Daily driver is an 850 Turbo. Dirt toy is a VW Golf, which has taken FTD at some rallycrosses beating a WRX in the process
Hmmm, was that the orange 323 with Florida plates? I passed that car on the interstate on the way up...and the way home

Our plan was originally that I would take photos for Anders at the start of SS1, then go hang out with the nabisco people the rest of the day - spectating, driving dirt roads, etc.

When we got there, they asked if we wanted to "work" - I said, "if you need workers..." They said, "okay, we'll have you taking pictures and your wife can work start control."

Found out the next morning that we were actually working SS1 & 6, not just 1!!! Okay...

After SS1, we found out that we were also working SS4, which had been brought back from the dead (it had previously been cancelled due to... LACK OF WORKERS!). Hmmm... no time to do anything but "work" and drive to the next spot to "work" now.

Fredswyfe was sooooo disappointed that she wasn't going to be able to spectate with the nabisco people. But... we talked to our leader (William, the guy in the green Expedition), and he switched us from start control to marshal positions, which worked out great because Fredswyfe was now able to spectate, and I was able to snap some pretty pictures.

After it was all over, I asked the wife if she had enjoyed the day, and of course she said Hell yes.

The experience "working" at Sandhills was so much better than the experience "spectating" (hahahaha!!!) at Cherokee Trails that they just can't even be compared. And I paid $20 for a damn spectating pass at Cherokee Trails! At Sandhills, they paid me!

Some jobs take more training than others. Working start and finish controls certainly qualify. But if we have to use all of our skilled workers to do road closures and marshall spectators, there is no one left to run the stage! Which leaves even FEWER of even more skilled workers to work scoring and radio net, and then the stage gets stopped!

Stage 4 was cancelled as of 8pm on Friday night until the rallymaster got volunteers from the competitor's crew and friends to man that stage.

There will be perhaps 2-4 trips to the area, where you will pay all of your own gas and likely hotel too.
2 ) You will pay to spectate. The money you front will be used to pay a person to do everything in option 1 above.

So, more than anything, this post is a call for volunteers. We're all in rally because we think this is a great sport. We need more people who love it enough that they are willing to help make it happen and try to improve it.

Anyone?

I would love to do this. Get some maps and a GPS and drive the roads. Unfortunately it takes time. lots of time i don't usually have.

So i'll keep volunteering as i can.

maybe i'll retire young and run rally's for a hobby

Exactly!!! I was taking classes till about 10pm that night before to learn exactly what to do... Then the next morning while Stage 1 was going on I was reciving a refresher at my stage (2)... But after that I was good and I had an awesome time!!! I really wish that someone had a video camera there to video some of the starts( and me getting pelted by sand after every EVO that I launched outta there)...

Might have to do it again in Tennesee..

If it wasn't over 700 miles from my house, I'd commit to more.

I'm putting up links to the picture repositories on the sandblast web site. If you have some, and they aren't listed here then let me know where they are.

If you need space to dump the photos, or if you think you'll be taking the pictures down later, I can set up a ftp site for you to drop them.

The more you get into it the more you realize how complicated a sport this is. There is really a lot of behind the scenes stuff that goes on.

And most of it _can_ affect the competitors scores. The navigation seat suddenly becomes even more vital for the work they do there.
