It's a two for one sale. :)

Yes, we did decide on Cecil being the monthly meet. Copied this from an earlier post and it said GTG. It's just a point series race.

I will be bringing my grill and setting up a few tents. So, if anybody would like to 'contribute' to the foods to be cooked, that'd be good.

FWIW two years ago (as far as camping) we went there Friday night and stayed til Sunday AM. I don't know how long the bathroom facilities are available though.

I'll be there. Hoping to have my car back from Anderson's in time to bring it. If not, I'll be in the ZR2. I can bring drinks, chips, or hotdogs/burgers along if that would help Chris.

Anyone have a trailer/tie down straps I can borrow to haul my "wannabe" down to 75/80?

Looking at the weather forecast, it almost looks identical to last year. :(

Monrovia Weekend Weather Forecast - weather.com

I spoke with Lisa at the track. They will post rain-outs on Facebook, Twitter, and on their website. We will keep this board and Facebook updated if there is a cancellation due to weather.

Reps, will also get an email in the event of a rain-out.

Let's cross our fingers folks.

Local weather stations are talking about closer to 60% chance of precip. Weather channel is also calling it. :( Keep your eyes open on here and Facebook for cancellation information.

Paulie,
As MAGNA's Race Director, can you tell us how we'll be running this event so there won't be a disagreement like last year? Who from MAGNA will be overseeing this at the track?

Radar is not looking too good...AccuWeather.com for Mt Airy, Md is now saying severe thunderstom warning until 10pm tonight 75+ % Monrovia, MD says until 1:15pm but Mt Airy and Monrovia are right next to each other? Getting a little dark and windy here in Sykesville, MD a little over 20 miles east of 75/80.

I'm glad they called it early enough for people to make that call.
