The name tags usually go on the windows, so magnets don't work.

I think they're $20 a car.

If your co drivers are nervous about the math components, don't worry. This year, since my regular co driver is not going, I'm preparing a spreadsheet that should make the base calculations a lot faster. This won't help if you need to alter your calcs on the road, but it'll give you a big head start on Saturday night.

I wish there some way to make the window decals removable/reusable...a few years back, we managed to get some that stuck to glass but were easily removable - the stickiness gradually wore off, so we just resorted to taping them to the windows.

Here are the nametags so far. Jim, do you want a different colour yellow? Or maybe make both flags yellow only?

Spelling ok? Anybody else need tags and neglected to tell me?

Gotcha Jim. I'll make you 2 sets.

Also, to be clear, they're all printed in white lettering so it's white lettering floating in the window. Looks like the Liong/Tidsbury sample on the top left.

I'm going to production this afternoon. If there's any other changes or requests or new nametags, let me know via PM ASAP. Thanks

-Tim

Any chance of getting in on the name tags? Was out of town for the last week...
If not, no worries, I have a masters degree in duct tape.

I've joined up with the Boxer Rally team . . . and may be stealing Pistachoo as well if our team captain is amenable.

Let me molest it on dry pavement for a year, then I'll think about turning it into a replica Dakar 911.
(but seriously, I'd probably bring it out to rallyX once if I could find gravel tires and giant mudflaps)

Updates:

I'll be picking up the name tags today. Make arrangements with me to pick them up if you want to install them before the big day. Putting them on Friday night in Merritt is usually sketchy as they don't stick so good in the super cold. Reminder, name tags are $20 a set.

I've been working on an excel spreadsheet I acquired years ago for doing the time calculations. I've got it cleaned up and tested against the calculations done by my wife on previous route books. It seems to work pretty good. PM me your email if you want a copy in advance.

That's about all. Timmy's this coming Friday Jan 31 is on. I'll be there and will bring all the goodies and laptop etc. I highly recommend the new people attend. Ricewagon can regale you with stories of rally glory, and I can discuss how to best dig a car out of a ditch..

Can't make it to Timmies Friday as I'm doing solo parenting this week. Will make arrangements to pick my set up from you next week before Friday though.
Thanks!
