The time says 7 pm. Should we be arriving before 7, ex. 6-6:30? Is there a cost? Thanks. -Adam G.

No cost. I'm sure Ian would appreciate help from anyone who wants to show up early.

Show up at 7 to warm up. We'll start racing at 7:15.

If anyone has a stopwatch they can bring, that would be appreciated.

I'll set up the oval at about 6:45. It's really only a 1 person job, but if you want to see how it is done so you can do it yourself next year (I'm more than happy to lend the kit), c'mon out.

It sure feels like cross weather.
