Re: 2017 Event Run Time Statistics

Remember on the December event we seemed to me to be doing really well and then the Generator problems slowed the 4th heat way way down. I had the kids down there about 45 minutes early because I hadn't anticipated the 4th taking so long compared to the first three heats. I didn't compare number of ...

Re: Event Format, going forward.

600 numbers wasn't just "noobs". It was ANY non-points cardholder. You could have a visiting SCCA Driver of Eminence given a 600 number.

Re: Membership Poll...How long is too long?

If you weren't an event official, a junior, a junior parent, or interested in fun runs, then half of you were free to leave after the 3rd heat and half of you were free to leave after the 4th heat. I don't care how you do it. Just figure out a way to do it better because we haven't been executing we...

Re: Membership Poll...How long is too long?

Give it a rest George.... Gesh.....


And even mentioning 3 runs in a dying region with consistently less than 125 entrants should immediately lead to some dire punishment like being forced to run your CM car covered in I'mWithHer bumper stickers.

Re: When do Juniors run on Sunday?

Understand please that I'm not being difficult because of convenience or preference. I'm trying to follow a national rulebook. We didn't have any inexperienced so it made this easy. Inexperienced karters require two course walks. It's been routinely suggested that we can speed up the process by doin...

When do Juniors run on Sunday?

Pardon me if I'm a little hostile and frustrated.... But when are Juniors supposed to run on Sunday? Are you sure? Really really sure? Glad we have a small field. I don't know when the four entered think they are running. I suspect in the afternoon. Although I've been telling people the morning. I t...

Re: December Events Open for Registration - New Format for Sunday Championship

I really don't think the cashless is any big deal. In the very rare situation where a person only has cash at the event and no card, I'm sure we can find somebody willing to take cash and whip out a card. Find me. I'll take your cash and use my wife's card. ;)

Re: December Events Open for Registration - New Format for Sunday Championship

I've done announcer AND starter before at the same time. Can be done either with wireless mic at the starting line or by telling the driver when to go over the PA from inside where you can set reset the clocks if needed.

Re: December Events Open for Registration - New Format for Sunday Championship

Back to the SSS perspective. No course workers means ONE car on course at a time. No exceptions. And again I point out, anytime your course is not fully staffed you need somebody who has access to a vehicle or scooter or something who can get a fire bottle out for an incident. We can, and have done ...

Re: December Events Open for Registration - New Format for Sunday Championship

Anytime you run without on course workers, we should have a plan in place for a vehicle/scooter that can quickly get a fire bottle out to an on course incident.

First at the moment, but Steve Ekstrand had some other ideas that may work to better. I'll talk again with him this weekend. His other Idea was to put them in a separate grid just like we do now by the motorhome and have them run like nationals with time inbetween for gearing changes and discussion...

He would need all the equipment. We aren't like an indoor karting place where everything is provided. I'd suggest coming out to watch and learning more about what is involved. I'd be happy to answer any questions here though.

2016 or 2017. Robert wrote a letter to the SEB supporting the idea when he was 11 (and 64"). They passed it, but it didn't go into effect until he was already 12.
