In the media
Seen on the new F1U.org web site , the organizers of the 3 World Cup contests to be held this summer in the Resort area of the Crimea are offering and a Christmas discount of 50% to early on-line registration. You still have time because the Russian or Eastern Orthodox Christams is not until Jan 7.
Also on the site are some well produced video of past Championship and World Cup events in the Ukraine.

Sloan's and Fab Feb Food Update
Got a call from Lois Sloan. Looks like Jay dodged the big one but ended up with a 5 way bypass. Doctor says there was no damage to the heart, but it's going to be awhile before Jay will be cooking up those rib-eyes.
For those of you not familiar with Jay and Lois, they're the really nice couple that have been providing us with on the field dining since we moved to Lost Hills. They have endured the Lost Hills duststorms, rain, wind and goofy flyers for over 20 years. Great, hard working, folks!
We're on our own for Fabulous February and maybe longer (Lois said, maybe 5 months). Wishing Jay a speedy recovery! You might want to send them a card.
