July  2002


            We want to take this time to wish all that are going to the Unified Nationals the very best.  This year may well be one of the best Nationals ever. What with the AAA holding their World in Egypt and the economy being so bad, it looks like a lot of AAA pullers will be attending the Unified this year.  Hoping to qualify for the Worldís in Illinois in November.
