Isanti will be my first national since 1983. Not sure what to expect, but it should be fun.

Keep us up to speed on that baby....

I hope everyone is okay with the tornado's, straight line winds, hail & rain. We had our siding damaged (again) and a flooded basement as well as golf ball sized hail. I just heard on the news that a 2 year old child was picked up in the F4 tornado in Hugo and was found dead in a swamp. There were 50 homes leveled and 100+ damaged up in Hugo. My thoughts and prayers go out to the people effected by the storms... angel.png

My god, very sad news about that little tyke. Sorry to hear about the storm damage, I was just thinking about that Sept storm in '06 that you guys dealt with. Good luck with the clean up...
B. Apold
The storm again blasted my house and roof. 500/deduct (yeah!!!) doesn't matter, I just tell the adjuster to make that go away in the estimate...

Sad news on the little guy in Hugo... was it actually Hugo?

Did the barn survive that hit??? it had to be pretty damn close.

Me and my boys spent the day in Hugo. My coworkers house 3 houses from where that baby killed.
sad sight in Hugo. My house, truck,trailer,Sean's truck all damaged
Ted Carl
I really thought we were going to get whomped, but we didn't get a drop of it. We were right on the edge. Bad deal.

I haven't heard much about the MN caravan to the rock. I found out a couple weeks ago that Mom and Sis are coming to town. Guess when? No Rock for me again this year. dry.gif

Sorry to hear bout that Dug. My daughters Cabrio got throttled it too (hail). Those poor Families and that little boy. Its a true tragedy. I have a 2yr old and as I watched the news yesterday I looked over to her and just hugged her.

Glad you didn't get hit Scotchucky. Were changing colors this time.

So is the barn okay??? anyone???? I can't believe 60-100mph winds wouldn't flat'n that place or atleast do damage to it.
scott Boecker
brad, the major damage was in Hugo, I was there for the whole thing. it was very sad to see them doing CPR on the kids. It was lucky it was a holiday weekend , most of the house i checked were emty.

Still looking for a place to ride practice nights... I seriously don't know the outdoor scene, can anyone give me a REAL response? At least Manning mentioned a track, even though it's been closed for 20 years.
