As I sit here having "Fest Withdrawals" I am thinking why don't we try to put together a mid-winter GTG maybe in Phoenix or southern California. I know that many western members who can't make the BG fest would be up for this!
If there is any interest in this, I would appreciate any and all input from all of you western members who didn't get to play
with all of us crazies in BG. This could be the start of something really cool! C'mon everyone, chime in! :ity:

I'd go....if we can have similar events...and it is "winter enough" to justify getting out of the midwest. :cool:

Spring Mountain in Vegas or Firebird near Phoenix would be my choices.

I'm a go for either location Jim!!

If you want, I will check with Pro****Sports at Firebird and see what they can do!

I got with them thru a local Vette club and they let 12 of us do a DE as an instructional group that ran with the red group!
Classroom instruction, two twenty min stints w/instructor, and then two more alone. Red group is passing on straights only, trail braking discouraged, yada yada!! They have three different tracks that they alternate with other groups i.e. cycles, car clubs. Two ~1.2 mile and a 1.9 that has a 1/2 mile straight because it includes the drag strip.
No competition for Spring Mountain, but a lot of fun packed into a day for ~a C-note!!
The Indians own all the casino's and I have no idea about room rates, cuz winter IS the snowbird season and the rates go UP!!!!
I'm only favoring Phoenix because I LIVE HERE!! :rofl: :rofl:
Honest!!
Plus we could Definitely work in some Golf!!

Great to see all the responses, and it seems like Phoenix or Vegas would work for everyone. My personal preference would be Phoenix, only because our family has a house there and it would be pretty easy for us to stay there as long as necessary. As far as a time frame, I think mid February would be the perfect time, far enough after the holidays for everyone to recover from "credit card abuse" due to holiday gift giving, and the weather in the southwestern US is usually pretty good during that time! I am asking the mods to take a look at this idea and give their input. IMHO, this could be the start of something great that would give all of our western members the oppurtunity to experience the wonderful madness that the fest and this great site is all about!
Keep them cards and letters coming everyone! :thumb: :thumb:

My thoughts......if even get a chance to rest.....I'm not doin' anything but drinkin' and eatin'. That is if I'm not %$#&in' or sleepin'!!! I really would like to come out west though. I think the 2006 Oceanfest is more my speed in the winter. Hmmmm.......is this an NCM event? Don't we have to wait for them to tell us what crappy locations to go to and what crappy places to race!?!?:roll:

Oh! I actually typed that didn't I?? Guess the therapy isn't workin'.:lol:


Can't wait to get bitch-slapped by a mod for that one.:lol:
