The USFRA as a well run organization, I very sorry for their loss on this race, I know it takes a lot of hrs of manpower to organize and conduct a race of this type, I want to thank them for all their hard work and dedication.  Dave

Are the Corvina biting?  cheers

Hey! For those of you that are ancient enough, (ahem, Freud.) how long will this take to dry out, given the weather forecast?

Well, it used to be Los Angeles . . . 50 miles north of Fresno now.

Remeber folks we only have 3 shots at the salt per year, our four if you can do the Cook Shootout, if you can only participate in one a year you just lost that year sad
If your lucky enough to live near Southern Cal ELMO is a great option and increases your chances to go fast by leaps and bounds. smiley

Here I sit in Jackson Hole, WY and just read the news about WoS.
I should be very pissed off but I can say I am only disappointed.....We cannot control Mother Nature.
Lynda and I have traveled about 2500 miles so far and have seen many wondrous sights in this beautiful country!
We will be leaving for NC in the morning and I expect that we will see many more sights on the way home!
The webcast we had planned will definitely happen next year!  cheers

Chris,
If it's OK, I'll take the equipment home with me and bring it to Wilmington next April!
I'll also get a tower computer and get it all hooked up.

Gregg

Currently in Jackson Hole, WY on our way back to NC!  cry  cry  cry

Well, ya'll sure know how to "Fly low" on those hwys where the speed limit is just a joke for the locals.
Glad you folks are OK.
Hope to see you at WF.
Maybe a cool one at Carmen's?

Thanks for double checking when we had to cancel.  Gary and I will be at the end of the road having a rain sale on tshirts and hats and stuff. I have a real good supply, groan! Come out and visit. Ellen

What a bummer. I have to agree with all the comments about how many events we each may have left. When we were about ready to leave Wendover after having issues at SpeedWeek, a fella said, "Hey, there's always next year!" I looked around at all the grey hair and remembered all the rained out events and thought, well, no... maybe there isn't always next year. Grab while the grabbin is good!
Best wishes to everyone who was all prepared to run and hopefully you can make the next event even more prepared (and hungry!)
