60% chance of rain  I'm signed up for 3/26 and the art class. I'm thinking of paying for 3/27 also to get the feel of the track and new ride   ;D

I'm still tentative for next weekend.  I feel pretty good but I'm traveling for work at the end of the week, and I should be back for the weekend but I don't want to push it.   Sunday is also my dad's birthday and I think there's some event going on for that, so I have a better shot at Monday the 27th right now.  If I don't get there for next weekend, I will definitely sign up for at least one of the April 8/9 weekend dates.   Also going to sign up for the April 17th date (Monday) with EvolveGT.  I know a few guys who are going to that one - it's a good group.

I'm in LA and then Italy through Mid April, so will start the process a bit later. Do want to get the Daytona to Markbilt at some point, so let's discuss that process.

I'll be heading down to Millville a number of times in April and maybe even next weekend.  Once I get mine down there my trailer will be free, so I can take yours next trip and drop it off with Mark.  I've never been to a track day at Thunderbolt where Mark wasn't there, so it should be a piece of cake to drop off.

I'm out too - the forecast is still not good enough to blow off my family obligations. 

Don, be careful out there.  Without the Sun to warm the track on a cool day grip will be low.  I'm sure they will beat that into your heads over the PA though.

I'm going to sign up for the 8th or 9th with TPM.  Which day is everyone's preference?

You should be able to add a garage when you sign up for the day.  If you didn't then just email Barb, she will hook you up.   What's your preference for the April track days in two weeks, Saturday or Sunday?  Saturday's better for me, but I'm flexible.

Ok - I'm signed up for Saturday, April 8th.  Garage #120 (1st one next to the timing tower).  I will consider a last minute registration for the Sunday as well - if the weather looks great and I can swing it.

Terry - consider Saturday 4/22 @ lightning if you are not working.  I'd like to hit up that one, plus 4/24 or 4/25 on Thunderbolt.  This year they are offering EFP Gold insurance for $19 per track day.  It gets you 85% credit for cancelling anytime before check in - takes most of the worry out of registering ahead of time and getting bad weather.  With the reduced rates of being a Full Throttle member and registering at least two weeks in advance the $19 is a good deal.
