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

So my question to you and others is, how does increasing the time a participant must devote on a Sunday to fulfill their run/work assignment lead to increased participation? I still have not heard the answer to that. By increasing the amount of runs they can take. Either as Marshall suggested, or i...

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

TO and X runs accounted for approximately 15% of gross revenue. I am all for improved efficiency. But burning off 15% or more of revenue in the process? Would it be possible for you to include your numbers on this one? How much for TO, X-runs, and Total Gross Revenue? and people could still do TO a...

Re: 2017 Event Run Time Statistics

When we used to have 250-300+ at events, we were more efficient. What isn't being taken into account is it adds stress to the core team. Thankfully we didn't have that turnout at all events. It also leaves little room for the car that blows up and you're down for 1/2 hour cleaning up. You end up cu...

That doesn't directly effect runs per hour, it just means fewer cars on course at a time. Release interval is where its at.

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: Event Format, going forward.

Well we no longer use only 600 numbers for new people as they are free to choose any number. But I thought we had added something about instructors being able to take an average for any event they instruct for the first group, limited to up to 3 events per year. That way they can still collect poin...

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

I think the format blows. I'd do everything I can to get individual people in and out as fast as possible (i.e. half days) AND take advantage of all the daylight you have. We're not getting any venue/insurance/equipment discounts for leaving at 2pm. No we offered free fun runs which were announced ...

Re: Event Format, going forward.

We have a group of veterans that drive to the limit( and more), our events help them so they can maintain their edge. Non points card holders are at the other end of the scale, we should be doing a better job of having assets available to decrease the effect of their learning curve. 100% !! I think...

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

What is the deal with the last poll option?: From my understanding, we generally cut runs to 3 when we have very high turnout. My understanding is rules for the half day format would be no different. Can you please share the math that shows how we would need to reduce to 3 runs with the December fo...

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

Let's ask if and how many people want to even take advantage of "fun runs", or was this taken on as an additional reward for a 13 event season? Randy has been trying to do fun runs any time he can which I think was Oct, Nov, and of course Dec. For December that question was also included ...

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

Those that responded to our polling were generally positive about the new format. Decsurvey.jpg Looking at the past three January events, we had 175, 180, and 175 actually run, an average of 177 entrants. As you can see, this is 60 more entries or 50% more. We have no reason to believe this will no...

Re: 2017 Event Run Time Statistics

Nice work Anthony. However, including change over in RPH distorts the info for me. I'd rather see the change over time separately, even if it's just a total for AM and PM. I think that is what is there. Total Run time from start to last car before lunch / number of runs taken = AM RPH Total Run tim...
