Talking Bear Paw Cone Slaying Extravaganza - Sunday, July 16th

Jason Renn, Event Chairman of the Cone Slaying Extravaganza Solo II--now to be know as "Dentdude of the Pylon Kingdom" for Sunday, July 16th--invites you to forget the dragons and come slay some cones during the Bear Paw Festival! More details may follow, yet lunch - for those who pre-register - will be "Ye Ol Pizza."

Sunday, July 16th Schedule
08:00-09:00AM Registration "Officially" Opens
08:00-09:30AM Tech Inspection Continues
09:30AM Novice Walk-Thru with Novice Training Program -- this is open to ALL Competitors
09:45AM Safety Briefing with Solo II Safety Steward Program -- this is a MANDATORY attendance for all competitors. While you're welcomed to attend this presentation at every event, the Region only requires your attendance at your first Solo II each season. You'll learn about your responsibilities while at an event and while working corners, cone displacements, radio calls and other safety matters occuring at Solo II events.
10:10AM Driver Meeting -- a welcome by the Event Chair and SCCA Board of Directors. The first car on course will take place as soon as workers are on course and Competitors are on grid.

The Region has moved to dlbracing.com as an online registration and we are promoting, pushing, and pleading with you--please pre-register for events this summer. It helps the Event Chairman plan his event and helps Registration and Timing & Scoring too! You may pay online via paypal OR you can pre-register and pay at the event. We do ask that you call the Region office at 243-2122 to register your season competition number before going to dlbracing. For those without an SCCA membership card, you will start with 200 numbers. Region members may choose a competition number between 2-99 that is not already reserved.

Registration will be maintaining two lines this year: I registered so I'm here to sign the waiver, be scanned for the event, and head to tech and the second line will be for those who did not pre-register online. Oh, another reason to pre-register online--lunch, which is provided for COMPETITORS and Region workers, will only be provided for those pre-registered competitors this year!

Entry fees for the Cone Slaying Extravaganza Solo II:
SCCA Members $30
Non-Members $40

Details for event:
-- Lunch provided for those Competitors who have pre-registered at dlbracing.
-- Helmets. Please confirm that your helmet is within the Snell ratings for this year--1995 or newer--this is a change from last year!!
-- Minor waivers. If you are a competitor under 18 or will be having friends/family that fall into this category, please remember that we need both parents signatures (options are there for one parent) for under 18 years of age individuals.

For more information, please contact the Region office at 243-2122.

Event Location: Bartlett High School.

(I just copied and pasted from Alaskascca.com, because this is less than a week away. If there are any changes, I'll update this post.)

No, thanks for the offer though. I fixed it last night, was a bit of a pain getting the shaft out, but it came. All swapped out and passed the "shake down"

Default lame attempt to drum up enthusiasm.

So, anyone else thinking about going to this one? With the recent increase of VWs at the events, I think there's room for another, yellow one. And how about you, Justin? Ready for more yet? Jerry, time to get that pretty red car out and squeal some tires? Jordy, where the heck are you? Eurojax, oh, nevermind.

And you young punks? Brian, Turtle? Ready to go up against old men and women?

I understand it's a short-notice event, and summer days have many uses. But, if you're thinking about auto-xing, this is another good event to try it out. While Bartlett isn't my favorite site, it is a site in Anchorage. And there isn't another event for over a month.

If you're free Sunday, sign up! If you have questions, feel free to ask me or many of the other auto-x guys/gals on here.

(And sorry to call a few people out, but I do like watching nice cars out on course )

No kidding, here is the prime tiem to test out your suspension, your reaction times from playing GT4. Where else can you speed through a parking lot and not get pulled over? LOL...

Seriously though, come on out and give it a whirl.

Well, I was trying to prod those who are interested, not provoke those that aren't. Just like someone wouldn't necessarily try to get me to the drag strip.

I know some of the younger guys have been talking about trying it, and I just want to encourage them to ask questions or just take the plunge and try it. Starting something like this can be intimidating, with fast cars and fast drivers. You can't look at it that way though, when you're out on course, it's just you and the car. See what you and the car are capable of.

And, I'm seeing if I can prod some of those folks I know have done it and enjoyed it. If not, it's all good of course.

I don't have a fast car or super skills behind the wheel. But, I do have a blast. I'm a fairly shy person, and am glad I decided to try it and continue to participate. The SCCA crowd is a pretty helpful bunch. Ask for help, and you'll get it.
