    I would like to volunteer to help on the Sunday, Joe. I'm afraid that on the Saturday Opal and I have to go to Peterborough to spank Bill and Ted at the Spring Runoff Rally.

    "Yeah, I want this guy as my instructor! He doesn't take no #*&! from cones!!"





    (I kid... afterall, if anyone had a picture of my near-roll at the DDT Autoslalom, I doubt that students would get in a car with me that readily! My philosophy is that I want an instructor who has been off a lot and knows how to avoid that!)

    That picture may be in safekeeping for a time when it has real value, Steve!

    Then again, I might qualify as a "qualified" instructor - "qualified" being defined as "been off a lot". I know that there are no short pine trees on the lot at the Powerade Centre.

    I'm volunteering for both days, and I'll have plenty of stories to tell about how the oh-so-expert-spank-my-??? rally crew of Steve and Opal were late to check point 1 by a full week.

    SPRING RUNOFF IS APRIL 18th STEVE!

    All together now,

    Unfortunately, it seems we've just reinforced the driver vs. navigator dichotomy.

    Re: 2009 Autoslalom School

    Uhmmm. Good! They took my advice and changed the date of the rally to avoid the Autoslalom school. Good stuff!

    (Note: Autoslalom school now conflicts with BMW club school.)

    Yes, G1 would work since there will be a licensed driver with them at all times.
