Snow is the stuff Dallas/Fort Worth drivers use in order to collect on their auto collision policies . . .  :wink:

Well, I guess we're making a LOT of progress . . .  :roll:

We are NOT rebuilding . . . We are reloading.

Glen, in all honesty, we don't know what the committees are doing.  Which committees?  Last I checked, BNI scheduled the event, but . . .

There was a "suggestion" made by one of the panelists at PRI that it might be in everybody's best interest to skip 2016 and continue to pump over the summer months.  A show of hands indicated support from those in attendance, but it certainly couldn't be construed as a decision. 

As the Utah Coalition has yet to deliver their resolution, recommendations or suggestions, I'll be keeping my powder dry, continuing to stay in contact with my Senator's office, but also watching this thread.

Hope to have the engine done this summer, but there's so much yet to do.

If it happens, I'll likely wind up being a walk-on.

My work schedule already has me booked the 12th and 13th, so if it happens, the soonest I could arrive and be ready to race would be Tuesday.
