It is true; the hurricane has got nothing on us download icloud link images.  For those of you out in the rest of the country, you may or may not be aware of the devastation Ike left on Galveston and the Southern Houston area wo kann ich euro truck simulator 2 kostenlos downloaden vollversion.  The ArtBiker family was lucky and suffered some minor damage and was only without power for about 11 days. With the aid of battery operated radios, we were able to find out a little of what was going on youtube video cannot beed.  When we did get our power back, all the local stations were still running Ike news 24/7.  The city forgot about everything as we focused on FEMA Points of Distribution, Ready to Eat Meals, and $12 bags of ice from the few price-gouging vendors who had the balls to try and take advantage of the situation download facebook video as mp3.  The news took our breath away.  Neighborhoods were gone… yes, literally gone!  Not even rubble left behind, just bare land animation von wikipedia herunterladen!  If you have not seen the pictures, do a search and check out the damage.

Anyway, we were lucky to not have another Katrina disaster and the island of Galveston is struggling to come back to life as quickly as possible fortnite for s6 edge.  And working they are.  In fact, promoters of the Lone Star Rally are dubbing their annual event as the “Official re-opening of Galveston.”  As the Island re-builds the Lone Star Crew is doing what they can for the community that has embraced them since their first rally in 2004 Download computer games for children.  The Rally is set for the weekend of October 30th – November 2nd and there are special plans to help bring folks in and do their part to bolster the economy wolf quest kostenlos herunterladen.  The efforts include:

A Charity Casino and Auction benefiting Ronald McDonald House.

Vendors will hold Trick or Treat for the Galveston kids from 6pm-9pm on Friday.

Over 20 donation stations around the venues will be set up.

A telethon will be held inside the Convention Center on Saturday to raise money.

If given enough space on the Seawall, LSR will provide free space to Galveston merchants who have product to sell but no place to sell it.


This is all fine and good, and we applaud the LSR Team for their efforts, but what is the rally going to offer all those bikers they are hoping to attract?  Well, in past years, this rally has drawn nearly 500,000 riders to the island of Galveston.  This year there will be a special concert by the Beach Boys as well as three stages around town featuring 60 bands.  Demo fleets, deep sea fishing and dolphin tours, AMA tours and poker runs, a Halloween Costume Biker Parade and the World’s largest Leather and Lace Ball, ghost ship tours, the Lone Star Lady Riders’ Conference, as well as your usual bikes, babes, beer, and other standard rally fare.

The ArtBiker family will be there in force, taking pictures, holding wedding ceremonies, passing out free ArtBiker cards and gear, and kicking back with a cold one while watching the world go by.  If you make it, please come on up and say hello, we would love to meet with you.


Love, Respect, and Ride Safe,
