Y'all have fun up there. Next year I won't have to work around the rifle range, so I may be able to make it. Which would be sweet.

Chalan also noticed today that the read-a-board at Kal Tire Place said Run Of The Ogopogo, Saturday August 10th...so, I guess that means our little event has hit the big time now. :)

I finally got my car running and puttered over to the college in case AutoX was still running, I rolled by just in time to see a burgundy Subaru wagon and a black Supra pulling out of the college, was that any of you guys?

They modified the laws a few years back, we have MR-S's now. For some reason they're all silver and bone stock around here.

SO much fun today. Got 3rd place in the AWD/FWD wild class, can't complain. Stellar event, as always, better every year. Had a blast starting cars while I was working the course, everything's more fun with flags! Several hours in the hot tub may have been too much, I need to sleep now. Also, THIS canadian is DEFINITELY stroking over the MRS. Gorgeous car.

I did enjoy that my car became the official pace car for our autoX event... by merit of its pig-like steering ratio.

OMG. That was a hella fun vacation. Got to meet some really cool peeps (old and new) and got the play crazy driving in a parking lot. Tara, I need you to post a pic of the board score because what was on paper doesn't match what I saw on the board.
Next time, the Spyder will be a lot more, entertaining.

I had a ridiculous amount of fun this weekend. I can't say thanks enough to everyone for helping to plan, volunteering their time, equipment, money, etc., and for being such an amazing community of fantastic people. Every year I'm reminded that although the cars bring us together, the people are what keep us coming back each time.

Thank you!

It was great having you and the Missus again this year David! I'm really glad you guys made it out... with both the MR-S and the Supra!

I agree with ChrisD; its the cars that bring us together - but the people that really make this event awesome! ( I have to say that too, because for the last 3 years I haven't brought my car... some of you doubt it even exists. I don't blame you - I think the same thing!! :P )

Thank you to everyone for your hard work, with the AutoX setup/marshaling/tear-down, and with the clean-up of the chalet too. It will go a long way in securing our chances of being able to stay there again and again in the many years to come!

Well said Chris, agree 100 percent. Every year I get to know you guys a little better and every year the event is a little better. I think this Chalet\autox thing we have going on now is gold. Doing the main cruise on the friday isn't a bad idea either. Already looking forward to next year!

Having the chalet was part of the fun. Doing that twisty ,windy, hair pin 20km mountain road was a blast.
40+ degrees on Saturday! WHEW Damn hot in those helmets>
