Dennis Kirk Sled Build Promotion
« on: September 19, 2018, 07:22:15 AM »
The other day I received an e-mail from Dennis Kirk on their Sled Build promotion. 

I went ahead and submitted photos of our TOC tribute sled.  If you have a chance please visit the site and add your vote.  Of course a vote for our TOC would be appreciated.

It was a fun project.

Also, if anyone wants to leave a comment, the more comments, the better chance we have to win :-)

I appreciate all the votes.  For the moment the Green Kawasaki is in the lead.  But there are others coming up fast.  So, if anyone has not voted yet, all votes greatly appreciated.

It is pretty exciting to see the vote total increasing.  There is still a long time till February so I don't know how this will end up.  But for the moment I am humbled and gratified that the sled has received so many votes.

Good evening.  For the moment it  looks like the green Kawasaki is still the overall vote leader, but there is an Arctic Cat sneaking up on us.  This is a pretty fun contest and it is interesting to see the diversity of the sleds that have been posted - and how many types I have either owned or ridden over the years.  Thank you again for all the votes and encouraging comments.

Good afternoon.  I almost can't believe it, but thanks to you guys and gals, the green sled is still the vote leader.  This is really exciting for me and I do, very much appreciate everyone's support.  It is particularly amazing to me as there are so many sleds entered, and so much amazing work is represented by the various sleds.  I am impressed by most of the entries.

If anyone has not had a chance to vote or comment, I will accept all the votes and comments that I can get.  https://www.sledbuild.com/1980-kawasaki-invader/   

Thank you.

Tomorrow is Ground Hog Day.  And, while I have no idea whether there will be 4 more weeks or 6 more weeks of winter, I do know that there are now only 4 more weeks in this  contest.  I am very grateful for all  of the voting support.  Thank you all.

Wow!  Only three weeks to go in the contest and thanks to everyone here the green sled is still the overall voting leader!  This is amazing.  I am not surprised that the sled is in the lead, after all it is a Kawasaki, I am more surprised that it is my entry.  Every now and then I have to pinch myself.

I will say again, thank you for voting for this entry.  Thanks also for the encouragement offered thorough this site over the years.  I know I have benefitted tremendously from the suggestions and sage advice from others who have been there.

Now if we can just get some snow!
