The only thing left undone is John'* cam sensor code, I think. That'll happen soon and she'll be ready for next year (or a return to Woodburn before this season is over).

If I make any spelling mistakes, It'* O'Neils fault because I copied/pasted his response with some mods.

I can't thank everyone enough for the warmth and friendship you have shown me and my familly in making this years WCBF06 the best event I have ever attended.
You guys are a lot of fun and it really felt like familly the whole week we were together.

Billy ***** Great job with everything my man, the beer, printers, coolers, tools, buckets, prizes, and leadership were outstanding.
Your friendship and laughter combined with advise and a helping hand are a real blessing, you are a true friend.

Little John you are one cool guy. Thanks for sharing your home and thank your parents again for warm hospitality. We will bring more fish next year, even your Gramps liked it.

Matt I never thought that I'd meet someone who rivals me for car cleanliness. Good times as always my friend. I think you will surprise everyone next year, that 3.4" pulley was just a teaser.

Sheik O'Neil, Nichole, Jessica and Andrew, My BC buds (pun intended), its been a real pleasure and alot of fun these last 3 years at wcbf. Three Moms were a little much at times but Nichole kept the Moms in check. Jessica has blossomed into a real hottie, watch out for those low cut jeans..
Andrew, is wise beyond his 10 year age and had a lot of friends at his Birthday this year.
Sorry your car was not performing to spec O'Neil, but hopefully you'll get it sorted out and surprise us with you new Toy next year.

StockBob Thanks for all the hard work Bob, your prizes were awesome. Hope you have better luck with daughters than I.
Congrats with the big win and trophy, see you next year top gun

Travis Nice car man and great to finally meet you. Good thing that the slicks didnt work out for you on Saturday, you were a serious threat to my E/T . Thanks for the help removing my slicks. You are very cool for a grandpa eh

Rod, Cindy, Rodney and Hillary Thanks for showing us a good time at the dirt races and saving us some choice seats. I hope we can share some more laughs next year and listen to that sweet 3" exhaust and 6" intake, once again. Victor says Rod was cool for a Noob.

Joel It was great you could make it again this year dude. Thanks for the pit work and the good times around camp. ...and about your t-shirts, **** off eh

Sorry for the late response, here, but WCBF 2006 hangover/recovery and no internet connection this weekend did me in.

I can't begin to describe in words the unbelievable time I had this year. The quality, kind-heartedness, generousity, unselfishness, dedicatedness, and caring of Bonneville owners continues to amaze me (but never surprises me).

Despite all the slicked, custom painted, sub-12 second cars at Woodburn, I think we certainly stole a big part of the show.

I know that even though I was stuck in the staging lane most of the time, Saturday, I could hear the disbelief in the track announcer'* voice, and the amazment in the crowd, when he would talk about how far away Bonneville owners had travelled to come to the event. (It was awesome that he kept saying Travis was from Montana, because you know he was thinking nobody from Minnesota would drive all the way in a Bonneville just to be there).

I couldn't have been more proud of everyone for showing the racing community the BC spirit. This is exactly the type of enthusiasm that Bonneville owners and this club bring to every event.

SPECIAL THANKS to BIll B. and Bill W. for their generous donation of parts for the awards. Especially, to Boost, who, despite having his car packed beyond all possibilities still brought parts for awards and repairs. Most of you now took home awards made from parts of two of the more famous cars on BC. Without their donated parts, awards would have been in jeopardy this year.

Bill W.: BIG BIG THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Some of you know, but many may not, how much of his own personal time and money BIll had devoted to this event. He literally put his life on hold, used much of his own money, and juggled a work, life, and BC schedule to make this event what it was. Without you, WCBF would not be the phenominal event that it is. And thanks for coming up with creative ideas that made this year'* awards possible (It was looking pretty bleak for awhile). I knew you had put in alot of time for the event, but until I spent time working on the awards and running around with you, I had no idea how much. And thanks for the "encouragement" to run my car during bracket racing. I was up in the air, until you "convinced" me to run.

YOU are the "West Coast Host, With The Most"

Bill B.: The best moment of the meet was finally getting to meet you in person. Life is strange, and it is unexplainable, but somehow, seperated by 3000 miles, you truely ARE my best friend. I am so greatful for all you have done for me, not only during the meet, but throughout the rest of the year as well. Durning the entire meet, all you did was help everybody else with their cars and made sure everybody was taken care of. Not once, did you EVER ask for anything for yourself, and I can honestly say, you are the most generous and caring person I know. Thanks for taking the time and initiative to be my crew chief during Saturday'* racing. Without you, the car never would have done the amazing things it did, and the WCBF '06 trophy deserves your name on it as much as anybodys. Loved driving Purpley. Truly one of my favorite Bonnevilles. Hope to see you soon :P

Celin and Kevin:
Although they didn't join us in the campground, I wanted to send a special thanks to Celin and Kevin for making the trip out from Idaho. I am not 100% sure, but I think that one of the main reasons they made the trip this year is because of our "Bonneville" family. Celin and Kevin are wonderful people, and they definitely fit right in with all of the fine qualities that make BC members great. I know that last year, Celin spent alot of time with our group at the track, because she enjoyed our kindness, everybody'* warm personalities, and honest friendships.

