Better late than never...Thanks to the 23 hardy souls that attended the closing workbee last Saturday. I, of course, missed the festivities. Jim Dopirak and I were crewing for Curtis Easterling at Watkins Glen. To quote Curtis "Watkins Glen is SCARY FAST". Yikes, some car were approaching 180 MPH. I...

Workbee Reminder

The Vintage Race workbee is next Saturday July 21 immediately following the 5K Run being hosted by Suzy.

Re: Crack Patching, One More Time

This isn't looking good for tomorrow. We're only up to 3 folks. Unfortunately the temp isn't forecast to be above 50 degrees again for at least 10 days. Than who knows if we'll see warmer temps again. If noon doesn't work aim for 1 or 2 P.M.
