Since I didn’t ride this year, I can only talk about the food and the people and let’s go out of order.
February of 2020 was the last time our club was face to face for the Winter breakfast. We had a nice time, it was attended well enough for a drive-in breakfast together. The board discussed if we should still have our annual awards banquet and auction and it was decided to hold off until we heard more about the pandemic that was just starting to feel real but still not on U.S. Soil.
That was it, then we had one more camp out later in the year for which 5 of us showed up but everything else our club was doing was cancelled.
The PDR weekend 2021 was the first time I had seen everyone in over a year.
There were a lot of hugs, a lot of stories about rides people had taken and even some faces of people who stepped away a few years ago and were back. The 4 hour evening spent was not enough time to catch up with everyone. I was really just HAPPY to see our wonderful members.
Riding brought us all together but the relationships, friendships and bonds we’ve formed on-road stay with us through a pandemic and at the camp site. I took a few photos below of everyone just having a wonderful time and I hope you can see the happiness in everyone’s faces.
