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 ...

Is the google calendar going to be updated with the new date? Thanks!


FWIW, I've also got the CalClub Google calendar hooked into my personal calendar. Although I don't know how it gets updated.

Re: How to tell which group is running?

I'd probably prefer an old school analog method. Autocross is my escape from technology, and because my phone hooks up to my car, I typically turn it off at events. A flag is very simple and only requires a glance towards the motorhome to answer the question. The only problem is making sure somebody...

Hey Garet, I see you're signed up for the February event along with Owen. If you both are planning on joining SCCA, they have a family plan that you and Owen can use to save some money. To do it, call SCCA (get their 800 number off any page at SCCA.com) and ask for the membership department. Their w...

Re: Why Get Your Start at Autocross Sunday?

This should be a "sticky". This thread may be a bit outdated. We currently allow passengers on competition runs with no penalty. Bring a friend. Bring Tom Berry. It doesn't matter anymore. Our general sentiment is that locally we do want to keep the "fun factor" up as high as po...

At a minimum, I've been asking the newbies to stay after the Saturday morning driver's meetings and I've been trying to get them...

Re: Tires... what happened to them? Does it mean anything? What next?

I don't know that there's any preferred water sprayer brand, but the metal stem is a good call. You'll have to decide between a 1 Gal and a 2 Gal sprayer. A one gallon sprayer is perfectly adequate for 95% of events (and much lighter, etc.). But, your car has wider tires, so on hot practice days in ...

First of all, passengers (over 12) are welcome any time, even on your competition runs. For adult passengers, a passenger wristband (sign our passenger book and get a wrist band) is all that is required. For a minor (12-18) to ride in a car, you'll need to have a minor waiver completed and signed by...
