    Is there an alternate "rain date" in case the weather gets nasty? Forecasters keep increasing the rain chances.
     
  4. With all the busy schedules it's a one shot deal, we'll be here rain or shine. The park has a nice big shelter too. Looking at the forecast now it looks like friday and saturday are pretty safe, Sunday might be a different story.

    also there may be demonstrations of speed, grace and power :)...

    If it rains I'm fine, if it's worse I'm headed to the nearest hamb barn!

    Doing some route planing I can't help notice that the park has it's own circle track!

    And if we need more straight line action an oval is just south!

    This should be fun :)

    I assume the grocery store should be open during the BBQ just in case we need to grab anything?

    And if you want to do some dirt drags we could head over to the Threshing Bee grounds just South....

    Had a great time today! Wish I had more time to talk to everyone but it was great to put some faces to names and I look forward to seeing you all throughout the summer!

    I'll be attempting to make Pete and jakes shin dig on the 10th hopefully I see some of you there.

    Here are a handful of photos I took, spent to much time having fun and ultimately wrenching to take many more.

    Thanks for all the help Nate, Bill and Kerry! I owe you all :)

    We had fun. Nice cars, great food, friendly people, clean park, and no rain....well a few sprinkles on the way home. Who could ask for more? Honestly, I've only talked to HAMB folks on the net, but to meet everyone in person was a true pleasure. This group of guys and girls were some the friendliest folks I've ever had the pleasure of talking with. Now if I could just remember everyone's name I'd be happier...!

  27. Thanks to everyone who came out, it was a blast!

    People have been thanking me but this was definitely a SPAM SKINNERZZZ family production. Zach and Becky and Carly and Uncle Greg and Robin a lot of people put a lot of work into it.

    Especially thank Zach for bringing the T and doing cannonball runs down main street, I guess the constable was asleep somewhere :)

    Ned doing tech at O'reallys?

    Thanks to Nate, Zach, their families and everyone else for the food and keeping the event going. Jay left some big shoes to fill! I had a great time and I’m looking forward to next year.
