More and more enthusiasts show up early to enjoy the beautiful scenery, camaraderie and roads around the lake.  This year more than twenty such enthusiasts spent Wednesday night camping out under the stars at Big Cypress Marina.

The weather this year was the best seen for the rallye in a decade.  A little rain on and off Friday morning but Saturday and Sunday were sunny with clear skies, warm but not too hot.  We were very lucky.

This year's rallye honored "The Men of Twins".   The rallye T-shirt graphic was once again designed by our own Bob Cox.  It features three prominent figures linked to the success of the British vertical twin..


Engines are from left to right, BSA A10, Norton 500 Twin (Dommie), Triumph Speed Twin. 

Thanks go to Joe Edwards for filling in literally at the last minute for our usual Master of Ceremony Daryl Bane.  Joe did a superb job and didn't miss a beat.  Has anyone seen Daryl yet?

Once again Bob Speer did a fantastic job selling Rallye & Club T-shirts, pins and hats.  Thanks also go to Phil Dansby for coming up with Trophies and to Dean Baker for laying out our bike show area.  Thanks to Pistol for the bike show documentation and to Jeannie Henderson and Marlene
Gabrielson for organizing the ballot counting teams.  A big thanks go to Dicky Hunter for handling all the AMA insurance chores.  Thanks also go to Clay Walley and Randal Bird for rounding up door prizes.  Ray Donaldson, our Cub Treasurer did a super job managing the complex registration process.

Last but not least, perhaps the biggest thanks should go to our Rallye Chairman - Bruce Davidson, who worked his butt off many weeks before and during the Rallye.  Without his effort this year's Rallye could not have taken place or been the success it was.  Thanks Bruce!

To all those who made the pilgrimage - thanks for making this year's rallye one of our best.
