    Lesson learned from my father:

    "Wash a car to get it clean, not to keep it clean"

    Think about it....

    I went to check it out this weekend, there was straw everywhere and it looks like some of the runoff room was built up...sometimes over a foot of grade.

    Couldn't tell if drainage was improved.

    Trust me, washing my car used to be fun. Now it's a chore (Hence I have all silver cars now). My car is green from pollen as I drove it to work all last week so, it needs a bath.

    Washing a car? You have time for that now that you're married? That's what rain is for

    Or, for the street vehicles, Mr Wash (the autox toy doesn't clear the rails)

    Is there still room to walk up on Saturday? I don't want to drive all the way out and not be able to run.

    Just a few notes from today's event ...

    First, let me say thanks to many of the volunteers! You guys are great. Thank you for all the support! There's no way to do it without volunteers. If you're not part of the autocross staff, please take a moment to say thank you to those who make it possible.

    Second, thank you to all the participants. I know that it was ROUGH today. Seriously. The rain limited attendance which really put us in a bad situation with the number of courseworkers we had. I know each of you had WAY too much area to cover.

    Third, I know there was some issues with the flow in the second half of the PM session. We are already working on a way to correct it. Half of the trouble came about due to particpants not numbering their cars properly. (This will be addressed in another thread soon and is a BIG issue.) The other half was due to courseworkers being spread WAY too thin (and the fact that many courseworkers had never worked a course before). In the future, we need to ensure that all "radio / flag" positions are worked by an experienced autocrossers.

    Overall, the event, in my opinion was another great success. Thank you to everyone who showed up despite the conditions. And thanks once again to my volunteer staff.

    I took a look at the results and it looks like someone didn't get a cone I nailed on my last run. I was driving the red Mazdaspeed3 and although I'd love to have my best time be 58.1xx, I found a small cone in my wheel well after that last run.

    This may double post, so I apologize:

    First, I'd like to thank everyone for the hard work that was put into making the event happen. This was my first autocross and really the first time I've driven my car hard (which showed with all of the understeer by going into corners too hot...). I'll definitely be bringing out my Mazdaspeed3 to more events in the near future!

    Second, I think there should be a correction on my last run at 58.1xx. There is not penalty listed, but I found a cone in my wheel well after that run, so I believe a 2 second penalty is in order.

    - Fred

    That event was a blast! Do you guys give out any trophies or awards of any sort?
