I don't care what the dates are, but I really want to go to this year. I had a great time when I was there in 2011 and was bummed I couldn't make it last year.

The sooner you settle on the dates, the more likely I'll be able to get the time off. I don't know if he'll be able to, but I'm gonna see if I can get me dad to come up, too.

I'm watching the classifieds... I need everyone to let me win with my Stobel at the JEM so I can put that $500 check towards an Explorer

I would like to come this year. Missing Easter is out, but I would be interested in the Friday/Saturday schedule. If we decided to do Sat/Sun, I might come down for Saturday.

If it is Sat/Sun then I might be willing to be your driving buddy.

Waldo is emotionally not able to make the final decision to attend the Red Rocks contest until the Grand Trophies have been revealed ///===|||===\\\ (cedar burled butt scratching claw)::::Utahn Grown/Crafted/Polished/Inscripted (per 2012 Utah Open).

I'm now sitting on the fence at 60/40%. If we get to chase those glorious jewels; I'm all in.

So, for the appropriate Crown, What say ye? March/April dates on Thur-Fri-Sat-Sun can all work for The Great Pepper.

SoaringUSA will give $500 to the winner of the JEM contest IF they are flying a Stobel. I will have a Stobel but will need "some help" winning

Are you taking notes from the "How to cheat..." thread? Lots of good ideas there.

Jon - Alpine is better off weather wise. We have no temperature;0, no wind, but that 85% humidity will go right through any amount of cloths you have on. Wait till it gets up to the balmy 25 that is forecast.

I am tentative for Red Rocks but would prefer a Sat/Sun contest only to avoid using vacation time. Regardless if Fri/Sat or Sat/Sun I think I will be showing up the night before. Only a 5.5 hour drive from where I am at.

B, I believe those are the same servos Russ & I have tried and found them lacking. Let me go look and see what I have but let me make sure they are not the same ones I have that had centering issues.

That'd be great to know. I've found absolutely no reviews on them and thought they'd be worth a try. If you've had experience with them I'd love to know about it.
