Corrected Scott's name and class, which bumps him up a bit. Docs should update live.

Yea, I have an old laptop with a bad battery as well. We could probably plug it into the battery used for the timing gear. Hopefully it wouldn't drain it over the day.
Ideally we would still record on paper as a backup.

Trev, great pics thank you for taking the time during the races to take them.

As for computer power, the battery pack we run the timing gear from may get drained from running a laptop on, but I do have a booster pack that we can use for the timing gear, and my truch does have a power inverter, it should be at most (depends on if Lorrie is working on the event day) so between the two we should have enough juice to run a laptop.

I have a 12V to 120V 500W power inverter, so we could actually run it from anyone's car if we have a grounded extension cord.

I'm so thrilled with the turnout today and how smoothly the event went. Great, no wait, unbelievably great turnout, awesome volunteers, awesome participants, awesome day. And having Bimmercruise there as well, was a huge bonus!!!

Thank-you to everyone!

Plus you won! lol.... I would've been good for 2nd place on my last run if I didn't hit 2 cones. Anyone know which ones I hit?
It was a well run event though. Good job to everyone.

John, I think the inverter was Jon's. It worked well and it was a great idea to have a laptop there. Thanks again.

I second this question, should be tonnes of pics, and saw lots of video being taken as well!

Was amazing to see so many spectators watching the action, that fence line was packed 3 deep most of the event.

Yup, I got it back. I'll try to remember to bring my laptop next time, but it doesn't hurt if there's a backup. Also, we'll need to make sure we have Rich's extra battery pack to keep the laptop alive.

Shouldn't be a problem bringing the booster pack, just have to remember to keep it charged, it was fully draing by the end of the day

Yea, that was with Javier's low power laptop with a good battery. It's not very efficient going from 12VDC->120VAC->9VDC. I might have a 12VDC->9VDC transformer.
My laptop may last 15min on a full charge, so we'll have to make sure it stays powered. Even if most of the data is entered, I can always finish it up at home.

I didn't get too much sideway action, I think i need to bring a zoom lense to the next event. It's hard to capture anything unless I was closer to the action.

Teasers.
