    Eric, no problem with the misunderstanding.. RARA's having a bit of a time right now with their website, it seems from what I can see, in keeping the site up-to-date... someone was doing a redesign and saved the site we all saw a few days ago as http://airrace.org/index2.php. I'll tell ya what, this website stuff is not simple and if you're in charge of an active event site, it's literally at 24/7 deal! I ran the website for Aviation Nation for several years and again, literally, 24/7, book the net if you're on a cruise, check in every night on your then, not-so-smart phone... ensure everything is copacetic kind of deal!

    Sometimes, it bites the best of us on the ass..

    Not only is the high G seating still available, it's selling out fast, and they've increased the daily capicity to 150, from 100... places still available but as the announcers were saying today, if you want to go out there, get your tickets NOW! Selling out fast! Heck of a deal for a day in a place you'd never get any other way.. Not sure, but I think the fee includes food and drink!

    (who else can drink a hundred dollars a day in beer, with eats no less!)

    I'd jump on it if I could afford it!



    You go RARA!!

    No more fence? Was heading out Sunday with EZ UP and a cooler full of tasty adult beverages, Coleman stove and hamburger. You mean there is security out there guarding the entrance?

    Fence: Probably the safest place at Stead. The planes are heading parallel to the fence. Any problems are going to head in that direction unless of course there is different problem in which case the safest place is Truckee. Come on people, it's racing! I know I'm preaching to the choir!
