FINALLY, A REASON TO CELEBRATE!
September 7, 2020

Tina & Jim Wilson have graciously invited ALL Prop Riders for a social gathering at their house.

Date: September 12th  Time: 5:00pm
They have a yard big enough to welcome all.

Their house is about 15 minutes away from the Pontiac Lake race site. Y’all remember Pontiac Lake State Park?  We’ll be back there, someday.

The occasion: Well there really isn’t one; except for the fact that with the way this year has been, we haven’t had the opportunity to gather socially after the final heat, nor will there be a banquet to bench race and catch up with everyone.

MPR members attending are asked to bring a dish to pass. Tina & Jim have volunteered to supply drinks (hoo, boy!). MPR will provide hot dogs & bratwurst & buns. They have plenty of seating.

On behalf of all MPR members, I would like to extend a HUGE thank you to Tina & Jim for this invitation.
