We are considering adding a few practice days for next year. Somewhere in the Elma area initially. Fee would be under $100, and it will be an insured event with legal road use. Gravel road, not a cow pasture...The first date could be on Jan 12th, the day of the banquet. Theory behind this is the Oregon and far north people could just make one trip for both practice and banquet. To me that seems like a lot in one day but who knows.
The next bright ideas would be a legit practice 2 weeks or so before DooWop and 2 weeks or so before Olympus. This gives enough time to get cars done and sorted. If a problem shows up it also gives time to make repairs and adjustments before DNFing an event. These would again be under or around $100 for the day and likely in Grays Harbor area.
This will only happen if there is enough interest. Please add your input towards this.
