Job well done to everyone that showed!

I think that we should do this sort of thing more often. Is it weird that we love to hurt so much? Pain is pleasure's evil twin.

Congrats to Mike... and well... everyone who braved Horse Killer 7 times. I'm afraid I might have been a DNF if I would have been there. Good Job.

Great Pictures and I believe Chop won another award, most layers worn. You looked grand
