Did they take out the awnings and solar panels? God only hopes. Are they running in the crappy lot where we used to originally paddock? I hope that lot got resurfaced.

That is the same weekend for the SCCA National Tour at Crows Landing. If my class doesn't have the class minimum I'll plan for this event.

Actually we are in the lot adjacent to the solar panels AND it was sealed last year so there is NO gravel on the lot.

It is the same lot we ran the last time we were allowed there, but with a fresh slurry seal job and many of the smaller pot hole areas fixed. I am hopeful it will be significantly better condition than last time we were there.

Ralph and I were talking about this last weekend and he mentioned the parking lot being gravel free. He said there are two small areas he found during his visit that we would have to design the course to go around, but they were easily avoidable.

Iím sure you guys will have an awesome course either way.

Like said. Itís nice to have the college back again.

Everyone remember to check their helmets to make sure your in compliance.

And if you need any service Iíd make appointments now with Richie as abel is always booked out a few weeks.
