I do OD for June 9 Autocross  @ RIR

and Co-OD for August 11 @VMP - but only if we can do a 911 setup, no Crevette.



The rest is to far out for me to plan.



Cheers

I think we can work together and come up with a great porvette course!

I can do a OD event or two as well as timing and scoring. Just let me know when anyone needs help. I think one of the autox dates conflicts with a lemons race in June so we can work around that.

I'll Co Od for someone. Maybe I can teach someone?
Any first timers want to volunteer?
Meadow event park is a cool place!
Put me down for Co but if no one volunteers for Od I'll do it.

I'm thinking about the April date at MEP. Practice normal, and the sunday make it a mirrorkhana. We need to be able to time 2 tracks at once with timing etc.. We did this at VMP many years ago, and MEP would be a good place to do it.

It's like Pro solo, just no christmesstree. We need to line up the cars by class, etc. so two cars staring which are about the same.

Any interest let me know.



Cheers

Dont think MEP will work for what you are looking at doing.
You can be the OD though I'll co od another event.

Just looked at that place Google Maps, and you are right. It looked much more square when I was driving, never mind.

Have we ordered the stickers with the season schedule on them?
Would love to start using them... mounted or not on VMSC business cards.

Just today someone at work asked me when the season starts.   :)

Didn't someone just get a nice new to them Porsche?
Quit your belly aching and bring the Porsche out, if you do I'll make nice little course for you! (maybe) don't want Englebert to get to happy with his flame throwing Porsche, ohhh and we can't forget about Beth! All of you P Car enthusiast need to get together and OD and Co Od an event. I promises I wont complain because as Chris and Keath (although he really went to the dark side) says, every course is a Corvette course, Bring it!!!!!!

  I see a Porche vs Corvette challenge in the making. But that may not be fair because everyone knows Porchas just look good at autocrossing.
 

Wait a sec, what's the topic of this tread again ?

Just to add to this, here is a little pre-view of my added cone mowing device.

This will make it look even more better, even if it's not as fast as the Crevette's.

Maybe next practice day, those who are willing should draw straws and trade around for a couple of runs.

Post by: rinkdink72 on April 01, 2013, 12:54:01 PM
Thanks, Beth.  We should be done early on Saturday since it's a practice.  Hopefully the course can be "re-sued' with modifications for the event.

If you get the chance, can you update the calendar with the Club meeting locations for May and June???

Thanks!!

Thanks, Engelbert and Beth!  We've got May covered across the board now.

Anyone interested in co-od'ing with Engelbert for June?  We also need a volunteer for Timing & Scoring lead (must have experience or volunteer to help an experienced T&S person) and Event Tech.

Dave and Beth - Got you on the list for June. 

We could still use a third co-OD and a second experienced person to help with Tech Inspections.  Please let me know if you would like to volunteer.



Title: Re: 2013 Autocross OD Schedule

We're preparing for September's practice and event.  We need OD's to run the day (course design, ensure we're ready to race, etc.) for both September 21 (practice) and September 22 (Event).  Bud has volunteered to be OD for the 22nd. 

Please let me know if anyone would like to volunteer for OD and Co-OD positions, timing & scoring and tech inspection leads for the weekend.

Thank you!!

Bud has volunteered to be OD for the 22nd. 


I will jump in for Bud, since he had something coming up that weekend. I will show up at the end of Practice, which would be around 3:00PM, to set up the course for Sunday,

Actually I think you and John Harmon already volunteered for both days.......   :)

I don't plan to any practice any more for the rest of this season. I try to save what's left on my tires for the last few AX events. Looks like I have 5 events left on my tires. Doing Practice could be between 3 to 4 events.

Sorry, I will do the Sunday OD. I'm sure there will be somebody to set up for Practice on Saturday morning.

So do you still need/want a co-od for either day? If so let me know. I am signed up for both days.


Title: Re: 2013 Autocross OD Schedule

As far as I can tell, we still need an OD for Saturday (practice).

William - If you're just volunteering for co-OD then I think we still need a full OD volunteer for Saturday.

Title: Re: 2013 Autocross OD Schedule
Post by: ccann26 on August 13, 2013, 01:04:01 PM

 Just be an OD since there can be more than one I think OD's get more points and you will essentially be doing the same thing. I will OD with you If I can get my schedule straight at work for both days.


Title: Re: 2013 Autocross OD Schedule
Post by: jamescarriv on August 13, 2013, 05:00:38 PM
In response to Jeff's email I volunteer for something on both days, however, I have no experience. Let me know if there is something I can help with.
