Here you go, Jim - and everyone.  Sorry I didn't get this going sooner -- had some traffic jams on the information superhighway.  Have at it, girls and boys. :cheers:

As of right now, If we get our Fatboy ready to go, we may just go back out for the WFs.

I thought we may have nicked the engine a little on our 11th pass, but so far all looks pretty good, so we'll freshen it up, and give it another try.

I don't think we can stand by and watch Rouse go by himself. Checking to see what engine we have available. I know, let's try something with all eight cylinders this time!

Is it true - or the rumor mill?  I just heard from Doug that Richard is pulling into Wendover and was told that WF is cancelled.  Hunh?  Any word on that?

JoAnn doesn't answer yet at SCTA - not even 9AM there - and so I don't have any confirmation for youse guys.  And I'm not gonna rattle Bill Lattin's cage right now -- 'cause if it's cancelled he's got lots to be doing.

Let us know, please.

Yes.    The cancellation of WF is true.  I just received a call from an official that there is water on the salt from the recent rains.

Land's End Lynda says there's an inch of water on the salt - and a new storm is rolling in.

Ah, that's a similarity to SpeedWeek -- both WF and SW can get rained out.  Bummer. :cry:

Typical Mother Nature,
