Thanks for the pic's they are a credit to the forum in there clarity and fast loading with standard 56k modem. There are some very very nice gyros there keep them comming
04-12-2004, 04:58 PM
I wish I would have known I was going to be asked to speak at the banquet. I would have brought my sunglasses and worn them indoors rather than have the severe "racoon effect". I'll bet people got distracted from what I was trying to say.
04-12-2004, 06:32 PM
Tim there where a lot of people there with the racoon effect going on
04-12-2004, 08:15 PM
Excuse me as being dumb here but the question is "What is the racoon effect" some one please enlighten me. My comment was to pass on my approval of the forums good capacity to have such clear photos for us to see. thanks again to the people doing the good work. gyrodes

Racoons have a dark facial pattern that covers there eyes like a mask but their eyes show through.
04-12-2004, 08:34 PM
Gyro students' who had sunglasses on whilst there face was getting sunburned then get this same pattern.
04-12-2004, 08:38 PM
I can't believe you posted that Tim!!! Thanks for the laugh!
04-12-2004, 08:48 PM
Tim, Looking at a Racoon in my mirror each nite. Gosh am I sunburned
What a great way to get that way. I enjoyed it all, Work, and Fun. Looking forward to doing it again. Like Ron said you aint the only one!! Had a great time. Thanks to ALL. MJ :)
Got my Meds now starting to feel much better!!

Looks like I missed a GREAT time! I won't miss it next year!
What happened to Boo? Did he get hurt at Bensen days?
Great pics, Reminds me of last year when I got my first ride with Steve, I had already been bitten by the gyro bug, But Bensen days, got the gyro-bug's teeth set in real good!
04-13-2004, 04:07 AM
Where was Jamie B?
04-13-2004, 06:52 AM
Boo ran into Steves Motorcycle and dis located his shoulder I believe. Steve was very upset, It was a sad sight.
Jamie Bodie had posted on our Chapter 13 group list that he was going to be getting out of gyroplanes for a while and take up Hunting and Fishing. He said to look for him at ROC he would be there but wasn't planning to be at Bensen days.
To be honest things are very different at Chapter 13 than they were two or three years ago. We used to have 4 of our club members on the PRA board. Now all four have resigned or quit due to the "BS". We no longer have Dave Dewinter actively involved, now Jamie. Steve is moving across the country..... Times are a changing.

Des now you know what the Racoon Effect is LOL LMAO!
04-13-2004, 05:25 PM
Thanks for the explanation. Now I know that I look like that all the time as I work out in the sun all the time in gods own country Australia on the western side where we send all the crappy weather east to Aussie Paul and co LoL gyrodes
