Roll Call Putman Aug 28th and 29th

I've never been and 90% sure that I'm going to do it. I guess I have to start looking for a place to sleep now.

I'll be there Sat. (CLSB Freebie!) and possibly Sun. I have done a couple trackdays there, it's super cool. Flowing track, great surface, nice facility, really nothing to complain about. Oh yeah, had my first crash there, run off is good! I heard the Holiday Inn is were you sleep and the Ramada is were you drink.

Some notes about Putnam, bring a fresh set of tires that track EATS them. But it has superb grip, oh and watch out for the pit wall on exit of the last turn. You don't want to run wide there, trust me.

It is a track day with NESBA, a site sponsor. Awesome track, great runoff except on one corner, and it chews through tires. Bring a fresh set of tires. Don't stay at Ramada, try and get the Holiday Inn that is about a block away (well within stumbling distance). I think there is another hotel in the same parking lot.

I can't get to that one. It's a race weekend (oh, and my birthday weekend).

I called the Holiday Inn Express direct number and they changed the reservation I already made to the $65 rate. She did ask what event it was. I said we were with NESBA - Northeast..... I wasn't forced to fib and say we were racing.

I changed our res for Sept, too. No go for October. The covered bridge festival means they're not going to part with a room for less than a prime rate.

I'll be there. I usually book my hotels on Priceline for like $40-50 and stay in Indianapolis though, its only a 45 minute drive from downtown Indianapolis, the only problem is that I'm absolutely shit scared of getting my bike stolen out the trailer the one night I'm at the hotel.

So is this all the people who are going? Where is everyone going to pit? I like to be close to the bathrooms (not too close) and pit entrance. I ride a white and blue SV #77 and I'll be pitted with a Mille R #10. See ya there.

I've never been there, so I guess I'll pit where I find space. Look for a 5*8 enclosed trailer with a colored motorcycle decal on the side or see picture for bike number.
