Schweiss Promotion!

Steve Sanderson managed to con some shirts, a jacket and hats from Schweiss Door Company. He handed them out at the K-Club this past Monday to Schweiss door owners. If you're a Schweiss door owner, see Steve he might have a shirt or hat left.

O.K. time to call

Update: Fired off e-mail to Hydroswing about Schweiss giving shirts, hats and jackets to Schweiss owners. Got a call today from Hydroswing saying that they will not be out done. They are sending goodies to all Hydroswing owners at Whiteplains.
Thanks Hydroswing!

New Hanger Door Arrives

Steve Sanderson has some pictures he would like to share with us. I added them to Photoshow for display below. Enjoy!

Let It Snow!

Today (1-20-2009) was a snow day at Whiteplains. While it is not uncommon to get snow from time to time, today's snow was a good inch. While it didn't last, I was able to get a few shots around Whiteplains before it melted. Enjoy.
