    Hey Danimal... (comin to ya from the new PDX AAFO.HQ here) BroGordon had the week tied up with a show normally scheduled for the week before RNO that fell during the races this year so's he's not gonna be there... On the rest of the crew, it'll be similar with at least one new face, or so I'm told.

    Who is that face?? I could tell ya, but then RARA'd have to kill me.

    I think the voice would be more important than the face

    and a fountain of knowlege to fill in the lulls with fascinating details would help to keep the paying crowd on the edge of their seats at R2K2 .........

    Actually..... it's sort of funny... Being the announcer at Reno *HAS* to be the single most "can't win" thankless situation for Air Show Announcers. I don't care who is there, if they were a fountain of knowledge, they'd be critiqued for talking too much, if they barely said anything, they'd be bashed by a different crowd for not bringing the touch of excitement.

    When Sandy was there for generations, there were those who loved the man (as I do, Sandy is a great guy) and there were those who always said "shutup and let's hear the races"

    When Gordon took the job, it was essentially the same, only now, he had to "fill the shoes" of the man who'd been at it forever.

    I like both men personally very well and would be VERY happy to see either or, even better, I'd like to see both there. The only "problem" I have with Gordon (just kidding Gordon) is every time I see him he sticks a mic in my face and I have to be "on" which... no matter how hard I try, I'm not very good at

    I'm going to miss Gordon this year a lot! I'd gotten used to seeing him PRS and the races. At PRS, there is a group of us who try to get together for a dinner and Gordon is about the funniest man you'll ever party with!

    God bless em all! And whoever steps into "The Shoes" this year!

    What?!?!? No way!?!?! How's that: Wanye--having trouble with words??? Heck, half the time you can't get him to shuddup! <just kidding Wanye! I think I owed you a jab for something or another anyway! >. Actually, it's been awhile since I we've chatted-- we should touch base re: PRS!
