I was seriously considering that school over the winter. $2500 now seems like a heck of a deal compared to what I've started getting used to - mental drills while picking up bike parts from all over the track and the grass

They don't do much this time of year anyway. Spring is there biggest run starting around March, with a couple of schools sprinkled into January and February. I'll give Freddie a call and see what the plan is.

This is too bad. For the first time since starting trackdays, 2009 was a serious consideration in hopes of planning for the school. I hope things work out for everyone in the organization.

What do the internet and Channel 11 have in common? They are both a window to the world; put it out there and do not be surprised who will see it.
