    I would have to vote for Friday night. We all had to leave early on sunday to beat the heat and such.

    Thanks for everything, really cool shop.
    I think Friday would be good cause everyone is excited about the weekend and more lively. There are less people around Friday , but if they have a reason to be around Friday night...

    Thank you for your hospitality Dan. It was a brilliant way to end the weekend, very relaxed. So for that reason I'd vote for keeping it Sunday.

    I like Sunday a lil better too. The vibe was great and relaxing. Plus I missed the Primer Nats, but made it to your Open House and sure glad I did! Again, Thanks Dan for taking the time and offering this deal. Though the weather was weird. Monday was sunny and nice, not sure what happened on Sunday. It was a good day to wash my truck though.

    I,m voting for Sunday. It was a great ending to an already great weekend. Plus Friday will be harder to get people from out of town to show up in time (like me).

    Thanks Dan-great party.

    BTW, what is the name of the band?

    yeah, seems like sunday is the best, thinking of friday afternoon traffic on labor day weekend doesn't sound like much fun. The band was Captain Jeffrey and the Chumbuckets, they were great, can't thank them enough for driving up and playing. They even brought their own P.A. Hopefully if word gets out that this is an annual thing it will just get bigger and better. it would be great if the Primer Nats was more of a 3 day thing like Paso used to be. There's so much to do in town, plenty of cheap hotels etc. Thanks again for the support with the new shop, it's been a ton of work getting it up and running, and my wife and I made lots of sacrifices to make it happen. my family told me if I didn't at least try it, I'd always regret it, so here goes nothing....

    Awesome photos Scooter. Thanks.
     
  21. Thanks for the pix guys.
     
  22. I'd say, do it again next year and keep it on Sunday...Friday does seem like too much hassle to get there and get situated. Sunday just caps off a great weekend...
