It’s now July, and the 4th of July (Independence Day) is upon us. We are beginning the second half of the year 2020. We’ve made it through a great many hurdles together, and we are still going strong. Last month had a very important centerfold, which we hope each of you had an opportunity to look over. We’ve had several calls already on it. Statements like, “If it’s really going to happen, I’ll be there, even if it has to be in a space- suit!” “My husband wants to come, so I’ve got to do the calling. He wants to know if he can get CEU classes for credits there. He said he’s tired of hearing the same old thing every time and figures this would be the place to come.” Another one, when we asked if they planned on exhibiting said, “That’s the plan, and we are completing the paperwork this afternoon.” When asked if they were bringing a rig, the answer again was, “That’s the plan. We are tired of not going anywhere and are looking forward to it.” One might suggest, if you are considering coming, make your plans NOW . Send in your paperwork NOW . We want to be sure we have everything lined up for you to have one great time. Don’t forget to bring the ladies. They have been waiting a while to get out and enjoy themselves too. We have a great lineup for them to choose from. Now down to some additional information on the event. With the uncertainty of exactly how much distance is going to be required, if there even will be a requirement come the end of October, among other questions in your mind at this point in time, we want to clear up a few thousand of those questions. This month’s centerfold has a couple sketches of the anticipated layout including spacing requirements both inside the lobby, theatre, as well as outside for those great exhibits, and with regards to restaurant capacities and theatre seating. The WWDR Team is taking care to not only show you a great time at this the FIRST WorldWide DownHome DrillFest™ , but to also let you know just how important you are to us.
