Re: >>>> 107 Days to GO <<<<

MORE and RPI just finished working out the details with Yamaha, and the good news is that we will be donating two quads to this years raffle. There will be a Raptor 250 AND a Raptor 700 given away. Each winner will be able to pick them up through their local dealer as well. The tickets are on their way from the printer, and they are only $10 each this year.

We want to thank Yamaha, Jim, Ron, and the entire MORE family for letting us be a part of this great event again this year. We all need to do what we can in this tough economy to make this event awesome again this year. Just like Royal Purple has by doubling their donation to Cedars Sanai to $40,000!!

Re: >>>> 107 Days to GO <<<<

I'm gonna come out and say this, my wife called MORE a few months ago and the guy she talked to was rather rude to her while she was asking questions. She was all excited to race, but after speaking to the guy (not sure who it was honestly), she chose not to race. Bummer. Don't know if the guy was in a bad mood or what, but whatever the reason, they lost an entry because of his attitude.

That is too bad because you can ask anybody who has been to the first three races, and to a person, they will tell you this is the most fun you will ever have at a race. Remember this is all for the ladies and for Cedars Sanai. All proceeds (which last year exceeded $120,000) go to breast cancer research.

It is sad. My wife was all set to race, really excited about it. Was even going to bring her work on board as a sponsor. The guy that she spoke to was Ron. First impressions are everything and she was not impressed. We will just donate right to the source this year I guess. :(:(

Let your wife know that she will be racing with girls that want to be there and want to have fun. I was just in a MORE race and never seen nor met Ron. One guy is not the majority. Plus this is going to be my wifes first time in the driver's seat of our 5-1600 and she would like to race your wife.

First impressions aside Pat, you might ask her to reconsider. Everything that Kevin said is true tenfold. My wifes first year she had a whatever attitude about it. After her first lap that year she was absolutely hooked. The donation is great and appreciated but nothing will replace the smiles, laughs, stories and comaraderie your wife will share with the other ladies for years. The emotions that the women show at this great event is priceless.

Simply put. Please give your wife the opportunity to race this thing. It is nothing like any other "Powder Puff" race and the energy in the air is simply unreal. I have gone as far as lining up a back up car since this race is the week after the SNORE 250 and I am racing that one too. My wife WILL NOT miss this race. Your's shouldn't either

Trust me guys. I have been trying. I would love her to do this race. She would rather race somewhere else than MORE though. I am really bummed. Like I said though, we are all about the cause. I thought it would have been really cool to see the company she works for make a sizable donation on behalf of an off road race, but that won't be the case unfortunately.

If you can get her out there to watch even one lap and watch the looks on the ladies faces she will never miss another one. If you need any help convincing her or have questions about the info that she was unable to get please let me know. I know Ron and Jim and will get you whatever info you need. By the way I am not saying that he wasn't rude or that I can blame her for being pissed. I would just hate to see her miss the opportunity. See you soon Pat!

I haven't thrown in the towel yet. If you have met my wife, she isn't one to get discouraged that easily. LOL. I'd be afraid of her pulling a Caspino and running over the timing trailer. HAHAHAHA. We shall see.......

She mentioned this to me too and I was super bummed to hear that she wasn't going to race... I know she would love it :D Keep working on her Pat!! I'll see if I can't talk her into it too :D LOL I'm a first impression type person too... so I can understand where she is coming from.
