Charlie Davis (El Nomad) and his cousin Velardi Gonzales had their birthday party at the Pour House Bar and Grill in Star Valley, Arizona. Outside, a cold rain was falling but inside old friend met and new friends were made.

Mr. Mayagi, Steff Brooks, rode from Washington State as did last years Stampede winner Chris Schreiber. Brandon Fletcher who finished 9th last year, Skip Lindenstruth who rode in last years Stampede, Bob Marshal who finished Stampede 7 and F-Bomb who has ridden in most of the Stampedes were there. I recognized a Vulcan 500, that I think belongs to Willie Jack from Stampede 8 and is called the White Buffalo and I know there are other names I should have remembered.
There was a great band, everyone had a great time and before anyone left we got together for a group photo.
The Pour House Bar and Grill was unfinished last year but Charlie and Valardi were able to hold the party there anyway. This year the interior was complete and it was really nice. Old wood taken from an old rail car is used throughout the bar. It is a really nice place and we had breakfast there in the morning. If you happen to be in the Payson-Star Valley of Arizona stop in.
