Sounds great... but my 15th anniversary is the 10th. We're thinking about getting out of the region...

It is my understanding that a trip to Paris (France that is) is acceptable when done earlier than the actual date upon which an anniversary falls. (Might this turn into a "let's plan Waterrockets 15th wedding anniversay for him" thread? All due respect to RX.)

I'm coming and bringing the wife and kids along as well. They can explore Dallas and I can get my teeth kicked in by the 40+ crowd. Good times.

Yeah I really want to go, but they posted the date the DAY AFTER I committed to another obligation on the same Friday night.

So, thanks. Looks like I'll miss a fun race.

/ cue my rant about USAC's stupid "flyer approved" policies... can we at least have placeholder dates for future races? Sheesh.

yes, but the divorce and remarriage can be costly and time consuming.

This is a pretty crazy sport, when you think about it. If I'm driving to a race, planning my strategy mostly to avoid stopping at an ATM on the way home...
