I guess we could say that "WE DA' GROUP" !! (As a spin-off of the popular saying "YO DA' MAN")

Awesome... awesome indeed. So it seems that we were definitely noticed!! I figured so... how could you miss 20+ Audis in a caravan going up (and down, before everyone else) the hill?? Yep, we were the talk of the day, (well, okay, maybe five minutes...), that's for sure!!

Now, AoA... are you listening? To think... you could have had something to do with it...!! Hmmmphhh!!

I vote for an annual event. How can we let such a great success be a one time thing? I envision it being bigger and better every year.... and now that we've done the first, we have a full year to plan the next.

So people, what's the consensus? Should we do it again? Should I take another vote/collect responses?
