Blackhawk Farms - July 3/4 Who's In?

Someone has to start these threads I guess...

I finally bit the bullet and signed up for both days. I failed to get my "early registration discount" since I waited too long, but scheduling wouldn't allow it.

I've only done about 1/2 track day(wet stuff) this year plus the YCRS, so I'll be a backmarker for the A-group. I'll do my part by being the designated passee.

I have another track day scheduled soon, and we have a block party on the 4th. It's enough to keep me busy.

I believe the post on the NESBA forum was talking about a BBQ the night of the 3rd. Should be a good time like last year.

I Hope to be. I'm out for RA. The braking fingers are working again, and yesterday I was able to sit on the bike and actually open the throttle, but there's not enough strength/fine control yet to be safe riding street, much less track. Hope to try to go around the block Wednesday evening as a start.

I'll probably come out for the BBQ either way. Have a new 300mm lens to play with on the camera as well.

Good to hear your healing up Craig. Hope to see you out there and hope to be out there myself. Maybe I'll make the barbecue if I can't ride. By the way send me any of those pics you got from Putnam if you get a chance.

I left for the coast without the SD card, so they'll have to wait till I get back. I've posted them here:

The original JPEGs are about 5MB each, the Raw files around 10MB each.

EDIT: Looks like the bandwidth limit on the free account has been exceeded.
