Re: Another gladesman gone.

Yea. Was at the club Sat when they got the call. So sad. I really thought he was going to pull through after the accident. I'll miss going by the shop and seeing him.

Re: Hovercraft on Lk Harney

I used to race them back in the late 80's & early 90's. I had a Scat with a Rotax 503. Raced in FL, Ohio & Indiana. Was a member of the HCOA. They are cool machines.
Have a great ride.

Good seeing you again, Tim. Good ride yesterday doing the Poker Run. I'm always a contributor to the pot...never win. I didn't even turn in my hands. On the other hand, Ish was sure drawing them Aces. The food was excellent. We'll hook up during the week.
