    That doesn't look good at all. Hopefully they will rebuild, but with South Dakota winter they won't be able to start until the spring which doesn't leave a whole lot of time.

     Latest news flash....police are seeking information on the where-abouts of a biker called Woody in connection with this fire and another bar in New Mexico owned by local biker club The Del Fuegos......

    All reports say they are still taking camping reservations for the cabins, but are not sure if or when they will rebuild. He currently has all his money and assets tied up in his home town in Tennessee. Angie basically says for people to quit worrying about it because he needs to spend time with his new baby and not the old one...
    By the way. it was a pinched cord that set off cardboard boxes and the distillery fueled it.

    Bet she'll be complaining when there is not so much $$$$$$$ flowing in without the FTS

    Michael Ballard's net worth is just under $6 million now. I think with a few good investments they'll be fine with or without the Throttle.

    I believe he will rebuild, it will just be a long, slow process.

    Have you seen the way that place was put together? Hell with a truck load of wood and a few friends we could have that thing back up in a month :-)

    Just read that we now have to wait for the end of this seasons Full Throttle Saloon for the announcement of whether or not they are going to rebuild the saloon - it will be announced after the last episode of the season. Like anyone thought they wouldn't either rebuild themselves or sell to someone who would rebuild. Besides couldn't the TV show producer just rebuild it and call it 'set' expense.
