As is probably apparent by now, and should have been acknowledged by me long ago, there is no way that I can administer the GPd2015 proxy this fall.
While my passion for our hobby has "survived" a new romance with a wonderful woman, the combination of health problems and the unexpected challenge of moving to a new apartment during the past 30 days have thrown a monkey wrench into my planning skills, such as they are.
I haven't been on the Forum in weeks, and I regret that. I have fees in my Paypal account from several of you, and those will be returned within the next week.
We had great events the past two years, and I'm not happy that we won't have this event before the end of 2015, but I think it is best to plan for next year rather than to do a poor job. The cars that have been built are very special, and this event deserves the attention of an organizer who isn't distracted.
I do hope you all will continue with your builds and that we can have an event in 2016 that will top the GPd2014.
Again, I'm sorry for not getting this organized as expected.
Mark and I had a very pleasant "catching up" phone call yesterday evening and I can confirm that his move to a new apartment is complete apart from opening all his slot car storage boxes. We talked about the proxy and how we were looking forward to it returning in 2016 from its sabbatical with some very nice cars being built for it. I promised him that even though I haven't been in my model-making room for months I would finish my McLaren M4B for the series.
