Eh, no worries guys, we're still getting things done. Got several cool vendors potentially lined up for raffle wares, IPD of course is a huge sponsor, formal date release and PR materials are in the mix as well, got some pretty cool stuff lined up already!

Question for you guys though...

I'm still working on details for Saturday. The easy stuff is already figured out tentatively, but...

Gas karts or electric?

That's tough. Power to weight and track is vital info. I have done Ykart here in Portland and came away unimpressed. Then again I'm a slow lardass, so there is that.

Haven't been on the track that still uses gas. Electric is nice since there's no fire suits to mess with, instant torque as well. Price is the same for either place.

Yes, things are progressing nicely. A date has been picked, paperwork is in process, sponsors are being contacted, PR stuff is being generated. We have a scheduled release cycle we're working on, expect a teaser next month. ;)

And I've gotten a few previously never contacted raffle prize donors on board, stuff you guys will like.

You should fly up here to do the B230FT/T-5 swap and drive it down there, Roadkill style

Again, there was ever a question of you going? You just said you're a jet setter, so where's the question on you attending?

It's some random little event we do every once in a while...

BTW guys, got a teaser article going out in the next Rolling as well. We have some killer artwork for the flyer this year and may actually make up some posters to sell at the event.
