This year, Russ and I decided to publicize it more than we have in the past. Scooter Joe also contacted several of his friends from the Central Florida area to see if they would be interested in coming. Russ sent invitations to every scooterist on his facebook pages and got some good results.
We had a large group from that area come in, most of them Saturday night, and they joined us.
The weather was threatening, but we got no rain. It was chilly and a bit windy, but everyone made it and appeared to have a good ride.
Those coming included some Cannonball alumni, Helix Geoff and JimT among the crowd. Alex and Eddie came up from the Orlando area. Many whom I didn't know came as well.
It was bigger than ever, Russ counted 43 scooters, and I hope that they all come back with their friends in the future.
I found it to be another great reason to ride with my friends.
