    Islip is very close

    If you can fly into Islip, if for some reason we can't get you, airport shuttle is very cheap.

    Thumbs up Jeagermeister

    Life is full of these small sacrifices Paul.....lol.

    Besides, I think racing 27s and Opens at this race will be an education in itself and if he wins, he can buy his own books for a while.

    Books?

    No way!!! That's skateboard and soda money! Maybe some new CD's or speaker money! Books are what you buy with Paul's money. I will talk to the kid at the race, make sure he understands. I think he will listen to me on this one!

    International Terrorist En Route to Barnburner

    Republished from The Oregonian, Feb 9, 2003:

    It has been disclosed from internal sources that the international slot car terrorist known as "Old Weird Herald" has been rumoured to be heading to an upcoming gathering described as "The Barnburner", scheduled for Feb. 18-22 somewhere on Long Island, NY. Upon further inquiries as to the nature of the event, it was described as "a bunch of grown-ups who play with toy cars".

    Due to the immense international tension surrounding "Old Weird Herald", it is understood that he now travels with a heavily armed entourage of personal body guards.



    "OWH", as the online slot car publication is refered to among the cult-like following of slot car racing fanatics who follow the online publication, is reported to be attending the Barnburner to provide what was refered to as "Almost Live" coverage of the event. It is not known, however, how the international slot car media will be recieving or reacting to the Old Weird Herald coverage of the event, due to a recently published boycott of the OWH web site, as well as it's reported lack of faith in the credibility of the American online publication's journalistic integrity.

    OWH's recent appearances include "Almost Dead" coverage of the Pacific NW AMCA racing, the Portland "Beaverfest" Warm-up Race, in Portland, OR, and the HO Slot Car event known as "The Fray in Ferndale" in Ferndale, Calif.

    OWH was last seen this weekend apparently in charge of a jammed-packed slot car raceway called "Raceway USA" in Portland, Oregon, entertaining Cub Scout Troops, hosting birthday parties, and race directing weekly races for even more of these "grown-ups (and kids) who play with toy cars".

    Paul "OWH" Kassens could not be reached online for further comments, as he was reportly last seen leaving the bustling raceway headed out for "Suds, pizza, and Beaver hunting", headed somewhere in the direction of Beaverton, Oregon. Witnesses recently reported having spotted his van in the vicinity of "Wankers Corner", just a few miles from Beaverton.

    Authorities and slot racers on Long Island have been warned of "OWH's" appearance, reportedly to be arriving at Islip McArthur airport sometime Thursday Feb 20. Local Long Island night clubs will also be staked out in anticipation of his arrival, as he is reported to also be celebrating his birthday, and has been rumoured to occassionally frequent such establishments.

    I don't think I want to know what Wankers Corner is

    but judging by the second photo...I think I know who I am partying with on Long Island
