Re: Update from Mike Cobb on Covid 19

I guess we will have an opportunity to see how they deal with the west coast events in April, but following CDC recommendations would nix Grenada Pro and certainly threaten the DC Pro and Spring Nats. :(

Re: Dixie/Zmax

I'll be forgoing basketball games, nursing home visits, going on cruises, and going to parades as well.

Re: Dixie/Zmax

Made the decision a little earlier that I'm out. It is a really tough decision, but it is irresponsible for me to go and then come back and potentially expose at risk people. Can't really see anything changing (for the better) for Charlotte next week. Honestly think the SCCA needs to save us from ou...

Re: Dixie/Zmax

I badly want to go and busted my butt to get ready, but with the way this thing is spreading and the number of places that are banning 250+ or 300+ person events, I'm not sure it isn't irresponsible to have it.

Re: Dixie/Zmax

I just don't want to get beat by SSC.

...and if it is going to happen anywhere, it'll be at Dixie, which is low grip and 90% transitions, and has a bunch of Florida drivers that have had like 8 events already this year.

Re: Novice program

Probably 150 to 200 entries.

They typically do 4 heats. Instructors work 2 heats, so they have half the need there, too.

Re: Novice program

...and even with CCR, it is going to be something of a hit or miss experience. Some instructors might just be looking to drive cars or get more looks at the course. Some just want to get that work assignment box checked and go have a beer. That's life. ...and the student has to buy in, too. I ask pe...

Re: Novice program

Can't see how. They aren't violating anything regarding passenger rules and Section 4.1.D gives discretion for event organizers to refuse entry or continued runs.

Re: Novice program

I've probably had 15-20 students with CCR (Instructors work 2 heats and generally have 2-3 students per heat). I've driven 2 cars. One guy begged me to drive his car. And I had a 16 year old girl and after 2 runs, I decided that it would be best to show her. Asked her and her dad if I could drive th...

Re: Novice program

Yeah. I've instructed with CCR for maybe 4 or so events and absolutely love it.

Re: Novice program

I know that one of the concerns from an operational standpoint is committing manpower. We can implement a mentor program without tying it to work assignments. We can do things like team competitions (pair a novice/pro/open or whatever) that might build some comradery and do it unofficially without i...

Re: Novice program

I agree 100%... that's why it needs to be made clear... if you stay for fun runs, you stay to help clean up. Period. You'll learn really quick who wants to fun run. That helps a bit, but as a trailer hauler or chair or whatever, you've still got to be there, even though you may not have the time or...

Re: Novice program

Fun runs are tough. We were doing them at Pelli when I was chairing an event or 2 a year and dumping cones with Gebbia when he would chair an event or 2 a year. ...even with me living 5 minutes away, it was a grind. The same 3 to 6 people that were bringing the trailer, dumping cones at 6 or 7 am et...
