Well, with some exceptions. But, don't let me scare you off!

Hey, Tim. Good to see you loggin' in; glad to see all the little electrons make it all the way to Eager. :rolleyes: It was even better to see you in Phoenix a couple of weeks ago. Too long time no see.

When I saw the topic (Testing the Waters), I expected to see a drag boat ...

Best always,

Dan

Yo Danno,
I didn't know you were on here!! It was good to see you, too! Missed Lois and Paula NEVER did show up. So, do ya think the folks on here would like to see a Drag Boat? I'm gonna have to find some pics of that thing, if they do. I took a bunch years ago for the article in SAE, but,man, I sure don't know where they're at.

SAE. Dirty word. :blink:
Drag Boat. Kewl wordz. :P Take some pix. The folks who hang out here would love to see them! ;) Wheels or no wheels, they/we know great building when they/we see it!

FYI - I went to the IPMS region contest (Modelzona) today. Tom Walsh's bitchin' 1/8 dragster took "Best Automotive." No surprise there, huh? Thought you'd enjoy hearing it here first!!!

Again, good to see you! See ya again soon. Say hey to Paula for us (sorry we missed her, too). When I told Lois you were at the Postal Hall, she was sorry she didn't go. But she said she would see you at the Desert Scale Classic, GSL, or the new Copperstate ... whichever one comes first! :blink:

Dan,
Yup, that's bitchin' that Tom won "Best Automotive" and as you say,"No surprise there!" I wish I had some pics of it to post here for everyone. I'll bet they'd go 'ga-ga' over it like I did.
Sooo...what was the subtle hint about Copperstate? E-mail me personally or call me. I'm home most all day. I do have to make a run into town to the P.O. later on.

Thank you for the welcome aboard. And thank you for the kind words about my boat. I think I hurt myself on that one!!! LOL! It looks like some pics of my boat have turned up, thanks to Fuelish Spectator. I found about 3 really (and I do MEAN REALLY, REALLY) bad pics of it. These are so much better.
