Hello Ralf.
Hope your feeling better!

Ride safe, Ted

PS: To those that don't know, Ralf was last years "OtP" Winner.
       He escorted Mark and Dan when they went OtP and is also a personal good friend of mine.
         He became ill several months after his ride, and has been on our minds.

I'm in.  I love OTP and what it does.  Thanks to the people that have decided to not let it die.  Ted, you're the best along with all the others.

The vote has been called and the vote has been been taken. Lets roll.

Reading Mark's note, it appears that the BoD has approved our request.
Soooo, let's do this....

Start sending in your Nominations.   {For now, PM them to me}...
I'll post the Nominee requirements below so that you'll know who you can nominate...

Ride safe, Ted

1. "OtP" Team and past "OtP" Travelers are NOT eligible. (gloom, I hate rule #1)
 2. Nominee must be a "current" COG or GCE member.
 3. Nominee must have put on COG/GCE Events, Sponsored "OtP" Travelers, been a Team Leader on a COG/GCE National,
      held a Club Office, or have a history of helping the Clubs as a "worker".
4. Nominee will be required to fill out a questionnaire on themselves.
      (The answers will be used to determine eligibility and as a means of introducing the Nominee to the club.
 5. Nominee must be willing (and able) to assume expenses "above "what is collected.
       (approximate "out of pocket" trip expense may be $2000)
 6. Nominee must have (or be-able to get) a passport.

14. "Traveler" must help future "Nominee's/Traveler's" for a period of 2 years after his trip.
         {NOTE: This was added so that the Traveler can help future "nominee's/Travelers by sharing his/her "OtP" experience}

NOTE: Volunteer needed to share room with "Traveler".
              Requirement's; "Must snore loudly" and/or "shower seldom".
                (We want nothing but the best for our Traveler)

Send grateful donations to OTP.USA@cox.net via paypal. And Thank you in advance. If paypal is not an option for you send an email to the same addy and we will provide you with a physical address to send a check to. Nominations can also be sent to the same email address OTP.USA@cox.net. Bless all of you for the support of a truly grass roots program that has no equal in the motorcycling community. You all need to be very proud of yourselves. I know I am very proud of you and do not hesitate to brag upon your accomplishments whenever discussing with the industry representatives. To be honest GWRA, HOG and BMWMOA are kinda pissed about what you have accomplished. Let's keep them upset ;)  :) :beerchug:

I‘m very proud to be a member of COG and GCE. 

So many supporters! :bravo_2:

And I‘m honored to be able to help that OTP keeping alive.

Yes Ted, as a former OTP traveler I will do what I can
not only to support OTP, I will push it!

Over the Pond is a great exchange program between
COG members  :08: and GCE members

Since my unpredictable travel schedule prevents me from supporting the club the way many others do, I see the OtP as a way to do what I can.  I have a few friends/neighbors who are HD guys and they're quite intrigued with OtP.  They can't believe that we actually exchange riders for a couple weeks and travel each other's respective country (countries?), paid for by nothing more than donations!  Thank you, COG brothers and sisters, for giving me yet another reason for taking pride in riding my gorgeous, reliable, FAST riceburner, as they love to call her.  Ah, jealousy is such an ugly character trait...

OtP contribution gladly and proudly on the way!
