I'm going to try to talk Terry into letting me come down to Grayson Co. to
help set up the box tomorrow.  We're trying to get ready to move next
month, so we'll see if I can get out of packing boxes.

Has it been raining down there?  The mud boots we bought at the Nationals
should still be in the tower, so if it's muddy, we can use those.  The
firemen also might let us borrow theirs.

Any chance the box will be open for practice after the work is done?  If
so, I'll show up around 2:30-3:00.  Just kidding!  ;-)   If I can make it
I'll be there at NOON SHARP!

I just called the Holiday Inn Express to book a room and the hotel is
filling up fast.  In fact, they were out of the IAC rate rooms, but they
gave me the rate anyway.  I gave Bill a heads up on that, and he said he'd
call and arrange for more block rooms.  Anyone who doesn't have a room
better call soon if you want to stay where everybody else is.  They say
there are 2 weddings plus our contest that weekend.  For those who don't
know, this hotel is about half the distance to the airport as the regular
Sherman and Denison hotels, and the number is  903-464-0340.

Can't wait to see y'all there.  Fly safe!
