News from the Turning Wheel Editor:
Happy New Year to this entire bunch!
Now that year end celebrations are winding down some of you
will be wondering where your Turning Wheels went.
The January issue will cover the Lancaster International Meet
and it's a BIG issue.
It will be late in arriving in your mailbox for several reasons:
1. editors attending Lancaster lost 3 weeks of work time (but it's
the only vacation we get)
2. Christmas season slows down not only mail delivery but
business schedules as well
3. A problem with the official meet photos took an inordinate
amount of time to correct
Don't be surprised if your January TW arrives 2 weeks later than
usual. We apologize for the unintended delay. Hopefully the
February issue will be back on its regular schedule (we're
working on it now).
Many of you have heard that I intend on moving sometime this
coming year. Well. you are correct, if I can get my pennies together
I will do so. This of course brings me to the question of what am I
going to do with all my parts. Well, I don't intend on going out of
business. However, i do have to scale down. Therefore, I am having
a huge sale of my parts at our February 21st meet here in Kinston.
We are to meet at Kings Bar-b-cue at 1100 to have lunch and then
caravan to my house after lunch . You can call ahead if you need a
particular item. Ted Banner (252) 522-1925.
