That's exactly what I would have said but I gave up on that guy as I have a feeling he has an axe to grind with me. If I was as sloppy writing firmware as the subject wording, nothing I work on would work, so I expect clear and exact wording.

for example, clra and clr a mean two completely different things!

You seemed to have missed the point to my post. The topic can say whatever it wants to say. It's irrelevant to what i am saying. The point is that MarkD clearly said he is aware of all the angles and abreviations for May 2-4, May 24, yet he keeps on going off topic to make a ridiculous point of being or not being there on whatever day...like it matters. Simple logic is all it is.

With your pretzel logic, we may as well call it "beer weekend". Now I understand, it's some weekend near Victoria Day but not necessarily on May 24. But let's call it "May 24" How dense of me.

And Christmas is on Dec 19 for you right?

"beer weekend"? Is that what you call it? No since i am jewish Christmas still falls on Dec 25 even for the jewish folk beleive it or not. I hope that one day you will understand your dilemma of the May 24th holiday known as Victoria day.

I've been around for a long time I understand it clearly. May 24 was a Tuesday, I was driving on the big track at Mosport and there were no cars from that picture there. And that thread has very little to do with May 24.

I'm done.

That is what happened last time I was at one of the events you mentioned.

And here is another gem from around 2006: "I am going to suggest they put you back in the beginner's group because you don't heel and toe"
Yup I'm great in GT5.
The only problem is; that I can't get my knees to touch the ground....
