Hi guys,

I regret to inform you all that I will not be able to come to the contest this weekend. I have too much going on getting ready for the contest in France in three weeks. Kyosho just sent me two of the new 06 Calbier 90s and I have a couple other new items that need to be worked out before Dwight and I leave for France. I hope to see all of you at Birmingham.
