  • Live from Grass Lake

    Arrived earlier today, finding Runne's and Simmons behind Brinkmans, along with Tom & Colin Smith, the Ross brothers and Brian and Charlie Rose. The pits look great. All is ready for everyone tomorrow. Can't really call it Grass Lake anymore, due to no weeds at all. I will post pictures tomorrow during the day if I can get wireless access.

      will post pictures from wireless cafe in town today. The weather is trying to clear, but it is raining here now. But it is a warm rain. No thunderstorms. I only hope the chalk lines they drew in the grass for pit size is waterproof! More later...

                  Update from Grass Lake

                  Just wanted to let everyone know that Butch Miskerick is here, but I don't have a picture of him yet. Pits are filling up, the west coast teams have arrived, and Rocky who I don't yet have a picture either yet begged for some of my burgers I was cooking on the grill. Here are some pics for you to enjoy, tomorrow will be a better photo op day.

                          7 day forcast

                          The weather report for the nationals looks promising for right now. Chance of rain showers are at a minimum with temps. in the low 80s. Of course who believes weather people anyway? It's going to be great even if it does sprinkle a little!

                          The upper level low pressure system responsible for yesterday's showers may produce a similar situation today. We'll start out with partly cloudy skies for your Sunday, although the clouds will begin to thicken up as we head into the afternoon hours. An isolated shower or thunderstorm will once again be possible during the afternoon and evening hours. As the system to our north pulls away from the Great Lakes tonight, expect clearing skies. We'll keep things dry until late Monday into Tuesday when another system heads into West Michigan.

                              Sunday the 26th 3:00 pm

                              Well we pulled into the pits this afternoon to a gusty westerly wind with overcast skies. Pits were filling up SLOWLY. 122 pre registered pit spots. More trailers pulling in every 15 minutes or so. Very well organized and layed out nationals. Everthing has its place. Atmosphere layed back and people just enjoying the day. Saw Chistine Brewster taking a picture of me so I took one of her back! Here the pictures I was able to take and even a few of our four legged ones in attendance. Enjoy, will post more each day as time permits.

                              Yours in reporting - Tomtall
