Folks, we are approx. 2 weeks away and I only have 1 confirm via email.

If you would like to attend, please email me at axel_alvarez "at" hotmail "dot" com Use "Ice cream social" on the subject line of the email for spam filter reasons. If not, it will end up in the "trash/recycling bin" and I won't know you are coming. The head count will be used to figure out how much supplies my wife and I need to buy. All I need is your name and the number of people attending. Please do not reply to this post with attendance. I monitor way to many "boards" and it is a logistical problem taking info from multiple sources. Thank you.

Btw, gas is $3.99 per gal right now.

BTW,

If anyone is interested in the CPI ignition, there will be two Rockets at this event with the system installed. Just look us up and we will be happy to show it off.

Default Make money eat ice cream

Fuel at KTSP is $4.62 per gallon. Transit to KIYK is 3 gallons, lets say I keep a 5 gallon reserve, leaves space for 34 gallons in the mains and another 9 in the tips for a possible total of 43 gallons. Each gallon I save $0.80. So I can fly to KIYK and eat my own body weight in chocolate ice-cream and save $34.40. This has to be the greatest scam going.
