WAGM TV, and I requested a copy to send out to this site and others. I'm guessing maybe they are not through showing it, like an extended run due to popular demand ? Yeah, right. When I get it,you got it. See Ya in October...

One of the members on the HAMB site posted the news article, here it is again along with member comments http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cCfVAsA7R3g
Also have a You tube  video supplied by WAGM taken on our visit. For what ever reason they clipped off the very beginning and end, but I think everyone will get a taste of the place. I'm also slowly editing a video I took, mostly of BJs #133 
Enjoy !

We are deciding, based on information currently being gathered , what dates would be the best concession to allow the most participants. Between the Bird Refuge conflict, and 2009's schedule of events being held by long established LSR organizations, we are really squeezed. We have a few options we are exploring, and should have which weekend posted in a few weeks. We will set up a discounted preregistration arrangement to gauge participant attendance at that time, with accompanying event info.
Everyone should have the opportunity to attempt to create a new LSR site, it would really give you a renewed respect for the continuing efforts of the likes ECTA and SCTA.

Thank you very much Mr. Wanner, your awesome! I'll see if I can't scrounge up some people to come up there. I know one person in Cannada and his dad that will make it, plus maybe a couple people from DC and maybe a nut or two from Texas.

PS: I like cone duty!

PSS: BBQ and Tex-Mex of course!!!!


Thank you much again,

Bob,

Thanks for keeping us in the loop, and good talking to you at Maxton, thanks for sharing all the info! Let us all know how it goes, and if there is anything to help with.

Would love to take the new "Tiger" up there.  But did I understand you correctly when you said you DO NOT have emergency vehicles on course?

I take it Aug 1 and 2 are cast in stone now? Is there such a thing as an unprofessional firefighter? (meant to be a rhetorical question). If there is they can be the Assistant Site Safety and Health Officer........

Guy hope to see you there!

Loring in August is now on the schedule.

First of August, that is a good time at Loring.... just about the middle of spring and just before fall if I remember right  :roll:  Seems every time I was up there it was during the winter....  :|
This should be a great venue, wish it was in middle America, you guys on the coasts seem to have all the fun... don't worry Carl, after the "big one" your venue will be on the coast too  :-D
