Happy New Years to everyone. I don’t have a resolution for the
occasion, and I’m ok with that. I usually forget them about two
months into the new year, or change them when something new catches
my fancy. If you plan on trying to party hearty tonight, try to
get a designated driver, or a cab. It’s a lot less hassle than
getting popped for drunk driving.
The Cordova Dragway Park is hosting the 9th Annual HangoverFest
tomorrow. The gates will open at 10:30 AM and racing will start
at 11. They’ll have chili, burgers off the grill, taco nachos and
more in the Interstate Batteries Cafe. If you need a little hair
of the dog, and you’re not racing, they’ll also have Bloody Mary’s.
If you just want to watch, spectators get in for $8, racers for $20.
If you want to learn more about it, go to the website.
A little later in the month is the first local indoor car show.

Sunday from 10 am to 3 pm. Tickets are $6 for adults with kids 6

are HyVee Stores and local speed shops. We usually pick ours up at
Auto Ron’s. Dave Palmer and 3D Sound will once again be the DJ.
There’s a couple of things going on locally in the early part of
the New Year. Comments on just about anything are always welcomee.
