Cool! While the logistics of a new venue can be difficult at times, that place should be pretty awesome to use for a Solo event!

Not sure if we can go off the concrete but that could make for some fun courses.

Kudos to whoever bird-dogged this venue! No doubt took some persuading.

Indeed, I know this has been in the talks for so time.

John Evans and Ahren Renner have worked out a course, but are still finalizing the parking, paddock, and entrance and exits. Lot's of security for this place so the first morning might be a little confused, but the course will be fun with a significant elevation change. Please plan on coming early and having fun.

It goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway (I have a remarkably firm grasp of the obvious) everyone needs to be on best behavior to ensure the likelihood of a return invitation.

So what was the facility like? I've seen the satellite photos of the grounds, and a couple quick videos, but what was it like? Was there enough room for a good and challenging course?

I'm hoping to get out to some Reno autox's next year.
