Re: 2017 ARRC at Road Atlanta

Old RA was orgasmic. Point the nose of the car at the third garage door(as I recall) in the maintenance building on the next ridge and stand on it. Trust physics to pull you thru the corner. Hit turn 3 flat in 4th gear. Get bored down the back straight at full throttle knowing that the Bridge was ne...

Re: Daniel Monroe Lyle

Roe never let anything get in the way of enjoying life. Probably a lesson for all of us in that . I hadnt seen him in several years but he would have been one of the last of ETR members I would have predicted to die so soon. Guess us oldtimers will have to get used to this.

I am sorry to report that long time ETR member Roe Lyle has died unexpectedly. I dont know much about the situation but Berry Funeral Home is handling the funeral. Roe was active for many years as corner worker, chief of drivers licensing and racer of the Green Bean.

Re: Paintless Dent Removal

I was going to recommend the guys at Dent Station. A bunch of my car dealer clients use them for both dents and cosmetic repairs.

Re: We lost an ETR Member today

a truly great person who seemed to know everyone and who made few enemies. I havent heard of arrangements yet but ETR should try to make a good appearance. We havent lost any members of our family like this in my extended years with SCCA.

Re: 2014 Leadership Nominations - Due Nov. 29, 2013

The ballot will not accept my vote because I chose not to give complimentary votes in uncontested positions. I dont know if anyone else has had this problem.

Re: Hankook Factory

Tennessee Region would have priority over that facility. ETR still might be able to get on it but you would have to get the consent of TR. Unfortunately modern land use planners like to have green spaces and islands in the parking lots and the zoning codes will require them.

Re: Sad day

You can run all my "to do's" before the event and probably put enough miles on it. The speed u drive to accomplish the stuff is up to you. However transporting the cones from the Parks and Recs a few at a time should take care of u.

Re: Adesa - Did anyone invite the Po Po for the Challange?

As I told you in our PM, I had emailed and called for Don last week. I talked with him today so hopefully he can work something out. As far as I know, LCSD and LPD intend to be there.

Get me a copy of the ticket. Unless the officer made special notes on the ticket, I believe that I can get the ticket adjusted.

Re: Advice on Buying a Car in NC

Having owned a SVT, are you really sure you want to do that???? Great car until work has to be done on the motor then a real PITA. I sold mine to buy the GTO and have never regretted the sale. The buyer got hit while delivering pizza and got a decent check.

Re: Charter?

sound policy? that is not a charter item but rather SCCA. The charter and bylaws really just tell you how to run the local region and there are so many variations that it really dont matter what ETR does compared to Chatt region.
