Grattan Roll Call: Who's in? 6/23-6/24

I'll be there Sunday (24th).

Tony /Ian, are your bitch asses making it?

Where do you guys camp for grattan? I probably won't get there until late Saturday night, does the place have a time when they shut the gates?

I'll be there both days. Last time we were allowed to stay at the track. I think gates close at 10pm, but I'd call to make sure.

I'll be there with my Aprilia RS250. It will be cool to have a fast LW to lead me around. I'm sure my brother will be hitting you up for more SV tips.

What group do you ride in? I'm not a NESBA regular so I had to sign up for "I" but according to certain sources I can ride "A" no problem just as long as I present my Expert road race license. Let me know and I'll go in the same group you are in.

I'm in for both days. It will be my first time out since my crash at Barber in May, 2006 and I will need to scrape the rust off! Also my first Daddy/Daughter TD! Looking forward to this!

You can camp outside the gate at Grattan. And it seems that last time they let folks camp in the paddock as well on Saturday night.
