    yea, they're using lower, & some part of upper woodpecker somehow. I might head out tomorrow to check out the course setups to figure out where the good spot will be to watch from.

    Matt,

    I might make it out one day this weekend. Debbie is out of town tonight to GA for a few days and I have both kids. I'm thinking about one day, just not sure what one, probably Saturday if everything goes find on the kids end.

    What day are you going out???

    How about everyone else???

    Keep in mind, there is an entrance fee for spectating. Don't know how they are going to control that, and the other thing is the State Land pass, seems like the law is going to be checking more this weekend.

    Rob

    I'm going to try to go, but right now I'm the only one out of 4 in my house that is not sick (some virus thing, doesn't seem too bad so far). Anyway, with luck I'll see you guys there.

    Also, I still don't know my way around FJ. Where should I go?

    It was pretty boring, only 13 rigs competed. With ProRock running at JV at the same time, lots of people went out there. Mostly a good BS session though.