I gave Celin her first "trip" down the track as a passenger in my car on Friday night as well as some racing tips on Saturday morning. I think I may have created a track monster, but in the end, it was all in the spirit of sharing and supporting, and watching her turn into a braket racing demon was one of the highlights from my trip.

Greg: You definitely get my vote for most surprising member. Not only did you pull off what was the craziest drive, all by yourself, but in person, you floored me. You are so honest and true, and you wouldn't let anybody do anything for you (I had to sneak around behind your back just to try to help you out and show my appreciation for you making the trip). I feel blessed to have been able to spend some time with you, and hopefully all that driving was worth it for you (I am pretty sure it was).

Hans: What can I say, bud. Thank you for opening up your home and heart to all of us travellers. I had a feeling you were a tremendous individual, but you really showed me hospitality and freindship beyond anything I would have expected. If it wasn't for you, my trip would have not been complete. Caravaning from Albany back to your place was awesome, and it was definitely THE highlight of the trip home. I can't wait to swing by next year and do it all over again.

Joel:
You are one of the few persons I know that doesn't own a Bonneville, but never-the-less, are so much a part of WCBF that it wouldn't be the same without you. Your attitude and energy are contagious and you are truly one of the coolest guys around.

John:
I know there were some challenging moments for you and your car this year, but you perservered and took everything thrown at you. You are truly an amazing individual and your passion for the club and your fellow memebers is unmatched. I enjoyed every minute we spent together (but wished there was more time). Next year, you BETTER drive my car on the track!!!!!!!!!!

Matt *.:
Didn't get to spend a whole lot of time with you, but it obvious, you are an awesome young man (despite being friends with John). You definitely need to bring the caddy next year or get a bonneville so we can get you on the road and on the track. You are definitely BC and WCBF material!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Matt W.:
What can I say. You and Joel were the first ones to pull into the campground last year after me, and for some reason, we hit it off. We picked up this year, right where we left off, and seeing you again made the trip that much more awesome. I can't wait to see you next year, so we can begin all over again.

Mike (sse1990):
Another awesome member. A big thank you for playing WCBF'* official photographer. We had a great time on the drive over from Han'* house to Oregon. The memory of the big SMILE on your face while driving through the twisites and...um....going for a top speed "best", will forever be with me. And through sharing our life experiences, we developed a new, unique, freindship that only you and I can have.

Mike (Greyhare):
I really enjoyed the time we got to spend together. I keep saying this over and over with many members, but you and I defintiely seemed to have a very "special" ? connection. I appreciate the help and guidance you provided, me, and thank you greatly for helping out on Saturday, being apart of our meet, and my time spent in Oregon.

O'Neil, Nichole, and Pfamily:
Once, again, you guys floored me with your generosity. You guys went way beyond the call of duty, letting all of us use your camp-site as home base, and providing awesome food for the whole gang. You always have a special place in my heart, and I can't imagine a WCBF without you guys. Words cannot convey my appreciation for all you do. It was great meeting the kids.

Paul, Laura and family:
Same for your family. Pauls' zaniness and Laura'* smile always make me happy. Despite the car problems, you guys weathered the storm and made the meet. Again, it wouldn't be a WCBF without you. Flags on all the Bonne'* made a big impression everywhere we went (although Paul'* falg dance is something I soon hope to forget), and your son is a wonderful young man.

Rod and family:
Thank you so much for taking the time to join us. You and your family (not surprisingly) fit right in with our nutty bunch. It was hard to see you guys have to leave early, but you guys stayed with us in spirit for the rest of the trip. It would have been so awesome to see your Bonne on the track and for you to be a part of the rest of the meet. Next year, we hope to see you again, even it is under the same circumstances, anytime you and your family could give us would be a treat.

Shadd:
Has to easily be one of the top highlights of this year. I will NEVER, EVER, EVER forget the chance meeting at the oil change place. I am usually somewhat reserved and calm, but my jaw hit the floor and I was absolutley speechless, when I turned around and saw you satnding there. What a great surprise for all of us. You are genuinely one of the nicest, most responsible guys I know. and it wasn't a true WCBF until you showed up.

Tracy:
I am so happy you made the trip. We had so much fun together and I was so glad you were willing to drive "Teally" whenever I asked. I knew that once you were going to be going for sure, I was in for a wonderful trip. We had alot of good times "chatting" and we obviously reinforced that "special" bond that only happens between two deep, caring friends. It was tough to say goodbye, but with luck, we will see each other again, soon. You are always in my thoughts.

Travis:
So quiet and humble, and yet such a great guy. Another surprising member, who showed what Bonneville owners are all about. Your car is truly amazing and I can't thank you enough for making the trip out. You spent several hours working on Boosty'* TB, and helping everybody out, while quitely sitting in the background taking it all in and trying to stay out of the spotlight. (Sounds very similar to another member that I know ). You don't know how badly I was hoping you would get your car into the 13'*, but I am sure it will happen, soon.
