I believe the deadline to enter is fast approaching. If so, I would like to still get in please. I don't have a kit yet but I plan on either an AMT fire truck of some type or, I just traded with another member for his Moebious Lonestar. It would be one of those two.

I've been talking with a member here about fire engines and on the Lonestar trade neither of us has shipped yet so I've got nothing to show.

Enter late, start late, but hope to finish ON TIME.


 

You're not late. According to the rules you can start up to 48 hours before the end in August. you have lots of time.

Thanks Scott. I had read the rules on page one and didn't see that mentioned. It does say it starts on the first so I figured I'd have to be in before then.

Doesn't change my late start though .:lol:

Jeff 

Thanks for getting this together. I think it’s been 2yrs since I done a BRBO and I can sense this one’s going to be a lot of fun a very different atmosphere than the last one that I was in

I'll open up the box for the truck tomorrow. I'm really hoping to get the trailers before the end of the month. If not, hope itll be ok to add them later.

If my late entry, and my lack of a definitive rig to build, got snarled in the loophole I will withdraw from this years build-off. I have an entry in the Cannonball so I can concentrate on that. And I can build a rig without the time constraint.:lol: I wasn't prepared for this years build.

Looks like a big field this year!
