Yes Sir, I'll take a Bacon Champ Burger Sir! (and might pay a little extra to get chili/cheese fries too!)

I can get down to Casa de Turbos tomorrow on my way there and pick-up the canopy, as well as convoy with any others who want to meet there.
I'm also down for Checkers.
I had a line on a helmet. David had offered my his some time back, but I have not been able to heard back from him this week. Jamie and I may be out of luck.

Please don't start posting your orders! Just wanted to have everyone think about it, know what the menu was, so we don't have to spend 15 minutes tomorrow farting around. :)

D: If you don't mind stopping in that would be great, that'll let me get out there a touch earlier and scope things out. Also, I let Brian know that we will need loaner helmets.

If I can find my helmet, I'll give it to one of the guys for tomorrow. Bring a role of paper towels so you can line the helmet before you use it.

Glad everyone one had fun, thats why we do it. Sorry lunch was such a long process, and it effected the amount of time we got to run at the end of the day. We'll definitely work out the kinks in that part of the day for next time. At this point we're probably going to be doing a second class in late August.

Thanks to Andy for helping with the lunch run, and to Darrin who didn't get any seat time but ran his butt off on the cones just as hard as anyone else.

I got home and was so exhausted I just flopped down in the bed, completely covered in grim, and slept for two hours. :)

It always amazes me the group of people that have found each other here, and events like this show it. Great time, thanks to everyone for making it!

i'd personally like to thank j for the juggling act of a lunch run, brian and mike for being fantastic instructors, and jamie for not hitting any cones, giving me quite the needed break after a certain kleen person's runs ;).

i learned a lot about my car's handling characteristics when pushed, and the suspension/tire limits, and it's always fun to be driving like a bat out of hell. sign me up for the next one. i didn't wanna leave yesterday!! :drive: :ya:

Fantastic time, with fantastic people.

I can't say enough good things about Brian, Mike, Father and co.

And a *huge* tip of the hat to Jas - You made this event everything it was. :pimp:

The toaster and I had a blast. Laura had a great time as well.

We just might have to see what August is all about... ;)

Great job Jason. The class was a blast and I definitely learned alot. I think it helped me at my Sunday autocross but I'm just having a hard time driving the STi at it's limit.

When's the next class?!!!?

It took 45 minutes to download the 3GB of pictures that were taken. Now I have to go through all of them, convert to JPG (since I had set the camera for RAW) and downselect from about 280 pictures down to a couple dozen. :) Patience. :)

Pictures up!!!!

If you have any you'd like me to add I can make you an account in the gallery or post them for you.

If you are underwhelmed by the pictures lemme know and I'll see what else I have of you. And smile, it could be worse, you could be Alan or I, since no one managed to snap a picture of either of us... Also, if there is a particular picture you like (for example, Darrin may want the picture of Jamie leaning against the FXT with Fedex in the background...) lemme know and I can get you the full resolution version.
