Mr Wanner: do you need volunteers for event #1???
« on: January 26, 2009, 04:24:09 AM »
Gary (TRNorBRN) and I will be driving up from Texas to arrive Thu pm or Fri early am, hopefully with JohnnyCheese and Mike (Texanzone).

TeamFatAss will be bringing bucket o' bolts bikes to run, but TFA also likes to help out where we can.

If you need help say the word!

You have to ask? There isn't an event anywhere that couldn't use double the volunteers that they have.

Of course volunteers come in the same bell shaped curve as any thing else. Some volunteers you want to handcuff because they are so valuable, other you just want to handcuff. :evil:
Well, it used to be Los Angeles . . . 50 miles north of Fresno now.
Just remember . . . It isn't life or death.
It's bigger than life or death! It's RACING.

Handcuffing volunteers?

slap-slap!
OK, I feel normal again.

Don't know nothin' 'bout no stinkin' volunteers....

Wish I could make it up there - I'd be happy to do my thing (what ever that is) with your vols, too.  You're just too close to Bonneville and I'm going for my first B'ville experience.

Best of luck

We've had a steady stream of volunteers for our inaugural event in Maine, and that is a relief. We have a good idea of who'll be doing a couple jobs, but will  clarify that in the next few months. Ideally we'd like to have our core crew multi-skilled in different jobs, so we can both rotate jobs and give everybody a break to be able to really enjoy a long weekend. But,we turn nobody away,ever, as a volunteer !!!
On an ironic note, I retired from the FDNY over 12 years ago, where they used to call me Bob, or Bobby, or Bwana, or Borg, or Crash, but never Mr.Wanner. AND, as a lot  of the guys in this sport are old, we don't call each other Mr, either.
I assume its a term of respect due to your appreciation of what we've accomplished with LTA ? To give you an out, when you meet BobbyHotRods , Bob Jepson , my partner in this, call him Mr.Jepson, he's really old. And talks funny,too.
^^^^^ All in jest, no bosses at LTA/09, just co-conspirators, with a mutual interest, SPEED !!!!
Dan Stokes !!! Sure will miss you up there, could use a Volley Whip, lol.. If you reconsider due to the rain that's forecast, or lack of rooms, or the lines, or............let us know ?
I don't want to sound like a broken record, but this will be The LSR event of 2009 !

I'm posting this on all the LTA threads.
A little reminder to remember SSS Jon W and how kind he is to maintain this beautiful thing, Landracing .com for all of us.
Consider patronizing all the advertising sites here (hits) and when you meet him, let him know how you appreciate him.   
Also ask him how he got that Hot woman to marry him.
BOB, I'm thankful, big time,  W

I'm sure Al will appreciate this opportunity to get back in starting line shape after he is healed up!
