OVERVIEW ::
   

TR 2007 was yet another great year. There was further evolution in terms of transportation. We opted for dual departure points - one from the city and one from the suburbs. This went off without a hitch! We had even more people involved with shopping and finally after 4 years, OLAF was once again able to drive! By mid Saturday, with the arrival of Nutz who had been en route from London, everyone was finally on site!

After an unusually dry TR 06, the rain returned this year in grand fashion. Never the less, nothing was compromised. While some key individuals - young and old were greatly missed, the fine addition of Eric "Mad Dog" Hansen and the welcomed return of Monica's Mom for the first time in a half decade, the group flourished. Perhaps the most well received addition to TR since the initiation of Bocce at TR 2001 Observed, the game of Bags was a major presence and drove great competition among all attendees. There's something to be said for a non-contact sport that can be played while holding a red solo cup!

A bold, risky, but successful move by Jovan & Crazy Dan transitioned the historically 3-4 mile beer float to an uprecidented 8 mile trip! Miraculously, we didn't run out of beer! However, if not for a mid Saturday beer run for an additional 10 cases, we would have likely been completely dry by mid Sunday! Total beer consumption for the weekend - unconfirmed.... but likely upwards of 24 cases!
