David Vuillemin says "Thanks, everyone"Friday, February 10, 2006 | 10:27 AM
Here's a note that David Vuillemin asked us to pass along:
I want to thank everyone who responded so quickly to the mechanic position. The response was overwhelming! I apologize if I cannot respond to every single email because there was well over 100 but I have spent time going thru them. There were many very qualified applicants who seemed like they would do a great job but unfortunately I can only choose one guy.
We did not have time to pick a mechanic for this weekend because it was just to short of notice. Billy Bell, who has worked with the team in the past, has offered to help me out for the weekend until we can pick a permanent guy. We have a few people coming down to San Diego to meet with us and check out our program and hopefully we can work something out with one of them. I will let you all know what we decide.
For those of you who did not get picked all hope is not lost as a couple team are also looking for someone and I have forwarded all the responses I got over to them.
Thanks again to everyone who sent me a message. I really appreciate all the offers!
Good Luck to everyone.
