That was a typing slip up on my part and has been edited summarily to make the question more clear

I'm not Boomer but here it goes.
I think the room rates are going to be $89/night again. I'm pretty sure this is on the website.

RCs and such? How do we get it to Vegas? Fedex it a day or two before to the hotel?

Some people ship their stuff FedEx/UPS. Some check it as luggage. Just be prepared to answer some questions at the airport if you bring all of it along with you.

What is the normal cost of things... like Entry fees etc?

I can't remember the exact entry fee but I know they were higher than most races. But you have to remember, this is a very expensive race to run.

Pit area - how big, security (do we have to pack up each nite)?

Last year pits were really tight. But Boomer did say earlier that there will be more room this year. There was security in the track area every night. I didn't see anyone pack anything up and take it to their room the whole time. There's plenty of time between races to get your work done. And no need to worry about your equipment.

Practice times - is that scheduled by class or is it one big mass RC fest?

Practice is totally controlled by heat. You'll be practicing in the same heat and at the same time that you're going to qualify in.

Marshal duties?

Everyone turn marshals just like every other race.

I think you're right Chris. I think stock was $125 and the others were $100 as a first class and $50 as a second class. Something like that. And yeah, 2 buffets, a free body, some other stuff.

Is it September yet?
