HA! Beat me to it.

Last year we had a great Rover gathering.

Let us know who's attending. So we can update the Database.

Thanks!!!

Exclamation

Anyone planning on coming should send a PM to rrc.swb (aka Pedro) or sign up on the OCC mailing list to add you to the sign up sheet/database. This is to make sure we have enough teachers/groups.
Provide:
- rig (year/model/mods if any)
- how many people (including you)
- days you'll be attending (Sat only or Sat + Sun)
- is you want to attend the 101 or the 201
- what damage you are willing to withstand on your rig (from "not even a scratch" to "sure I can flip it if it makes me a better driver next time")

Don't be shy to be upfront! There is NO shame in not wanting to scratch the paint of your brand new RRS ( or beaten Series)!
But we've got to know in advance to make sure we have something -planned- for everyone attending. Last minute plans are the worst IMHO.

I am in

- rig (year/model/mods if any) = Unknow. Unknown / stock ( Pedro's Trike )
- how many people (including you) = Too fat to carry a passenger
- days you'll be attending (Sat only or Sat + Sun) = Sat
- is you want to attend the 101 or the 201 = YEAP
- what damage you are willing to withstand on your rig (from "not even a scratch" to "sure I can flip it if it makes me a better driver next time") I want to roll that biatch down Pinnacle

Any questions?

LMAO
