After reading the Rules again and again, do I understand correctly that there is no car width rule?

Thanks.

More big news for IIC attendees (racers and friends alike)!

This year, we were finally able to work out a deal on internet access with the hotel. As you know, it is about $20 a day to get internet in your room, and it does not work in the convention hall, which is really a bum deal.

We will have a LIMITED number of wireless access keys available for $50 each that will be good for the entire week, from Monday 9/24 through Sunday 9/30 in the convention hall. Each key will be good for ONE computer. The connection is not shared with the rest of the hotel, and thus is extremely, extremely fast.

The hall will be open each day from (roughly) 8 AM to 10 PM so you will have plenty of time to do whatever you need to do on the 'net. And unofficially, we figure you can sit outside the hall while it's closed and use your laptop if you need to.

These keys will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. You can pay as you register on Monday or Tuesday if you have one reserved. To reserve a key, please email Boomer at [email protected] and he will make sure you get one.

If you have any questions about the wireless net, Boomer or myself can probably answer them (although as everybody knows, I rarely read my PMs, so Boomer might be your best bet).

Shane, I had internet last year through my room and it worked for me in the convention hall as well. But as you said that was for $20 a day and the deal you guys worked out for this year will be hella better imo. So I am all up for this deal and hopefully others are too.

I do not know, there is a lot of metal in the hall. My cell phone reception (Verizon) was not that good last year.

Must have had better luck than me -- I could not get a signal in the hall from the room network at all. I also had a cell wireless card and that was very unreliable.

Hi Everyone,

As Shane had posted today, Great news for the internet. for those of you that have been to Vegas before, this is a wonderful deal. $50 for 7 days is and unheard of deal. Last year we had so many people who wanted the net, but we could not work out any special price. Thankfully we are all set this year. If you are interested, let Boomer know so we can get you on the list. unfortunatly we will not be able to get enough codes for everyone, so it is a first come first serve basis.

Now a bit about the week of the IIC.
First and formost. POKER ROOM IS OPEN 24 HOURS. Your set BARRY.

Monday- Hobbyshop will be open, we are shooting for Noon, it will depend on what time they will allow us access to the hall. We have 6am in our contract, but as we learned last year, that may not happen. so we need everyone to be a bit flexible on this. But it will be open.

Tuesday Registration desk will open at Noon. This is where you will check in, Verify Freq, Transponder Number ect. ect. We will give you your goodie bags with all the free swag and stufffffff just for participating in the IIC along with your event shirts.

The pits will open Tuesday at 4pm-6pm for setup. You will be able to bring your gear in and set it up. This will stop the early morning rush on Wed morning.

THIS NEXT THING NEEDS TO BE UNDERSTOOD, THUS THE CAPS!!!!
AFTER LAST YEARS EVENT, WE ONLY HAD 1 BLACK EYE THROUGHOUT THE ENITRE EVENT. A COUPLE OF MORNINGS WE HAD A FEW OF OUR RACERS GET A BIT LOUD WITH THE SECURITY GUYS WORKING THE DOORS. AFTER A WEEK AT THE HOTEL AND ALL THE PEOPLE THAT CAME AND WENT AND THE EVENT WE PUT ON. THE ONLY COMPLAINT THE HOTEL HAD WAS THIS INCIDENT. EVEN THIS WEEK WHEN I WAS ON THE PHONE WITH THEM, IT WAS BROUGHT UP AGAIN. NOW I KNOW IT TAKES 2 TO DANCE, BUT IT WAS STILL OUR PROBLEM AND IT CANNOT HAPPEN AGAIN.

SO EVERYONE LISTEN UP. THE DOORS TO THE HALL WEDNESDAY THRU SUNDAY WILL NOT OPEN UNTILL 6AM. DO NOT TRY AND GET IT EARLY!!!!! DO NOT TELL STORIES LIKE YOU NEED SPECIAL ACCESS!!! IF WE HAVE PROBLEMS AGAIN, IT WILL BE OUR LAST TIME HERE. AND IF YOU ARE THE ONE CAUSING PROBLEMS, YOU WILL SIT IN THE BLEACHERS WATCHING THE IIC, BECAUSE YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO RACE. I HOPE EVERYONE UNDERSTANDS HOW BIG OF A DEAL THIS IS. THIS WAS THE ONLY!!!!! PROBLEM WE HAD LAST YEAR, BUT IT WAS SOMETHING THAT ALL OF MANAGEMENT WAS MADE AWARE OF. cap lock off.

We will open each day at 6am.
We will have open practice from 6am -645am. first come first serve. When it gets busy, we will run 2 min runs. Race 1 will start at 7am each day. Not 7:02
7am that means if you are in race 1 you need to be in tech at 650am.

Wed. 2 rounds practice. Thurs. 2 rounds of practice both days by heats.
Fri and Sat. 2 rounds each day. Resort after Fri. and before round 4 Sat.


We will have the tenative heats posted on INTCHAMPS.COM next week. Remember these are tenative and are HIGHLY I repeat HIGHLY subject to change!

Doug from RCScoring pro will again be providing all the scoring for the IIC and he will have his bar code scanner set up for individual printouts of your practice runs.

We will be again providing the absolute best internet coverage of any event in the history of our industry with lots of live video coverage and indepth interviews with the top drivers from around the world. All of this live coverage and interviews will be on WWW.IIC-LIVE.COM

For those of you making the trip to Vegas, hang on. We are going to have a blast. For those of you not able to join us follow along online and join us for the ride. It is going to rock.

Let us know if you have any questions and I will have a more detailed schedule posted next week.


Thanks
Scotty

You should have seen that little freak with the glasses in there. He was crying and screaming over and over into his phone "can you hear me now??" He finally slammed his phone on the floor. Smashed it into a million pieces.
I had to call security.
