      Yeah I don't think anything has officially been setup yet but we have gone there on halloween weekend the last 3 or 4 years. Halloween falls on Wednesday this year so your son won't miss walking around to get candy.

      Thank you sir for keeping the park open for us to enjoy it. :thumbsup:

      We had a great time there, and the ones that showed up and participated in all that was offered have great stories to share with others, and really enjoyed it. I'm betting that the ones that didn't show are kicking themselves for it. :D

      Some of us will be back for our Halloween meet this fall, and some will be back here and there sporadically thru the year, but most of us (and hopefully more) will be back next year for Ford Invasion IV!!

      :salute:

      Halloween is a good time, usually colder so bigger fires!!!!

      I will be packing some spare axle shafts next time, no matter what, even if its a 60 lol

      guys my son (Ransom) and I had a blast. I told him you are planning a Halloween Run and he lit up. We might just be back in October. Take care until next time and I am enjoying the pictures.

      Was great to meet you & your son. He had a good time with all of us. Was fun to watch him & Jake goof it up as much as they did. I couldn't tell who was the bigger kid out of them both :D

      Your BII did an amazing job out there. Very capable little rig, and that D&D Doubler kit really kicks butt :thumbsup:

      Hope to see you out there for the Halloween run, and if you ever feel like getting back down before that, just let me know. I got the brakes fixed on the EX, and it is itching to go back soon :)

      I finally got some software so I can edit photos and video and ad music. I might grab some photos from this thread also tonight and try to make us a nice combined video of the pictures and some movie footage that I have.

      Ah, jealous! Just got the chance to sit down and go through these pics and vids. Wish BethAnn and I could have made it! Maybe next time when we don't have a newborn at home!

      Looks like all of you had a great time (aside from the axle breakage)! We look forward to making out to SMORR again with the EF crew! :thumbsup: :roll:

      thanks! I have been wondering and when I get my magazine in the mail I look thru it hoping. Well looks like I will have to wait a few weeks longer!

      Any chance your going to make Clayton next month? I will be there. Heading to Hot Springs this weekend to attend the Oklahoma Classic Bronco Roundup! Going to show those guys how well the Bronco II works! haha.
