I am setting up 4 boxes (care packages) to send to them for Christmas, so something as little as a card thanking them for their service will do. Anything you would like to give will be sent to them!

Sat, Jan 9 - Winter Road Rally (Battle of the Builds), Hosted by DTP. Pro, Just Breathe Vapors, 12:00 pm, 1105 N King St, Hampton. Welcome to the first Road Rally of the year! Why is this rally called the Battle of the Builds? Because this year’s rally will be bigger, longer, have larger awards, and a bit more challenging that the ones before. This event will also emphasize a different approach to keep everyone always guessing what’s about to happen. Our road ralleys are NOT who can complete the course the fastest but rather they are who can complete the course (while following all local laws) in the time that we created it in. With that being said there may (or may not) be an award for the person who finished the course the fastest. Safety is our most important aspect, we will not be held liable for tickets, accidents, reckless driving, etc… Come out and have fun at the 2016’s first event Battle of the Builds!
