BIG, BIG PROBLEM!
I had planned to have the tables and chairs out in the infield. Unfortunately, we have someone coming who is bringing a large inflatable water slide in case it gets too hot for the kids.
The best spot is where the table was going to be. Now I don't know what to do. :lol:

If anyone has a pop-up canopy, it would be a good idea to bring it.
And chairs for adults.
And BYOB. We'll have a couple drinks for each kid, but probably not enough for the whole afternoon.
Alcohol is OK for the adults, just be sure to keep things kid-friendly and be safe to drive at the end of the day.

And if everything is going great and momentum takes us past 5:00, I see no reason we couldn't keep driving, or swimming, or whatever. We'll just play it by ear...

11:00 - 5:00? tomorrow

The first race is in the books and it was a great day. A big thanks to Vindog and all his hard work getting the track prepared for racing. I had done alot of preparing myself, EXCEPT, I forgot to charge the camera. So heres the few pics I managed before it died.

Later in the day, Baby Danica and her Jeep went head to head with Little Vindog and they raced like two little speed demons. Baby Danica took the first race and then Little Vindog came back and passed her in the second race. She couldn't catch him.
A BIG thank you to Vindog and his staff for the event. The hard work and the planning was evident from the beginning. It was a great time and those that werent there, really missed out.

Hi - my name is Don! My family and I attended the 'Woodstock Nationals' this past Saturday at Vince's place ~ what a FUN TIME! My 3 yo son Ben drove a stock Kawasaki Ninja ATV while my 6 yo daughter Abby drove a stock pink Barbie Jeep. My wife Sara put together a nice montage of the event that I thought y'all might enjoy:

Looks like you guys had a blast! Sorry we missed it, but a last-minute invite to the lake threw a wrench in the plans.

Don brought an inflatable water slide. The kids were loving it, and the creek, then the pool. It was almost more of a carnival than a road rally. Your kids would have loved it, then had plenty of time to hit the lake. We're counting on you making it next time...

Im hoping to have it atleast 2 if not 3 times a year. But since it isnt my house, we may have to have a southern and a northern race.

Perhaps the end of July and the end of September?

Time to start thinking of another rally in August or September. I know MS1120 won't be around the first week of August. Any other suggestions or restrictions?

Is there any interest in doing another meet this year. I'm located west of Atlanta but would love to get together and trade ideas and let the kids ride and have a good time.

We can host another. We have fewer stumps and more grass than this time last year.
