    If you fly into Cleveland and come to the show with Don I will cook and serve you all your meals and have a cooler full of your favorite beverages.

    I'm really looking forward to finally meeting you and your lovely wife in person.

  11. For once, work is a good thing, huh?

    Ryan and the rest of you contemplating this, Larry and his crew put on an awesome show.
    I made it once, showed up late, and still had a blast.
    Been trying to get back there ever since.
    Hospitality says it all.

    I plan on coming to the show.

    This will be my first time coming up for this show.

    What is Friday night like? (I guess what I'm asking is should I sneak out of work early on Friday?)

    Forgot to mention the kitchen at the infield will be serving breakfast Saturday morning. And swap spots will be 25' x 10' , kinda set up like Carlisle where you pull in. I was up today figuring the spots. This is the first year we will have to actually mark off and assign spots.
    Progress :(

    I got a bunch of door prize stuff filling up my basement. So be sure to stop by and see the lovely Miss April for your Door Prize if your number is called. Clark I will be bringing fresh made Cotton Candy Friday night so you can have a great sugar rush to go with your beer buzz to help keep Larry entertained in the camp all evening long. I will see you all at the Gate entrance bright and early and let me be the first to say, "thanks for coming" Scott

    Ryan.... you are in Austin area? Southwest has reasonably priced flights from Austin & San Antonio direct to BWI. Showdown is ~1.5 hr ride from BWI.

    for people coming in early, larry's right on the mark about racing at "the Grove" on thurs. and fri., but needed to mention that it is the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars in town both nights to do battle with the "Pennsylvania Posse" some of the best racing in the country on one of the best high horsepower dirt tracks around (long straightways, short corners).

    Williams Grove is only Thursday and Friday night. If you want Sprint car racing on Saturday night you have to go to the Fabulous Lincoln Speedway.
