Re: [T3] Litchfield, CT Show Report

<x-charset iso-8859-1>Good Report!!!  Sounds like I didnt miss anything Im really after in the
swap... though I might grab one of those wheel housings if he brings them to
woodstock!  Good to see some good T3 sheet in the Northeast!!
    I woke at 7:30, checked the radar, and decided that 4 hours of driving
isnt worth it for Iffy weather... I really hate to miss this show but They
HAVE TO move it off Fathersday weekend!!
None of the kids can go because its time to study for finals... Many Dads
want to make a family day and not a show, and most importantly... this is a
BULLS EYE WEEKEND for bad weather climatologically in the Northeast.... were
at the peak of instability as we have the last insurgance of cold air over
the warm humid summer push from the south... the absolute WORST weekend to
plan anything on.
    Terryville is a no-go as this is the weekend of Parma, Woodstock will be
the only other show I make this year.... Bummer!
