Seen Stacy "Hollywood" Hamilton yesterday and he is doing great still has a lot of therapy ahead of him.
Hope everyone had a great time at Tunica this year. I am open for suggestions for next year on how to make it a better pull.

I had a great time also, and was real lucky in my classes. The only issue was on the green side there was a line we were not supposed to cross, it was rather vague. I saw at least one tractor driver let off and stop thinking he was going to cross the line. He went 215 or so. Then some in that class went 220 and wasn't called on it. This was Thursday. Would of not have brought it up but you asked. Vic

I am aware of both problems, one I can correct the other I can address. Thanks for your comments.

I hope Keith told you "hello" from me tonight. We were discussing this post you opened when you called earlier. Good to hear of Hollywood's continued improvement. Please continue to pray for my wife, Marti. Her surgeon injured is back and was not able to operate last Thursday. We are sitting on "go" just waiting on further plans.

The pull was FANTASTIC and really one of the best run pulls around. My only suggestion would be concrete barriers from half track to the end to separate the tractors from the people standing on the edge of the track. There is a rope there, which keeps people off the track but probably wouldn't keep a tractor from driving off course if something went wrong. That being said, I know it is a ton of work to move barriers in and out of the building, plus they might be in the way of track prep in the evenings.

Before I forget - I'm combing through my pictures and video clips I took while there to produce a Tunica 2012 video similar to the one I did last year. Stay tuned.

I understand the confusion with the room issues and I will work with gold strike to clear the confusion. Also the breakfast buffet opening earlier.

The thing I noticed that would help is if the cones used in the middle of the track. Paint one red for the red sled and the other green for the green sled. I really had a great time can't wait to go back.

Another suggestion I heard was having an ambulance on hand in case something would happen. It is something that we do at all of the events at our fair as a precaution and would have ambulance and EMTs there if necessary. Not sure how long it would take for them to respond if they were needed. Still had a great time!!!
