Hey Mel,

I would like to set the course on Saturday morning. They do stuff there on Friday nights and setting the course would get in the way I think. So Sat morning is fine.

So we just need to get the van there Friday night and I can take care of the rest. I can also help move the van from Autoworks on Friday if we can get someone else to chip in.

I am not sure if I will be able to make it this weekend, probably shouldn't count on me for timing, just in case.

Yes, I have both. I need to put the radios on the charger (will do that tonight), but I can either drop them off with someone, or they can pick them up from me.

Another great event thanks to everyone's hard work. While I didn't have a comparison time from last year, it was fun to watch how much everyone had improved since last year, some racers started out beating their last years time and improved from there. Guessing your best time is tough. Congrats to Sarah, Jonathan, and Russ.

Rose....meant to ask, but didn't want to be impolite---did you enjoy starring at my tail lights for 10 runs?....no wait, it was not to be polite, it was to ask you the ? on this more public venue...I told Kellie I was sorry for all the grumbling from you she was going to have to listen to on your way home last night, but she said she was used to it and good at ignoring it...

So did I! Great event and good idea about the index event. And congrats Russ on winning the glass full of money. I would have had it with my .018 off of my guessed time but then I had to go and drop another second off. I beat my guessed time by a full second! Maybe I need to be more ambitious in the future. It was kinda like shooting myself in the foot with speed. Joe did the same thing!

I could have asked Ron the same ? as Rose...but I already knew the answer from the palpable frustration I observed from him....it has been a long time (read years) since I bested those two...and to only be .6 behind the Geekman---certainly will have me coming back for more of this

Mel, I just got off the phone from a good friend of mine from back in Chicago...... his name is Bruno Capone. He's coming out to Montana to see me........... and is stopping by your place on the way....... :twisted:

Congratulations Mel on a well deserved victory. I have no problem being bested by someone as gracious and humble in winning the day. I won't even make excuses for my performance because that might diminish your hard won day. You know, things like: I was racing on worn tires that I think are getting heat cycled out, riders most of the day, feeling a little dehydrated, these courses are tough for me to get my head around, my coach was not happy with my driving. That would not be cool. So congratulations Mel! :D

It is great to hear how moved you are by the whole event! I failed to mention that I learned that just because you over drive a course doesn't mean you will go faster. Maybe the wet eyes are from allergies.
