correct.

No sandals/flip flops and long pants required (jeans)

If the track is not going to tech the cars, then we will personally. All we are looking for is non missing lug bolts, no dripping fluid loss, and overall safetly.

If the drags get rained out, we will just head back to the hotel area, find a bar, and drink away our sorrows.

If we do get rained out, I'm going to hunt down Mother Nature and donkey punch her. Lol. I keed I keed. Lol.

So, my question is...

I have already paid for the track night and was wondering if it is canceled due to rain, will I get my money back? Or was the money for the track night going towards donations?

Tim,

I'll take the positive outlook and figure the drag racing is still on.

I am curious though, looking at the drive from Chicago, if I don't make it in time for caravan that is headed to the track from the hotels, can we just go there and drive to the pit area? I am not going to drive, I just want to watch.

Will they know we are with Timmayfest from a name list or no? Thanks.

All,

There have been some last minute additions to this year's meet that I think everyone will appreciate. If the rain holds off, this will be a VERY exciting weekend! I have a few tricks up my sleeve. LOL.....


Also, if we do happen to get rained out at the track, we will all get cleaned up at the hotel to go out to The Pub Polaris(see below) to start with. If we get back early enough, a group of us are considering heading downtown to The Arena District. If you need to get a hold of me that day, I have my iPhone with me 24/7 for email ~ t.hallman77 (at) yahoo (dot) com ~, PM's, texts, or phone calls. I'd rather not list my cell number online, but if you want it, email or PM me.
