I apologize, did you think I was talking about you? I must admit I am not aware of how much you battle since I have never seen you at a MWC or IRC Nats or any of the regionals I attended since 2009, so please forgive my ignorance as I don't mean to offend. I assume then that you battle up in Washington.. where rules lawyers, cheaters, and over-competitive captains do not participate. So.... why are you worried about what folks do in other areas? I am confused.... For the record .. I don't care what you guys do in Washington.. please have fun and enjoy yourselves!!! As for the rest of this nonsense.... Don't worry I will put down my keyboard to help you get your ship ready for IRC fast gun Texas-Style. The shop is almost ready so I will be able to do some work soon. Then you will be ready to take on the Texan Horde at Nats! No reason to skip Nats anymore!!! Let me know when your flight is arriving and I will pick you up at the Airport and you can stay in the spare room. Looking forward to it!!! XOXO PS I did quit the hobby.. in the form I was doing it. I will work on boats at my leisure and if they are ready I might battle locally .. if not.. whatever. Not hosting any events again.. ever.
