I want to run this by everyone and see if anyone has any thoughts or better ideas for the plaque. It will be from the GS site so we should all have some input and I would really appreciate it as well.

Does anyone have any other thoughts as to what to have put on it? Here's what I was thinking... but not sure about the last 2 lines, or if it should be changed or worded differently. I want it to say something about his GS Twin friends & that he'll be missed, but I want it to sound right. I guess I just want it to be perfect for him.

What do you all think? I really appreciate your help.

Here is what I was thinking to put on the plaque:

In Loving Memory of Rich "Gator" Christie
              8-20-1980 to 7-1-2006
You will always be in our hearts & thoughts.
   Love, Your family & friends at GSTwin

If you think something else would sound better, please let me know.

(Once I know what we want it to say, I will finalize the order and get a date when it will be done. Then I will post up and we can all pick a date, so Rob can tell the fire dept and they can block the road off for us. How does that sound?

Also, Rob needs to know about how many people would be interested in attending this Memorial ride, so please post up if you're interested in attending. Thank you all! 

I moved this thread from here to keep track of it easier ...  http://gstwins.com/gsboard/index.php?topic=28071.0

We will try to pick a date that is suitable for everyone that wants to attend.

I was thinking also, if it rains on the date we decide on... we can either drive cars there, or pick a rain date, whatever works best for everyone. (I am not a huge fan of riding in the rain.)

Ha Ha... well in that case, make sure to bring your rain gear with ya. Will you be meeting up with us at Kmart in Allentown again Wayne?

I don't know a date for sure yet, but it will most likely be a Saturday in August. (I was thinking the 19th depending on when the plaque is done.) That's just tentative for now though until I know for sure when the plaque is going to be done. I will find out this coming week for sure.

I just saw this post  http://gstwins.com/gsboard/index.php?topic=26941.0  (I don't have a clue how... but wouldn't it be cool if we could somehow link these two rides together... by video or somekind of technology so the LA people could be "with us" on the memorial dedication? Just a thought.)

I'm 100% sure that won't work for me.  I've got my rescheduled MSF ERC that day.

Hopefully this will be an annual ride?

I would be honored to attend on th 19th.

LadyJules, I think that is very nice and fitting for the plaque.

Also, what is the route like? Any ideas yet? Just so I know where I should be going and meeting people.

EDIT : There is another post about a ride about when this is. I would like to see them become one if it is possible. I can free up one weekend, and I don't want to pick between the two. Both in the same area.

Im pretty sure the other ride planning died down, and this is the only one. I'd rather see one big ride then two small ones myself. But i cant make it on the 19th, ill be out in Long Island. I keep an eye out to see what date u guys decide on and let u know if im in.

And again...  I won't be able to make it.  It falls on the same day as my already rescheduled MSF ERC date.

Hey all... just wanted to give everyone an update. The plaque won't be ready in time for the 19th of August... so, I had to change the date of the Memorial ride unfortunately.

How does Saturday September 2nd sound? That's the new tentative date and I hope you all can still make the ride!! It would be great to see everyone there. Please post up if you can make it so we can figure out a time and place to meet up at. Thanks everyone!

(If this date's no good for alot of you... because I just realized it's Labor Day weekend... let me know and maybe we can come up with a better date, but it could be better because most people have off for the holiday weekend.)
