This is going to be in Lowell, IN? I might be able to make it. Sounds like fun, not much going on otherwise in the Midwest in February. I actually got a package last week with a Freedom BMX pamplet. Can't remember exactly what it came with or who sent it to me.

Hey Ed,

I'm gonna do my best to get there.

My mother has been ill since Thanksgiving and is recovering very slowly, so it's still up in the air if I can attend.

That's why I haven't submitted a pre-order.

It might be a last minute descision, but, if you could, please hold that table for me.

Thanks.
