    Nah just a few days and some great miles - last year KayTwo left SC in the rain to pick me up in Wisconsin then off to MN to pick up exharleyrider then to the Badlands, Custer, Needles, Mt Rushmore, Cody, Bear Tooth Pass, and then picked up @Slinglow' and hit Glacier National Park before crossing the border to get to Calgary and pick up Sarah from the airport and then a quick ride to Sundre for one of the BEST Slingshot rally's in North America


    Some of my best days in the Slingshot with great friends were on the way to SlingFest. Wish I could get the time away from the office to do it again

  • Thanks for posting Doug I can use all the help I can get. Planning pretty much been sucking up all my time. Gonna have to try rectuit some people to help me out for next year. Just a ton of work for just 2 of us. Not sure how to proceed there. I have a few ideas but will have to wait until after the event.

    Much love brothers 👍👍👍

    We'll talk! I'm bringing some items for the raffle as well.

    Is that a metric ton??? I don't know if that's more or less...

  • One of the local slingshot owners hydroplaned and crashed last night. Got the text at 3am. Kinda sucked the life outa me a bit. Sling is totalled and thier busted up pretty good. They'll recover looks like so thank God for that.

  • You have no idea how much I want to go this year. But.. the family made other plans for me.

    Next year I'm blocking out a 4 week period so there's no conflicts. Riding to Sundre is like riding to Sturgis. It's the best!

    I'm going to miss your company. It looks like a solo ride up for me, then will pick Sara up at the Calgary airport. Where did you end up stopping for the night on your way up last year? Who is going to win half the prizes in the raffle this year?:00000436:

    I stopped in Skookumchuck, but Radium Hot Springs would have been a better choice (There's food and gas). It's also where you break off to Hwy 93. I missed that turn and added a 100 miles my trip. The gas station doesn't open until 7am so you should fuel up when you roll in.

    It's your turn to win this year. :)

  • Here's my Facebook post in regards to drag racing on Friday.


    Ok here's some more info on drag racing. It all started last year we wanted to do Drag racing at Slingfest and found the Didsbury car club did that sort of thing. Only thing was they do an event the same weekend as Slingfest so it was a no go. Thier event is Saturday and Sunday but they set up on Friday night. So I approached Dana Munn club president about the Slingshots racing on Friday night. And he made it happen. The members of the car club will be volunteering thier Friday night to help out as well. Here's what we get. 1/8 mile Drag racing. You get a time slip with your 60 foot time 1/8 mile time and overall speed. They will be doing BHT track prep as well so it's nice and sticky. Ball is in our court now just gotta get people and thier Slingshots to turn up. Pretty excited this should be really cool. Special thanks to Dana and the Didsbury car club for believing in us and going to bat for us. Also a special thank you to the Airdrie Oilmen's Association and the Bikes and Bulls event for allowing us to do it as well. You guys are awesome thank you so much!!
