  1. Yesterday,

    I replied back to see if you had a record book published for the 2018 season (2 summers ago)?

    Any way I can buy a few if yes?

    • Hello Tom, I added a comment yesterday to your question- this is what I wrote: “Hello Tom, the 2019 is the first one released at the end of a VBL season. I also wrote one for 2015 (just last spring) to see if it was possible, but at this time, there isn’t one for 2018. Sorry!”
