    After the 1st event I had made some suggestions after listening to some frustrations from a lot of people. Sometimes being so open about things bites me in the a$$, but I'm the type of person that would rather nip stuff in the bud and get it taken care of rather than just talk about it. I hope I didn't offend anyone.

    The efforts to give some of those suggestions a shot at the Grissom event did not go unnoticed. I think you all did a great job and I think it sped some things up. Nice work and thank you!

    BTW....working timing and scoring with wind, noise, and 3 cars on course is a pain! I don't envy you guys. I want to pick dandilions next time! LOL

    Try announcing. . . I don't envy anyone there. All the bad stares you get from people when you make fun of their cars . . .

    fun times, thanks for the course that apparently suited me. Kinda killed my chances at consistancy, but got quite a bit faster from start to finish - and I guess I should have gone to third gear sooner, because my 5th run wasn't amazing, but using third must have got me somewhere to knock .4 sec off my best up to then.

    Also thanks for letting me even register. My morning had not been very good, and I was running very late. Needless to say the day got better.

    Nick and I got up early so we could come lend a hand. I need a longer piece of drywall next time. I'm too tall and fat to be bending over like that for 6000 cones LOL!

    Just to make sure his alarm doesn't not go off again on the 8th, I'm beating on Brian's door at 6am on the way to Terre Haute. May even buy one of those little airhorns and use the entire can right outside his door.

    Good idea! ...but it might have to be earlier than that. Terre Haute is a bit further than Grissom! ..unless you live on the faaaaaar west side.

    I do live on the west side and it takes less time to get to the Terre Haute airport...unless there is absolutely no traffic in Kokomo.

    Someone else is doing the course and I'm probably spending the night in Terre Haute because some of my family lives there, so shouldn't be an issue [;)]
