2018 Race Info
« on: October 13, 2017, 10:30:18 am »
Hi,

When will you publish the 2018 race info? E.g. the date and so on. When will the registration open?

Best,
Mo

I'll have the website updated soon (I've been slammed at work for the past 2 months and the last thing I want to do is touch a pc when I get home. I was going to update the website last night but some local construction took out the neighborhood internet link, so I continued reading "world war z" instead.)

The PPA/PPM will be on Aug 18th and 19th, the 3rd Saturday of August.

I have a meeting next week with the registration company to finalize the opening date and will announce it soon. Due to the opening hour crush, we like to make sure that they don't have anybody else opening at the same time. (Otherwise bad things happen and we get a mess of timeouts.) We are aiming for March 10th.

Awesome, thank you :)

The registration will be first come, first serve?

Yes, entry will continue to be first come, first served.

Thankfully the qualification requirements have done a lot to slow things down. The race does not fill in hours like it did once upon a time. Now it is generally open for at least a week if not a month.
