I was wondering that myself!

I don't get vacation (contractor) and I'm stuck with a wedding I can't miss. I'd like to find a race between IIC and 'birds to attend this year. Something new.

Definitely on the short list. I'd like to see if there's any Grandslam races this year that are heavily attended.

Halloween race is probably the best of the Grandslam races and has the highest attendance. I've always wanted to attend this race but my job keeps getting in the way.

I can't find a single nice thing to say about scheduling races that conflict with family holidays.

Trying my best to make the Halloween Classic this year... just not sure if it will pan out financially after Vegas. Keeping my fingers crossed, though.

We've been discussing keeping the layout we have up currently (same as MHIC) up since it's got such good grip, and we've got a lot of history to compare our times to.

Would that impact anybody's desire to come out and practice? It's got some similarities to the IIC layout. We kinda feel like the grip would make for more meaningful practice. A new layout might groove up nicely too, but this one is certainly feeling great.

Alright guys, we've decided to keep the same layout up that we're using now, and that was originally put in place for MHIC. This should ensure that we have the most possible traction during the practice weekend, which many of us feel is very important for big race preparation.

I'm hearing rumors of some guys coming out from Cali. Let us know if you plan to attend. Thanks again for the support.

Wish I had the time/budget to join in on the fun

Fred, you'll have syn's Aweso as your baseline up there

It looks ridiculous on that tight layout !
