BMR / Team Harrison

There will be a lot of post-rally details thrown out in the next days …but I didn’t want to wait on this.

Those of you at the banquet know that the Seven-Eleven riders did a stellar job raising money for Team Harrison.  But we had some unexpected donations from those of you at the banquet.   Awesome job!! and you know who you are!!   Again the money donated here is  on top of the donations of Seven-Eleven Riders.   

Money donated at the banquet for team Harrison $711.69. This was unexpected and on top of what the Seven-Eleven Riders previously donated. In addition to cash, Matt Watkins threw in a bottle of nice scotch for Team Harrison, and the BMR threw in two BMR tool bags and two "Finisher" shirts.

Also:  You may not have seen the great real-time submissions that our VIP participants “Team Harrison” sent in during their Tour de Cure ride.  Yes they were submitting real-time pictures just as you were!

Do you want to see the “finish” pictures of the Seven-Eleven?  Yes, you certainly do.  Many will recognize G. Swetland supervising the finish.  Finger in the nostril signifies riders who completed this one-time-only opportunity and earned the certificate.  Two riders did not make it, one time barred, one mechanical. (bmw BTW)  GO HERE TO VIEW PICS OF FINISHERS OF THE Seven-Eleven

Hard to imagine so many finished after seeing the fun in Utard the night before  HERE don’t miss this enlarged picture of the riders who stayed up very late and note the Alabama couple front and center HERE

Finally, Hundreds of thousands of miles by BMR riders over the course of this rally (details coming soon).   Can’t help but to have a few “Fuzz Encounters”  ……and our VIP’s out in Alabama had a Fuzz Encounter too, nice job guyz, yours was a bit more positive than the others!!   Seem ‘em HERE 

We’ve got a lot of BMR stats, info and stories coming soon, -but we wanted to share the information on The Harrison boys as we’re so proud of our alliance with Team Harrison!! Great job John Morgan and Matthew ….from your fellow riders in the Big Money Rally!

BMR attacked ~ Bounty Forthcoming

Only one more week to go: The BMR has been maliciously attacked and we’re asking for your help.

We knew that we might come under attack. We assumed a pissed-off district attorneys or geeks hacking at the website would be our most likely threat.

**Never did we anticipate a calculated and malicious attack from a fellow rider.

Yesterday, BMR’s North American Headquarters received an anonymous delivery. It contained electronic images and documentation of 295 (not a typo) instances of disparaging, and mean-spirited attacks on the BMR. We guestimate he/she has traveled over 13,000miles to systematiclally attack the BMR.

We are not taking this sitting down. Rather, we are up-on-the-pegs in pesuit of justice/retribution.

Please help us identify this person. Please review these pictures, we have provided all 295 attacks so that you can see the extent of malicious intent.

My Town Pride – Trinidad, CO

This is Fort Wootton. It is a giant war memorial that takes up about half a city block. It was once described as the “the most complete war memorial in the nation.” Nine veterans’ groups teamed up with the WPA to have it built in 1936-7. It has an auditorium and meeting spaces inside.

It is currently used to house the Las Animas County Department of Human Services. There are hopes that the building will be turned over to the local Veterans Committee once DHS moves into the refurbished “Old Jail” across the street. I am not holding my breath. Learn more at
