First Day in Tilly

Well, the first build day has come to a close. Today was a very long day for everyone since we all travelled from all over to be here for 9am.

When we got here, the facility was not as prepped as we had hoped, but after. Few hours, we were able to get into building the track.

First, a piece of advice when building a track. Always get a good skid steer, and when possible, get one with tracks instead of wheels. Battlefield really came through with the Cat Skid steer they sent us. Thanks Battlefield.

Anyway. After a very long day, most of the track is roughed out, and some parts already rolled out and only needing a finishing touch.

Mission Control (sound, computers, and decoders) is 99% complete. Thanks to The Octagon, we have a serious Sound system this year. And thanks to Jay and Joe at Hardcore, we will have a back up decoder. Basically, we are going to have two complete systems... Just in case. We will even have a back up power system just for the decoders and computers in the event the building looses power. No pauses in the racing for us.

Tomorrow, the drivers stand as pit lane go up first thing, and we work full on to get the track completed with time for dinner and sleep. Friday morning can't come soon enough.

I will still be working on setting up the practice schedule. I have limited time, so I will most likely not be posting them online. It's a dynamic schedule anyway, so anything I post could change at any time. Just know that you will have practice time, and you will have to Marshall.

Just a couple asks for when you get here.
- if you have a camper or trailer, please seek out one of the event staff for a location to park. Management has asked that trailers and campers are set up on the outside edge of the lot first to allow cars to still drive around.
-do not park on any grass. I'm told that there are still ruts In some areas from a couple years ago. No grass
-You will have to register and get a wrist band even before you walk into the building. I know some of you signed up online, but you will still have to check in, sign a waiver and release form, and let us stick a wrist band to the hair on your arm. Please be sure to bring your transponder numbers with you to streamline the process
-do not bring all your gear when coming to register. Get registered, get your wristband, and then worry about getting into the building with your stuff
-my wife is running registration and she is feeling a little under the weather. Please help her out and be prepared. She will really appreciate it.

Oh! One more thing. If you have a Canadian flag, bring it. Let's cover everything with Canadian content.
