It's almost time go get ready for the trip to Quartzsite, AZ, and the BIG LadderBall Tournament. It's only a few weeks away now. All of our interested fiberglassers can start looking for partners for the double elimination tournament. Can't find a partner? Not to worry, we'll tell you how to join. In the next week or so, I will be posting the tournament rules. Want to build a set to practice on? You can Google "Team Dandy" for plans. I also understand some prizes are forthcoming. It's easy, and fun, to join in. See you in Quartzsite. - - Earl A.
