sure, just make sure to sign the check, and triple the amount, and put a note on it "keep him over there"... of course, anything less than a $100 pledge ain't gonna cut it tho...  soooo, like increase your chance eh, end me some Horton's doughnuts, and some back bacon, eh, and I'll stay longer...

and don't send me any of that Poutine...  it clogs my artheriteries up,,, I had to use draino last time I ate it...




wait, you can't vote... so I'm safe, still ... send back-bacon and donuts... I'm not allowed in Canada until 2021.. :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :thumbs: :thumbs: :thumbs: :chugbeer:


peace,  ;)

On a serious note;
always backed this program, voted and contributed to send Rick, your site master, over also.. I'm sure he could tell you what the experience of a lifetime it may be/
He always calls me names, and stirs the pot, but I hope (ieeeeee, I do hope), it i all just done in fun...stirring the pot makes for interesting reading.... so I was told.

At a point a few year ago; during some "transitions" OtP became a COG driven function... which it never "was" prior, it was driven, and funded completely by "People" with a like mindset, desiring to share this back and forth with Europe and USA
It is NOW, once again, an individually run and functioning program, from us that have an unyielding devotion to the bike, and those we share it with...

I first started my COG thing on this site, and NEVER strayed from my allegiance, and support for it since joining, always willing to share and educate, and most of all increase the Concours ownership experience... a simple credo, but difficult to do for this long...especially when people come, glean knowledge, and depart, many times never saying thank you or "man, that worked great.."

I've been involved with this program for 17 years, and always wanted to go...
I was nominated in 2015, but as I got laid off, had to remove myself from the nominees..
because even tho largely funded by donations, there is a pretty large financial obligation by a traveler to fund on his/her own..
I have been once again nominated, and have a very good chance at winning, but it will take votes and support.
This truly is a trip of a lifetime, and NO OTHER club in the world, does this.. it's a great honor to even be nominated, and an unbelievable one to actually be voted the "Traveler"....

Read about this event here on Facebook, and also our website link.
how to vote, how to donate ...

USA
COG facebook site https://www.facebook.com/groups/ConcoursOwnersGroup/

here as well as at;

OTP facebook site https://www.facebook.com/groups/401849443334008/

and Europe;

GCE Facebook site https://www.facebook.com/groups/162195043828558/


to vote, as a non (COG) member it's a $15 donation to "OTP", and you can vote for me, Rich Riczinger (known as "Man of Blues COG# 5977), on the links provided for the donation, and casting a vote...

in order to vote, a donation must be sent, via PayPal...

donate here;

Americans, please send your donations via Paypal to: OTP.USA@cox.net,
Europeans, please use Paypal to: GTR1000@t-online.de

when making the donation, make sure to note it as a "gift" when the donation is sent. This incurs no extra charge, that PayPal uses.
Also, in the Notes section, please include "to vote for Rich / Man Of Blues/OTP nominee"

(current COG members (paid members) can simply vote...nut it would be nice to see donation..)

then, a vote can be made upon receipt of the donation, by sending a direct e-mail to the program, via the same e-mail
here:

Voting opens on Feb 14th. Send your votes to OTP.USA@cox.net. Include your name and COG # (that part is only applied to members of COG, so as a non member making a pledge, it does not apply, just "who" you cast your vote FOR does). Euro votes will be cleared by Bernd (in Germany). Donations as always can also be sent to the noted email addy's via paypal. Support this program. There is nothing like it! In the world!

thank you for your time reading this, and thank you in advance if you pledge and vote for me.
