In lieu of filling up the pictures thread....
It was an extreme pleasure meeting everyone and putting faces with screen names for a change![:D]
I do need to mention one thing though.
Actually, the funniest thing, was when that '05 fOCUS drove by us in the parking lot.
All members of the party exclaiming at once....
"Ahhhhhh! It looks like a Taurus from the front!"
"Ooooooh, the interior is so drab."
"It looks like a Honda!"
"Good God, why did they "F" it up!"
"What happened to the funk that the fOCUS is known for??!!"
Oh man, my wife and I were cracking up!
If only that owner had heard all of us.
Anyway, rock on, and keep the pics coming.
Looking forward to another G2G next year.
Special thanks to dingaling for showing us around.[thumb]

F(fociii)ugly - fugly o5.
I second the thanks, Dingaling.
I would probably exchange addresses with you for the 35's. We have a year to post all are pics that are digi. Glad to see you guys made it back. Any ways, now I'm painting my tail lights and side markers on the front bumper. black to match the car. This winter I'm putting the sway bars on and the strut tower braces on. Wow after this little drive I got back to my home town and drove like I did on Iron Mt., Man it sucks being home there is no where to drive. Shady does it again, I'm the most difficult person to get a picture of aren't I.
<<<<<<<<What the heck is this? Am I for sale or some thing, When did they decide to do this.

Thanks, I just wish we had more people show up. That way if we broke into afew small groups then everybody could go to all the places that they wanted to. I kinda wish that they whole trip to Deadwood would have turned out better. I had a good time, but its too bad others did not get to go. I guess I should have just gone up to Skyline with some of you. I dont know if it woulda been cheaper or not though. Deadwood cost me about $100 after ticket, gas, beer, and the dollar I lost gambling.

My thought would be that next year, any non-focus stuff could be delt with on Friday: Deadwood, go-karts, sight seeing, etc... If you want to do that, show up early on Friday so we can have Saturday and Sunday fully devoted to doing Focus things as a group.
I think we could easily hit Skyline, Rushmore, Iron Mt. and Crazyhorse in one day. Only stops needed to make would be for gas, food, and group photos at Rushmore and Crazyhorse. Oh yeah, there was also mention of Needles highway... we could probably do that in the same day too then run down Skyline a few more times that night.
I'm thinking that would be for Saturday. Sunday we could head off to the drag strip in Deadwood and each take a few runs and do an autocross event back in Rapid.

Sounds like a good plan, but the drag strip is in Sturgis, and autocross is always held on Saturdays here.

MMMMM I checked the schedule and the autocrosses are held on Sundays as they always have been the next one being the 29th.
