For those without the weather channel...
Milwaukee is predicted to receive 9 to 18 inches (of snow that is) between now and 3:00 pm on Wed.

WELCOME TO MILWAUKEE, Why don't you come in out of the cornstarch and dry your mucklucks by the celophane.....

Shoot, that means only three weeks to Tamiya America, and then Seattle the following month to get concourse cards ready. Aaaaghhhh !

Haven't posted in some time so I just spent the last 2 hours catching up on the TCS forum here. It seems to me like there are enough people here with ideas of how to run TCS "smoothly" each year and prepare for the next that for every person if he or she was a track owner that we could have a TCS season that would last 2 years with a race every weekend. So here is my two cents.

1. I don't work for Tamiya nor do I pay them.
2. Its up to THEM to figure it out
3. Sure, comments and feed back help
4. Bitching about it does not
5. Fred's the Man
6. Gary's the Man
7. Larry's the man (sorry Larry your still a rookie at the office so your at the bottom)
8. Its a F*%$ING HOBBY if you can't afford tires or the 3 hour drive to a TCS race then don't go.
9. We drove 7 hours one direction last year for the freemont race and had a shit load of fun
10. YES the Trophy girl from Nationals is still blowin up my phone, just check out my vivatar
11. HPI WHO?

.................................. ok I am over it

So has Mitchell re-opened for arriving flights yet?

I got out of Detroit just as they were shutting the runways down last night.

Hey Bill,
How long did it take you to get to Metro last night?

Yes, they re-opened this morning but it is going to take sometime to get all the flights back on schedule.

Rally car racing tonight at Trackside Woo Hoo

See you at the track

Luckily we made it out of the Sterling Heights area around 2:00pm, so it was the typical hour drive to Metro. The snow didn't really start falling there until 4:00pm, and my "rebooked" flight pushed out at 5:25pm. We didn't take off until after 7:00pm.

If I had waited for NorthWorst gate personnel to address my original flight delay as was recommended by the ticket counter, I would still be in Detroit! Gotta love their customer service. And oh yeah, they still tried charging $2 for a bag of pretzels!
