right before I break my leg.

I dont know if I will make this Sunday. With the nice weather I was going to ride sunday and was trying to switch it around to Saturday but Im not sure it will happen.

You guys have fun and keep the sticky side down


Ryan and Paul if it stays dry for anther week or so do you want to try and ride Texas Creek (I think that is what its called, that area with the really hard rock crawling trail down south)? Maybe next Saturday?

I think I read something on the website about not renting numbers anymore, but could be wrong. I just looked back through, but didn't see it... but, there are still two sites if you google Harrys Roamers.... I could be wrong.

I think that's Penrose, not Texas Creek, but yes to that one too.

Logistics

It always seems to be cold at the races for some reason and I'm always jealous of the guys with the propane porch heaters. Does anyone have one that they could bring? If so, I'll bring a tank of propane.

Have you considered that might be why it's called ice racing?

Well, I opened my mouth too soon. Can't do this Sunday, but if anyone chooses to do this again in the future please post up.

My son and I should be racing bike numbers 83 and 44 if you want to try and find us. If they'll let me, I'll probably be wearing a suit so I should be easy to spot.

Practice

Practice sessions will be a little different this year. Per Harry's Roamers:

"GATES & Signup open at 6 AM, Tech inspection at 6:30 AM and practice from 7:30-8:30 AM (we will not run any longer then this time, if you miss your machines practice time, your first practice will be your HEAT) & finally RACES start at 9 AM"

Status update

We have 3 racers (Me, Ryan, and Rob) plus one "maybe".

Who's bringing a video camera? I lost mine.
