Personally I think it's a really good idea to show pictures during the event throughout. Showing different things that are going on to create excitement for people to go the following year who may or may not have gone to an event before.

we might want to be a little more selective though.  I'm not sure Rev Rider and the COGdom Yokel Band is really the advertising punch COG needs.   :D :D :D

From the lack of pictures and lack of reporting I doubt the national event even took place.

Seriously 😒

We were excited to follow along via pics.

Here's a link that might stir some posts. Probably 1,000 pics from the 2016 Backyard Rally.

I was told that there is a YouTube video of Rev Rider and the COG Land Yokel Band doing their Great FANTASTIC Sing along at the national.
Does anyone know where to find it?

Ride safe, Ted

Pics 3
The first pic is the other marker, the original stone where you can barely make out part of the A.

The third picture is the original marker for the KS-MO-OK border, but it had been defaced some time ago unfortunately.  It was replaced with a plaque which is nice (pic 2), but the original was cooler IMO.

Last pic- Lake view from the back of the Lodge!

I was told that there is a YouTube video of Rev Rider and the COG Land Yokel Band doing their Great FANTASTIC Sing-along at the National.    Does anyone know where to find it?

The video I'm referring to is {supposedly} on the COG Facebook page.
         But, I (and others) don't do Facebook....  :-X
Can someone, "please" post it here so others can enjoy it?

I know there was some really quality singing!!   :great:

Ride safe, Ted
