Coasting is bad. You are on the gas or brake. No engine braking. Walk the course until you can draw a picture of it. Draw the picture. Find the key cones. Don't hit them. HAVE FUN!!!!

Walking the course was the best thing I did, also went out with the BMW instructor in his M5 was also very very helpful

walk the course until you can do it blindfolded. I get into 2nd gear and just stay there, no need to shift and it's better to keep 2 hands on the wheel at all times.

I will remember that and walking the course is exercise and I need to lose weight maybe pick up a couple tenths

Oh and take EVERYTHING out of the car - well anything that isn't strapped down anyway. Because it'll go flying when you take turns.

Food is getting sent this morning! You should have it at the hotel tomorrow by 5 at the latest.

If you have access to a grill, slowly heat up the ribs and sausage. For the meatballs either use a microwave (60% power until meat is warm) or a crock pot. Dump 1 jar of sauce on them and go at it. After time the sauce will take the flavor of the smoke, oh so yummy.
For the turkey, thaw it out, slice it, and then heat in a microwave at 60% power until warm. You won't believe how moist and tender it is.

I wish I could be there to prep and serve it up for you guys. I know you'll all enjoy it.

Stay safe and enjoy the weekend!
