Thanks, We were working on a deal on a hard top for the M37 but I didn't see that fitting on your setup. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Saturday night dinner line up:

At the dinner there are some giveaways. I haven't been here since 2015 and wanted to bring some items to show appreciation for the event. We laser cut the ornaments and they were handed out to all that attended. We made 5 bullets. The were made from solid copper and we pressed the tips in. They were engraved with the event name and year. The grill is made from 11 ga SS and breaks down for transport/storage. We also cut the Graves logo in the front with the American flag on the other side.

Made the trip home today. Had a good time and look forward to going back. If any of you have the opportunity to attend this event in the future I highly recommend going.

Any ideas of selling the grill with an outline of a M151 one one side and the flag on the other?
I would be willing to buy at least one.
Thanks

I've thought about taking some to shows as you have described. The version shown has some labor involved in the manufacturing compared to the standard rolled fire ring. I'd have to look at what it would cost as this version might be a little pricey. This style was made for giveaways.

Had a great time, good seeing you again Guy, Blake, and others, been too long, my friend Richard (blue willis) had a great time also. Already planning for next year.

Still amazed how well the 151's perform, we were in some pretty heavy trails, steep up and down and she never stumbled!

I've been collecting photos that have been posted by folks who attended from various places on the internet and have combined them into a collection on Flickr...linked to the event's webpage.

The direct link for those who wish to view them without having to visit multiple websites...

Many thanks to all who attended and helped make the event worth all the prep work..

A big shoutout to Guy for providing goodies that we gave away to folks who attended and that we used for prizes after the Saturday night supper, especially for the stove that was presented to Steve and Laura.

A huge shoutout to Steve, Laura, and Khloe for al they do year round in support of the event including organizing work weekends clearing trails as well as leading rides during the event and holding the truck games and providing prizes (and helping to keep my sane...).

A big thank you to the rest of the team at Graves Mountain, member of Rock Ridge Offroad, and my extended family for all the help and support during and before the event...

We are already planning for next year... same time, same location...
