Seeing as it's almost Christmas, the moderators and myself decided to have a look through some of the old good deedsthreads on the forum and dig up some of the more memorable ones. Fundraisers for forum members, dig-outs, prayers and best wishes,and general acts of goodwill and kindness that are worthy of a mention and which showwhat a great bunch of people you are. Everyone involved deserves a pat on the back at the very least for organizing and participating in these. There is no way we can find all of the threads, but are a few of them;

what a wonderful thought. I'd like to take this time to thank all those that sent out thier prayers during my valve job. I have given away a number of parts to those who have needed them because others have done that for me. With the exception of one person everyone was gracious as I was for the gifts. I thank Steve and the moderators for a great site and am looking forward to meeting some of you all in Sept. Thanks Angela:act ion::c ooldevil:

Special thanks to Scotthohio, who rode that '83 Aspencade 17 hours from Pittsburgh, PAto Augusta, GA for nothing but gas/food money and a good story.

This is a great forum full of giving people.

Thanks to all and Merry Christmas from South Carolina!

Should we be posting others that aren't on the list, or should we poke a mod if we remember something?

I would like to echo what Steve said.......There are many more stories that I know of personally that could be added to Steve's links. That is not the point! The point is that because of this forum, people here have become family and will help out anybody in a time of need. The love of Goldwings and Goldwingers is what this forum is truely about!

Merry Christmas to all!

The one that really came to my mind was Scvmike. I know we remembered him in the other thread but it seemed to fit here too.
