Brigitte and I are in and giving the Experienced class a try for the first time. Just tell me where the finish is and we'll be there...

At least I think we're in; I sent in the registration form to Charlotte.

Hi Cathy,

I've posted the call for checkpoint volunteers on the Maritime Miata Club forum. We may get some mileage out of it, but don't take anything to the bank.

Whooo!! The list is looking good! We could always use more competitors! What better way to spend a Sunday on the long weekend than a nice long drive around the valley? and some competition if you're into that sort of thing :D

We've been practicing our mud driving techniques in and out of the vineyard over the past couple of days. We're ready! :D

We're looking forward to a great rally on Sunday.

Thanks to Pidge and all of the volunteers for a great rally! The roads were excellent (well, not necessarily the quality of all of them...), speeds were brisk, instructions were challenging and the competition was daunting. We learned a lot on our first entry in the Experienced class, and obviously we have much more to discover. Congrats to all the finishers for superb drives, and especially Ian and Tim, and Cathy and Libby.

And while we don't want to wish a yet-to-appear summer away, Brigitte and I look forward to the Fall Rally and any others which may show up this season. Thanks again to everyone.

Gary
