The Event - and My Ride with Jack Furrier

The First Ever Silent Auction and Dinner
Keep August 3 available - you won't be dissapointed if you spend the afternoon at a great event - two people $30 - you'll be fed, and entertained at the Maverick on E. Tanque Verde. We will have lots of great silent auction items including our first item - donated by Charlie Daniels himself. We have lots more cool stuff on the way - including for you Nascar fans - an autographed driving suit from Jeff Gordon, lots of other signed memorobilia.

Cost is just $20 or $30 for two and all proceeds go to Wounded Warrior Project and my friends in San Antonio - the Warrior and Family Support Center.
July 4th - riding with Jack Furrier

July 4th started early at the Jack Furrier's Tour for Tucson's Children - where over 1,000 riders lined up on Church street down town and beat the heat with a 6:00am start for the 27 mile fun ride - followed by a shorter kids ride (see Cody). It was the 15th year of what the biking community considers their star spangled wake up call on July 4th. It is a great event and we were able to talk to a lot of people about the Wounded Warrior Project and the upcoming charity event on August 3rd - one of our favorite entertainers - Rowdy Johnson - got up early to work the warrior tent while I was off riding!
