It was one year ago this month that Inland Prerunners had its first meeting. We didn't know what the results would be that first time. The only publicity we'd done was pass out some flyers to prerunners we'd see on the streets. We hoped for about 15 trucks, but over 35 showed up to that first meeting and it's been getting better ever since! We have almost 100 members now and over 20 businesses that offer them discounts on the stuff they need to keep building (as we all know, the curse of the prerunner is: IT'S NEVER FINISHED!). We've volunteered for over a season's worth of MDR races and helped to make the desert a cleaner place. We've worked hard to make a quality website. We've made some fantastic friends and had a whole helluva lot of fun! What a wonderful year it's been and we're excited about the future, too.
This weekend (May 5th & 6th) we're celebrating in a big way. Everyone's invited so tell your friends and pass the word! May 5th at noon we'll be hanging out with the Jeff & Gary Deaver and the rest of the folks at Deaver Springs in Santa Ana. They've gone all out with a D.J., about 12 feet of sandwich, and Archie's Ice Cream will be there, too. They'll be demonstrating an install on a leaf pack and shackle flip for those interested. They'll also have race packs and prerunner packs available for 20% off that day as well as some assorted goodies for sale. And, of course, there will be prerunners galore in the parking lot. Deaver Springs is a historic landmark and they use 100 year old leather belt driven machines. They even pound out the leaves on anvils! Seeing that alone is worth visiting the shop. We have had a great response from people who will be attending and we hope everyone can make it out!
Sunday May 6th we will be having our regular monthly meeting in Riverside at Farmer Boys and perhaps some fun in the dirt afterwards (so stick around).
Thanks to everyone who helped make IP a success. I shouldn't even have to say I've said it soooo many times before, but it's so damn true I'll go ahead and say it again...WE COULD NOT DO IT WITHOUT YOU (EVERY MEMBER, EVERY SPONSOR, EVERY PERSON WHO HAS GIVEN A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT AND SUPPORT)!!!
See ya'll this weekend!
