Not this year

Well, the trip from Iowa last year was so much fun, we planned to do it again this year. Unfortunately, all three cars in the last 6 weeks needed some kind of major repair (and major costs), so we will not be able to make the venture this year.

I get the feeling that the demos this year will be even better than last year, so we are really not happy about missing it, but reality says it will have to go on without us...

Have a good time and hopefully next year, we can make the return.

Headed that way from Tampa, FL Thursday morning. Looking forward to meeting everyone and a GREAT weekend! Sorry you can't make it Papaturner. I was looking forward to seeing you again.

I can appreciate that. I sprained my left knee last month and may need to keep the crutches close at hand, but that's life for ya'...gotta see how the contest wraps up. Now that Perry Bridges is not able to make it, and Cody Walker is running the contests this year, I think some new blood will have to tackle Charlie Wortman's winning streak.:biggrin:

Tina, I hope your knee feels better soon.

As for the pen contests, Wifey and I had a concept for a pen but I just didn't get around to it...maybe next year....
She said it just doesn't seem right to come to MAPG without a pen entry so Sunday, I started a pen. We will see if it comes together in time.

I doubt it will be a winner but I will say it will be unique!:biggrin:

I had better get back to it!

It will be good to see Dan again!.....sorry that Perry can't make it though.

Last year, we had a bunch of excellent pen entries! They were all deserving of winning in my book!
Maybe mine was just so wierd that the judges liked it......go figure!

See you at MAPG!
