  1. Once again, I had to work until 9 pm tonight, but am hoping to be involved in many of the events described above. I wish I could have been there to be in on the details. In particular, coming up soon is the September 15 and 16 Showdown, which is farther away with more difficult logisitics. Are there cars available for carpools to that event? I am willing to drive out there to Helena with room to take three others (maybe four) in my truck – any interest? I still have to investigate where to stay.
