Driving Discussion / Re: Help With Ice Dice Set Up
« on: October 20, 2017, 02:49:00 PM »
Most folks seem to run a 10-20mm narrower tire than the stock size and a 1-2" smaller diameter wheel (to keep costs down and get a softer sidewall). The CSCC has some details on max studs per tire and stud size here: https://cscc.speedracer.ca/forums/rallyx-news/2017-cscc-ice-dice-series/

As for brand you'll here a lot of different opinions, I'm a fan of some of the cheap brands on PMCtire like Weslake, Sailun, Champiro etc. some swear by the Hakka's

I thought they disproved the Hakkis last year on the ice, if I remember correctly many were faster on other brands and the super amazing hakkis were getting beaten up left/right/center by the competition.  Now that being said the Hakki 9's are out now which come with some new improvements that may tip the scales back in their direction.

They were allowed provided you left the studs it came with installed.

Yes, I can print those too.  It is convenient to have 2 copy machines there ... and much faster than a normal printer!

Will look for your email (let me know how many).

I reckon 15-20 should be enough

Bump.

Most stuff sold, lowered the price on some of the remaining items.

I'll arrange to get the key (business hours) on Friday probably and then make payment for the lot.  So, we'll have to get the key to one of you guys before Friday afternoon (when I'm heading up to Leduc).

Course design (philosophy by Murray P.) and then completed by me ... so I have to pass those on as well.  I have a few touch-ups/tweaks to make on it and it will be done ....

Also:

1.  Tech forms - Cam has been stealing them and has a year's supply!  ;)
2.  I'll print up a few general waivers.
3.  Under 18 waivers - will look into that as well if there is enough ... or print more.
4.  Course maps - setup maps - will print separately - maybe 4-5 or so .... 1 or 2 11x17.
5.  Course maps - for participants - will run off a bunch at UPS probably today.

If I think of something else, I'll post on here.

So, all of the above I will have to pass on to someone.  I live in the NW corner of the city - Silver Springs ... anyone near by?

Thanks Reijo, any chance you could also print some copies of the Proxy Form. I'll email it to you now. I unfortunately live in the SW so probably can't grab the key/maps etc from you on Friday.

Reijo will be out of town for the WCMA AGM.

Technically the coupons are meant to be only for those that have taken an SASC Winter Driving School with us in the past. And yes to be able to use the coupon you must have a valid membership also.

Thanks all, a fun day, cold but fun.

And thanks Ryan for the coaching.

If we used YYC more we could justify working out storing (a set of?) gear on site and less work would be necessary each event.


Already done


Schedule a minimum number of events there in order to keep the venue but do not 'engineer' attendance by requiring travel to those sites for the championship. This will show you the real desire of people to go there and YYC. People have skipped non-champ YYC events in order to go to 'required' champ events in Red Deer and FtMc so the effect is doubled and this year's attendance numbers aren't necessarily representative.

Honesty with the other venues would be a reasonable approach. "We have a great local venue for a limited time and need to take of advantage of it for our membership. Therefore we need to cut back dates for 2018...but we will be back!"


A potential consequence of dropping the 2 events/venue minimum is that turnout becomes so low at those other venues that the club loses money trying to host events there. And we need to make sure we don't do anything to jeopardize those venues after 2018. 


All this being said we've definitely heard the feedback loud and clear for YYC's popularity and with that venue being confirmed for 2018 this will all be factored into the development of the 2018 schedule.
