Just talked to Larry Garrett, cd of the SW. Since Harvey hit the state of Texas, as of this morning Waco has had 1" of rain total and no more expected. He said field is in great shape. The tents will be put up later this week.
One of the Arizona gang will be arriving this Wednesday and the rest of the AZ gang will be there this weekend. I will be there next Monday as a number of others.

David,
You might want to change your location in your RCU profile from Shreveport to Houston now that you live there... You might be confusing the folks not in the know.. LOL

At this time, unless things go in the toilet, two members of the BVM Jet Team will be at the Southwest. They are coming from BVM in Florida
