What's Happening in Louisville?
 
Today is January 3rd, and I would imagine that folks are starting to arrive at the 2007 Derby City Classic in Louisville, Kentucky.

I heard that the weather in Louisville is going to be in the 50's and 60's, which is quite nice for this time of year.

So anyone who has access to a computer, inquiring minds gotta know what's happening. Who's matching up? Who are the first to arrive?

Thanks in advance to any AzB-ers who can provide some info!:)

Is this confirmation that you all are not going to be able to attend this year?

I'm sure a lot of AZ'ers were hoping you guys could make it.

I am not going to be able to make it because of work-related activities this week. We were hoping that, if time allowed, we could make the 12-hour drive and attend for a few days. Keith's best friend is going to be there, from what I have been told.

There will be no shortage of action there, and I will enjoy reading all about it. Hopefully, some kind souls will post up some trip reports. I know Diana Hoppe will be there snapping pictures, which is one of my favorite treats. She is absolutely the BEST!

I have not spoken to RL in a while but I was hoping he was still planning on making the trip.

Hope you get to slide down for a few days.

Yep. Me, too! :)

BTW, there's a full moon tonight! Funny things happen when there's a full moon, and I'd imagine that on the eve of opening night at the DCC, there will be non-stop excitement. :cool:

I remember my first DCC experience. We drove through the ice-covered mountains of West Virginia, 12 long hours, finally arriving in good old Louisville. Rolling into the parking lot, we entered the HUGE lobby of the Executive West Hotel. I mean, it was BIG. The furnishings were representative of the Bluegrass State, lots of wood trimmings, giving it kind of a warm and cozy feel. :p

When we checked into our room, the first thing I set my eyes on was that rocking chair. I thought, I'm going to like it around these parts, but I never did get to set a spell in that rocking chair. Matter of fact, the whole week, I'd be surprised if I got 10 hours of sleep. :o

Who can stay in their room when they're attending the DCC!? Watching the various players from around the world rolling in the front lobby opening night, it was like a Who's Who in pool. This is the pool mecca of the year. Some folks make this their once-a-year event and wouldn't miss it for anything. :)

So, even though I'm sitting here at my computer, procrastinating my workload here at home, I am getting a little anxious to read all about it! :D

Tonight, they'll be coming in by the droves! I'm kind of thinking there will be some noteworthy happenings on the eve of the DCC. At least I hope so! :D

What kind of action goes on at the other hotel? I never went over there last year. I'm staying there this year.

Great news for us smokers, it was much colder last year. Of course the year before, I was smoking in the landing with Tony Stewart, which was kind of cool.

Get your horse out of the stable and get on over to Louisville. :rolleyes:
