Event Chair Wrap-Up PE #8

Points Event #8 on August 17, 2014 was yet another great event for KYSCCA. Even though the weather wasn’t the best, we had a great turnout at 71 drivers. Both heats ran smoothly and without incident. We had some under tents, some with umbrellas, some wearing the always flattering trash bag and some tough guys who just didn’t care and walked around in the pouring rain (Matt Coleman). We saw the Coleman brothers (who are both used to not having any traction) in the very wet first heat wrestle their Corvette’s around to some impressive times. Definitely the passenger seat to be in if you were brave enough. The Second heat was dominated by Ray Dsouza in his 2009 Mazda Speed 3 AKA “front wheel drive family car” taking FTD and PAX.

Course design by Shawn Lambert was an exceptional addition to his list of exceptionally fun list of courses. Perfect for the conditions Mother Nature provided. The cone fetching was at a minimum which was very important due to the chalk lines being washed away in the first heat. Thank you Shawn.

After getting there at 5:30 am to help unload trailer, and doing whatever I could to help out, I realized how much actually goes into putting on one of these events. There is a hand full of guys and gals that show up when it’s still dark so that everything is ready to go when the rest of us show up. Without them, we wouldn’t have such great events. I can’t thank them enough.

I also want to thank everyone for having me as the event chair. It was a great experience. Looking forward to Points Event #9 on August 31, 2014!
