Talking Thank You.....

Just got back from ZookiMelt 2013 and I have to say it was a HUGE success!! Thank you to ALL of you who showed up at DirtyTurtle Offroad Park and showed your support for this great event! This past year has been a VERY trying and a VERY stressful year for us for sure, but thanks to all of you who helped me get my focus back on what this event is truly all about and showing and voicing your support!!

It was awesome seeing the familiar faces at the new location, and all the new faces makes me feel VERY good about the future of this great event!! I can honestly say that those who support ZookiMelt are some of the best people on the planet hands down, and NO ONE will EVER convince me otherwise! For those of you who could make it this year, you missed one of the best events EVER and I really hope to see you next year as we try and make it even better (if thats even possible!).

And a HUGE thank you to all of those great vendors out there who supported us with the awesome donations for this years raffle and other support. Spidertrax Offroad, Rocky Road Outfitters, Summit Racing, Top-Offroaders Magazine, Nudi Suzuki Salvage, Adam Ford, Zuks Off Road, Williams Off Road Lighting, Metal Head Graphix, V3 Jeep Shop, Axel Off Road Gear and Apparel, Muskopf Vinyl Designs, Low Range Off Road, Trail Tough Suzuki Stuff, Cliffs Insane Terraine, Trail-Gear, and last but not least, Dirty Turtle Off Road Park.

Thank you again for all of you who helped with the event, with out support from people like you, this event wouldn't event be possible. And thank you Ack for all the great tech support and doing the first ever live phone call during our raffle, and thank you MY from Zooks Off Road for being a part of it. It was a pleasure!

ZookiMelt 2013...Meltin The Shell!!!!

Metal Head Graphix was glad to be a part of it with it's meager contribution this year, but hopefully next year I can attend and do even more for the Melt!

glad you were able to pull it off and make it one of the best, I know you've worked hard and put up with a lot of bullshit. just goes to show, once you've been to the best, there's no hope for the rest !

I had a great time and was happy to do the decals for the melt again. It awesome to see my design on the shirts and the zuks. I am already thinking about a new decal for next year I think this was the best one so far and will be hard to top. If anyone missed the sticker and still wants one I have plenty left just pm me they are $2 each. Even have the 2012 & 2011 if someone needs a replacement.

Zukimelt was a wonderful event this year. You could really tell lots of hard work went in to this event. We had a great time. This was our 5th and best one yet!!! Great seeing everyone as always. Met a lot of nice new people this year also. Hope to see everyone next year!
