    PIR Charity Race

    As usual, thanks to everyone who helped put on a great charity weekend. It is always so nice to know that we are helping others who are less fortunate. Doernbecher is, of course, a favorite place to send our help, but it was interesting to hear about the other group we've chosen (I forget the...

    Volunteers and club scheduling

    Sorry to reboot this topic, but I finally had time to sit down and read the rule changes thread about scheduling. BTW thanks to Randy and anyone else who had a hand in setting up the actual proposals. They are well-put-together and thoughtful. There is something that hasn't really come up in...

    Doernbecher Race

    Tracy Klein and Shelly Miller were the Doernbecher committee and I'm sure they put a huge number of hours into making our weekend such a big event. And of course Race Chairman Kai. It seemed like there were more spectators than Rose Cup, and everyone who came by seemed to be having a great...

    June Racing

    Okay guys, how did the weekend at Mission go? Sorry to miss that one, but we opted for the trip to Laguna Seca instead. (Long trip...) Food for thought--the basics are very important. I've heard Gary Bockman tell students in the school classroom sessions about how skidding tires don't steer...

    PIR Opener

    Hey all, let's hear some good things about last weekend. It's good to analyze a problem which has occurred so as to keep it from happening again, but-- we race for fun and part of that fun is bench-racing afterwards. Also, we need to remember that a whole lot of people give up their time and...

    Thanks

    Thanks to all who worked so hard to make our opening weekend happen! Running out of the South side made for new issues for organizers to deal with, especially timing and scoring. Please remember to thank those people if you see them--I know that Linda Blackburn had a really rough time making...

    Cascade School Test n Tune

    FYI Just talked to Tracy about the group setups for the school. She has had alot of racers enter the TnT so MSR shows that that group is waitlisted, but Tracy is splitting the TnT into two groups to allow more entries. So, if you want to get some practice in on Friday, please sign up on MSR...

    Mission Race

    A handful of Conference racers made the trek north last weekend. It rained (surprise!) much of the weekend, but cleared for most of the racing (sorry group 4). There were some good battles and (I think) not much carnage. Thanks to the stewards, workers, etc. who made the trip, and to SCCBC...
