Too far out to get into this one, but I'll look into it next year if this is a regular event. Gym looks to be a sweet place, I'll have to swing by if I'm ever in the area.


I got family in FT.Myers Im gonna look into buying plane ticks so I can attend.


Hope you can get a plane ticket and make it to our event. Where are you coming from? If your family is here in Ft. Myers you should invite them and friends in the Ft. Myers area. We can always use more people.


If you're ever in our area stop by and check us out.


Yes I will for sure come by next time im in the area or I will be there for the event.My family live either in Ft.Myers or near it I cant remember, I would be coming out from seattle.


Sounds good. Hope you can make it.


Check out some footage from this past Sat.'s truck pulling practice session. Wallace International Trucking Co. was nice enough to let us borrow one of their semi-trucks for the day.
