I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for the Big White Rally. It was a new experience for me, both the snow/ice part and racing in Canada in general.
I don't know most of the volunteers, but I would like to thank every one of you for coming out and working in the ice and snow all weekend. You all were outstanding and everyone was full of good cheer even though it was below zero out. I would gush more about each volunteer's efforts, but I cannot say enough nice things. It was quite fantastic.
Thanks to Keith for answering a ton of my questions, both prior to the event and during it. Some of the CARS procedures are different from what I've experienced before, but between a careful perusal of the CARS rulebook, Keith's reminders, and Jimmy's prior experience racing in Canada, we managed to keep from running into any issues.
Special thanks to Jimmy Brandt for coming out to codrive for me again and for, um, "gently" reminding me to slow down and stop being a dunderhead. Jimmy's vast experience was definitely a major factor in our staying on the road.
I will be back. I'm not sure when - it was a long tow for me - but I'll see what I can do about coming back to this or perhaps going to other BC events.
