMORC crew
Led by fearless leader - Kingy
One person commented that it was the best run sausage sizzle at Bunnings he'd seen

When I turned up I had a laugh to myself
Gilbo and Tim sweating up a storm sizzling snags like madmen
Todd, Wes and Stephen preparing the bread
Jo and Gabby on the till and drinks
Mogg and Big Chuck selling raffle tickets like a house was up for grabs
What a slick machine and what a queue!

And plenty of people turning up throughout the day to help out - awesome

And Kingy - what can you say
He could sell water to an alcoholic - he probably did!

And Gus and Vince in those fetching aprons
I get a little light headed thinking about it - hubba hubba

Well done all. The Kings (Mr & Mrs) did a great job, as did all who turned up. Just call me blisters as I turned up when the work was over!

Todd, I have your raffle prize here but surprisingly it's just an empty bag! I'd speak to the organisers about this mate.
