    wow thanks again for the great info! you have helped me out a lot! sadly i cant attend the event at bluff city. I have a military drill that weekend. I did register for the one at west fork this weekend though. its a 5 hour drive but i think it will be worth it. besides never really been to that part of the state and want to get familiar with the area because I plan on doing a little racing if I ever lose some fat lol. thank you again for all the help! I am so glad I found these forums.
    By the way i'm Dylan. and would like to know your name if you dont mind?
    Thanks again,
    dylan
