They don't really need to know how many cars there are going to be, they just need to test the ice depth around where they're going to drive and make sure it's definitely thick enough to support cars.

Has anyone gone yet?

There still hasn't been one yet. Still not thick enough. They said 2/8 isn't looking promising either. keep your fingers crossed!!

ran up with david this morning.
staties all over the place.
good thing i let him take the lead
ice racing is kinda nutty.
you seriously sit there and spin in 1st gear for a good 10 seconds before the car starts moving. i had no problem after getting into 2nd, but then i took out a snowbank, err, an icebank at the end of my run. i think everyone for some reason was looking in my direction and all i heard was a collective oooooh and then they all pointed and laughed. smashed up front bumper, tore out tsome vents and tabs and my fog light is dangling. it was a good time though. fastest lap was a 1:36 or something. i was pussy footing it and just wanted to get out of there alive.

staties came at the end. had to flex the strong arm of the law.

for those with no reading comprehension skills, i am accepting donations for a new mtech front and rear bumper, or the bumpers themselves. thanks!

Even though I told you to take the lead you never did

Sorry about your front end again. M-Tech FTW

Of course po-po came through at the end

Sorry no donation from me as I'm taking donations as well
