    Default Very sad news

    Unfortunately we will not be attending STP this year. We have had a slow year in the business so our finances just don't justify taking the trip. Such is the downside of living so far away. But, there is always next year!

    Have fun everyone and take lots of pictures and post them so I can be jealous.

    Very sad news indeed. We'll miss you. Hope things turn for the best and you're able to get back next year.

    Steve,

    Sorry to her we will miss you being with us this year. Some of understand the tough times along with you (I was laid off in January and am looking for my next position - but, my waterskiing is getting a lot stronger this summer).

    Thanks everyone!

    Brad, sorry to hear you were laid off. It's a brutal world out there right now. Hopefully it will turn around soon or I will have to come up with some creative ways to make money.

    The timing for me has been quite good. Not having to deal with work allowed me to bring the boys north for their Spring Break and now they are back again for several weeks. Chores around the cabin have been done and we are in good shape. Waterskiing skills have improved - so, things are going well. There are some interesting positions out there now. So, we will see what happens and when.
