Harbor freight is selling their rapid pump 2 ton aluminum jack (the low profile dual spring longer one) for $139 .
If you use this coupon :

I bought the wets a few years ago, and never had to use them..... I sent them to Cletus so we would have them for national events, and it started raining at locals all the time.  Now that they are back we should be ok

I'm not a fan of starting later.  I don't think it will have any real impact.  I'm sure most people aren't staying away because its awful to get up and be somewhere by 9am.
What we need is to get our schedule out there, and entice people to come.

I'm OK with something like bring first timer and you both get $5 off (because in the end we add the chance of getting a new regular on board).

We've also kicked around the idea of trying to go the the shred and regan cruise night and pass out flyers/schedules or something like that to try an lure new people.

In the end though, I really think its the same problem as real estate..... location location location.  We'd be pulling more people from other regions if we had a more entertaining site to use, and right now we just don't.

We decided to make all events private, only people who came to the meeting can run.  Everyone else has to perform all needed administrative tasks :-) .

As far as stuff that matters to most people, Jim will continue doing all the work, and we are going to have a street tire class again.
