Re: SK changes?

Not dead at all!! But isn't the current sk1 & sk2 more exciting?! In the few events I have joined sk1 you never know who might win. 10 + entries per event so far with a wide variety of cars. Class leaders in sk1 & 2 have been paying more attention. You never know who will win.! I love being in SK c...

Re: DC to AC Inverter Help

I tried FamVan and they really didn't know anything about inverters - don't install them or serve them. I find this so hard to believe. i must have called 50 places and no one knows what I'm talking about. The RV places know what they are in theory but don't know anything about them. I'm stunned. Ex...

DC to AC Inverter Help

I have an Exeltech inverter in my work van, dual channel 2KW. It really hasn't worked for years. So I thought I should get it fixed. HA I can't find a place that even knows what an inverter is. Some marine places know but they only deal with boats. And no one, no one, knows where I can get one repai...

Re: April course...kudos to Kurt!

I want to start looking at building up to Big Boy tools and tool chests, as opposed to the "Jr. tool set" I have now.

Re: Cal Club grid process could use tweaking...

My only time as an event chair I really pushed to have a nationals style grid. I love how that works for all the above stated reasons. But the person designated to lay it out didn't show up in time. So it was as it usually is. IF..... the course designer can rustle up enough help I think we'd all li...

Re: Nice course today, Tom Berry!

Loved the course. Kicked my arse but felt like I was flying the entire time. But do have to agree, not so much love for the finish. A woohoo finish would have made it a classic.

Still had a ton of fun.

I don't have a specific story but the one thing I'll always remember about her - besides all the mamma bear aspects and her love of the sport - is the way she could move mountains with just a look. If you made eye contact with her you knew everything you needed to know. Whether it was a warm greetin...

RIP, Renee. You will be missed. On perhaps my second event ever with SCCA she walked up to me, called me by name and then spelled it out loud correctly. I was floored. Right there I knew I had found a sport filled with great people. And Renee led the pack. And yet she was one of kind. And no one cou...
