Do you mind if we ask the mods to put the VTJ on the forums rally schedule?
Why not?

Rich,
I just added VTJ to the Rally Calendar. You might want to check my attempt to see if you would add any other information....

it WILL make headlines and is truly news worthy.

i haven't checked the schedule yet, schedules can change...

besides i'm a PIE-rate and not subject to schedules or rules, only TREATies...

yes pie could be had at happy hour, but ANY hour with pie is happy!

again it is wonderful that rich has arrange a nice venue for this celebration and is handling ancillary activities...

but the first i.m.p.r. belongs to the folks sharing the pies... it's a pie-roots effort.

-so who else will bring pie?

-what day/s or night/s shall we have pie?

-shouldn't we embrace cobblers and tarts and other derivates of pie?

-how many fruits and flavors can we enjoy?

so while o'62 has offered up some peach, what ELSE will there be?

i've read that spring water makes a wonderful beverage with pie...

will there me MORE PIES springing up?

a slice of peace to all...

1) Abe, you can steal any text from the official Jam website to add to the forums "rally calendar" description. If you can, it would be nice to have a link to this thread also.

2) I should be clear, I didn't do all the work for this. Colin Hyde of GSM Vehicles discovered the location and has being handling a lot of logistics; Steve Hingtgen of Vintage Trailer Supply came up with the idea and is handling sign-ups etc; Brett Greiveldinger has been doing huge work in the background arranging sponsorship and prizes; and I'm just part of the team. So they deserve the praise (and blame, if any!) as much as me.

3) I think 2air's idea of the I.M.P.R is superb, and I'll ask my other half if we can contribute to the PIE-rate theme, but would somebody please adjust his medication today?

ok then, i had a feeling u were just the pretty face on this thing...

so heavy praise (and a slice of pie) for colin, steve, brett too!

and double crusted kudos to the big E who will make a fine pie to be sure...

it's not my medication,
but just the anticipation...

of pie in many flavors,
small slices are BIGf favors...

the gathering will be nice
bring a plate and have a slice

with a nod to the planners
who now are really JAMmers...

come one come all to the v.t.j.i.m.p.r.

(it must be the sun, elevation and 55mph tail wind...

pushing me across the HIGH points of wyoming, in search of pie)

cheers

So by reading this I an assuming you are planning to attend. We have had our differences over the past months and 2Air, I want to bury the pie. What pie can I bake you. Name it and it will be yours. Gary chose peach, I am baking a coconut cream for myself, what will be your choice? Three is a much more balanced number anyhow... You chose and we will all sit down at a round pie table...

Who Wants Pie?

Softer than a lullabye

Deeper than the midnight sky

Soulful as a baby's cry

My Sweet Potato Pie

well in spirit at least.

and i'm a berry pie man....

any fruit is great, but every berry nature has created is made better in a pie...

just no rhubarb or mince meat or okra pie...

and to borrow a pie thought from m'blue,

how's the pizza pie in saratoga?

cheers

I am sorry, I am somewhat slow on the up take... you are or are not coming?

I am not bringing pie, I am baking it fresh on the spot. A berry pie is no problem. So now I have three to make. A berry pie, a peach pie, and a coconut creme. This is going to one hell of a good time. Hope Colin and Steve will join Rich for a slice.

trailer Talk

I just read the tentative schedule and see that the trailer talk radio show will be there Saturday. I talked to Sabrina Artel briefly during the last NH primary in Portsmouth. that's John Edwards "RV" in the background.

We sat inside talking about her show and she said while fiddling with mikes and wires that She would like to ask me a few questions about the primary......lucky for me they could not make the connection and I exited stage left. Being interveiwed in a canned ham could be very disarming and I could have gotten myself in trouble quickly.
