Hey, Chuckissimo (He's THE Chuck of all Chucks) -

That was a great little party you put on this past weekend. Great to see you and everyone else there.

Plenty of others will comment on the seminar - I had to slip out quietly and take a break in the Jacuzzi, while y'all were listening to the various presentations. But hanging out with everyone in the lounge at the Courtyard Marriott and talking about bikes for three hours was cool. Then, we strolled to the new location for dinner Saturday night - would it be up to our high standards? We were curious to see what you had in store. But Cesare and his staff at that fabulous Sicilian Restaurant were awesome. And the food...to die for. We're talking seven or eight courses, not counting dessert. Delicioso! And the ambiance was warm and friendly. Just perfect for our wild and crazy bunch.

Sunday brought clear blue skies and pleasant warm breezes for the Concorso and Masi Fiesta. Deals were being made at a fever pitch, bikes kept rolling in, and more and more people filled the beautiful park. Lunch was served, then it was back to ogling the steel beauties. The day ended with awards for the best bikes, and MASI wine and acrylic trophies were distributed to the winners of the Masi Fiesta Judging. A nice touch, Charles A. - BRAVO!

All in all, it was a grand affair, and Chuck...you can now kick back, breathe a sigh of relief, and know that you brought a lot of people and a lot of very nice bikes together for what was a truly wonderful event.

Thanks. Mille Grazie. Bravo!
