Re: Trailer work day Sunday June 11 @10:00

I've got to move everything out of the first floor of my house that day to get ready for new flooring. I will try to help if that goes fast.

Anybody want to help me move furniture?

Kirkey Aluminum Seats

I want to get rid of these seats to make some garage space. I know they're not in perfect shape, but if anyone is building a low-buck race car these will just about do. I got them from a stock-car racer. The first one is pretty narrow, 16 inches overall. Its a tight squeeze even for me, but that's k...

I'll be at home taking the safety course. I thought it was at 7:00, but that's eastern time, hopefully the kids won't be too unruly until Molly gets home. Also, it's 3 hours, hopefully they include snack breaks.

Re: SAfety Stewards for 2017

I'm signed up for the class. I believe it's true that to renew for 3 years you have to take a class. I think it's a double edged sword there, because last time I renewed it was for 3 years so then I promptly forgot all about it and let it expire. Although it's not that big a deal, I think I would ha...

The only part that's potentially worrying to me is "The county’s compliance officer is currently investigating whether the church hosts events that exceed its permitted activities." I'm not sure what it's permitted activities are, or whether this would affect us or not.

Re: Solo sound limits?

You can download decibel meters for smart phones, I don't think they're super accurate, but could be close enough for our purposes. If we wanted to buy one it seems like they can be had for less than $100. I think it's a good idea to have some control over the noise.

The way the system worked for the longest time was that the driver registered and was asked to put the sheet on the car. The tech guy then went to the car and either teched it or noted that it has the sticker and marked the registration form and took it from the car. He then turned it in to the tim...

I think if we want to get serious about this we can't take the driver's word for it. We should put the tech sheet on all the cars and have the tech guys look for the sticker. Guys when registering don't know what annual tech means, or have annual tech through another club, or whatever, and they just...

Good. I think part of the issue was having a plan to check during registration to make sure cars have been teched and not just take people's word for it. How is the registrar going to know a car needs to be able to check? I think that's why we were going to keep a list in addition to the stickers. T...
