Am I welcome back lol! The last event was well done Grant! You put on a great show and organized a top notch racing event that was entertaining for the entire day.

Unfortunately I was more interested in my video camera then setting a fast time , I'd like to come out to this one and have fun again of course but maybe try to be a little more competitive!

Of course you're welcome back!

Winter-X events seem to be 1/2 Subaru & 1/2 Miata... Weirdly enough.

Agreed.

Also, I wish they'd stick to either "not plowing at all" or "plowing the entire width of the taxiway"... The first side is supposed to be wider than that! (And there isn't supposed to be a frigging (EPS or porsche club) trailer parked at the first corner!!! )

That's not our trailer, we bring it there and take it back after every event, and we don't run winter events - too cold for us!

Yea, we think it's the other group I mentioned... But since we're not 100% sure, I needed to pad that guess along w/ someone else.
