If everyone's busy we could just do a practice night. Keep the communication going.

Ill help Gentry get everything ready but I don't know how to work the computer or announce. I thought Nasty posted he was coming to race Saturday? We need to get something figured out cause I'm hearing there will be a good turnout. I hope you can make it to help Joe.

I agree James,

i'm sure we can live without an announcer. set up the computer for ifmar starts on an open loop, let it count the heats, we would need to call the beginning of the mains and some time updates most likely.

maybe Kenny can chime in on if that would work, click the mouse and let the timer loose, and with those speakers, if we hook the computer/timing up to the sound system it should be able to make its beeps and stuff, "really technical sounding I know".

where there is a will there is a way, and i'm not running no electric cars so.....

Ya guys, it sounds like we will have more than enough cars out there. I wouldn't mind if we just had someone announcing times and then printing the results. Would actually be pretty cool to have no idea where you finish until after the race.

I know the code to the lock on the genny, asked kenny for the keys already, unless he gives them to Travis, and can get the whole place up n running.

We need to make sure there is fuel in the genny, water in the truck and gas for the water pump.

Sign ups are easy, entering the info into and operating the computer program will be interesting though!

Oh boy...

Honestly, it would be a great opportunity for watered, controlled practice. Turn the loop on, set up sound, it calls lap times. Get 4 guys at a time on the track, 4 guys marshalling, go in a rotation. Think about it. Schedule watering every hour.
