Ok i was there today setting up the show On my way I used my Garmin GPS just to double check it did NOT take me to the building i was 1/2 mile east. So Was it my gps?? I did not try map quest?

Easy rule of thumb when your on Laraway the building is west of gas city.
As your driving west on laraway you will see the rt 66 tracks HUGE set of bleachers the building is right across the street from them.
The sign out front says JOLIET JUNIOR COLLEGE and in the parking lot is Semi trucks that say learn how to drive on the side of them You cant miss them.

Please remember to bring your bike stands and know your class.

Man that 26 inch stroker and that multi ano Specialized are bad azz! Who made the Stroker? Some heavy hitters in the classes for sure. Wish I could come, looked allot more fun than finishing drywall in my basement for sure but gotta get bike/pool room done, the appraiser comes next week for the refi

Thanks for bringing the frame and getting it to James Tim (IMG:style_emoticons/default/drinks.gif)

Guys I dont know where to begin,
First and the most important I want to thank my Wife She has stuck by my side with BICYCLES like no other woman I know would, Little history our family started in 2000 volunteering at our local track & racing bmx nationals 2 of those years one of my child earned 20,000 point club 2 years in a row along with many state ,redline, district and NAG plates. In 2005 My family and a group of parents built Freedom bmx track with my wife being resposible for the paperwork while she was in school full time . In 2010 she let me start a Local bike shop here in town again dealing with all the paper work. With that we have 4 children of our own with many foster children coming in and out of our house thru those 12 years.
There is more but i dont want to bore you guys i think you get the idea.

I just want to THANK by wife for dealing with my love for bicycle,
and that I LOVE HER MORE THAN ANYTING and couldnt do it with out her help and support!

Second the personal friends, family and volunteers that help go that extra mile to help plan ,orginize ,and to help get it done year after year there isnt enough words and graditude, Them are the People who go out of there way to help make it what it is and go unrecognized I THANK YOU VERY MUCH ! it couldnt be done with out your help !

Third Nick over at the Midwest donation program for getting the Best of show trophy done for us 2 years now , He also built the Traveling trophy Jason was awarded. AWSOME ART WORK THANK YOU !

Fourth the people who support the event Every year it gets bigger more participation the more interest we get in people wanting to be sponsors. Thank you for coming and I hope everyone had a GREAT time and continues to support the even for years to come.

Fifth The people who donated parts out of there personal collections and Joliet College for letting us use the building. Thanks again to The coffee guy I didnt have time to meet,
SE, Porkchop, Chicago White sox, Hooters, Terrible one, Lexco, United, Willinois, and many others who supported the event this year and years past.

WE HAD COUNTED 288 BIKES around 2:00, we had over 30 table vendors selling parts.

This was the shows biggest year yet !

We are always looking for help at the track and with the show or conections to get things done if anyone in the community can help drop me a line we would love to have ya !

Thanks again and Mc Cormick Place were comin , Ed

Ed,

Just wanted to thank you, your wife, all the staff, sponsors, and whoever I missed a big thanks for putting on such a gnarly gathering. The venue, food, flatland show, tons of vending, and tons of great bike enthusiasts to allow us to share our love for the sport/hobby of BMX!

Really appreciate your passion for BMX and looking forward to 2013!!!

JT
