Since stickies are separated on the mobile format, I just now saw this thread.

All in all, I had a blast. The east course was a ton of fun, especially for me having never participated in an HPDE or track school. I was driving 04trailsti's car, and it felt quite comfortable stretching it's legs through the two dips (fourth gear!).

The demo rides were cool, and for the most part, I appreciated the laid-back nature of the event. It was a nice break from points events.

I was pretty frustrated with that myself, and I also had issues with the west course, too. Seeing pointer cones misaligned in a three gate crossover tends to cost one a bit of their mid-run focus.

I agree about working - I would much rather just suck during a work assignment and know that course layout is consistent and scoring is accurate.
