I will try and talk the wife into going. This one of the few weekends that I might have some time available. Too bad I will just be watching as I was in a car accident recently that has left my back all torn up.

Hey Brandy,
How much will the food and drinks cost? Do you any clue? Just wondering how much cash to bring. I was going to bring my own chairs and shade canopy.

I am probably going to be there but I am wondering how the tournament is going to be set up. The main thing is how many falls. I also read that beginner and intermediate are not riding behind a super air 210, what will pull them? Finally, how much time are the practice runs going to last in the morning?

Thanks, Justin
