To the editor:

I know this letter is a little late, but I would just like to take time to say thank you to the people of Baker City for making the riders feel so welcome for the Hells Canyon Motorcycle Rally.

My husband, daughter, and son-in-law rode from California and were plesantly suprised at the friendly recption we received. Oh, and what a beautiful place! I will recommend this rally to our friends who love to see new places. Oh, and yes, Bob, they will be happy to leave thir money too.

We had a great time! Thanks again.
