Do we know what the fee will be for extra arm bands for more crew members?  Will there be a fee for spectators?

What's the Mojave course length?

Edit: I see in another post that the course is 12,500 feet, with a 132 foot trap at the mile.

SCTA email say go to this site and inticate whether you'd go to a Mojave-based asphalt event
http://www.scta-bni.org/mojave-mile-survey.html

I went there and "voted", it didn't seem to take my info?

BTW:  i have run Mike Border's Mojave event several times on my NA bike (220 in the Mile). 
Great venue, Mike & his team are a pleasure to deal with.

Entropy, when I followed the link from JoAnn's email it wouldn't take my vote either.  But then I went direct to the SCTA site and it then took my vote OK.

Maybe you should just send an email to JoAnn to make sure you get included.  I know she's very busy, but....

Does anyone know if you can ride back to the pits or will it be like Bonneville and you have to be towed back?

Get off the stove Grandad.  You're too old to be riding the range.

I guess that depends on who running the event?  Is SCTA running it or is MKM?

Would be the Scta Mojave Mile.
Scta / Bill Lattin would be Race Director. With MKM doing the Timing, be much involved in Driver Safety- Driver Meetings-
Emergency Services and Procedures- helping us to run the event as much as we want him too.
MKM has been doing it for many Years and has all the Know How of this event.   
But it would be a SCTA event and therefor all Scta rules, class specifications & regulations must be followed, as at any other of
our events.
Many of our vehicles are not really street driven, I am sure all vehicles would need to be towed or pushed to the starting
line and back to the pits.
As many of these issues and questions arise, our Tech Committee and Board would make the decision, with guidence and
recomendations from MKM.

But at this point we are still in the Survey state and the way it looks, there are not enough people interested in such an event.

We are still in need of at least 25 to 35 more competitors to say " Yes we want to run at this event ". Survey closes Sun 5 pm PST.
If we can't find them, that means we can't break at least even and therefor it will not happen.
We realize some people had problems with filling out the survey and some are not sure if their info was completed.
Would suggest for everybody who is not sure and "Wants to Run" to send a confirmation e-mail to our office.
office@scta-bni.org  .
You must put the following info:
Name
Vehicle # (Including "B" if you have a bike)
Email
Phone
Pre-Entrant for SpeedWeek - Yes or No
Do you want to participate at Mojave Mile - Yes or No

Further there are many who have not even heard, that we are trying to have a "Scta Mojave Mile" event.
If you are interested in having it and realize the Fragile nature of our Bonneville and El Mirage Lakebed, I suggest to start making
some phone calls. When was the last time we had an opportunity like this ?
Thanks,
Mike

Unless SCTA begs to differ, I see no reason to prevent driving back to the pits as long as you can positively control your vehicle by yourself (to include stopping and starting), since we will employ traffic controls on Taxiway Alpha (the main parallel taxiway to the runway that will be used by all) to hold you briefly should we need to hold for an aircraft takeoff/landing.  Having said that, let me stress that aircraft will NOT be using "our" runway, instead they would land on one of the two crossing runways.

I think I read that buying arm bands was not happening.

Then again, I may be dreaming.

Speaking of driving... anyone driving through Wichita Kansas on their way to the event?  The Bonneville suite at my house is available for an overnight stay along the way... The price... tote a wheel that is in a 18x18x6 box to the Britts attending the event.
email or pm me

Freud,
As long as they are Crew members, we will have plenty of additional armbands available.
Each team would get 5 armbands and they can buy more for $10.00 each.

But at this point, it looks like we may not have enough interest in the event. As of Yesterday, we need at least 25 more
entries to break even.
Make some calls guys, if you want this event to happen.

This is a great opportunity to tune your vehicle at a decent altitude prior to WOS or the next El Mirage meet, especially for the motorcycle guys.
