I had a call from Glen Barrett about 3:00PM PDT. He had just arrived on the salt.

He says the salt is bitchin. It even has the diamond like glitter to it. Just slightly soft but it was warm, as I recall he said 85F, and a slight breeze.

I asked him if he thought it could take the horsepower and his reply was...."It will be perfect by Saturday."

Then he excused him self while he went to change his skidders.

That's all I know folks.

See you there.

Mike, I guess I don't understand the statement about course preparation. All I said was that the salt was slightly soft but Glen figured it would be great by Saturday. I didn't intend to imply anything about their experience from last year.

If there's something I don't know that relates to preparation, please fill me in.

Freud I think Mike comment was towards the comments made about the course prep from last year!! I mean there is a couple of hundred years of salt racing experience working on the course.

 The were a lot of complaints and experts on the site talking about last years course.  Last year you could have drug it with every slead known to man and it would have not made it any better.  Mother nature is the 1st person to course prep and if she does not give us something to work with then it comes out like last year.

 For the racers that are new to this they did not get to see the real bad year before the salt pumping started... Or when the season was washed or snowed out for the year..

Freud, sorry for the misunderstanding. Bob's right, there were some folks last year who blasted our volunteers because of the race course prep. I was just pointing out that this is the same team of helpers this year.

On my way to heaven Cool
