This is a personal milestone for me, as it will be the 10th one in a row. 

Also it's the event that made me aware of how awesome PRA is.   That was basically life changing.

That is cool.  Hopefully the weather cooperates for your 10th anniversary.

I am getting a new knee on Halloween.  Hopefully, I can hobble out there to spectate.

I started out on Kwads.  Most of the guys I knew from those days are no longer in the sport except one.  Bike guys never quit lol.

Knee replacement?  seems like you're too young for one of those.

 Most are pretty happy with knee replacement.   Hope yours goes well.

Knee replacement?

Not a total replacement.

I lost my ACL 10 years ago at the Barbwire Enduro, and have been compensating since.  But now the extra strain on my MCL is taking it's toll ... and dirt biking has not been helping, I imagine.   ;)

So I am getting a ACL Replacement (cadaver), MCL Repair, and cartilage clean up.  It should take an hour or so.  Hoping for a speedy recovery so that I can ski with my daughter this winter.

Yep, 800ccs of 2-stroke 160 horsepower madness is waiting in the garage to be unleashed.

The crew was busily working on it this weekend.  The course sounds awesome, and the weather looks great.

That's how pavilion looked. I have no idea where the mud came from

other than a couple mud holes i didnt think pavillion was too bad. they were the same holes they have every year, i dont know why they don't do something to fix them.

Cato was cancellled, but the weather for Palmyra looks good!  Our PR guy has been promoting the heck out of this thing so there should be good attendance.

But not a single ad in the Craig's List Motorcycle Classifieds.

For the Monkey Butt, I found that posting a simple event ad in the Craig's List Motorcycle Classifieds pulls in a lot of riders (and spectators).

I am hoping they get good weather for this event!

Social media is often only good if you are previously linked or connected to location/website promoting/advertising.  (paid advertising excluded but I don't think that is what we are talking about!)

Matt has a very good point by advertising in a location that people just browse on a regular basis that aren't already connected to the moto community.  How you gonna get the massive amount of quad riders without craigslist!
