Well, the Showdown is finished, I finally slept all night, I lost 5 more lbs. (lots of thanks!!), my blood pressure is back to normal, and we've raised lots of jingle for the museum. I had this grand plan for handling the extra campers Friday but not for the inch and a half of rain! Friday was NOT a good day for me. I was so stressed for a variety of reasons that I was convinced this was my last show. Saturday turned all that around when everything actually worked out pretty good. The infield was a little messy, but considering the rain we had I REALLY lucked out. Everyone made the best of it and I thank you for the support. I only had one car I had to throw off the track for being dumbasses. I thank my wife Kim and our "staff" of volunteers that come back year after year for a t shirt and free lunch. There is a handful of them that I COULD NOT do the show without. When they quit or cant do it, the show is done. They are HAMB'ers and know who they are. Thanks to Curt for the best art year after year. Thanks to everyone that camped that cooled out after midnight and did not leave me a mess to clean up. As long as those two things are done I will do all I can to provide free camping. And finally thanks to everyone that have a multitude of shows they could pick to go to throughout the year (and at the rate of fuel prices and just generally the cost of going anywhere) they drive for hours to come to our little show in a muddy field. The payoff for me is that now ANYWHERE I go to a car event someone stops me and says they have the most fun at our show. Thats still the best for me. See ya at the Drags in the fall! Get well Skate Fink.
