    Hopefully someone will have some photos and an update of the activities.

    Mike, you were a very crucial part of the build, an wish you had been able to stay for the banquet! That little 297JLO was perfectly clean and looked NOS!

    Beautiful sled! Awesome restoration. Many made it out here to the Northeast, but quite a few never make it past the barn. Watching an old post and beam barn's roof slowly collapsing on two vintage survivors on our road, that can't be bought. Same for cars, tractors, and antiques. Snow gets heavy out here. Glad to see all the effort applied for a great charity. Hats off, to those involved and especially the previous owner. Sleds been loved, despite the dust! :)
    Be nice until you don't have to be, then pass any way you can!
