I'm a maybe for FVOR Sunday. There's a HS in Keithsburg I was thinking about but not sure I'm feeling the 6hr drive round trip for all you can eat sand and whoops. Could use the seat time though.

I read that somewhere and just figured it was something they say every year as a joke. Kind of like the moose run always being easier this year than years past etc.

If that's true though I may reconsider.

It's the running gag. Every time I go to K-burg I swear I'm never going back.

I will not make it this year. Too much on my plate right now to be fucking with dirtbikes. I should have my shit together in a few weeks.

5/4 at Glasford is a good race.

I'll make that one for sure.

I should be able to make that one. Waiting to see where the 4/27 race location will be. Should be able to make that one too if it's not too far away.

Brian you still thinking about going to FVOR tomorrow? Anyone else? I just called and they said the track is in excellent condition but the trails are still pretty soft.

If I go I'd probably plan on being there around noon to give it a chance to warm up some.

Maybe. My mother-in law is very ill and I'm actually at the hospital now. It will be a wait and see for me. I think Elroy (Dave) is going.
