Anybody good at T-Shirt design?

Fattees will once again be the official T-Shirt vendor for WestFest. But first, we need a design.

If you've got the talent and would like to see your work on the bodies of hundreds of WestFesters, PM me.

Sigh. Count me in.

Last year the best part for me was the Montana 1000 ride that took place the week before WestFest. Can I look forward to a similar treat this year?

:-)

I missed this gathering last year due to a job change. I think summer plans for 2011 are about to change.....

There's a thread in the PNW regionals about getting a contingent together to run the MT1000 again

Dr. Gadget and his daughter did it just fine on a big GS. We did encounter some mud on the lower alternate heading south from Ruby Dam. But it was nothing that wasn't insurmountable.

I'm guessing there'll be a planning page developed over the Spring to keep track of the new routing options. That'll probably be found over in the Pacific NWet section.

Post #57 and #58 that mud? I am sure it was more than a threat, it kicked our asses and turned us back on the alternate in the Gravelly's......we have unfinished business up there to tend to.

If any one has route suggestions speak up, should probably get a seperate planning page again like last year.

List me as "IN".....

And I have hope that Montana will indeed defrost by then!

I was able to get my two bikes out, start them and actually get to some lovely dry streets today to cruise a bit! My first chance since the ICE set in mid November. Felt ever so good!!!!

Thanks Dave for stepping up!!

Now I just need to know where and when the MT1000 crowd will be wandering by!
