I have been getting the underground  shop ( Batcave ) ready for us  
Better suited to engine building  , and cooler temps too 
Installed some real bright lights for detail work
Polebarn is still available as always if we want to be outside as well
Pontoon boat is in the water and ready to cruise the water
We can call Wookie and KZQ Bill and share the fun  like last year
See you all soon

Thanks for the clean up work Dirk. Jim as for the new attendee I’ve Dona about all I can do. He knows the dates and address. I’m sure he will be busy building bikes. I’ll text him again. 

Brad looking forward to seeing you. Based on our conversation you need a day off. Don’t make this week stressful trying to pack in too much. I’m not in any rush for my parts.

Dave, hope you make it, your engine building experience will be an asset.

I'm a little rusty  , but my motor is still tight and hasn't spit out any parts yet
