That's what I'm talking about!! Might beat you there this year Howard. :D

hiaguy - 8-14-2018 at 07:24 PM

The 8th (Monday) is Thanksgiving here in the Great White North, but I plan on spending that day in the car - getting to the Shalimar by about 8pm.
(If the current plans change, I might be there as early as Saturday the 6th, but it's not looking good.)
Ines' attendance is still a question mark, but we're optimistic that she'll get there.

cheezycheese - 8-14-2018 at 07:55 PM

Fingers crossed

jeffnyc - 8-15-2018 at 10:52 AM

lol - I can't even believe this... most of that week is already booked up - I'll be in Massachusetts. I'll try to hold the beginning of the week open, but this is just getting silly.

Look Jeff, we're all getting sick of this. You have a choice to make - feed your family or come play on the beach with your pals.

Can't wait to see everyone! Thanks Howard for putting up this post! Fantastic! Now it's official!

hiaguy - 8-29-2018 at 02:48 PM

Only 40 days to WBB Fall 2018!

Call the Shalimar and get your room booked!

If you're in the mood to post items for sale at WBB, here's as good a place as any.


Dates: October 8th through the 14th :wee:

WELDNGOD - 8-30-2018 at 01:00 PM

Not looking good for me. Got medical issues requiring me to be out of workfor a straight week. If I use vacation ,I won't have any for wwbb. If I take the monetary loss, I don't think I can recover from it in 1 month. No OT right now.... :(

cheezycheese - 8-30-2018 at 01:29 PM

Say it isn't so... :(

shehatesmyhobbies - 8-30-2018 at 02:23 PM

Feel your pain Donnie. Heading under the knife next Thursday myself, I will be outta work for two weeks at least, but I'm still going to figure a way to WBB.

Make sure to take care of yourself. We will miss you not being there but we know you will return when you are healthy.

hiaguy - 9-16-2018 at 06:54 PM

Only 22 days to WBB Fall 2018!

Looking at the NAPKA pilots list, there are quite a few regulars that have let their membership expire. Come on guys, NAPKA provides the liability insurance that we need to satisfy the permit requirements at WBB. Please renew your membership in advance of the event.
(If you're not sure if you're expired or not, feel free to U2U me.)

Really looking forward to seeing you all :wee:

jeffnyc - 9-16-2018 at 09:52 PM

Heh - glad I did the auto renew... I'm king of forgetting that stuff. Which reminds me... think I still have to do the form again, huh...

24K_Hugs - 9-19-2018 at 10:08 AM

Just booked the hotel from the 12th to the 14th!
Ill see you guys on the sand! I just need to join the NAPKA.

shehatesmyhobbies - 9-19-2018 at 01:46 PM

Welcome 24k. I will surely see you when you arrive. Ask for me when you get there someone will point you to me.

Rich

aronma - 9-19-2018 at 02:59 PM

Someone please post pics for me. I'm having withdrawals already. I'll need to stay the full week in the fall to make up.

We'll hold you to that.
In the meantime, you'll be AWOL for a good cause. How many years is this for you and your girlfriend?

shehatesmyhobbies - 9-21-2018 at 03:51 PM

Only 10 rooms booked, where's everyone at. Let's get them rooms booked and get ready to get this party started!

EDBsKites - 9-22-2018 at 09:45 AM

Id love to be drive over on Saturday and Sunday, but as I am a poor 18 rear old college student, I'm not sure if I can spend the money on a hotel room. If some gracious sould would allow me to crash in their floor a night or two that would be awesome. If not hopefully I'll be able to make it for just Saturday.

More than one person looking to share a room. Check Wildwood buggy bash FB page. Maybe you guys can work it out. 3 way would be pretty darn cheap.

shehatesmyhobbies - 9-22-2018 at 11:29 AM

EdBskite, I see a Delaware area code on there. Where in DE are you located. Are you just learning? Board or buggy?

EDBsKites - 9-22-2018 at 01:14 PM

I've been flying kites for a while, I've gotten pretty decent on landboarding and on the water but just haven't had the time this summer to really use my buggy. In in northern Delaware almost PA. Hopefully you guys can steer me in the right direction on my buggy.

hiaguy - 9-22-2018 at 02:05 PM

Ed, you're in the right neighborhood! Rich needs a reason (excuse) to get out of the house for something other than work.
Showing up at Wildwood will be the best way to get good in your buggy quickly. :wee:

hiaguy - 9-24-2018 at 05:23 PM

Only 13 days to WBB Fall 2018!
Hopefully by the time we get there, the beach-rakers will have left for the season :wee:

I am sorry that I have not been on social media or the computer lately.......however my stress level and home life are much better due to this so.....

I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm super pumped as usual to be going to my favorite event in the whole world.....that's right with my pink hula skirt and my kites already packed. No feeling like screaming like a girl while doing some down turns and powerslides.........Can't wait see you all in a couple weeks.

WAHOO.....

JR we tried to check it out when it opened in the spring, it was way too busy then. I did however get a tour of the brewery side before they opened. I was impressed. Looking forward to checking out their stuff this time around
