Here it is, as posted on the hillbilly grand prix website.
A great friend and a local legend in the off-road racing scene, Mel Gere, had retired. Mel, and his wife Carol, sold Action Cycle LTD at the end of 2001. For over twenty-five years Mel was the number one source for parts and accessories to thousands of racers and casual trail riders. Mel played many other roles as well including race promoter, banker (you guys know what I am talking about), advisor, father, and all-around great friend.
Mel's daughter and son, Carmel and Doug, have arranged a well-deserved Retirement Party for him. They are inviting all of you to be a part of it!
The Party will be held Tuesday, February 26, 2002, 6 - 9 p.m., at Cuzzin's Pizza, Pub and Grill located in the Andreas Plaza (4339 South National) just south of Republic Road. (For you out-of-towners, this is in Springfield.) The cost will be $5.99 for adults and $3.99 for kids. It should be noted that Cuzzin's serves up 26 different drafts of beer.
I encourage to get there early as it will be a great turnout! Bring your best Mel/Carol/Action Cycle stories and old photos if you have 'em. Don't miss this party as it will be a ton of fun!
