Well, whatever, if fewer Californians will be in OR I'm in favor of whatever the policy or plan is.

Sorry guys, track day is far from in the budget for the club right now, let alone quite a few that would like to go, myself included. Thunderhill requires full payment for the entire day at the track, regardless of number of cars.

If you can put some numbers together I'm sure the whole group can pull through considering the planning stages are happening far enough in advance for this to be a realistic option

Seriously? That's more or less the going rate for a few hours up here. Guess it also depends on the amount of participants at a given time.

15 people to do the 2-mile course would not be too bad...so $333 per person. Not too far off the numbers I just pulled straight out of my ass.

when you guys have 19 people paid up ... I'll trow in my Benjamin



I stand by my statement .... it's hard enough to get people to commit to buying a $10 part here let alone cough up ~300 for something thats going to happen next year

also what else do you have up there?

Santa Cruz meet, with a drive through the redwoods to follow? It's not a major meet like Davis, but it could be fun. Anybody else down?

I know the perfect park to have a BBQ with our cars all lined up nearby. We can leave Santa Cruz in the early afternoon and head north on hwy1 a bit, then cut through the mountains to Skyline hwy35, so that people can head home from there, either to the Bay Area, Central Valley, North Bay, or loop back down hwy9 to head south of the Bay.

I'll put something together, reserve the park, start a thread in the Events forum, and PM anyone who is interested. Just let me know.

Definitely hit me up before you post a date Thomas, lemme see if we can coordinate it around other club stuff. Shouldn't be an issue at all though.

And yeah, trying to get that many people in to cover t-hill for a day, not likely. That's one of the main reasons the club stopped, lack of attendance and that's when it was only $150/car.

Fyi Hooked on driving does events for groups but I don't know that that costs. HOD usually charges 300 for a days session through them but you get 5 20min sessions. Just an idea but unlikely.

I would prefer an Autocross. If you put one on, I'd likely make the drive down for the meet.

Big auto-x where you can get up to 3rd gear/70-90mph is probably way more realistic on a TB budget

Sounds like there is still a lot of interest for an autox. I'll dig around again for a site, not sure what will happen though. Seems like this area is pretty much done for in terms of places allowing that kinda thing.

Looks like the only place where this is even an option would be the San Joaquin Fairgrounds all the way down in Stockton...

Autox would be great.
Track day is unrealistic. I helped with the past Volvo club Thunderhill track days back when it was super cheap and getting 20 people to pay $150 back then was near impossible. We had to invite the Saab club a couple times just to get to 20.

Stockton fairgrounds might be a place to look into. I'm not sure what they have for a shaded park type setting, but I know they've had autox's there before.

A car show, a small swap meet (think Davis) and an autox would be 3 things I'd try to include. That would become a pretty big show I would think.

I am down for whatever, but I don't think a track day is not too far fetched if we don't mind inviting Lemons teams/etc into the mix for a test and tune day.
