Hey, were you the one in the TPR t-shirt that day? I was part of the "Renegade Crew," and I'm sure I saw you.

Great report from a fun day!

Ok, contest time. I have multiple trips to post, but need help in which one to post next. So....I will be granting wishes. Like in most wishing scenerios, I will grant three wishes, one each to the first three people who respond. Tell me which park you want to see next, the first person to respond will get their wish and so on and so forth, please, duplicate requests while humbling, shouldn't be made.

Here is the list to choose from:

Jersey Shore Whore - ~14 parks (note: some of the parks I have very few pictures of)
Kiddieland whoring - Pittsburg, KS
Heritage Square Amusement Park - Golden, Co
Alpine Sleds @ Heritage Square - Golden, Co
Lakeside Amusement Park - Denver, Co
Milehigh Flea Market - Denver, Co
Elitch Gardens - Denver, Co
Santa's Workshop - North Pole
Coors Brew Tour - Golden, Co

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

As promised, your wish is my command. Beer. An American staple and a favorite among many a C-TPR member is produced by many and perfected by few. Coors believes they have it perfected and are willing to give you three on the house to prove it, that is, if you take their FREE Brewery Tour! Yes, I said it, FREE Beer, and oh yeah, a tour to go with it.

When you get to the Brewery, you park in a lot at 14th and Ford where you board a shuttle bus. The shuttle bus takes you on a brief tour of downtown Golden, Co. where they give you bits and pieces of history on how the brewery was started.
