Friends,

 

          Thank you all for your support of the Mountain Bike Pow Wow. Hearing the stories of your journeys across the Santa Ana's is an inspiration to us all. The Great Spirit spoke to you in the wind much the way he does in life, sometimes making your journey easy, other times hard. But rest assured he will never allow you to experience something that you cannot, through spirit and determination, rise above.

          It is our hope that you were reconnected to the land in which we feel privileged to ride upon. It is our goal to open your eyes to that which cannot be seen but only felt; the love of the Great Spirit of which the beauty of the forest testifies. If the Warrior's Society accomplished this then the Forest will be in good hands.

          The Warrior's Society would like to thank the following individuals and organizations that helped to make the Pow Wow possible: The U.S. Forest Service and District Ranger Clem "Friend of the Native Peoples" La Grossa, Rangers Sue "Dodges Many Arrows" Zahn and Lee "OK's Event" DiGregorio, Chris "Protects the Warrior's" Pena and the Orange County Search and Rescue Team, who gave us the peace of mind knowing the riders would be taken care of if they got into trouble, Warrior's Society member Ron "Leads Many Warrior's" Cooke for being our Communications Director and teaching us how to do an event right, Mac Lopez for his guidance and sharing his music with us (thank you so much for the gift of the flute, we are blessed our Shoshone Brother), Becky Vargas for being camp boss and making sure you're taken care of once you got back, Dave "Hears a Lion" Goldstein for calming the Event Director down, fellow Club members Jesse "Fights the Oak" Vargas who worked from Thursday through Saturday non-stop, Bob "Wise Hawk" Haislett, Nathan "Little Hawk" Heronen, Pat "Knows No Fear" Killiam, Terry "Cries Blood" Hamlyn, Randy "Knows All the Trails" Vogel, Genny "Fighting Dove" Devries, Tim "Say's Very Little" Salter, Pete "Shares the Vision" Allen, Lon "Keeps His Scalp" Hanson and wife Donna "Walks Big Dogs", Joe "Looks for Air" Lopez, Bruce "Sees the Land" Gray, Sue "Medicine Woman" Gray, Bob "Three Leaf" Hefner, Bob "Keeps Many Trails" Loeffler  and his perspective on things, Shidan "Seeks a Vision" Towfiq, Jim "Rests Many Times" Meyer, Jim "Hunts for Food" Simescu, Keith "Keeps His Word" Eckstein, Mark "Hears Many Voices" Ayers, Will "Keeps Many Tepees" Boyd, Russ Robinson, John McKenzie, Mike Bergevin, Colleen Rashford, Max Adams, Jason Mc Million, Greg Cope, Bobby, Keirsten, Sarah and Tanya Vargas, Brandon, Pam Woodson for Drawing the Event T-shirt design, Dee and Gena Muro, Dave Strege for the positive coverage of mountain bikers in the Orange County Register, Martin Beck for the positive coverage of mountain bikers in the Los Angeles Times, John Colcough, County Rangers Cliff Caywood and Don Pifper, County Supervisor Todd Spitzer for his support of mountain bikers and for the Sheriff escort, Clarice Tuttle for keeping Art Tuttle up late Friday night, and Art Tuttle for co-operating with the event after realizing what was going on Saturday morning.
