Hello race fans! Countdown is on for the 16th annual Snowbirds in sunny Orlando, Florida January 26th-31st, 2010. Over 200 fans on Facebook now, and I try to update that daily with stuff... Check out the race site and enjoy the 1000 of so pictures and videos from last year:

Check out the newer 2010 Snowbird page:
http://www.snowbirdnationals.com

Bookmark it if you can, as I will be announcing some great news, additions, information, and more almost daily as the race approaches. I also added a Facebook fan box, as I try and post something daily there (and Twitter too). Rooms are filling up faster than last year and the hotel is anxious for our return. The Radisson has added some new renovations and is simply a great place to race. Also getting great emails and interest from around the world from new and old Snowbird race fans coming this year. Looking forward to another great race week!!! Much more to come!

Got some exciting race news I can't announce for a few weeks for the 2010 Snowbirds... so definitely stay tuned for that!

I Will be announcing something special this week I am very pleased about... watch for it here and on our site and Facebook...

320 fans on FB now and climbing. Bookmark it or our race page as almost daily I am posting something for the Snowbirds. Lots of fun! Getting so much response this year from around the world, 2010 is going to be awesome.

Don't forget the Monday night pre-race poolside 'ROCKIN' party and gold tournament on Monday too - more to come on this.

Classes will be announced in September and Entry form will be out in November!! Make your hotel reservations now!!! Everyone will get a FREE room upgrade to a deluxe room if you reserve by the end of the month. And make sure you order your rooms through the hotel. If not you will get hit with a 9 dollar a night safe and resort fee everyone else gets. Hotel info is on our race site. Flip flops and TIKI lights at night... yes!

Hello race fans...

HOT OF THE PRESS!!!!

Check out 'CARPET RACERS: A CRASH COURSE'. Their movie trailier is on-line now, along with some awesome video footage of more racing and behind the scenes stuff on 'what we do'. Sit back and enjoy. Totally fantastic coverage! What a wonderful job Jay and Mike, and all that are involved. See some great stuff from the Snowbirds on the video and many racers and fans! Can't wait to see the whole film soon.

This is very exciting to me as Mike Rooney and his crew have been covering the Snowbirds each year have have been here through it all.

Here is Mike way back in 2005/2006 filming for this new movie:



And I am sure everyone has a memory of Jay with his camera 'in your face' the past few years LOL. He is so much fun!
