Dan Brown pays a visit to Minnesota

Dan Brown and Griff Wigley, 2010Mr. TTC, Dan Brown, was in Minnesota this week and I met up with him for dinner last night.

No, it was not a Mototrial-related visit, but rather with his other hat on as head honcho at Dan Brown and Associates ("Specialists in Deep Foundation Design, Construction, and Testing and Slope Stability Problems").

DBA is "performing geotechnical design of the bridge foundations and settlement mitigation" for the new bridge over the Mississippi River at Hastings, MN. So we talked a lot about deep foundations, with a little webmaster-mototrial stuff on the side.

The last time I had dinner with Dan here in Minnesota?  It was back on May 8, 2005, with Martin Belair, just prior to the USGP WTC in Duluth.

AHRMA Trial was a SUCCESS!

Hey everybody!  We  have gotten some pictures in from the AHRMA Trial we had over the October 1,2 weekend.  Thank you Sadie Thompson for all the great photos!  We sure had a great time seeing everybody…familiar faces and new faces all popped up to come and ride.  The sun was shining and the temperature was just right.  We here at the TTC had a great time, and would like to think everyone else did too!  Enjoy the pictures.
