    personaly id reckon it would be better on saturday so that gives everyone sat night to get on it, and then chill on sunday before having to head back home. An earlier start would have been good as well. But overall it was well run.

    Mate that only stops you having a go at him, not OSH etc.
    You can not contract outside the law of the land, and if the law happens to deem the organiser liable no waiver is going to help.

    i spectated as a spectator often does, and whilst spectating began specutating....(actually, i didn't, but hey....who's counting?)

    Van idea = great! Could drop off/pick up marshalls at the same time
    Map = yep! including suggested lines, braking points etc
    Noob's = be there early to walk the track with an experienced rider
    Flags = a white one, (not being racialist here), a chequered one, a red one
    Groups = fast guys/chicks 1st. (they really made a difference cleaning up lines thru' the Sweeper!)
    Saturday = yep, like the sound o' dat!
    Weather = 'ave a word with the bloke upstairs
    Food = thankyou for organising that, 'cos i hadn't!

    Good on you Frosty for wanting another crack at it....you masochist you!

    The scrutineering and paperwork etc seemed to take no time at all. The only problem I had was I turned up at the track without any cash and had to shoot back into Taupo with the bike all taped up hoping there weren't any cops out.

    A Saturday would suit me better that's for sure. Ride down after work on Friday, do the track day Saturday then have a get together that night. Sunday, wander back to Hammytown.

    the Marshal towers were hollow, hopefully by next time, there might be a floor to stand on rather then needing to perch on the edges or we can take planks of wood to stand on. Not any ones fault other then the track owner.

    Just what I was thinking.....
    the atmosphere was brilliant, and I saw people pitching in all over the place to help out here and there as and when needed.
    Cheap at twice the price.

    I was sorta thinking it(the scruitineering thing) would speed up getting out on the track really,more than anything......but I can see the point too.
    Saturday would suck ,some have to work saturday,and others spend the time organising trucks etc,and getting the bike ready.....
    At the end of the day,the only real complaint I can think of is lack of track time, but of course most of this was out of Frosty's hands.
    Now,how about restrictors for those bloody thous......

    How bout havn it on the saturday, and base the non track time round a particular camping ground. That way, could be like a KBer rally and track day. Would give those just along to watch a better chance to meet a few of the rest when no one is running round gettn ready and riding. As a large lump of the riders would stay there on the fri night, there is an opertunity (sp) to get some of the scrutineering done and awnser any noob questions
    There is no dark side of the moon, really, as a matter of fact. Its all dark...

    Ummm thanks I think. Agree whole heartedly...

    I had a ball despite the lack of track time. Great to catch up with the some of the original KB crowd again....and would ride down again in the pouring rain just for another such meet.

    i flagged the last group in early... yes it was 30seconds early.. sorry about that..
    but did you notice that the sesions were UPTO 15 min each? .... not the 10 they were at the beging?

    but i would also like to thank you ALL for being responsible out there... made our job so much easyer!!!

    think i need a black flag??????


    what a ride so far!!!!
