[DML] Re: Fun facts DCS Gettysburg



Ken,

For us over here in the "old world" those figures are truly massive!
Is it possible to estimate the number of owners vs the number of 
attendees?

BTW: Your remark on the fuel tank contents raise eyebrows.
A topped off tank does not fume and so will be safer than a quarter 
filled tank that can build up fume. Something to go over with the 
safety authorities?

Would love to come and take my D with me but that will need more 
funds than I can raise and afford.
Wish you a tremendously good show.
