4th annual RG.Org/1st Annual Bill Watkins Memorial Run Patti's Grand Rivers Ky

As it says fourth annual RG.Org/1st annual Bill Watkins Memorial Run to Patti's ..

Bill turned me on to Patti's many years ago , he would ride up sometimes every month .. He was my riding budd for thirty years and passed away Sept 29 2016 .. We were all sposed to go there the weekend before he passed and everyone here and him had to cancel , so I didn't go either ..

We were sposed to go a few weeks ago and had to cancel because of the weather there , I didn't post here , except to a few peeps who actually had met Bill , because his grand daughter was going and wanted to spread his ashes there , prolly at Garden of the Gods in Illinois ..

But , alas it will be open to anyone here . ..

We normally do it in September anyways , so the new tentative date is Sept 30 .. Will let you know ..

More details to follow ...

I'm in. I was lucky enough to have met Bill at Patti's a few years ago. Incredible man, wish I could have known him longer.

We will leave Bama on Friday , and eat sometime in late afternoon/evening Saturday at Patti's , the ride Saturday will be to where ever , last year we rode to Garden of the Gods in Illinois , and from there to Superman Museum in Metropolis Ill .. And over to Patti's .. we were sposed to cross the Ohio at Cave in Rock Ferry , but a glitch in my gps pre routing , missed the ferry , but took us through some beautiful backroads ... And into a gravel pit for good measure .. From Garden of the Gods , it was one lane farm roads with all the corn you ever care to see for a good hour or more .. Good Clean Fun ..

Bill was using you Scott !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He was interested in two things ..

1) A free room for his stop over to see his beloved Packers , cant say as I blame him there , think Bart Starr and Roll Tide baby

2) Angie's prowess in the kitchen rattling pots and pans

He was a hoot now ..

Not that it matters, but the 30th would be better for me, will make it either way.
