My wife said something about getting a Black Eye and eating some Peas on Saturday night so, I am rethinking my plans- it may be a short day for me. sad.gif For everybody else, if you're on the fence about going, I highly recommend it- if not to show, to hang out and enjoy the good company.
ELF_DUDE

Guys I am Teaming up with the MIDWEST BMX Donation program which helps provide BMX bicycles to children in the mdwest area who dont have a bike, They also provide bikes to bmx tracks to use as loner bikes. If you have any extra race parts misc stuff it would be great to see them given to a good cause. there is a forum post in vintage if you want to contact them yourself. If you have already donated to that cause then cool deal, there will be a collection box at my show for these parts and they will get shipped to them for use on these builds.

Guys. I am sending out a nice box of goodies in the AM for the show for the raffle. Alot of New and NOS items from the program that havent been used and will be very nice gifts!! Thank you for supporting the bmx program and I hope to try and make it, due to a new baby work, wifes bday I might miss it, bad weekend, but if there is a collection think with your hearts as for the program is out of funds, and we cant go any further until $ comes in...


thank you

ELF_DUDE
1 week until show time Guys if you have any questions Please ask them now I urgee You to, As it gets closer i will not be able to answer my phone as much as i would like to and the calls seem to be coming in more as we get closer. I Am going to do a sort of race around the park, to keep it fair the rules will be a bit differant so bring a dirt beater to tool around on if you want to participate. We are also in need of a new BUNNYHOP champ WILLINOIS says he is to old to participate and is still recovering from two years ago.
