it is always the weekend after labor day. I believe, also picked that way to limit the number of inexperienced drivers that will show up

Yea that makes sense, sucks for those that can't make it and can actually drive, but well see what happens. Maybe I'll just skip class Friday again

I won't be attending the 8th meet this year, but I will be at the dragon this year though.
That sucks. The two years I've gone I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing you disappear after two turns. I'll miss that

Yeah, We drove from Toronto. Took about 12 hrs.

That's awesome. This is the best pic of Brandon's I have. It's a true GTS coupe, no SR5 here. Hopefully he/we will have it running before summer. It's been in pieces for a while now

Ah school is no excuse. Here's the recipe for dragon success while going to school. Take only M/W and T/Th classes. Then, at the beggining of the fall semester tell your professors that you will be missing that Thursday, and ask for any work in advance so you look like a responsible student. Suck it up and do the work early, or if there's a test try to take it early. Then you can travel to the dragon on Thursday so you have all Friday/Saturday at the dragon. That's what I did last year and it worked well

That's the way I feel about the miata. Granted it has ac, the suspension is stiff and it's pretty loud fr a 5 hour ride

So the I have sent emails to all the appropriate people, just awaiting responses.

It appears the 8thcivic.com Conquers the Dragon VIII in pretty much every car but the civic will be on this year.

Same as my e30. The ride there wasn't too bad. The ride back sucked, but it was worth it to have it there.
