If you can train, I'd be interested in helping out on the chairing side of life. I'd need *lots* of guidance since dirt isn't tarmac.

It's not something that can be done the day of the event,
We probably spent about three hours setting up the course, driving, changing it etc.
It's definately something that is setup on Saturday and then it's a guidance of myself SSS, chair and course designer.

Just letting you know

John

In that case, I can't do it. I'd be fine with an extremely early Sunday but I can't do Saturday.

Anything I can do to help? I have never been tech chief or a waiver chief but I have been through many tech inspections and signed many waivers. I have also assisted with waivers.

I'm sure we can use your help, Jim. A lot of the jobs are very similar to what we do at Solo events.

I would love to compete but my Camaro is too low, less than 3 inches of clearance, my truck is considered a roll over hazard and I will NOT EVER rally my 57 Chevy. I however volunteer to do the tech. How early do I need to be there?

I rallyx'ed my Integra, and it's just about dragging on the ground. Didn't have any problems.

Getting ready to mount my new/used snow tires, they're a bit taller so I might need to raise the coil-overs up a bit so they don't rub.

    We had some technical issues at the beginning, but smooth after that.

    The Ford Escort GT was fastest.
