IBC road to Memphis

11/18/12 - To call last nights fundraiser/house party a success would be an understatement.It was one of those events that leave an indelible mark on your life to say the least. We thank you for your generosity, friendship, and all the good vibes sent our way. Joe and Gill were nice enough to let some strangers use their beautiful home and all that attended were gracious guests. We definitely made some lifetime friends! Robert Rankin did an AMAZING job putting this together and his caring and enthustaic nature helped to spread the good vibes(I think the killer BBQ helped too!). The CONQUEROOS are thankful to have not only fans but TRUE FRIENDS! We thank everyone involved and look forward to doing our best in Memphis for you guys.
