Hi All,

not sure if I can make it that day but it is marked on my calendar.

Thanks but the Florida State Fair does not want mechanics working on cars on their property.

So I removed your ad for them. My signed agreement with the State Fair prohibits cars being worked on.

Turns out not only did the wife have to work but I ending up with a Saturday class, so no way we could get up there. We'll miss seeing you guys but have a great meet none the less.
Perhaps next one.
