    10th Annual CTHR Aug 3-4, 2019

    Been that kind of year, haven't gotten to posting up about this year's rally. 10th annual organized rally, not including the initial wrenchday at dagus to put his bike together. How did we get here?

    Sometime in 2008 Doug takes his bike apart. In 2009 Doug gets a bunch of guys together to start putting it back together. Gino, Parc, 6, BTT, Slapi. Maybe a few others.
    • 2010 Doug decides let's do it again and organizes the first official CTHR. Chilling at the Coop on Saturday and BTT plays rabbit on Sunday after breakfast at The Last Drop cafe.
    • 2011 Doug hosts again, neighbors are annoyed, cops are called. A Saint Bernard is traumatized. Still a great day is had.
    • 2012 I host the Saturday get together, you all are introduced to Brazilian BBQ and the meat sweats. The "No Whiskey for Parc" rule comes into existence.
    • 2013 My second and final year hosting at the Hawthorne homestead. More meat sweats, lots of good times.
    • 2014 Venue moved to White Plains. Neighbors are amused. 6 points out I have enough spare parts to build another bike and proceeds to do so.
    • 2015-2017 BBQ, meat sweats, wrenching, lather, rinse, repeat.
    • 2018 I take a new job. Venue moved to Elmira. A lot more space, maybe too much alcohol, I teach a butcher how to cut up a cow like a Brazilian so still plenty of BBQ.
    With that kind of history, how could you miss this one? So who's coming?

      I'll be there. Tony and Tess will be there. Eugene will be there assuming he's done randomly losing organs.

      The real question is, will our bikes finally be there

                    Yup. Started as the Connecticut Hawk Rally, I didn't want to change the name, so we kept calling it CTHR since we were riding in CT anyways. When I moved it up to Elmira we decided to keep it CTHR, referred to as Chuck's THE Hawk Rally, currently located in Elmira, NY. So you coming?

                            Sweet -- yeah, I need to see if I have anything else going on, but right now, planning on it. I used to ride from ME down to FEHR in GA, so this is no biggie.
