Are we going to go back to two Saturdays or still a Friday and a Saturday? If Friday and Saturday, one of the nights would need to be the 11th or the 25th.

Just throwing it out there. The earlier I get it on the calendar the more likely I can attend.

The idea is to stick with the one Friday and one Saturday per month (unless David and/or the group agrees we need to change back or to something different).

I'm sure we'll talk more about February dates at the next AA GTG this Saturday Jan, 29th.

And I agree that the sooner we schedule it the sooner every can plan around the dates.

It would be cool, for those in power, to set up a google calendar or calendar.ics feed...

If the events get posted on the google calendar, we can all add that into our smarty phones and personal calendars.

GTG dates for February?

Feb 12th and Feb 26th?

Just to clarify how it works, we usually try to schedule opposite to Washtenaw/LAZER weekends so that people can participate in both series. I'm not sure that we have that many people racing at Washtenaw right now (Jason, maybe Carlos?) so it's been less of an issue, but Washtenaw is also the 12th and 26th of next month.

The idea is to stick with the one Friday and one Saturday per month (unless David and/or the group agrees we need to change back or to something different).

Correct - Friday/HFAY and Saturday/Dojo is the plan for this current season unless everyone decides they hate Fridays or something. :)

It would be cool, for those in power, to set up a google calendar or calendar.ics feed...

If the events get posted on the google calendar, we can all add that into our smarty phones and personal calendars.

We have Calendar (http://mini-zracer.com/forums/calendar.php) functionality in the forums though I don't do a good job of publishing our dates, and unfortunately I don't think it does .ics/RSS/anything useful. I don't really want to split off into a google calendar (regardless of what your CR-48 brain slug tells you! :p:D) but overall I do like the idea and will have a think about the best way to approach it - cool! :)

I was just thinking google calendar because that seems to integrate into all the smarty phones.

ICS more so though surely? Will see what I can come up with...I wrote a custom wrapper for ICS/google cal for a client not so long ago, though in .NET but could port to php no problem - but want to check if latest version of forum software already has it, as it's a bit of a no-brainer now that you mention it. :)

YoYo-Pete

Yeah... ICS is all that's really needed. Would be cool, but would have to make sure the GTG dates are there. (I suspect that's the more difficult piece. lol)

Huh. What's all this about?

It has always been opposite of the other events.

So the dates should be the 5th and 19th.

19th I'm not free at all and I think the 4th (Friday HFAY) is too short of notice considering it's the 3rd now...

J, that's true, but how many of our members are running dirt? I think Jason and maybe Carlos? Kevin? Are you? There's a good dozen and a half of us that aren't, and of those I just mentioned, many haven't shown up much lately? :)

19th I'm not free at all and I think the 4th (Friday HFAY) is too short of notice considering it's the 3rd now...

Arg - I was just about to post it as official for the 11 and 19th - anyone got a problem with the 12th and 18th then? :rolleyes::)

Jerrymor

I like the 12th and 18th
I think the 18 would be a good turn out for us "dirt guys". especially if it is the big track.

I LIKE BIG TRACKS!!!!:D

Re: 18th...

My day will start really early on the 19th. If we can actually do stuff quickly that day it would be appreciated, I'd like to get home around midnight.

My *IDEAL* dates would be Saturday the 12th, Friday the 25th... but that's up to everyone.

It may seem that way, but actually it's up to me! :p:D Last weekend of the month is out. 12/18 or 11/19 are the choices, and pretty much 90% set on 12/18 unless a bunch of people post saying that won't work today. :)

Then we do HFAY races Friday 2/18 at 8pm.

I hate to cause trouble but Carlos, Jason and I would prefer big track on the 18th. We should be able to make it that date and HFAY is lame!!! compared to big track.

Who, who and who? Oh, those guys that used to race w/ us? :p Seriously though, if you'd all have been there last time you could have brought it up when we were talking dates etc.! :o Does that mean you can't make it to the 12th? The idea was supposed to be that HFAY w/b on the shorter Friday session since it s/b less setup/teardown vs. big track. Oh crud, did swapping to 12/19th result in a conflict w/ dirt? What time does that finish, you know we'll still be going after?! :)

Shorter day?:D

We had been finishing close to twelve on the big track nights and the HFAY race went until 2:30.

Setting up and putting down the track is the shortest part of the night.

I should be there on the 18th, but not until about 10. Save me a spot in the d main.

Well, that was our first HFAY race in forever so it took an abnormally long time to get things set up/figured out etc. But you may be right as far as the actual racing taking longer actually since we have to do both directions and more mains, even if they are a lot shorter vs. our enduros. Especially when people don't plan ahead w/ their batteries etc.... What time does dirt finish, you should just come by after tomorrow!? :)
