It's Troy's fault. He just said 5 minutes. He didn't say "or 5 seconds by car".

May just need to take care of transportation from the airport to hotel and back. Hebiki told me not to worry about food that you guys have the sources covered. Something about a BBQ ?

Dan, Troy: check out SIR on Google Earth...... Looks like you guys were having a race on the day that the satellite passed over! Who's Mini Cooper is that parked outside the door? (white roof, with blue/white hood).

Sidebar: 20 yrs ago as a Navy pilot, most of the sat pics we had for strike planning weren't half as good as this.........amazing.

That was the Garber ride, but now that he's a "soccer mom" he has moved up to a big, compared to the mini, HUGE, 4 door pickup/suv/crossover something or other.

John Chin, Albert Langurica, and I are coming up for the Seattle race. What hotel is everyone staying at? Are there any kind of discount codes for the hotel?

Thanks,

James

Hi Doc,

We are getting in on Thursday. I am visiting a vendors facility that morning so good chance they can pick me up at the airport.

That is good news. I can think of 2 other people you need to put in your car. Mr Hicks, and Mr Aveytia

Doc, and the CoBroRa team, is staying @ the Townplace suites, just around the corner, Doug called them and they are offering a discount for the race. Mention Seattle Indoor Raceway

here is the website for the Hotel.

Yeah Bruce that was mine but as business needs took over I needed the truck. It is still in the family i sold it to my mother. Yep 58 and she loves boost.....That car made the NE Tacoma to SIR run in 17mins (25-30min regular)the AM of TCS. I think Juan is still cleaning out his shorts from that one. Troy's truck is the yellow banana there also.

Troy I talked to Juan tonight and it sounds like he is gonna miss this one.

I can pick up a few people from Sea-Tac my office is about 10mins away. We can arrange here or pm me to get my mobile. The Town Suites is about 10 ft away. A few have walked or we can help with a shuttle back and forth if some of you want to save on the rental car. If you do the Google Earth the Town Suites is the 2nd bldg due West of SIR after the Railroad tracks. You can see the pool.

I would like to see about a Past Champs race @ the SIR TCS. We did it back @ Burien with Brett, Dan and Peter.
Now we could have:
Fabulous Fred
Distiguised Doc
Downshifting Dan
Porno Pete
Blazing Brett
Tamiya Troy
Kwazy Keith
Magnificant Mark
Radiant Rodney?? (if someone knows how to get a hold of him)

I propose a run what ya brung (chassis would be open as Brett, and Peter are sponsored by someone other than Tamiya),
Tamiya Body
Maybe the Much More tire (would Keith donate a set or 2 to each of us)
How about a 19T motor?

Maybe we could even Convince Fred to bring a Jammin Jun! as well as we could try to get new poppy Amazing Andrew (Cartwright) to join us for a race??
Could be a full heat TCS - TRF


Any bites???
