Just got a call from Pete Fisher of Powroll and he said Tom Street mentioned wanting to do something for Powroll’s 50th Anniversary.
I’m sure some of you know Tom puts on a pretty big shindig at his place every year. Festivities include slot car racing, good food, and blowing stuff up. He and Pete agreed it would be the perfect venue to get Powroll folks together again.
So anyone who worked for the big 4-stroke performance icon over the years is welcome to join the festivities
When: July 26th, 10am – ??
Where: Tom Street’s House,
64759 Old Bend Redmond Hwy
Bend, OR 97701-8438

It’s deer migration season here in the high desert, which means tons of large and generally stupid four-legged roadblocks will be greeting you as you leave Hwy. 97 and head in to the ranch.
Ironically, you won’t have to worry about cows on the Ranch.
Of course they are usually on the roads during the times of day when visibility sucks – early morning and early evening.
Also keep an eye out for our mouflon sheep (called “shoats” by the locals because they look like a cross between a sheep and a goat). They are usually smart enough to stay off the roads, but they’re a bit unusual and fun to spot.
The RV Park down at the Ranch is offering special prices for the event – to get these prices be sure to say you’re with the event when making a reservation.

Special Event Prices:
Full Hook-up $30+tax
Dump and water fill-ups are free!
An 11-mile stretch of US Hwy 97 between Bend and Redmond is being repaved, and workers will be on the job the week of the event. Paving will be done at night from 7pm to 7am Monday-Friday, and 8pm to 7am on Sunday.
Traffic will be limited to one lane in each direction during paving operations, although delays will most likely be minimal.
Those of you traveling up from the southern regions will probably be the most affected since many of you will arrive on Friday evening. Although alternate routes are available, 97 will most likely still be the easiest and quickest route even with one lane closed.
There Can Be Only One!
Anyone that is interested in competing for the Highlander award this year needs to contact Pete Fisher at 541-388-2135 (after 6pm) to get your name on the list. Previous year’s winners will be there to defend their right to be The Only One, it’s up to you to dethrone them (without the messiness of cutting their heads off).
If you’re not familiar with the Highlander competition, this is the forth annual and here’s the info from the inaugural event:
In honor of the 100th Anniversary of the Scottish 6-Days, the Steel Stampede will be hosting an epic fight encompassing the fine sports of Trials and that other Scottish invention involving a ball, a stick, and a hole.
In addition to the regular trials sections, Highlander participants will attempt to complete a Special Trials section that will emulate something from the Scottish 6 Days, and 9 holes of golf at the Crooked River Ranch course (see special rates in Participant Info).
The awesome Highlander sword trophy will be presented to the winner.
No Handicaps, No BS, No 2nd Place – Just straight up competition – lowest combined score wins.
So get your balls and clubs together and join in!
