Well, all in all Sheri outing to her work function with Bob and "Al" went rather well. Sheri probably cheated a little and did not leave much room for Bob and "Al" to interact with her co-workers, just some quick introductions. although they had never been to a race track, "Al" was sure he had been there before. :) Rather then focus on what might go wrong, Sheri decided to focus on taking photographs instead.
It worked out well :)
