Anybody going to Big Ray's BBQ in Allen for the RTE? I didn't go last year so I didn't get an e-mail this year but I think it is on Saturday 2/23. IF (and that's a big if) I get a hall pass I might ride up there if some of my friends will be there.

The weather looks awesome – 51 degrees over Friday night and warming to 64 on Saturday.* No excuses this year.* Get your Butts on the road.* See you next weekend.* The scoop, again (with some added notes):

Defective Gene Pool
8th Annual Meeting of Defectives and Ride to Eat
SPECIAL EVENT: Tom Loftus Hall of Fame Induction
*
The 8th*annual meeting of this group of “Defectives” on Saturday, February 23, 2019 will honor a special inductee into the DGP Hall of Fame!* Join us as we celebrate the induction of one of the most prolific IBR riders of all time, the late great Tom Loftus.* It doesn’t get much more “Defective” than 7 IBR finishes (3rd*all time) in 10 attempts (currently the most all time), 4 Gold Medal Finishes, a total of 89,026 IBR miles (2nd*all time), and twice on the list of highest IBR miles in a single rally (2005 & 2011).*

Tom left us earlier this year as most of you know, after a long illness.* Let’s all come out and honor him in our fully unique “Defective” way and acknowledge his legendary riding greatness.* Additionally, early arriver’s will be gathering on Friday night, February 22nd, at Two Rows restaurant in Allen, TX which is next door to the Hilton Garden Inn, the two venues which will serve as our unofficial RTE headquarters.* We plan to have an empty chair in honor of Tom.* Here’s the links:

The "Pool" was formed by a few past IBR finishers to give LD riders and potential LD riders an opportunity to swap lies, renew old acquaintances, encourage new participants to the sport, and generally to celebrate the defective gene that runs common to us all.* Other less notable pursuits may ensue.* Projected attendees include several past IBR finishers and a host of LD riders with significant rally and IBA ride experience.* If you feel you have the "defective gene" that causes this madness or you just like to gawk at weird people, please join us for this enlightening gathering.
