--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We are really excited that it all came together. This should be a huge weekend!!!

Thursday evening PJ will man the loader and begin work on the David Herman designed track. We'll be back Friday morning at 8 AM and work all day. We need as many people that came come out to spend any amount of time you may have available to do the fine tuning.

Concessions available. Sandwiches, pretzels, nachos, snacks, water & assorted beverages for an affordable cost. Please keep food & drinks you bring in low profile. I really don't think its going to be an issue but technically they are the only ones who can supply the food in the building.
