  3. That's a good point, Shaz. That will be A LOT of tables for all of those battles happening simulataneously. I'm sure they've thought of that, though...

  8. Yes, that's what we did last year. Convoyed down the highway. Arrived JB after lunch. Checked in. Ate. Drank. Painted. Slept. Woke up real early and drove across for breakfast.

    Just need to take the Friday off.
