    Hey, this is only Monday, they still have 3 chances to change their minds on the weather.
    Maybe I will have to turn on the heat in my coupe! Gene

    I'm in for the breakfast and the 11:00 deal. I've probably only met 2 HAMBers in my life. It's like a secret society or something.

    I doubt many will be in town yet for the Fri breakfast. I will try to make the Sat meet n greet but I usually get busy talking with old friends and forget about the meet and greet

    My friend and I won't be getting to town until Fri evening, so will try to keep the 11am Sat meet in mind. I don't think anyone here knows me..... I'm shy. The only HAMB M&G I've been to was 2006 at Hunnert. Ancient times.

    Thank you for the suggestions. We are going to for sure now. The weather report is up to the mid to high 50's with only aa 30% chance of rain. Everybody making a fuss about it's supposed to rain on a certain day have to realize it's only a 30% chance for it to rain sometime during the day, not all day lol. So it could rain at 12:15am Saturday morning and not the rest of the day well then it would have rained on Saturday lol

    I'll be there regardless of the weather in the 49... I was just really hoping for awesome weather but it is Iowa after all, on a side note in case anyone from the south is coming up I-35 there will be a detour right before Des Moines... some retard thought it would be a good idea to try to take out an overpass with the top of an excavator mast? WTF:rolleyes: anyways heads up might want to be aware of.

    Bob- do you still have stack of stick on name tags that you usually bring to the Meet & Greets? Or was it someone else that usually brought them? I'll try to remember to pick some up if you don't have any.

    As several have mentioned the forecast will change throughout the week. Afer all, it's Spring and the Midwest. They changed the forecast to only a 20% chance of rain Saturday.

    Time to detail the car. Brought it for another shakedown run today, so far so good.
     
  27. Leave my boloney out of it lol! Man your gettin kinda personal!

  29. Will try to make the Saturday meet and greet. Depending on what the rain chances look like, may be bringing to 50 instead of the 30.
