I would like to suggest we create Area Leaders, e.g., Fresno area, Sacto area etc, to coordinate just the people in their area that would minimize the confusion usually associated with the management of a large group of people. Once we establish the Area Leaders they can setup their area's meet location and time, as well as be the point person when it comes to providing event information and group communications. The Area Leaders will then coordinate with Region Leaders (North, Center and South) to meet up with the other regions and so on until we all meet in one location. An Area Leader can also be a Region Leader. Area leaders will be responsible for the movement, communication (telephone numbers etc), and accountability of their group so we don't lose anyone. Additionally, we can establish an overall leader (I recommend tribone) who will be the point person for coordinating all Area/Region Leaders and the dissemination of event information.

As part of the logistics of this endeavor I suggest we establish documented convoy routes with designated rest points for restroom breaks, gas, and eating facilities so people who fall behind can catch up using the establish routes and meeting points. Also, we should identify medical facilities along the route just in case of a medical emergency. I believe we can get all this info for free from AAA.

Just something to think about.

On the large convoy I can bring the rear. I know my way to the track.
This is the exact same thing that we did for the Stillen meet. Each area had team leaders (wearing red vests, or course) and some of us had the 2-way's.

That's where we always stop on our way to Texas. WE might have trouble with fuel if we don't.
Blythe it is!!!

We're probably going to have several meeting spots, for each zone that is.

I'm gonna nominate myself to be the Fresno team leader. I think I'm pretty good at organizing and whipping u boys into shape lemme know if anybody objects
LOL, jk jk

I second the motion to nominate Ronin as the videographer for the convoy!

I wanted to chime in on two things:
I hope we don't have to leave at 6am....I'm not a cheerful morning person!
And I'm glad u guys are thinking ahead about rest stops....when a girls gotta go, a girls gotta go!

We need to figure out what time the SoCal group is meeting at the Casino and leave based on that minus rest stops and fuel. Is the Fresno group willing to meet the NorCal group at Harris Ranch so we can roll together?

For those of us going to Super Chevy next month, we can check out the route and the stops so we can get a good idea of how to set everything up.

It also depends on whether there will be anything going on early in the day or if we want to get there late in the evening.

let's say we want to get there at 8 pm.

6 hours to get there from so cal
-2 hours to get there from bakersfield.
-2 more from fresno
-3 hours to scramento and bay area
-30 minutes gas up at blythe (a lot of cars to get gas).
That would mean that the sacramento group would have to leave at 6am.


I think we'll be fine if we get to pheonix at 9-10pm

it's 12 hours non stop from my house on the middle of the peninsula to firebird raceway. With stops for gas/food, I figure 5 or 6 is about right. Traffic will play a part also.

My question is.

Would Fresno people be willing to take the 41 south to I-5 and join at that intersection?

Would Modesto people be willing to take 32 West to I-5 South and meet up around los banos or wherever 152 meets I-5?

Sacramento people could probably just take I-5 all the way south.
