Congrats Sturgis 2009 Trip Winners!
Welcome to our special edition 2009 Sturgis Giveaway newsletter. Thank you so much for coming out and making this one of the most memorable nights of my lifetime. Although the weather was stifling hot, at least it didn’t rain. Bill Church from Quaker Steak told me that it was one of the top 3 best bike nights ever!
We were supposed to draw for one lucky winner that would be taking whomever he/she wanted, but, on the way to The Lube, my husband and I were talking about a family trip we had to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances. Since we had already set aside the money for the trip, we thought that it would be a great surprise and really mean a lot more to our motorcycle community to draw for another lucky winner and put that money back into the economy. So, instead of two lucky people going to Sturgis, we are sending four!
The first lucky winner was Tony Wheeler of Tarpon Springs, Florida. Tony is taking his best friend Stan and their beautiful Harleys (and their beautiful wives). Tony will be shipping his Fat Boy and Stan will be shipping his Softail.
The second lucky winner was Melissa Smith of Pinellas Park, Florida. Melissa would like to give the trip to her father and brother.
I have quite a list of people to thank for helping make our 2009 Sturgis Giveaway such an extremely successful event: Bill Church and Quaker Steak and Lube for hosting the event, Ron and Debbie Galletti with Born To Ride Magazine and TV for helping promote the giveaway and the upcoming magazine and TV special, Tony Cianci with Full Throttle and Valerie Smith with Rider Now Productions and Mike Savidge with Go For A Ride magazine for covering the event, and Rick Rosen and Rebecca Bunetta with Motorcycle Freight (1-800-BIKE TOW) in helping secure the rooms at the Rapid City Quality Inn and transporting the bikes to Sturgis.
Most importantly, I want to extend my extreme heartfelt thanks to the people reading this email. Without you and your support over the last 9 years, none of this would have been possible. For that, I am endlessly grateful. We’ve had such a positive response to this year’s Sturgis Giveaway; will definitely be holding a 2010 Sturgis Giveaway next year! Thank you for all the thoughtful emails and kind words at the event. My firm and I are forever indebted to our local motorcycle community.
Please stay tuned for updates on the winners and make sure to check out the stories in the upcoming issues Born To Ride, Full Throttle, Go FAR magazine. Ron Galletti will be accompanying the winners to Sturgis and will be filming for a video documentary that will air on Born To Ride TV.
