Friday night there was a benefit dinner in the museum featuring Cook Neilson and Phil Schilling. Cook read a story about riding his old Ducati superbike ("Old Blue") at Daytona. Phil read a piece he had written about the Guzzi V8 GP bike from 1957. At the end of the talk, Mr. Barber presented Cook with an exact replica of Old Blue that the museum had commissioned Rick Lambrechts to create. Cook was stunned. It was a special evening.
