You have done very little about the West Virginia Birthday Blenko.
Last year you said it was OK to park motor homes on lot is this still true?
We plan to be there Thursday by 6pm. Unless job requires me to work over.
Any other news about this event?

Anyone going to Birthday event this year?
Last year was my last hurrah.
The numbering system was a bust, we saw many hurt people.
Blenko should return to giving the numbers on the morning of the event.
Perhaps also try to treat all customers equally?

I agree completely. Totally unfair the numbering system. Katie Trippe is in need of a phone call.
