"IT was an electrical problem, Piston came out and knocked the plug wire off."

Laughed my [email protected]@ off.
THAT, is hilarious

Yep I met him Washington NC and talked to him a few times here around Lake Norman a few years back. A little odd but a super nice guy.

6:45 AM this morning, the cell phone rings...IT's Lobsterboy, OH the number I gave you the other day is wrong, here's the new one! ONLY Mark and even I remember that motor home. He would talk to it and beg it to make it home. One of the funniest S O B's I've ever met. And Mark was a made man many years ago into The Jersey Boyz Offshore Racing...He's Family.

You would be better off not spamming the board with 10 different threads promoting your event. Pick one thread and build on the event. The cause is good......promote it better.
