Just as an update regarding myself and Triumphs In Taos 2016... I will not be involved in organizing/participating in the event this year. I have been in communication with Sean/Cuchulainn about his plans regarding TnT this year and I am hopeful he will have his decision over the weekend.

In answer to this, my wife Sara and I have also decided that we are going to take a break from organizing/participating in Triumphs in Taos this year.

I reached out to Arthur last Monday to see if he would have an interest in organizing the event, but I have not heard back yet on his decision.

In the meantime, Arthur runs a Facebook Group for Triumphs in Taos. I would keep an eye on that for any additional news.

Hey Sean or Bob. My friend Andy Faust who has come with me to TNT the last 3 years said he would be interested in taking over the event. He was the guy riding the KTM 990. He is picking up a Triumph scrambler as I type this message. So now he's official (haha). He also lives in Albuquerque which is close. If your interested pm me and I'll send you his phone number and e-mail address.

Scott,

Hi. Arthur still hasn't responded back to me, so I have NO idea what his status is.

Bob has been in contact with Manny (yellow Thruxton from Colorado) and he seemed to be willing to pick up the ball to keep it going. I didn't get the impression he was all that keen on it with all his other obligations, but didn't want to see it pass either.

Maybe it would be worth PM'ing Manny (Chewbacca on here) and seeing if he would rather just offer assistance to Andy.

Of course I remember Andy, we had the KTM's at a Triumph Rally hahaha

Hey Scott... Thank you for the offer and once I get an update from Manny this week I will get in touch with you regarding Andy possibly heading up TnT this year. Sean and I are a bit in the dark at this point as Arthur was all fired up to take it over this year but he has fallen off the grid. Sean was in contact with him last week and he said he would give us an answer this past weekend. Sean has attempted to contact him but he is no longer responding. As Sean mentioned, Arthur and Manny have been in touch but I don't know what that's about. When I contacted Manny he seemed a bit overwhelmed with the thought of running TnT this year. I did speak with Cheryl at the Kachina and the dates are still being held for TnT. Cheryl would just like to know who will be coordinating the event this year. I told her I would get back with her once I had the answer.

It's unfortunate I can't commit to TnT this year but circumstances for me will not permit this. We thought we had this resolved as I mentioned with Arthur heading it up but evidently that isn't the case.

Thanks again Scott and I will be in touch.

Bob

Hey Scott,

Sean and I have come to a mutual agreement in accepting Andy's offer taking over TnT this year. We both agree Andy will do a nice job and Sean and I will make ourselves available to answer any questions Andy might have.

Given how things have gone over the last 2 weeks with the lack of follow up and communication that I mentioned in my previous post, we would like to get things rolling as soon as possible. I will PM you my contact information and if you would forward it to Andy that would be great.

Thank you again Scott for letting us know about Andy's willingness to help out this year.

Bob

I just spoke with Andy and he is excited and enthusiastic about organizing Triumphs In Taos 2016. I believe Andy will do a great job with this years event. He should be posting up an announcement within the week I would think so stay tuned to this thread.
