-WSSA Rendezvous & Joseph, Oregon Trip.  Linda reported that we had a successful fun filled time. There was a great turn out for the WSSA Rendezvous in Walla Walla.  From Walla Walla a number of people drove to Joseph, Oregon.  A total of 16 members met at the Beautiful Eagle Crest Lodge on Tuesday 2/21/12. The condo was 3 stories and we pretty much had the place to ourselves. We rode for another 4 days straight.  Linda arranged for maps and some locals w/ modified turbo sleds to take us on a great boondocking ride. Derrick & Fred led another partial adventurous ride. We had 3 days of Sunshine beautiful snow & even ran across the “Throttle Chix” Annual Halfway ride. We got to talk with Emilie Moreshead from Octane production, Brandy Floyd’s friend, and she told us that a total of 42 riders showed up for that event.  Lots of pictures on the CDS website.
