2012 started off with a bang!  We are blessed with three new Grandbabies, so this makes nine total now.
January 2012, we were pleased to be invited to the "Sweetheart Run" in Lake Havasu, by Donna and Tara Dougan of "Desert Lightning Motorcycles". We had a blast and made some new best friends, this event was well organized and had some awesome sponsors and we enjoyed the hospitality of Hampton Inn, this was a fund raiser for the fight against domestic violence.  Can't wait until next year’s event, Donna has promised it to be bigger and better.
February 2012 - Again we found ourselves in Lake Havasu for the "Rock-A-Billy Reunion" Never seen so many Johnny Cash look-a-likes, so many hopped up cars, Rat Rods and Hot Rods, red lipstick everywhere.  The crowds were huge and the music non stop.
March 2012 - "Arizona Bike Week".  We wait for this all year long.  This is one of the first big rallies of the year as we in Arizona enjoy good weather before the rest of the nation.  It was a little hot but we had a good time and heard a lot of good music by "Puddle of Mudd", "REO Speedwagon" and many more, Hog Wraps did real good this year. We enjoy setting up by our friends at "Purple Slice". 2013 AZ. Bike Week will be April 5-14th.
April 2012 - Two weeks later we were off to Yuma (I'd rather go to jail then go to Yuma) for the "Yuma Prison Run" April 20-22nd.  This is held at the Yuma Fairgrounds, very hot for April, great crowds and a good time for everyone, Hog Wraps helped gather donations from the vendors for the raffle to aid the children in the county who were in the burn unit of the hospital and for their care and additional expenses. Feels good to help.

We finished off April at "The Laughlin River Run"  25-28th, we were at the Regency Casino and were treated well by "Mark" owner and "Jackie".  "Uncle Ted Nugent" was there and put on quite a performance, I truly have not seen so many bikes and riders all in one spot at one time in my life, they were coming and going 24/7.  Some of the most beautiful and way out there rides around.

May 2012 - We helped celebrate over at "Skunks Motorsports” on Country Club, JD and Summer invited Hog Wraps to join the event to celebrate their new location and recent expansion.  Free food and drinks, live music, great hospitality was definitely delivered to all who attended, another good event for Hog Wraps.

The very next weekend we found ourselves at Chester's Harley- Davidson for the "Freedom Rally" to show our support for all our Troops.  Very moving event and a great tribute was shown to our troops.  There was a poker run and Chester's grilled up burgers and dogs for everyone and some great raffles prizes given away, Hog Wraps was pleased to make a donation to this event, thank you Skeeter for the invite.

June 2012 - We escaped the heat by going to Williams for the "State HOG Rally 7-9th.  It is always great to see old HOG Friends and make some new ones.  It was windy and not just a little, but what can I say, it's WILLIAMS, it is always windy in Williams.  Met some awesome people from Holland and learn a few new things from them, camped at the KOA and enjoyed out time together.  Hog Wraps did well as usual here too.

To wrap up June we attended by invitation the "White Mountain Rally" the 22-24th in PineTop at The Hondah Casino, this is their 3rd annual event and it coincided with "Mr. Charles Daniels" performing there on Saturday night, he is still a number one performer in my book.  A little windy but is sure beats the 100 plus weather here in the valley, Hog Wraps did well and thanks for the invite to Melissa Amos (Marketing), please invite us back next year.

The end of June finds us at "The Celebration of Freedom" in downtown Mesa, Friday evening and Saturday evening of the 29-30th,
Main Street
will be blocked off to traffic from Country Club to Center, what a party.
