There will be a lot of that going on, just don't be obvious during the day. In the evening all bets are off! Same as Aberdeen except the caretakers of the fairgrounds do keep things in check. As always I will be the real party animal and go to bed at around 9:00. :roll: When are you going to get there?

I have some pictures, can anyone tell me if there is any way to get them on here besides copy link and paste link from photobucket one at a time? It can take an hour for 20 pictures and I am going to be busy tomorrow.

I spoke with Rick saturday and he said there was lots of rain around, mud everywhere. Friday too.
Sounded like he was having a god time just the same. He mentioned seeing OMGM and others- Rainman was supposed to be around too.
