Everyone remember a rain coat. Might have some interesting weather until noon or so.

Calling for early morning rain Saturday. Its gonna rain all day today and tonight as well so I'm hoping that the storms will die off pretty early Saturday morning.

We'll still be there and ready for registration at 9:00, may have to wait a while if it is still raining early but it looks like it's gonna stop not too long after that. Those are gonna be some slippery rocks!

I'm bringing extra umbrellas, we'll make you stand over the trucks as they drive the course to keep them dry.

I am going to have extras though, to cover my trucks and stuff in case a brief shower comes through. They've saved my truck when that sudden downpour comes from nowhere before. I'll have a couple for anyone else to use if needed.

Wow! What a great time...I never knew last place could be that much fun, even with the strange weather! Thanks alot guys, today was a learning experience for sure. I'm sure there will be many mods made by a lot of us, and it will just get better. My buddy that took the pics today took over 200 shots so there ought to be some good ones up soon.

Be sure to give your buddy (Chuck I believe) a thanks from me! It was pretty cool to have a pro there!!

Had a great time today with all you guys!! I wish my rig was a little more cooperative than it was, but the bugs will get worked out (gonna attack the glitching via 3-4 means tomorrow).



And Chris, could you email me that pic of my rig in that "precarious" position that you took?

Well, he's not really a pro...but he takes some damn nice shots. It's a hobby of his and I think he enjoys the practice!

I sent you a pm about that pic.

I had a blast. It was my first comp event and learned a ton. I would like to thank everyone for making me and Butch feel like one of the crew and am looking foward to the next event.

I must say that I had a really fun time and was glad the weather cooperated and let us get in all 3 stages. Although it made the rocks pretty challenging.

I wasn't able to get online to post the results this weekend and sure enough, I left the scoresheets at home today. So I'll post them in this thread later tonight.
