Martinsville- want to go?

13 posts in this topic

Hey all-

I purchased four sets of tickets for Martinsville this weekend, for both truck and cup races. My mother-in-law passed away this morning, so we will not be going. If anyone would be interested, give me a holler. We were planning on staying with a cousin out there, so there are no accomodations to transfer.

Four tickets, Blue Ridge Grandstand, Section K Row 66. Directly in front of the pits, top row.

If I could get half price for them, that would be great.

I hope this is an okay place to put this.

Thanks, guys. My mother in law will be missed. We were close to my in-laws. Our kids grew up with their grandparents either just across the section, or just up the road in town after they retired.

Figures that she would pass away right when we were supposed to be leaving for a race weekend. She was more of a Twins fan than NASCAR fan. smile

Sorry to hear about your MIL.

I can't use the tickets, but am sorry to hear about your mother-in law. Thoughts and prayers to you and your family.

Thanks again, guys. My hubby came up with a solution for the tickets. Since the relative we were going to stay with cannot make it to the funeral, we are overnighting him the tickets.

We have a ton of family coming in from all over, and have been sharing in all the good memories of my mother in law. She was confined to a wheelchair due to the progressive form of MS, and for the last 10 years she couldn't even feed herself. She was admitted to a nursing home nine years ago at the age of 59. She kept a positive attitude throughout her life, and was a great influence on all who came in contact with her. We all know she is in a better place, and for that we rejoice.

Oh well. At least I didn't do too bad at picking my drivers for this week.

    • I agree.   I have said in the past, i learn to be a better hunter when they aren't easy.  Turkeys seem to become an obsession if you allow yourself to let them get in your blood! Love the chase.
    • ya but its fun! It was nice getting out i am learning alot watching them and being out there gets me more experience since i shot mine this year after being out a total of probably 6 hours for two days
    • Frustrating buggers aren't they!
    • well gobbled like crazy in the morning finally got a hen to come out she came 1 foot away from blind. Then 4 more came behind her 2 toms and 2 hens then the hens went back to the woods and one tom followed the other tom stayed in the open strutting back and forth just out of range then a crane came and he strutted at that then a goose came and he strutted at that they all came out just out of range and cut to our side. They sat there strutting at each other and couldn't get them to come in. One of them came back started walking to our decoys once again just out of range. Uncle tried to get out and go through the dirt bike track he's currently laying on top a jump within 60 yards of them no other options to sneak he chose the wrong way to go should have crawled against the burn... Man these buggers suck going to change blind spots next time know where they roost and see where they strut on the property. should of had a fan decoy out I bet that would have drawn them in
    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..and read local Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!    
    • Running and gunning!   Congrats!
