Sorry I wasn't able to announce Sunday, I fell behind in the morning prep and with the rain coming down and a championship on the line I just could not get away from crew duties. I wanted to call Group 1 so bad too!!!!
I will tell you this much it is a lot harder to do then it looks/sounds. I hope I didn't batch it up too bad especially group 1 Sat. Joel did tell me the first one is the hardest and I can't agree with him more!!! I did feel a lot more comfortable announcing Group 5 I would like to think I got a pretty good handle for it now. Would love the opportunity to if nothing else assist next year if the spectators will tolerate me.
Ken I wanted to give a shout out to ya and thank you for bringing your car out and competing with us. If it helps I was the black Nissan, and at the time the caboose of the fright train that stormed by you out of turn 5 in the Sat. Race. Believe it or not you kicked open a huge door for me and really made our 3 car battle one of the "races of the day" It's always a pleasure to see old school races cars out on track, especially while I'm racing! It gives me a visual of what it was like back in the day!!!!
I also want to give a shout out and a huge THANK YOU to the folks that took over timing and scoring!!!! Jumping into it for the first time isn't easy and once you folks got a handle on it (didn't take long), your efforts were flawless!!!! Great job!!!! and once again Thank you!!!!
A huge Thank you!!!! goes out to Joel!!!! Talk about giving it everything you got. Not only organizing and running the show, Throw in announcing the whole weekend with the exception of the little that I did, and then M.C-ing the awards afterwards!!! Joel have a couple of beers, gargle some warm salt water, and no talking to Shmoo for 48 hours!!! (DOCTORS ORDERS)
I cannot forget the corner workers and all the volunteers that play a roll in making the weekend and/or season take place... HATS OFF TO ALL OF YOU!!! THANK YOU!!!!
Last and diffidently not least I wanted to give a special THANK YOU!!! to Garret Dunn. Having an other then desirable weekend to say the least, he was gracious enough to jump in and give me a huge helping hand tearing down my yard sale of a paddock and loading it up in the rain. Dude THANK YOU!!!! If you need a hand getting the # 36 ready for the A.R.R.C. you do not hesitate calling me!!!
