    First Annual Memorial Ride for the Coast

    <img align="left" src="http://www.riderinfo.com/news_images/earl-ackerman.jpg" border="0" style="margin-right:6px" alt="Earl T. Ackerman Photo" />The Lake County Motorcyclists are proud to announce the First Annual Run for the Coast June 2, 2007 in honor of their recently departed friend and brother Earl Ackerman who was taken away in an accident with a cage.

    The run will begin at the Roadside Inn on S.R. 44 just east of Wildwood and just west of Leesburg, Florida, at 9:00am. The bikes will pull out at 10:00am.

    The memorial ride will proceed to the Crackers Bar and Grill at 502 NW 6th Street, in Crystal River for lunch.

    After run there will be a benefit party for Carla Stephens, who was the passenger on Earl’s scooter when the accident happened, at gumbo’s in Leesburg beginning at 4:00pm. There will be musical entertainment provided by local band Bad Apple and One More Time direct from Panama City.

    After the run food for the crowd will prepared by Gumbo on his world famous cooker.

    The group will have raffles, a 50/50 drawing, fun, food, entertainment, and most of all, friendship.

    Help them make this first annual run for Earl something he would be proud of. Come out and join them, Saturday, June 2, 2007.

    Its going to rain!!!!

    Will this be postponed because of rain?
    With a 70% chance, you'll have a 100% chance no one will show up.

    Just so folks know, they did ride and are on the coast now. It looks like they may have a dry ride home. As long as they are safe, that's good enough, wet won't hurt them.

    The party went great. They had a really good crowd and the two bands really did a great show.

    We have the pictures too. We'll get um posted soon. There's even a video of hambone playing the spoons and Rick and Gumbo doing some, um er, dance.
