Fellow Nor'Easters,

I did not book this date because when I asked for a show of hands for attendance to get a definite head count for Feb 28th nobody responded. I thought people were put off by the price and decided not to attend.

I will see if the date is still open and ask for a show of hands again.

Pete, can you please edit the title of this thread so that it will get people's attention and let them know that the date is now tentative.

Re: February Event - Karting at GPNY

Sounds like a lot of fun! I'm in as long as the cost is reasonable. :taunt:

February is wide open for me right now. I'd be willing to take a day off and do this during a weekday if this gives us more access or time on the karting track.

Thank you for taking the lead on this!

Well, I just checked their website and the cost for group events start at $90/person This includes three races, a free drink and some kind of assorted appetizer. This seems VERY expensive. I am going to call and find out the cost without the drink and appetizer. We can always grab dinner and drinks afterwards somewhere else.

There is no way I can get out of work during the week, so I am going to try and book a Saturday or Sunday morning/afternoon.

I'll keep everyone posted on prices.

The other alternative is having the event at On Track Karting, which would be a lot less expensive, BUT it is a hike up to Wallingford, CT.

Re: February Event - Karting at GPNY

I was at GPNY last week, been there several times. Karts are great and so are the tracks, 90 is cheap. I can also get a bunch more people if needed, let me know if you need help organizing.

Actually $90 doesnt seem too bad to me for that package.

If you compare their prices to On Track, GPNY is way more expensive (On Track is $80 for 5 races). BUT, the track and overall facility is not as nice as GPNY.

Can you wear your own SA2000 helmet?

Yes, you can wear your own helmet.
You will also be required to wear a racing suit and a neck brace. So if you have that I would bring it.
I would also bring an extra shirt. It tends to get hot under those racing suites.

Sounds good, except for the weekend of Feb. 19-21. Are racing suits required, and if so do they offer loaners/rentals?
