Re: Tech volunteers for March 3/4

Annant: If you're interested in being Tech Chief in the future, there's a couple of things you need to study up on. While you don't need to be a tech expert, you are responsible for our first line of safety, so please take a moment to read (and re-read) the documents linked below: First of all read...

Re: 2018 Event Statistics

Not that it's going to be changed.... but... the problem actually starts by calling them "fun" runs. It implies a carefree jaunt of wild abandonment, i.e., conefest! Perhaps a more pointed statement about staying sane at the fun run drivers meeting is called for....... :think: :? :wave: :...

FS: BRIDE A.i.R Seat (RED)

Selling a practically brand new Bride AIR seat. Used for 1 event, plus about 10 days of driving. Very lightweight (15lbs.) Fits comfortably to a 34-35" waist. 32-33" waist might need side pads to tighten things up for autocross. Lower thigh bolsters make ingress and egress easier, yet stil...

Re: 2018 Event Statistics

FWIW, I was the first group starter and spaced the initial cars at 20 sec. Anthony came over and requested we close it to 17 seconds which I did for the rest of the group. When it was my turn to run, I noticed we were back to 20 seconds. First group we had perhaps four "hold the starts" l...

Re: 2018 Event Stastics

Awesome RPH! We are getting there!
With the reruns calculated in that averages to about 23.5s interval between each driver on course.

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. Average number of entries in 2017 was 155 with a medi...

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

the goal really isn't to pack up at noon or 1 pm. the goal is to stop running hugely inefficient events so that we can get more runs. I'd like to see us move in the direction of having a morning session and an afternoon session where everyone has the option to drive in both. it would probably requi...

Re: 2017 Event Run Time Statistics

Feedback from other regional organizers (Milwaukee, Wash DC, etc.) show that they typically are able to churn out anywhere from +950 to 1300 runs in a one day event. If we could reach close to the 1200 runs per day level of efficiency, we would be able to provide either 4 runs per driver up to 300 d...

Why? Events with low RPH would also indicate long work groups.
Focusing on increasing our RPH should benefit many aspects of the experience of our events in general.

Re: Cordless Impact

This Dewalt is my favorite. It has been used on countless wheel changes, other mechanical jobs, and general house use. The batteries last forever and the gun has enough torque to break free lugs so the whole wheel change process is quicker and takes less effort. https://www.amazon.com/DEWALT-DCF880H...

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

What is the deal with the last poll option?: "Cut back to three runs to reduce the overall time commitment and keep the December format" Was there a motion to move runs to 3 vs 4 for the half day format? I know I got 4 runs in December. From my understanding, we generally cut runs to 3 whe...

Re: 2017 Event Run Time Statistics

Great data!
Is there access to cone count data to compare Sept and Dec events, as they had the highest RPH? December had a high cone count which further slowed the run pace.

At this point, I hope we can direct the discussion on whether or not moving from the club model to the regional model is what we want to do. If we do move forth with the regional model, we can then start to go over our by-laws and implementation steps in greater detail and revise accordingly to bett...

Re: Everybody - Please read - Club consolidation

One of the reasons for the increase in E-Board hosted events was the cost of renting El Toro, which made profit sharing with the club minimal. Part of the incentive for a club to host an event was that they made money for their members. True about ET, but no denying that a good amount of ACS events...
