Rollcall: Blackhawk July 5th/6th

I'll be there the 5th, also going to be my first time camping out friday night. Still unsure how I'm getting my bike up, if anybody has extra room on a trailer and doesn't mind haulin my bike up that'd be great as well. I can pay for gas!

Looks like if I can't find a ride it'd only be like $150 + gas to rent a van, that's not so bad

its going to be my first track day as well...i was thinking of doing the 6th also since it might be tough getting up after the 4th of july.

i don't really know anyone who would head down there with me. i don't have a trailer or anything, but would be willing to split whatever is needed. if anyone is interested don't hesitate to post or pm me!

i'm in Park Ridge to be exact...

Hoping to make my triumphant return to the track for this event. Not sure if both or which day yet. But I plan on being there, and being slow :-)

I'm signed up for the 5th only. I've got a open trailer with room for one more, but I'll need more tie-downs. I'm planning on heading over Friday night, probably in a motel in R'fd.

I rode to the track last time, i did an intro day so i only did two sessions, but i really didn't want to ride all the way home after that, especially since it was hot as all hell lol

I'm going on the 5th. I have room for one bike if you are willing to meet me up north(Gurnee/Mchenry area). Not heading out until Saturday morning though.

Who all is camping out friday night? Will be my first time camping out, i'm assuming there will be much partying, especially since it's the 4th?

Since my sidekick seems to have wimped out on me, I'll camp.
Went out last night and got a tent I can walk into. (The backpack/mcy camp tent is a crawl into, and I'm getting too old to crawl unless absolutely necessary).

But might need a hand setting this new one up the first time.

Should arrive between 6 and 7 or so.
