SpiderFest a great Success

The head count was very close to 100. We didn't get an exact count with people still out riding, changing, milling around smartly, etc. If didn't make it up, you missed a good one. Wow pretty much sums it up.

We raised $386 for ERTA. THANK YOU!

I've got a lot of people to thank which is always a great problem to have. The people that volunteer to make this type of stuff happen is just amazing.

Just a quick shout out to:

Clay County Parks - Thank you so much for allowing us access for trails as well as letting us host events every year

Platte Valley Bank - Lynn Horner Thanks for the HUGE grill and grilling since I was running around probably more than I was helping. Thanks Geoff for stepping up for the last round of burgers. Mmmmmm cheese!

In-A-Tub - Aaron Beeman Thanks for ALL the meat, stuff to go on it, cheese, napkins, utensils, I'm sure there was more

Paci's Cafe - Joe Thanks for some excellent beverages (around 140 some). Holy cow!

Paceline Products - Chris Thanks for the Chamois Butt'r and some other give aways

Smithville Trail Crew - You know who you are and you know what you have done to make it all happen. A special shout out to Steve Rice for the tractor time to mow the fields/trail. He still keeps coming back even with all the thorns in the tires he has to have repaired. Tim K - awesome salsa and trimming. Many others from the group that brought food and worked last week to make the trails awesome for last night.

The Trail Nerds - Bad Ben & Company Thanks for the homebrew and making it more than just an MTB ride. Glad to be able to partner up with trail runners and have both groups involved with the trails.

Earthriders MTB Club - Without members this stuff just wouldn't happen. Memberships help fund fun stuff like this, volunteer to make it happen and promote the sport.

I'm sure I missed something or somebody. Shout out if you can think of any I missed.

Ben
