Overall, seemed to be less spectators this year and maybe less racers?  Anyone else notice this?

Yes we did notice that Terry.

Being a newbie to the salt I take on board the comments about locating people in the pits.  My phone decided not to work on the salt so I was just hoping that the registration trailer would be able to let me know what number they were running.  I could then keep an eye out while cycling the pits.  Next year I'll be more prepared.

I hope you bought a program.  Over 500 pre-entered vehicles were listed along with their class and other info.  Most had pictures, too.

That is why I like being there on Thursday. Scope out the pits, get to say hi to old and new pals. Get it out of the way early.

I was meant to get a program as part of the international BNI membership.  I collected the rule book and tube (with pin and patch) from the trailer but no program, maybe they'd sold out when I picked these up on the Sunday morning?  I did email JoAnn about the program a week or so after SW so will drop a reminder.  Having the program would certainly have helped in the hunt.

Hi all,

Just a bit late, but it's OK... So all my thanks to all the girls and guys at the SCTA/BNI, plus others... that made it possible for me and me team to be there...

It was most enjoyable, we had a great time, had a good qualifier run that we couldn't back up... No complaints whatsoever!!!

Already modifying the bike heavily for next year...

So maybe 3dr time lucky???

And looking forward to seeing you all there again.
