    Hmmm, let's see, it's early July, to the 2nd week of Dec, that's exactly 6months.

    Yep, that should be plenty of time to pull it together :rolleyes

    WTF? 6 months to go and all we have is "so and so heard"? This is fucking stupid.

    I doubt anybody here is going to argue with you about that but don't you remember how it went last time? It was super last minute! I didn't think it was going to happen until I got onto that dammed boat.....I still am surprised that it came off as well as it did.

    I guess I have a short memory, but I don't remember it being this bad. Was it like this? :confused

    :lol3

    the riders list was issued Oct. 24 - about 6 weeks before the race...... I hadn't even signed up until a few weeks before that according to the old thread. So if last times' time table has anything to do with it, we've still got a solid three months to screw around!

    :evil

    here's a direct quote from you, Mikey!

    Anybody have any news about the race?!?!? I ran into a guy in Chapparal last weekend with a Catalina 2010 shirt and he seemed to think it was off - but he didn't say why

    My dad has a nifty scar on one of his legs from pegs like those, crashed at Ascot back in the fifties.

    I spoke to my Island "Insider" last night. Event is still on. The head guy has been concentrating on his son competing at Loretta Lynn's and getting into Pro MX. After Loretta's he will be on the GP full time. Current plan is to have Thurs. as a practice day, Friday a Pro MX, Sat & Sun GP.

    He had problems with the website but has a new one that has yet to be updated from the last race:

    http://www.thecatalinagrandprix.com/

    I also heard some disturbing news about D-37 clubs that helped put the race on last time all but holding the event hostage by wanting huge money (six figures) along with free entries and all expenses paid for everyone. Pretty crazy seeing as the promoters lost money last time. I see getting course workers and help as being the biggest hurdle this time.
