Well sad to say thet Indy 2012 may not be in the cards for me :(
We will see but doubtful.
I might get a way with the weekend meet.....
$$ going to a different cause...
My daughter is now engeged :D :D :D to a great guy!
Looking like a September 2012 wedding has become a priority around here.
Darlene and Kelly are on the "fast track" for planning, kids are condo hunting etc etc.
House and grounds will be on the spring "detail" list for sure.....

A real bummer. Sorry to hear you may not be able to make it. Congrats on the engagement though. I understand the $$ issue associated with that event. And
in NJ it has to be an expensive proposition. Elopement is

Sounds like you'll have a busy next 12 months! Of course if you're like most Fathers of the Bride, your job will be relegated to just signing the checks. :eek If you can make it for the weekend that's great, if not, we all know where your time and money are going and that really is the priority. Congratulations on gaining a new son-in-law.

I need you to be in Indy. I don't think Stan can carry me. Seriously, congratulations to you and family. Still, try to come on over, we'll miss your smiling face.

By the way, I forgot to mention that when I ordered my picture last May, they sent me a 16" X 20" pic of Dan Wheldon by mistake. They finally sent mine after a couple of weeks. Eerie feeling having his pic in my Mancave. It's a keeper.

Rick -Yeah, weird. On a similar note, since John I went to the race in 2011 I bought a couple of the commemorative "winner" coins that they had done and are sold through the gift shop and we each now have one. Dan Wheldon is featured on one side of the coin. That was the first one I ever got.

If Bob can't show Stan would be licking his chops for "Most Clean" if we decided to let a LX platform compete. Hmmm.

May14-17 Practice time... Will be there after work as much as possible.
May 18 Fast Friday... Absolutely! I'll be there.
May 19-20 ... Qualification days will find me at the track. Big surprise.
May 23 Community Day... If work isn't too busy I might try and make it this year.
May 25 CARB DAY! Come try and find me in turn 3 if you can. We were the first ones into the track last year. Gonna try and repeat.
May 26 Legends Day aka Recover from Carb Day day.

And to make all that even better there's usually a bunch of 300M's that converge on the city for a meet. Will YOU be driving one of them?
