    Yep! We missed a shower around 1:00 that I was happy about. It got a little toasty but I shall not complain. Compared to other parts of the country, it was magnificent! I was in that black long sleeve for majority of the day and didn't mind. It was a heck of a turnout! Best one in about 5 years. We made a lot of people happy yesterday, I call it a great day! Just got back home, I think it's nap time and hot tub time after that! Having a little celebration party this evening with all of our amazing friends that helped us pull this thing off! It takes a team!

    Man for what it’s worth thank you from the community. That is a great thing. Making a lot of people happy is why everyone should get out of bed everyday. I help out at our towns Easter egg hunt and there isn’t a better feeling in the world than seeing happy folks. It does take a team but it also takes a big heart. I think it’s awesome rest up and it’s time to think of next year!!!

    Thanks @Lil G! That's what it's all about! Making smiles, making friends and making memories, for us and the community. There's already plans for next year, drastic changes, hopefully for the good! It'll be fun no matter what!

    Little bit of exciting update here... We've had a couple of meetings with town council and event coordinators from Summit Healthcare Group, which wants to be a huge part of this event, and we will be moving the event into either Show Low or Pinetop next year. 2019 proceeds will be going towards the cancer research center that is actually currently being built (and I helped plumb earlier this year). The date is actually being pushed back to September 28th and we are incorporating local breweries to help make this an Octoberfest type of event! We are having another meeting in a few weeks and hope to lock down a few more details, this thing might be getting rowdy next year! Haha! We have 3 bands already committed, all of our vendors want to return plus, Summit has about twice as many vendors as us that will be there. We are going to try to incorporate the Run of the Pines car show that happens this same weekend, (I walked around it all day today).
    We're also looking at having a main event on Memorial Day weekend in another town (TBA) but we'll have to see how the fine print works out. Lots of exciting stuff happening here! I can't wait to see how next year turns out!
