Wheelin’ Walla Walla

8 Sep

We were at the Wheelin’ Walla Walla Show and Shine yesterday. With the help of Travis and Swan Eaton, Rick Lentz, Tammye, Tom Woods and Rick Laws we sold $550 in ticket. In fact we sold every ticket we had. The only unsold tickets are the ones that the members are holding. No trophies this time. The only trophies that went to bikes were a couple of HD Road Kings. Well, what do car show judges know about motorcycles?
