Default Pinball Alley

I need help.

I need pictures of full-size vehicles in Pinball Alley, or negotiating the Meridian Rd on the east end of Pinball Alley from the Motor Sport Area south to Pinball Alley for a project we are working on. If you are concerned about the nature or timing of the pictures, please send them via e-mail to vicepresident@glfwda.org.

No rush, as long as you send them by Wednesday this week

I might have some old pictures from the area, but I don't know which area you're referring to as "pinball alley".

Any date would be fine - any types of rigs would be fine too, but Shawn I think pics are going to work better than video.

I sent an e-mail with some.

You didn't say what the project is, but I'm hoping it involved working with the DNR to get a designation on these to make them fully legal. I've always worried about that on these trails.

I would imagine its something along those lines. Seeing as pinball alley is currently blocked off and closed.
