I just got off of the phone with Steve. I asked him to fax me info about what's going on this Saturday and he'll be sending it to me shortly.

Anyway, all we need to bring is ourselves, our cars. Make sure you've got enough gas to run around in circles! It'd be kinda bad if you ran outta gas half way through the day.

Food and drinks are provided.

I don't think we have to worry about helmets, but if it probably wouldn't hurt to bring one if you have one.

As for how to get down there, you can follow the directions off of the <a href="http://vcmc.erc.bc.ca/directions/bbay/bbay.html" target="_new">VCMC</a> web page.

If you aren't very familliar with that part of Vancouver (Delta, Ladner, Boundary Bay area), a bunch of us are meeting up at the Future Shop parking lot at Metrotown at around 7:45am on Saturday. We'll be heading south across the Queensborough and Alex Fraser bridges along Hwy 91, and then we'll head along Hwy 10 (Ladner Trunk Road) to the Boundary Bay airport. If you're planning on meeting up with us at Future Shop, please post here to let me know.

Also, if you've requested stickers from Orbiter and you are comming to the school, please let me know so I can bring your stickers on Saturday.

One last thing -- DON'T SPEED -- especially when we get into the Boundary Bay airport property. The last time I was at BB, a few RS'ers were driving along the airport roads quite agressively. Some of the people who were auto-x'ing came down hard on me because they didn't want to loose access to the BB facilities. So please, drive with respect along these roads -- we'll get a chance to push are cars hard on the track during the school! That's about it!

LaterZ!
Darren!!

[edit] -- changed the meet time from 7:10am to 7:45am! School starts @ 8:30am so be on time!

Okay, I've good news and good news. I just received the fax from Steve which has the itinerary of what's going to happen on Saturday.

The first good thing is that they want us to be at BB by 8:30!! That means we don't have to meet at FS @ 7:10am!! Let's meet at Future Shop at 7:45am.

Here's what else is going on -- taken directly from the fax.
We will do a classroom for about 45 minutes discussing various aspects of how to be a better driver, go over the exercises to be conducted, these exercises will take us up to noon. All of which will help in the afternoon when we will start running a practice slalom and a large slalom. We will break up into two groups: one group practicing and the other on the larger course. We will do some timed events, this will not be only based on speed in particular but more on how close you can be consistant in your times.

If you have any problems getting there you can call Tony Morris Jr. on his cell 341-3884.

<a href="http://www.drivingunlimited.com/" target="_new">Driving Unlimited</a> are the people who are going to be running the track day. If you have any more questions, please feel free to contact me.

LaterZ!
Darren!!

ps -- anybody with a video/digital camera like to bring one out on Saturday?

One more thing -- be sure to take any loose things out of your car (toys, things hanging on the rearview, steering wheel locks, tissue boxes, pens, etc.) We'll probably be driving around pretty hard so you don't want those things flying around inside your car.

See you Saturday morning!

LaterZ!
Darren!!
