Just a brief post here before I'm off to cover bases and order parts for the coming week.
I want to thank every that showed up on Friday for the Grand Opening. After it was all done, I think we had around 70 people show up. That was so cool. And there were a few locals that were missing - but had legitimate reasons for not being here. They were here in spirit though!
A few snippets:
My dad running around taking pictures. I haven't had time to look at the ones on my camera yet.
Ryan stopping in and almost immediately putting him to work. Thanks man!
The Decorah hooligans. How cool is it that I have 'competitors' showing up? I mean really, I'm getting awesome support from those guys up there. I love the cycling community in this region.
All the familiar faces stopping in, well wishing, new faces asking great questions. Wow.
Kids freely mainlining the Rootbeer. That was funny.
Music! Will and Steven playing from 7:30 to 9 or so, then Lisa, Jake and Teya joining in after that till almost midnight. Am I going to turn into a music venue too? I'll need more room.
The short of it is this: I had a great time. Lisa had a great time. We hope y'all had a great time. Now we just need to find a reason to do it again!
I promise I'll look at pictures soon, and post the best ones!
