    Hoping to make it to my first this year. Planning to head out that way Friday afternoon then stay the week thru the Hershey fun. Doubt I'll be racing, but you never know what car I'll be driving to Hershey for work! ;) LOL :D

    We are planning on going and trying to camp. That will involve setting up in the dark! Do people generally get there on Friday night and camp Friday and Saturday nights?

    I plan to camp at the drags as well and that is the only way I know how to set up my tent, in the dark! Just ask my camp mates at the Showdown, right Slick50? :D:p

    I've got to line up a dogsitter and figure out how to get them to her house then back to my house to trek up to the Drags. I don't want to miss this nightlife!

    I heard it was freezing last year.

    Yep! Cold as a witch's tit...but, fortunately, the "officers club" was propane heated to a balmy 90 degrees!

    Oh, and Mike....You still got the 'glide in your 'Trashinal?
    I think I got you covered, buddy....:rolleyes::eek:

    Does anyone have pics from last year they can post or link? I need something to get excited about now that Cumberland is over. This might be the ticket!

    Yep...that's a good-a-one!
    haha...

    I was hoping to be able to tree Don again this year, since I can't beat him! best I could do....:D Maybe w/ the Ranchero....I'll put down some killer 2.70 60' ft's

    If the truck wasn't back apart, we mighta had us a GREAT race!
    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh.....next year.........

    I hope Pat chimes in soon, w/ The Verminator...he'll make us all sorry....I think he went 10.60, or something like that at the Funny Car Reunion, car is runnin' good...

    With a few months of paint and body, and some luck, I'll probably run w/ E.C.G. next year at this here party...as long as they will still take me...;)

    Can't wait for this...

    Thats a good race!
    Either one....I LOVE that Sedan....I saw it at last years Showdown, I think, on display, and didn't realize that they still ran it!
    Way cool that they do...
     

  21. Not too cold....the stars are killer at night!

    Yep, We'll be there !!! Kim and I had a blast last year, the MOST FUN we ever had racing... cruising the track and visiting the MASH tent in the race car !!!!!! We're really looking forward to this -- the Verminator's really kicking this year. Heading to Maple Grove this weekend with ECG and NETO - see if we can hit the 10.5's...I know there's more in there - my fastest 1/8ths were at this show last year !!! See you all in a few weeks

    How about that surprise 4AM monsoon last year-- that was a rude awakening, considering we crawled into the truck a couple minutes earlier. Damn Nightlife !!!!

    Yeah...we were a bit worried, but, at least there was peace in the valley for racing...mostly, at least!

    Ahhhh...Two nights in the Beaver!
    It IS a beautiful valley...watching the cars at the top end with the mountains out behind them is killer, too.

    What hotel??

    Thats my poison right there, but cool fall evenings warrant Guiness and Cider, sounds odd, but we'll have plenty and it's GOOD, come over and introduce yourself to the Slick Devils, I'll hook you up with one in exchange for some rum.

    BTW, what time does the rubber band fight start this year?:cool:
