The Cruiser rallies/gettogethers this year in Canberra, Australia and the Dragon showed us how important it is for our community to meet face to face (or handlebar to handlebar) with other members.
Huge kudos go to the members who organized those rallies, starting with Robin001 and PhilCole organizing the "The Inaugural CC River Run" in Mildura.
Phil pulled it off again in 2011 with the "Not a CCC rally in Mt. Gambier".
The CCC Dragon Ride in May of this year turned out to be a huge success and the it has become the #1 Discussion on the site! Big thanks to moreland4, skeeter229 and GunnerCWO3 for organizing the ride.
Also, thanks to Surfwer and his son surfdwr for organizing the BBQ at Americade for the past 3 years and this year as well.
Finally, Copperguy and ocanada are recognized for the Canadian ride and the "Beaver Lick Run".
PhilCole did a great definition of what it should take to earn a "Rally Organizer" badge:
... it has to be at least an over nighter and has to be open to and promoted to all CCC participants. Not a Saturday afternoon ride with mates or even a overnighter with one or two mates. It needs to take some organising and some effort. It needs to attempt to get new people who had not met before, together on a weekend or similar.
Please keep discussing it here.
