With a lot of the hotel rooms already booked, looks like its a good time to start accepting pre-registrations.   :-D

One prerequisite of pre registration may me..Do you have a room reserved yet ??

Crown Park Inn, north end of Caribou, almost walking distance to the fast food strip, has rooms. I can neither recommend or criticize the place, if you stay there let us know after the meet how it was. Mixed reviews is about it, but it isn't expensive.
The base Authorities may be open to making "The Loring Inn", 40 rooms,on base, available in the future. It was deactivated last year. Would be perfect for us, we'd only need to make a breakfast available in the morning. It's all by itself in the woods.

Has it been suggested?, or may I suggest, that timing lights also be put at the mile mark.

I believe it could be a benefit  for not only tune/dial in, but will also let Loring be included in the fast growing Mile racing.  Miami is already to do 2 sets of timing lights at their next even, so it is possible and cost effective.

Believe me, I know the big draw for loring is the 1.5miles, but adding this to the event will have a lot of benefit.

what are everyone's thoughts.... should I have started a new subject thread??

I would pay extra for a set of lights at 1mi; great idea, Bill!

?Scott, what happen to your post that stated you support the mile timing lights?
Their not going to make YOU pay ALL the extra if there is any.
Did you change your mind? There are to many good reasons to have lights at the mile AND 1.5.  What would be any against it???

I don't think the mile times should be records, just the 1.5.  The mile speed would be more informational, like an exit speed on the salt.  Or the other way around, mile records and 1.5 brag rights.
What are peoples thoughts on this? (But don't let the record discussion influence lights at the mile and 1.5)

Bill,

I like the idea of lights at the Mile  and the 1.5 Mile.

The draw of LTA is the 1.5 mile... they are the only ones doing that and I like the idea of  1.5 mile LTA Records.  Having lights at the 1 mile mark as well can give good data for us and since several other venues are running a "paved mile" this would allow some test and tune comparisons. (we know none of the Mile tracks are equal and they each have there own personalities) but it would be nice to see both trap speeds.

Just my 1.5 cents....

OK guys...good idea but it means half a mile of wire and if there is a problem with those lights, then you have to stop racing and drive half a mile to fix it, then back to the tower. Maybe when wireless gets better!?!!?
