Torpedo of the port bow my friend!!
To the 8-balls it has always been an unoffical 3-day event.
We have always traveled on Thursday to get there for some R/R and B/S on Friday.
We hit the hobby shops, help set up, hang out with types like Jim Butt, and generally harass the locals!!
Some of us run the subs as well on Friday.
Chris always sets aside rooms for Thursday night as well. Hopefully again this year. BD.
