Caustic talcum powder....that's one of the best descriptions yet. I took my "playafied" bike to my local bike shop after I got back from the event 2 years ago and I got a call from the guy working on it. He's like WTF did you get into on that bike?

I'm one of the hidden and have been for years.
DVD Burner, Badger / Miss Iso, and Bob are also ones who are hidden.
Beyond that...I've long wondered who else is using the hidden option. And I hope they allow it on the new board whenever it rolls out.

Well...I wasn't aware of the issues for Fire Performers but I can bring 15+ years of lobbying experience to the table to help the cause...the key will be to educate myself on the issue and see where / if I can be effective.

It's obvious he didn't read it or he would have realized it's a state of Nevada bill, not something from D.C.
