Roo and I just made our reservations and submitted our volunteer applications. Hopefully we'll get similar assignments as last year (we worked flying finish at one of the Del Sur stages, which allowed us to drive the entire stage prior to the event) and did cone duty at the Super Stage.

Who else is going this year?

I already did my volunteer stuff. I wanna work the drift event I heard they are having this year, but I'll take what ever I can get.

Should be there. Team Blew has yet to be confirmed as Auto X hosts. We'll see.

You would think that the most popular side event would happen again??? I would.

Either way I plan on being there most of Sat.

Yellow schmellow. :wiggle: I walked everywhere I wanted there last year shooting pix. Even laid down under the first jump for a few shots. More like an hour because it was comfortable and a neat view... :twisted: Can't wait for this year and actually being a part of the events while I snap shots :Banane01:

Think they'll actually have any "official" spectator areas this time? I was pissed that I woke up early for nothing. The other events were fun though and got to meet some members here so it was worth it.

According to the website there will be only one spectator area aside from the super stage - at Hungry Valley, and you'll have to pay the $5 park admissions fee and the parking/specator fee of $10 per car. :wtfeyes

Seriously, if you want to see the action up close I would recommend that you look into volunteering. We had sooo much fun last year, even though the weather was cool and rainy. There's just nothing like sitting right at the finish line on one of the stages and have the rally cars zoom on by at triple digit speeds! Plus, you get a ton of free shwag and free food... :biggrin:

Is it the first time you're volunteering? It might take a little longer in that case... I think we only had ours so quickly because we were already in the database from last year, and our team captain contacted us by email and invited us back on his team.

I sure hope so. I'd like to be there again but this time as a part of the event rather then just a guy lurking around the bushes... :Banane01:

Thanks for the heads up regarding the volunteer option. They can't kick you out if you're working. Good opportunity for some great pics too.
