I want to extend a very special thanks to each of the Ellis’ and the Wilson Family for stepping up and keeping our little corner of the world open.
In talking with the Ellis’ and with Terry Wilson in the past few days they are very excited about the coming year. They will be putting some people in place to help get things done and help spread the word.
Rule books and the schedule will be out real soon so that everyone can get a great start to next year.
And I would be remiss if I did not personally thank each of you for reading my blog, the kind words everyone has sent me, it keeps me going. I look forward to a great year next year, I may be doing more things next year to help but more details on that later, thank each and everyone of you, my readers for sticking by me and reading each week.
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday an that you enjoy a special time with your family.
PLEASE keep our men and women in each branch of the Armed Services in your prayers this holiday season as they spend time away from family, to keep each of us safe.
Stay tuned for a couple new driver profiles in the next week and some surprising news about next season at NGS!
