To all:

Well, I have to admit it -- I didn't do as good a job of providing  
coverage of SpeedWeek on as I might have.  I'll blame  
it on Nancy's successful week (best run 199.355, new record in  
Production 1650 (motorcycle) of 198.9), and me hitting the marker at  
the 4 1/2 mile on the long course -- at about 200.  I didn't crash --  
but did bring a few bruises back to the pit.

I took and posted some photos -- but not as many as Jon Amo used to  
do.  I don't know where he used to find the energy to wrench, do  
photos and updates, and eat -- much less rest.  But he did -- and I  
guess it shows, since he was named the Bonneville 200 MPH Club person  
of the year for 2009 for having founded

Nancy and I will be attending the other four land speed events at  
Bonneville this year, racing some at World of Speed, but only  
spectating and reporting for the website at Bub's, the Top Speed  
Shootout, and World Finals.  I hope we can find a way to keep up - and  
keep you up to date -- with run logs or such.  I'm sending a request  
to Delvene, at Bub's as soon as I post this note, to make sure she  
gives me the logs that last year she promised b ut never delivered.

I hope you all will find some room to keep the faith -- that I'll get  
more coverage on the website as soon as possible.
