Anyone heard from Many944s?

Haven't seen any posts from Nick in a year. He also hasn't updated his website in a year. Did he just fall off the face of the Earth? Has anyone heard from him?

I have not heard from him in a while and have thought about calling him. I do know he was getting heavy into trackside support. He might be so busy he has no time to visit Pelican.

Haven't seen him either. I was wondering if he is going to have a clinic in Aug. Haven't seen you guys in a while.

I also believe about 9 months ago he had some employee difficulties that resulting in him doing a bunch of housecleaning and becoming very mistrustful of hiring people.

Very sorry to hear that. I wonder what happened? (Not that it's your place to tell me. Nick can tell me himself if he wants to.)

It's true... I'm still alive, just very busy with supporting the race series and NEVER have a chance to get online.

Also true: I had several staffing issues that caused multiple issues, several of which unfortunately I am still working through almost a year later

The web page is being updated, and the best email to get ahold of me is on the page. Hopefully work load will lighten up as I reluctantly hire more staff. It has become difficult as a small shop owner to find reliable staff!

I am currently planning on re-starting the annual August get-together. It all really depends on how work load looks. I miss being a helping hand to this community, hopefully with a quality staff, I can again become the helping hand I once was!
