We got up early this morning and went to Cracker Barrel for breakfast Candy had her normal of biscuit and Gravy.  I had eggs sausage patties with grits and hash browns.    Candy and I drove through town and stopped and picked up a case of water.  After driving the wrong direction we found Wing Ding.  We followed a bunch of people and met up with Chris and Sally (DD for Michigan).  They told us to come to the registration booth after opening ceremonial.  We got to set on the stage floor and got to stand with the other chapters in the country.

We went and helped out until noon at registration building, then off to the vendors.  I picked up some plastic guards for the headlights on the bike, arm rest for Candy and new grips for me.  Went to the parking lot to install the guards, they went well.  Started on the grips and found out that I didn't have a allen wrench small enough.  We back inside to get one, but I had to borrow one from one of the vendors.  On the way out we meet up with Mike and Nancy.  They we having a cup holder installed. Mike came out and helped with the install of the grips. We then installed the arm rest for Candy.  All went well until I dropped the washer.  Looked all over but didn't find it finished the install with out it.  Candy and I went out latter to leave and found it so I got the tools back out and installed the washer.  We meet Julian and Mary Jo for supper and went back to the hotel.  We will be leaving in the morning.
