It is like you said about last year. Its a bummer being on the outside looking in. I do have a bit of a complaint though. Their adds state the meet runs from the 9th to the 18th. I was there on the 9th, and found out that nothing really started till the 11th. I had to leave there on the 12th. If I would have known the first two or three days were non sanctioned I would have gone down later. Oh well maybe next year mine will be ready. I am thinking of moving down there. I hate winter weather. I wish I would have had your number I would have called you. I did not have internet for a good part of the time I was down there.
Glad you are home safe, and had a good time. Perhaps we will meet next year.
