Folks, I just couldn't wait anymore and discussed it with a couple others in our band from MN... A dear friend of ours, GSSF'er and GT member, is battling a really tough illness right now, which is the reason he couldn't make the most recent GSSF expedition. Without getting into a bunch of detail, for those of you so inclined, I'd ask that you add Loran Carter to your prayer list, that he keep his resolve & this disease be mitigated. He's working hard and we're all hoping that the current regimen of therapy can get him out on the road again for next year, and doin' the ol' soft shoe on our D1 target jig (which he developed). He's much more fun at matches; being "in the rear" is not his cup of tea so I ask your help in soliciting His help. Many thanks.
