  1. Allan Ball -1704. Keeping 71 please.
  2. Great stuff. Time to get new tires from Costco. FYI, they have a $70 cash card rebate on Bridgestone's that runs until mid April!
  3. I think this is a great idea. Recently, I've had a few opportunities to complement drivers on their cars (or wheels), and it would have been great to have a card to pass on to them with some info about autocross. While shopping the other day, I wrote down the webpage address for a new BRZ owner, but again, it would have been better to have pulled out a card and handed it to him. I will certainly take a bunch of cards!
  4. Another BMW - sigh. I see that I will need stronger coffee prior to driving this year. I've sourced Thom Bargen's which I'm sure has at least twice the caffeine as Starbucks! Contemplating KW coilovers, but haven't figured out how to tell my wife its that or a cruise. We are vacationing in Victoria soon and I do hope to get over to HPA motorsports to see some of their latest project cars, including their 720 HP Golf R. I'll see if they take trade-ins. But my biggest change this year will be in attitude - I plan to have a ton of fun! But, I will leave you backyard mechanics with a question - do you have, or can you recommend a small body repair/painter? - I've got some minor work to clean the car up this summer.
  5. Would definitely have come to accept an award (since this doesn't happen very often). I kept checking the forum for details on when and where it was, but never saw anything. Did I miss the memo? Would have enjoyed the company as well. Beau, send me a message. I'm happy to pick it up and get it out of your storage room.
  6. But, just to finish the thought, I think the idea of giving the recipient the choice of trophy vs certificate/GC is a pretty good compromise to satisfy all of the people all of the time.
  7. Well, from a traditional standpoint, I think that 1st, 2nd and 3rd trophies could still be valid. They are intrinsic mementos of recognition of performance, and if you hold onto them long enough you may be able to prove to your teenager that you were actually good at something (once upon a time). I'm not sure about differentiating between 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Ask any 3rd place Olympian if they would trade their Bronze Medallion for a GC, and I think you might know the answer. However, you shouldn't be going far out of the way to deliver them either, provided each "winner" knows that they have a trophy coming. I still have all the trophies that I've collected over the years and don't plan to part with them until... well, the kids will need something to do when then wrap up the estate....
  8. At the end of the day, Beau was going to contact anyone who could bring us a new pottapotty. But, as yet unconfirmed if he was successful.
  9. Shawn, you are more than welcome to join me in the R32 - perhaps show me how it's supposed to be driven!....Allan
  10. The lady who came and did one event this year with the Hummer, served up a very good farmer sauage dog and she said she would be interested in coming back and that they were quite close by.
  11. My DSG reflash is causing me some minor problems and the supplier has asked for some code capture via VCDS Diagnostic Software to help fix them. Does anyone have one of Ross-Tech's VCDS cables for VW/AUDIs newer than 2004, that I might borrow for a few days? Thanks, Allan
  12. Renewed, please reserve 71 for Allan Ball, #1704 Thanks,
  13. Sounds like a great idea, Matt. Look forward to the first postings.
