Default ***2012 Autocross at Barber Motosports Park**

The autocross with PBOC will be on the 17th and 18th of November.

We need volunteers to help with cone shagging. If you would like to work or learn how to setup the timing equipment, then this is a good time to be around.

The schedule is a little difficult, because we are at the mercy of the Instructors from PBOC. Basically if you are going to work the event, you will need to be at the second tier of the paddock by 7:45am and work until around 5:00 or 5:30pm.

We will need a few Instructors to help out with the Novices from PBOC, basically if you have helped C and Sara with the Novices at our events, then you could Instruct a novice at this event.

We will be providing lunch for cone shaggers and Instructors, as well you can run the autocross course as much as you want. We will also be paying $25 a day.

I will be taking a list of names, so if you want to work the event, you must be on this list.

Cone Workers/ up to 5/
1 Nick Vagner
2 Heath Patterson
3 Griffin Burkett
4 Delanie Calhoun
5

Instructors/ up to 4/ The Novice Car Control Clinic will run from 9:15 to 10:15
1 Chaisit Tongsuvone
2
3 Nick Vagner
4 Mike Cavanaugh

The autocross will open to NON PBOC drivers at 9:00am on both Saturday and Sunday. The autox will be both days. We will do $1 per run. Or $5 for 7 runs. Or $10 for 20. Or $20 for unlimited runs. We will also be taking donations to support Cancer Research at UAB, which is the PBOC charity for their event. All donations will need to be cash or check.

The schedule is fairly liquid, and maybe changed without notice. The PBOC drivers will have priority to the course as it is their event. However, those of you that attended last year can attest, the event is a boat load of fun. You will have the time to run as much as you want, make changes, then run again as much as you want. It really is a very good time.

I'll be there like last time, wherever you need me.

Are they going to need a classroom instructor again?

Possibly, I should be hearing from Pete within the next week about the plans.

There is no stated driving time. So if you wanted to drive for just a little while, then leave, that is fine. There is no need to work, just to drive.

At this point, I am only looking for those that are willing to work both days, and if things go like last year, there is plenty of time to drive more then most people are willing too.

Thanks Mike. You will be a great asset to the Novices that will be there. I am fully expecting the days to go similar to the schedule from last year. Should be the same amount of driving, plenty of seat time.

I will work cones for the day. Sign me up! (Daniel Bailey). And also how will I be able to run as much as I want if I am working. Are we going to be doing shifts or what?

The main reason we are having this event, is to help out PBOC instruct their novices, and make a few bucks by having a really laid back event in a very nice arena. Because of the size of the area, we generally only need about 3 people to really pick up the cones (so having 5 or so, allows for shifts). This is very laid back, and outside of the PBOC group, we didn't have but maybe 20 or so people last year that came out specifically to run.

We will generally have quite a bit of time of just "hanging out" and in that time, believe me, you can pretty much run as many times as you want. If you are going to work, please understand that your main reason for being there is to fetch cones, and do whatever we need to make the event happen. If you are wanting to run the course a whole bunch (meaning 60 to 80 times a day or more) then just plan on driving, and you can hang out and fetch a cone or two if you want while you are hanging out, but we will not be providing lunch and pay to those that are doing that.

I want to work both days, I don't care for running a lot I was just wondering, I would be more than happy just to help and drive every now and then. My car has taken enough abuse this season anyway lol.

You will be forced to let other people (other scca worker type people) drive your car, just a heads up.

I'll definitely be there to take some runs on Saturday. Of course, I won't mine stepping in for a cone shagger or instructor while I'm there.

I just realized that we have inventory here at work that Saturday! So count me out for instructing that morning. I will swing by if we don't get done too late. Sorry.
