Nice to get a response from a Canadian, we're  hoping for a decent showing from our northern neighbors, especially Atlantic Canada, this is ideal for LSR enthusiasts from that area. I hope Scott and all you North of the border types spread the word, as the Canadian dollar is quite strong as of late, makes a trip south much easier than just a few years ago.
I had an unplanned visit to Halifax because of 9/11, our plane missed entry into the US by 15 minutes on that fateful morning.
Long story short, the fabled national hospitality of Nova Scotians once again arose in force for the thousands of temporary refugees, something I will never forget and will always hold dear in appreciation.
I personally look forward to seeing you all.

i have 2 buddies interested in coming too(hopefully they do), not sure on details(secret winter builds???). ones a 12R the other a busa. the 12 may be built with a possible dry shot. the busa was running a 65hp dry shot on stock internals last fall (drag) undetermined if anything will be upgraded. going to mention it to a couple more guys too(once i see them at the drag srip this spring). so possible turbo 10 and nitrous 14....
im trying to talk the old man into converting the slick n bar 12 into something more street/lsr friendly for the event, but he doesnt want to go much faster than 150mph. maybe we can talk him into it once he gets used to the bike on spray this spring
its a 3 hr drive to get to Loring from here in NB, we would be crazy to pass it up grin

Jerry,

How long is your trailer ?  Or are you still in with the Nascar folks so we can borrow a long enough trailer to haul both our cars up and share the fuel ?

My enclosed trailer is only 22ft.

Considering the short time this particular thread has been posted on our forum, it's gotten a lot of views . The entire site has around 28,000 views, so there is a steady stream of interest being generated in our event. I think I remarked on this before, as I believe the majority of attendees will make the decision to show up relatively late compared to long established LSR events the caliber of ECTA and SCTA.
This position from us at the LTA seems predictable, as we are trying to promote the place, but I'd highly recommend to at least make reservations at the Caribou Inn, mention the LTA racers discount, you can always cancel.  http://www.caribouinn.com/flash/
We feel confidant to predict conservatively at least 25 competitors committed at this very early point.

     I know there is lots of interest down here in Texas. In your planning for future events I hope you will think about maybe not haveing it so close to Speedweek. I would love to run up there, 500 ft elevation and 1.5 miles of pavement, but Bonneville is my main deal. Im sure there are lots of others like me, Bonneville first, but would like to run up there also.

"think about maybe not having it so close to Speedweek"
Fred,
I elaborated on this elsewhere on one of these threads on this forum.
The Maine  Inland Wildlife dept has designated the Upland Sandpiper, a bird that breeds on our former AFB, a threatened species, and as such we can not run an event before August. We had originally planned this for the end of June, until we were educated as to this situation.

I thought I remembered there was a reason but forgot,CRS. Of course it seems that Speedweek has been getting earlier and earlier. Used to be the third week in August, I think. My wifes b'day is Aug 16 and I am never there, on the salt. Speedweek is so early this year I may actually be home for her B'day. grin

Charles.......... Sorry for the delay, just now seen your post. My trailer is only 24'. My car is 21 ft long. I have a couple friends that have longer fifth wheel trailers that I may could borrow but my truck is not large enough to pull them. What do you have for a pull truck......... Jerry
