After some yummy food provided by Oro Valley Bicycle and tasty brews from NAzG, everyone played a weight guessing game. Items included a pumpkin, Specialized road frame and a fork. OVB provided some awesome prizes to those number loving folks that nailed the weights. Some of these peeps were so right on, I had to ask for their Google history! 😉

There was a head stand contest for a free 1 month unlimited yoga membership provided by AZPY. I’m amazed at all the people standing on their heads for this! But no one could beat out Jaime who held it long and steady. Nice moves!

What a super fun night! Everyone enjoyed themselves and it was a blast giving out some very well deserved awards!
