Great! Thank you.

The 2-day event on East/West looks great! Looking forward to that! Good job, people! Hope we have a strong turnout.

Looks like a good year.....now, if we could only try another track.

Yeah, I saw the East/West combo. I was thinking Sears or Leguna.

Both are prohibitively expensive and weekend dates unobtainable. Then there is the fact of getting Reno region members to drive 6 hours to Laguna (which on a side note once again appears to be going through it's own turmoils as Monterey County has said it is parting ways with SCRAMP).

Your best bet if you can't attend/qualify for an SFR Regional race event, is to keep an eye on location calendars for track days by other organizations like Hooked on Driving, Trackmsters etc. They have a good following and I think it would be hard and high risk for Reno Region SCCA to compete with them.

We would need to charge in the neighborhood of $500 per driver to run at either Laguna or Sonoma - since we struggle to get a car count above 50.

If you guys need help promoting some events let us know.
A basic flyer for each event posted on facebook track groups in Ca would gather a decent amount of people I bet.

Plenty of ways to promote, we just need to do it.

What about partnering up with SFR for some W2W? That may also help draw a crowd.
