Thank you for guiding your group safely through the UP sometimes in white out conditions @shooterAMG @Yukon Joe

Chase drivers-
Heather, Donk, Tim/Brad, Big Red, Ted, Scott- You guys have one of the hardest jobs. Rarely does a vehicle become inoperative at the front.

Kevin, Zack, Mike, Sam- Thank you for again swapping an IWE. Also thank you for the Squirrel Racing Hat! @BigBlueBalls

All of the Sponsors from little single owner shops to larger companies thank you very much for making the Snoball the Premier Winter Raptor Event.

If I forgot or missed you I am truly sorry.

Last but not least the State of Michigan and the Department of Natural Resources. Thank you for taking the time to talk and all of your work to make this event great.

Thank you everyone for a great SnoBall!

Jason

As always SnoBall was awesome. Even with the record number of people things went smooth.

Just next year lets hope a wedding does not snag the room from us for registration, it was hot in the hallway. lol

You're welcome.... all in a days work! Lol....

I'd like to say thank you to @RaptorWifey for watching the twinkies and letting me come. I missed her this year.

Thank you to @Rico'14 for being my copilot. You brought gear we needed,filled the truck with gas at times and always helped get Night Raptor extracted when needed.

Delta group - thank for being a great group. You guys are easy to lead.
Thanks to @upscrazy8 for kicking the Bison Cooler back into the raffle so I could win it.


@bigred1097 - thanks for being a well stocked chase truck. Your wealth of knowledge was great over the weekend.

Thank you vendors. You guys donated some really awesome products.

Lastly, thank you @Kanakry, @WorldTour and Heather. You put on one hell of an event.

I wanted to make sure to thank some folks as well:

To all of the participants, thanks for helping make SnoBall IV as memorable as the first. Is it all of you and your unique personalities that make this more than just an offroading trip.

To Mother Nature. thank you again for reminding us all weíre not in charge. We canít control you and if we try, you smack us down. Your cold was bearable, but your sheer volume of snow pushed even the most capable of trucks back on our way to MQT. Thank you for creating such an amazing place for us to 4 wheel.

To all the sponsors, thank you for your donations to help raise money for a great charity. We all love stuff, but we love helping out our Vets that need help even more.

Thank you to my Chicago crew. We always have fun together, help each other out, trade knowledge and jabs. You are the best group of folks I could have hoped for.

A big thanks to all the people I communicate with/stalk on FRF/Facebook and donít get to see often. It was great seeing you, if even for a handshake, a hug or a sensual ass grab.

A gigantic thank you to Charlie Group. You guys did frickiní amazing. You put up with extractions, sitting behind Alpha, a flat tire, and my potty mouth and you took it all in stride. I am proud to say I lead the best group of people through SnoBall 2016, hands down.
Brian, despite your following distance, I really do appreciate you as my #2. You're a voice of reason when we get into tough terrain and I feel better knowing you're back there
Ty, thanks again for coming back to Charlie for a second year in a row. Glad to know I must be doing something right!
Ann Lynch, glad you made it back again and kept it out of the trees!
Jared, kudos to you for forcing a wardrobe change on Lauren!
WG, thanks for being an awesome addition to the team. Your knowledge and experience were a wonderful addition to the group. And without fail you have the best radio in all the UP. When I couldn't hear a HT or Chase, you always came through loud and clear. Thanks so much for all your help.
Mad props to the who TMX crew, Sam, Vanessa, Jason, Brad and Lee. You had one hell of a drive and you put up with conditions quite a bit colder than you're used to. Kudos to whoever fixed the vacuum issue we had and came up with that creative recovery technique.
Bob, thanks for being the only one smart enough to bring a sled!
JW, thanks for all your comment and pokes at Honey Bunny! It was great having you in the group again.
Honey Bunny, what can I say. You have a pink Raptor with giant ears. You win, period!
Carl and Kim, thanks for coming back doing it all over again. I love you guys and I'm so glad we had a better year at Kim's corner.
Tim, thanks so much for running Chase the 1st day. Sorry you got sidelined from being under the weather. This did however allow Brad and Shauna to step up and take over the role. I can't thank you guys enough for your support and assistance. You two are a real class act and I'm sorry I didn't glowstick more than just one fig netwon!

I think my wife deserves a HUGE thank you! Thanks for supporting this thing I do, thanks for agreeing to come along, to support all the money Iíve thrown at this and for peeing outside, repeatedly. This SnoBall was awesome Ďcause I got to share it with my best friend.

And saving the best for last, a huge, triumphant, mega, massive thank you to Mark, Jason and Heather. Without your massive efforts, long hours, countless emails and weeks (months) of planning, this could not have happened. Know that your efforts are greatly appreciated. I can honestly say I am honored and privileged to have been asked to lead a group of your customers.

Thanks Todd I had a great time and everyone in Charlie was great! This group worked well together and the radio chatter was really entertaining. I am already planing next year and hope to run with youall again. W.G.

A big thank you goes out to @FarFromStock for being an awesome co-driver. Handling everything so I wouldn't have to and being leveled headed enough with just the right sense of humor to perfectly offset my own silliness, you helped make it a truly memorable trip!
@Yukon Joe and @bigred1097, you guys are a couple of the most prepared and knowledgable people I know.

All the rest of Delta, you were friendly, entertaining, helpful and we all got along awesome!
@Kanakry @WorldTour and Heather, once again you put together an epic event that is still my favorite.

All the vendors, the level of participation and donatio s for the raffle were outstanding!!!

All the participants. Without you there would. Be no event.
