1) Beware of the man with just one gun.

2) Old age and experience will win over youth and enthusiasm.

3) Dirt is older than rocks, Billy is older than both

Well done my friend.

Wink secret to success

It's no secret that knowing what beer the judges drink will boost your scores. On my last maneuver after a 3 negative G push out from a 45 inverted down line, there is a half roll followed by a full roll in the opposite direction. One judge gave me a 10, and a judge I don't know gave me a 5.5. This judge also gave Ron a 4. He either doesn't like RVs, or is disappointed that we don't know his adult beverage. Thanks for the congratulates, and will have wonderful memories and new friends for life.

Willyeyeball,
