I guess if that Pizza place by the east gate , The Rendezvous, is still open, we'll have to rename our get together on Saturday night at the Caribou Inn. We had originally titled it "LSRendezvous", a Maine version of The Salt Talks at Speedweek. In order not to confuse, we need another name. Like,we really need another lame name game here.
That info on http://www.loringairforcebase.com/ is great. I'll contact The Lady, ask numerous dumb questions. Amazing considering how long the place has been shut down how the former residents keep in touch. Now they get a reason for a Reunion !!!
Hang in a little longer, our Rulebooks should be available very soon, and we'll officially put up the Website with all the poitinent infos.

 Mostly for the benefit of those of you that aren't aware yet, this is the address   (below) for the Loring Timing Association and 
information for our event to be held in August this year.We recommend  reading  all
the info available, and we hope it answers enough  questions.  Pre
Registrations can be submitted now, or if you are  unfamiliar with Land Speed Racing
, you can first order a Rulebook which has  most of what info  you need to
prepare to attend and run your vehicle.
We will soon also add a Aerial based map picture of the site to familiarize
everybody with the facility.
We will also add a News icon for regular updates on available 
accommodations and dining facilities in the area.
Directions are also forthcoming .
In the meantime, have patience if we've forgotten anything or confused an 
issue, we will straighten it all out very shortly.
We thank all of you that kept the faith waiting and watching our  progress.
We again  openly thank our Mentors at The ECTA for their ongoing  help ,
this probably could not have been done without them. And if it's a  failure,
blame them. LOL.

I'd just like to reiterate how the LTA would really appreciate if more entrants would pre register. It would help us gauge attendance so we would not be caught short on porta potties . Seriouslier, we really need to get the best idea possible, for volunteer recruiting, security issues, and all that non-racing stuff that has to be done.
The more stuff that's pretty-well planned for gives us more time to ourselves to maybe even race our own cars, which was the original point of this venture.
You save $25, get a head start on paperwork and tech, and endear yourselves to  the people working the registration center ( card table ? )
The only idea we have at this time is the thread on this list and the ones reserved rooms at the CARIBOU INN. (remember, mention the LTA racers discount when you call)

 Minor Updates

Our "AsphalTalks" Saturday night at the Caribou Inn will be BarSide as opposed to Poolside. Seems the pool area is super hot in summer as all the inside facing rooms ACs dump into that area and the ventilation is not up to removing the excess heat. I guess they designed it for the Maine Winter,only. The new location is located next to the lobby, or the bar.  Room for only 275, so come early. yeah, right.

Trying to gauge the weather a week in advance is not reliable, but we are keeping tabs ,especially late in the event. Rain Saturday, long day Sunday and vice versa.
 
Those of you still without rooms, keep checking the Caribou Inn for cancellations, there were three in the last week, according to the desk person I spoke with today.

Thank You Ken,
I'm out of here 8ish tomw morn, any important questions ( with short answers ) do it now.
As you  Volunteers will be arriving at different times, hunt me down on the runway and we'll discuss what you are comfortable with, and then I'll assign you something entirely opposite.
I really seriously appreciate the different kind of volunteer at a first event like this, the possibility of being stuck someplace is more likely in this situation.
I'm really committed to making this as enjoyable for everybody, including non volunteers, or just a little help, or  the 24/7 dedicated LSR Good Guys. Everybody knows who they are, the perennial always there people, always with a smile .
We have cell phones, two different sets of radios, and I think optimistically enough people to run this with a good time to be had by all.

I usually avoid the commercial weather sites - because they're commercial, and because they carry ads -- which take time to load.  I want to see the weather, not what phone is on sale at AT&T and what blog has spent money to advertise, etc.

The NOAA weather site is my choice, and so that's the one I refer to when I can.  It doesn't have a few of the features that the comm'l ones have, though, and that's why we don't have NOAA weather on the home page of landracing.com - yet.  Soon, I hope.

   It's starting to look like I will not be able to make this event. Last week we got hit by Lightening and being off the grid and being on battery power I had to buy a new inverter. That came yesterday and I will install it today.
   Tuesday my wife's car quit and my code reader got nothing from the ECU. The car had to be trucked 100 miles to the dealer. Yesterday they worked on it and are going to replace the coil packs and said they hoped that only the fuse was blow to the ECU, will get an update today. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I just want to say hello to everyone, some may know me from a few of the mile events. I am looking forward to running at the Maine venue. Won't make it till Sunday.  Its taken a few years but I have shaken the hate everyone first attitude that came from 16 years of policing and being shot and so forth.

Getting back into Church has helped. Looking forward to making some new friends and of course going faster than I have before. Nevertheless best wishes to all.
