Hi Great Lakers!!!

The 'Jeep the Mac' event in St. Ignace was an outstanding event!!!

Kari Dunlap (VP), Donnie Dunlap (Trail Ride Chairperson) and I had the honor to staff the GLFWDA 'tent' at the event, and it went extremely well! We made a number of good contacts, put some new members on the books, and there's a UP Club that is looking at the association!

I have some pics from the event out on our Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/pg/GLFWDA/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1453747248024726

President - GLFWDA

PS: And we're all going to be at Drummond Island on Saturday for the second part of 'Jeep the Mac'!!!

PPS: Quick unabashed sidebar: We had three GLFWDA members staffing our booth today, and it worked extremely well because one or two people weren't 'saddled' with the booth all day and we could take 'turns' checking things out, getting something to eat, or just taking a quick break. The reason for saying this? It makes staffing our events a lot easier when we have enough members to 'spread the load'!!!!

PPS - I expect to be able to participate in 2018 and will offer to assist in the tent at that time :woot:
