It was fun, rewarding, exhilarating and just plain heart warming to have you all take the starting grid for the OpenAir Classic II in Dubuque. Our joyful, waving, rolling topless show thrilled Iowans all over the northeast part of the state. A good number of checkpoint people asked how soon you might be back. From the Potters Mill in Bellevue to the Fish and Cheese Shop in Prairie du Chien, from the Railroaders at Stonefield to the Tasting Bar at Stone Cliff Winery, you made quite an impression.
Of course, we were thrilled by the new places we found, the jaw dropping beauty of the land and the discoveries along the way. If Saturday got a little damp in places, there’s no denying that Friday was one of the most glorious touring days ever. Thank you for your sunny disposition in any weather.
As you get out there to enjoy the wrap-up of this touring year, we hope you’ll continue to share your enthusiasm with your fellow ragtop lovers. Tell them about the OAC, invite them to surf over to the website (www.openairtours.com) and consider becoming members. As we said in Dubuque, we are determined to reward your loyalty by promising that those who sign-up in the Members Only Early Period will be guaranteed a grid position for the OpenAir Classic. By recruiting new members you will be keeping our group fresh and exciting – and you will not be making it harder for you to get into the tour.
Remember to take advantage of the Member’s Page Auto-biographies on our website. All we need is a photo of you and your car and a paragraph or two about yourself and why you enjoy topless touring. Follow the easy instructions at the website and soon your introduction will be up with the rest.
The Second OpenAir Conditioner will be coming up after the turn of the year (watch your email for the announcement of the date and place). We hope you’ll join us for a cool getaway, the announcement of the 2008 OAC destination and be among the first to get your hotel reservation.
So thanks again for another wonderful tour. Keep those tops down and the spirits high. See you soon!
Your topless crew,
Gary and Mae Knowles (Madison, WI) Mike and Donna Peroutka (Green Bay, WI)
