Default gatornationals

Anybody going to the Gatornationals in 2 weeks? The wife and I are driving down, spending a week in Cedar Key on the gulf side. Nice little house right on the ocean. We will be working the D.R.A.W. tent as volunteers all day Sunday. If anyones out and about stop by the tent and ask for Chris. Sunday the 15th will be my wifes birthday so our trip to Florida is her present. She has always wanted to go down for the nationals since it always lands around her bday. We are pretty excited and cant wait to get out of this Illinois cold for a week!

You are one lucky guy! She want's to go DOWN, you have a private location on the ocean, and you are going to a national drag racing event, and getting a birthday present credit for the excursion to boot.
Sounds real nice when you type it that way doesn't it?
Thanks for your contribution to the DRAW organization, they do a lot for fallen racers.

we have been members od DRAW for almost 10 years now. After the wife was diagnosed with MS back in 1999 she was going through some serious slumps. I hooked up with Rosalee Noble on the internet and the wife and I volunteered for the first silent/live auction they had in Joliet. We have worked it every year ever since and pretty much run the silent auction with a small group of friends we take up every year. I think the wife feels its a way for her to give back to other people and keeps her mind off her own problems.

you know i always check the entry list to see who's who and i'm
kinda rootin for erica enders and never find her name on the list
but see on the Qualifying Session, there she is running but she
DNQ on first 2 events, do they let them registar late and don't post
their name, good luck to her. And then Dave Connoly does not have
a sponsor and has sat out the first 2 and is not on the entry list,
but who knows he could show up on qualifying, good luck :wink:
