Minor request:

Early Session is sold out. That's good, we like that. But, Late Session is just over 50%. That will very likely change, and I won't be surprised if it sells out before the close of registration.

But...

There are people who "need" to run Early, and can't. (yeah, I know, they shouldn't have registered earlier)

More importantly, if we advertise this event (which I'm likely to do soon) to fill it up, all the noobs will end up in the Late Session. That creates a couple of distinct problems. 1) Lack of qualified course workers, which is never fun; and 2) Lack of instructors, which they will need.

SO...

If you're registered for the Early Session, and did so for no particular reason... if you could move to the Late Session... that would be awesome, and much appreciated! :salute: If you need to run Early, don't sweat it!

There are just 13 openings left in the Late Session. Early Session is sold out.

Could still used more experienced folks in the Late Session.

In a surprise to no one the new car is down and out. Looking for a co-drive, I don't care about points so I'm open to anything or car jumping.

I already handed my extra seat to Chris. But, I'm sure someone is up for the challenge.

It's just Philip. How fast could he be? :dunno:

Farm truck you need to rethink things. A "boat" is the hole in the water one throws money into. You aren't even up to "boat" yet. What will float Philip's boat? Lottery. I'll bet a lot of money on this one.

It's ready. Meeting with Lakeland Risk Management this morning. Thought I'd wait until after that, just in case.

:thumbwink: nice. I think we should have a small group of people on sweeping duty if it's like all past parking lots we've run on.
