Got home last night about 10pm , put the car away and went to sleep.......lol...Have to say it was an outstanding time with outstanding people. There were some fun times and the bummer of it all was my car, I chased electrical gremelins and I think it's running way to fat best I could muster was a 5.99. so I need to iron out some things and get it back to mid 5s and all will be good. I want to thank everyone for a blast of a day and all the help in the pits and staging lanes. What a great group of folks we have here.

Hi Boyd and all. Just got back. Here's my take: it was fantastic. Somewhat smaller crowd than the first two years, but we all know about the challenges folks faced on many fronts this year. The 20 or so people who were there had a super time. Every year is somewhat different and every year is special. We had "backbone of draglist.com," Danny White and his wife Gena join us. It was great to spend time with Danny and to meet Gena. We had Painter Tom and his dragster adding to the fun. Great to spend more time with Tom. We had Eric Bru getting some strong runs in his 56 (probably enough to get his license) and that was awesome. We added a nostalgia Top Fuel Dragster to team draglist and that was great. We gave out awards to our members (again, thanks to Zappy) and we called them the "Zappys" (who needs a Grammy, Emmy, or Oscar?) We had super group breakfasts and dinners that were fun and on Saturday we had hot dogs, cole slaw, and chips at the track. Perfect outdoors eatin... we had a huge threat of rain (and in fact it rained hard on Friday and on late Saturday night) but perfect, chamber of commerce weather for Saturday's action. We had the full support and welcome of the Eddyville Raceway Park staff as always. We saw tons of great looking race cars and show cars (photos to come). And most importantly, we deepened the bonds between our draglist FAMILY. All this and there is a surprise announcement for next year that I will let others relate... We missed everyone who couldn't come and we hope that the photos and stories that will soon appear will somehow help to make it seem like you were with us. We certainly were remembering you as we enjoyed the weekend. bp

All I can add for now (til I get organized) is you all need to put next year on your calendars. I can say the surprise announcement PB is referring to will be something you have never ever seen before at a DLN's Event.

Hi everyone. Laura and I had a fantastic time with a great group of friends. There was tons of things going on, lots of neat little side stories.
The Draglist events just keep getting better. We sure missed the ones who didn't make the trip.
Thanks again as always to Gerald and the whole Eddyville crew who go out of their way to make sure whatever we need gets taken care of. What a great group.
PS, The "RAPID ONE" got surprised with not 1---but 2---cakes. Wait til you see the photos of them!!!! It was so cool to be treated so nice by my friends. Thanks again everyone.

According to Rock & Gerald, I should be good to go!
BP, can you double check my crewman (Stubby) for a membership/username when you get a chance? He was/is having a problem signing in.
PS It was FANTASTIC seeing everyone this year!! Sorry if I was a bit distant but I had about 1.35 million things going through my mind worrying about the 1956 and the Nitemare Top Fuel FED...

Great, Eric! I will check on Stubby. Also, we'll get more info on the Nitemare team so folks can see them and meet them online. Super people. bp
