What about having both events on back to back weekends so that it can be a 2 events with a camping trip in the middle? Idea


Thats a good idea too. One 1500 mile round trip instead of two.

Dear Santa,

All I want for Christmas is for all the syncronauts to be back together again.

At least have the two events far enough apart so more people can attend both.

Jeff told me that the syncro golf (It might not be a T3 but it's a syncro) will be for sale soon.

I asked him aboute German plates. He said the car was registered to him in Germany using his CA address. I would'nt want to have to see how the CHP felt about that myself.

The driver was Jeff Schwaia from Autostadt West. It still had european plates on it but I am sure that it is in the process, if not already legal- since he is a registered importer.

Who brought the Golf Country? I absolutely love those things!
Was it registered in the US? or Canada?

Ah, you were the one I (very briefly) spoke to as I rolled in after almost everyone had left on Sunday and followed out of there. You have an awesome van Smile.

Special thanks to Lance for giving me my first-ever Syncro ride... pure awesomeness!! Cool

And thank you for the fabulous trophy... Old Blue certainly enjoyed looking pretty for you all (and got filthy in the Sierras afterward). Very Happy

Currently still on the road back to AZ... will post SF pics and videos once I'm back home.

Great pics and videos and thank goodness I did not ask the question I wanted to. Found the answers on some of the videos. Perhaps Vanagonman should be introduced to Utilikilts.

Anyhow loved seeing all your skills and Marco Rolo and glad no one was hurt and you had great weather. Congrats on your inaugaural event, looks like a huge success because of lots of hard work and help.
