    Re: HoustonMile "V" Gathering

    Just got the kids to bed after quite the day.

    Here's the deal. Anyone that is going to be running & anyone that wants to have 100% chance to park in the pits, needs to be there @ 6am(ish) on Saturday. I believe Dave at Hennessey told me that we all can get in at that time as they will have control of the gate to let the racers in. He said they will let the rest of us in too. I'll follow up one more time about the exact time they hand the gate back to the airport police, but I think it was 6:15 or 6:30am. Once they hand the gate over, it closes. At that point, the only way to get your car in, is to bring it into the car show. The car show is on the other runway, so you'll have to walk over to pit row if you leave your car there. He did mention that the EXIT for the car show goes past the pits. So there would be "a chance" that you could join the gang, with car in hand, by entering at a later time as a show participant, then "exiting early" just to detour into pit row. Third choice is just to park in normal parking as a show spectator, walk in, and walk on over for a little smack talk...

    So... Three options:

    1. Get there @ 6-630ish to a sure shot with your car on pit row. (exact gate close time to follow)
    2. Come later with the crowd & have a "maybe" with you car on pit row, but a walk over for sure.
    3. Come later & park outside, walk in and join us.


    Since I will be bringing my V rather than my Denali, transport space is short. I'll bring a couple of chairs & a cooler with drinks & Ice. Secret is hookin us up on many items; he will set up a couple of 10x10 tents for shade & also have a generator and compressor there plus some tools, fans, cooler full of drinks for everyone and some other junk. Bring a chair or two to rest your dogs in between races. I would encourage all to join us, even if it's just you and nothing else. We'd really enjoy shootin the shot at the event. Should be a good time!

    I will have the Motorsport GoPro & a 50x 1080p Sony with tripod. Smokin Cache will be bringing another Motorsport GoPro too!

    So we'll volunteer the cameras for y'alls run, just bring a thumb drive if you want to take it with you. Otherwise, I'll bring the SDs I have & the laptop. We should be able to download the footage off the cards & burn DVDs or just upload it to youtube. Once the Footage is all in, we can make some cool stuff from it too.

    Either way, it's forming up to be a great time!

    BTW, Thanks in advance to Mark (Secret Weapon) for everything he is contributing to the event. He was talking catered affair if it weren't such a drag to get past the gates. Hats off to Mark!

    I will also have the 7D to try to get some nice snapshots during the early light. I am going to try to go thru tech Friday so I can take pics early on Saturday before the sun gets to high. The thumb drives will come in handy for any pics you may want. I will give to you in jpg tif or canon raw your pick.

    I am awaiting delivery of a trailer that I have been told there will be know issues getting the V onand secured. I will find out Thursdays evening. I learded the hard way never count on the car you are running to get you home after the race. You might get disappointed! If mine is driving away it may be available for those who may have issues.

    I have been watching the weather forecast daily for the last week and it is all over the place. One day sunny and the next day rainy. I really think they are just guessing. Will have to wait and see.

    Those that are running check your email. New tech sheets and gear forms were sent out yesterday I think. If your like me I only check my personal email about once every two weeks. Lucky I checked today.

    The boys at Gearhead Flicks have a link to prepay for them to video your car and your runs. You can also pay at the event if you wish. Options are nice.

    My V did not arrive this week as expected. Went by the dealer today..."hopefully by the middle of the week". How is it you can track an envelope across the globe but they cant track a car from MI to TX? I was hoping to show up early tomorrow. I'll swing by and meet everybody once yall are set up.
