2017 SoloPro Schools - May 20/21, 2017 at Fort Macleod
« on: February 19, 2017, 11:40:47 PM »
You may hold your spot for the 2017 SoloPro Schools now!

http://msreg.com/2017SoloPro

The schools have changed and we promise to give you some more new material this year and with that in mind Tim has been revising the material and is excited about the changes that will help to develop all of our driving abilities!  Actually I am excited as well and think that we have some surprises in store for you!  Onward and upward!   :)

If there is a lack of interest for any of the schools, the deposits will be refunded or may be used as future credits toward other events.

More information on the schools and such are available here:    www.soloprodrivingschool.com

Right now the only option is for the extreme school. Are deposits required for L1/L2? Also, I can't seem to find the full price for the schools on msreg or the soloproschool site, if someone can point me in the right direction.

Whoops ... probably means I messed something up.  My apologies.

There should be options for all three.

Sorry, was out of town.   Finally got this fixed.

Level 1 and Level 2 options are now available.

Thanks, Reijo. Since the sign up is labelled as deposit, do you know what the full cost of each level is? Are the deposits refundable?

You're welcome!  Last year we charged $375 per day due to increased costs and the value of the Cdn. dollar.  The Cdn dollar is doing better now etc. so we should be able to do it for the same price or pretty close.  I'll be making up a budget probably next week.  This week is a bit of a write-off because of work and the last winter driver training on Sunday ... The deposits etc. are refundable up until the last week or so before the schools when we are fully committed and cannot backtrack if someone quits out of the blue.  However, if you find a replacement that is an alternative in that case.

So last year I signed up for the extreme school and put my deposit down, when it didn't get enough people and it was scrapped, all of the other spots were already all full and I ended up out in the cold on the wait list.

Now luckily last time it all worked out... however I'd like to avoid being in that situation again. So should I just reserve a spot in all of the programs, or is there a way I can just put a deposit for 2 days and have it applied to whichever program is actually available?

This picture is a visual image of my current plan to pay deposits to double book programs:

From what I can see there are only 9 people signed up for the school, with only 7 days left before entry is closed. Is this accurate?

Assuming 9 people is not enough to hold the school; is there a Plan B? I'd be willing to split the cost of renting the venue with the people signed up, and perhaps a few more, for the chance at LOTS of practice runs.

I could extend the date.  And I just posted about the schools on Edmonton and CSCC forums (I'm behind on "stuff") today ... so I'm expecting some more entries as they get known.

Otherwise, we could certainly set something up ... and in fact I have been planning and plotting some other options for years actually.....that I think I will bring to be this year ... something to get us all to a higher level in our driving .... stay tuned.

I signed up for novice, but was wanting to sign up for the L2 school as well. Wasn't able to select both on motorsportreg, but if you can mark my interest for it, please do.

Update:  I added L2 to the pkg.

Thanks!

Ok, I could only signed up for L1... every time I added L2, it removed L1.. and vice versa

Basically... I need to be in the same courses as Dan O (I think he is signed up for L1/L2) because we are sharing his car. Also booking a flight in and a hotel in FM.

Latest news is that potential instructors may include David Spratte and Neal Tovsen.   David has not been here before but Neal has many times.

Here's an interesting article Neal just wrote:
