I'll be headed down after Saturday's class lets out. I'm riding Sunday. Depending on weather I'll either camp or hotel.

EDIT: Hotel is too much $. I'm camping.

I have a new track bike to sort out! Looking forward to it!

Both days, but I may be starting an hour or two late on Saturday.

UNLESS... anyone else driving down on Sat has room to bring my daughter down on the way... she goes to Purdue. Right on the way on 231....

then I could be down there Friday night.

I'm out. I decided to go to use the money to go to barber instead since I have to head down that way to pick up a bike. I don't have the money to do both.

Hell, I've done this weekend with a high of 50. The track was still frosted over the first 2 morning sessions. About time to bump Blarney's T4 warning thread....
