    How are we on number of instructors? A friend of mine was interested if you could use another. He is easily as good of a driver as I am with a couple more years of experince.

    What are the helmet requirments? Will a DOT be good enough or do they require a SA?

    DOT helmets are a no-go. Must be Snell M or SA rated within the last three revisions.

    Directly from the BMWCCA Operations Manual:

    Example: If the current standard is Snell 2010, then helmets meeting either Snell 2010 or the prior 2005 standard are always allowed. In addition, Snell 2000 helmets may be used through the grace period until the end of calendar 2011.

    I had a good time...stinks that time became an issue. I tried to jump in and make one run at the end, but was rewarded with my seat breaking....oh well. I hope to make it down on the 19th.

    Also, I saw a whole bunch of people snapping pictures. Is there any flickr links, etc for the club?

    Students,

    Thank you for attending our school yesterday. It's always a great time watching and seeing how much you learn and develop during a single day. Most went from bad to very capable I especially liked all the front tire roasting mini's out there. Make sure to add all our events to your calendar - we have two other fantastic, open lots that we will be using the rest of the year. Also, when coming to our normal events, feel free to ask for ride along with instructors. I highly suggest that your first event out, you register for the PM session, but arrive early enough for the second half of the AM session. A good majority of our instructor core group runs the second half of the AM session at our events. Ask for a ride along (my passenger seat sometimes has a waiting list, but I'm always accommodating).

    Instructors,

    Thanks x 1,000,000. It was nice to see so many out, even though one of you had the nerve to bring a Prius (Booger).

    Committee,

    Great job guys and thanks again for organizing. I think it was an excellent school. And the chick-fil-a was very tasty.
