Photos of the Challenge Cup at the Hilton

These photos are from the 2011 Baker to Vegas, 27th Annual Challenge Cup Relay festivities at the Hilton. The afternoon started off with Unofficial Results being posted and the adjustment of point calculations beginning. There were penalty assessments for various infractions, each being assigned a time deduction value. The scene outside reminded me of seeing a bunch of students gathered around the bulletin board to find their test scores.

Various groups had booths raising funds and advertising. There were a couple celebrity sightings, ala Forrest Griffin, who was kind enough to pose for photos with fans. There was an awards ceremony but I left before it got started since they seemed to be having a problem getting people seated. I figured the best way to get that to happen would be if I left, so it probably started soon after that.

Photos from the 27th Annual Challenge Cup Relay

This weekend was the 27th Annual Challenge Cup, Baker to Vegas Relay. Law enforcement personnel from around the world take part in this event which is a 120 mile run from Baker, CA to Pahrump, NV and then on to Las Vegas. From what I have seen and been told, there are about 6,000 runners involved. I do not know if you have ever driven this route, but while being a pretty drive, I can not imagine running for fun through this part of the desert. sponsored the Riverside Sheriff’s Correctional Unit team. It was their first time as a team, although several members have made the run several times in the past. Like one person told me, the run sucks, but once it is over that satisfaction is great. I would like to thank Stacey at Milner Signs for not only doing a great job at a great price, but the turn around time (overnight!!) was phenomenal.

The Road To Sturgis

Torrance, CA to Grand Junction, CO

2010 was the 70th Annual Black Hills Rally & Races in Sturgis, S.D. The last time I went was in 2006 and I swore I would never return due to the amount of people that were now attending. If they all came on motorcycles instead of dragging them along on trailers it would not be so bad, but Sturgis just was not built for one million people. Since I got a new bike, and the price of gas went up, I figured it would cut down on the number of RV’s and trailers, so I gave it another shot. Tanya drove out from Indiana to meet me, and we did not get there until Thursday, so any crowds had thinned out significantly.

I did not take many photos the first couple of days as I needed to get some miles in so I could arrive in time to meet Tanya. This gallery consists of pictures taken in Las Vegas and Mesquite, NV as well as along I-70 in Utah. I spent my second evening in Grand Junction, CO.
