For the third year in a row our friends on Kahshe Lake gathered to support our cause! As usual we all met at the
"The House of Mouse" to do the registrations and say hello to some old friends.

Image

Here is a view from the Mouse's deck overlooking beautiful Kahshe Lake

Image

The every hospitable Mrs. STG made us some Hot Chocolate and brought out some tasty baked goods,
THANK YOU Mrs. STG your such a wonderful hostess

Image

Here is our fearless leader giving us all one of his famous pep talks

Image

After registration we decided to pose for a group shot before we got on our sleds

Image

Unfortunately Mother Nature did NOT co-operate with us this year as ALL trails were closed in the area
but thankfully the ever resourceful STG managed to work a route through private land, side roads
and lakes so that we could at least get a bit of a ride in

Image

Image

Look out here comes the group

Image

And finally our always helpful sweeper Sherpa, thanks for watching out for us all, your a great sweeper!!!

After navigating the lakes, side roads and private lands we were a hungry bunch of sled heads so we
pulled in to have some good eats!
WOW did we ever eat too :doh2

Image

After lunch the Viper-mobile decided that she would be stubborn and blow up my recoil :mad
With some much needed help we got er fired back up and back on the road we go.
After dropping my sled at my trailer, our fearless leader offered me a ride with him.
Here I am praying that STG gives me a safe ride back to the house of mouse,
little did I know that I should have been praying for his sled instead :oops
I will NOT be the one to explain what happened for fear of the Mouses wrath :daxed

Image

And off we go!!!

Image

Last years top pledge earner John and his lovely wife graciously offered the use of their cottage for the
evenings festivities... What brave soles they are to invite a group of sledheads like us into their home :daxed
What a beautiful home it is too WOW, I can't wait to see the finished product...
Hint Hint, maybe an invite to do some sledding next year :wink

Image

Image

After a long day on the trails (OK roads :oops ) it was time to do some mingling with this fine group of people.
We ate some great food, drank some pop and generally had a blast with the most down to earth bunch
of people you could ever meet.
Alas all good things must come to an end so it was time to wrap things up and hand out the goodies
for our top pledge earner and announce the total monies raised!

We crowned a new leader this year so I think the competition is going to be very HEAVY,
next year within this group!
Congratulations Gord and THANK YOU for your continued support!

Image

I am very pleased to announce that Team Kahshe beat last years total and they had HALF
the people they did last year, OUTSTANDING job folks
The total raised this year was $4325.00

The Extreme Team would like to thank each and every member of Team Kahshe Lake and those that supported you!
Your continued support of our cause is very near and dear to our hearts.

If you ever get a chance to ride with any of these folks I suggest you do it, you will have the time of your life!

Thank You Team Kahshe Lake you folks ROCK :clap :clap :clap
Steve

Hey you guyz ! It turned out to be not a bad day at all. I was surely worried about he pledge levels with the wipe out of trails we had. It affected attendance, no doubt but thankfully we ended up with a few more bucks than last year.

I'll challenge anyone riding this year to beat our Dollars per Head OR our Dollars per mile ! :grin

Happy to do it and Happy that it is going to such an important cause.

Thanks to both Sherri and Steve for showing up and supporting our crazy little group. It means a lot to us to have you attend (even if neither of you brought a damn pledge form!!) :wink

All the very best for the big ride next month - I hope it's the best one ever !

A great time was had by all STG, I am so glad that I was able to attend, your crazy little group is right up my alley. :lol@u

SO.....how you make out with the STG Mobile??? :???

Good news or Bad. Either way it is under warrenty and you should have her back in no time. :cool

Having to live with Domino's comments will be the roughest part. :roll:


Everything is fine. And I've been entertaining myself by driving Domino crazy. That large "Bang" you heard last Tuesday was his head exploding. :grin :grin

UPDATE !

The new total is:

$4,400.00


We had a late cotribution that took us to 4,375 which didn't seem like the right number to me. Hey Steve ! Cough up 25 to give us a round number. HE DID !! :daxed Thanks Buddy !!

So, not a bad day after all. There was some snow, there was some ice; we got about 80km in on a ride and we raised:

$4,400.00


for the cause! :grin :grin :grin :grin
