Just copied from the timing computer.  I'll look it over and fix things up when I am not so bagged.

Got the car home OK, although the clutch was slipping and the car shudders horribly under acceleration.  Hope it is just the clutch...

Looks like it's time to get a Miata!  And thanks for all your hard work!

^ What he said. I had a blast all weekend. It was fun socializing both on and off the track and great to compete against so many skilled drivers. Apologies for leaving early and not helping clean up. We had a prior commitment in Calgary at 7pm.

I wanted to extend my thanks as well to the organizing committee for all their hard work in pulling this event off.  We started on time, finished on time, and had a great time.

Great Event and a great time.  Thanks to all that made this happen....  and yes....  It's time for a Miata.

When I go looking for the photos from this weekend,  is there anywhere special I should be looking?

Just keep an eye on the forum -- people will post links once they have the pics uploaded.

I agree it was well organized, and run. It was great socializing with everyone. I had a great time..even though I lost.
The catering was the only low spot.

Ha.  It's all subjective.  I thought the food was awesome.   :o

Good event and great competition.  I feel like it would've been nice to have smaller run groups, but I haven't considered how that would have affected work groups.

My only real complaint was the weather on Friday.

I already had to split up a few of the groups to make it work (street prepared and street touring).  Smaller groups would have made it even worse (and I got enough complaints as it was, thank you).

I also thought the food was fine.  The beans (on site) and rhubarb crumble desert (at the hall) were awesome!

thanks all!  An event like this happens only when a huge group of people work together - thanks to all who helped out and made it happen!

Here's some photos  I took - some are a bit out of focus due to some camera problem I seem to have.   :(
