  1. If you tried to register last night, you may have seen the old "No novices this event" verbiage. That is incorrect. There's no restriction on novices. I've fixed the website. I'm sorry about the confusion.
  2. I think from now on, we plan to default to using the north gate. We like that there are dedicated lanes for turning onto the access road from both directions, rather than having to slow down in a travel lane. It's probably safer for everyone.
  3. Just finished processing refunds from the weekend. With one known exception, I think everyone who needed a refund got one. If you needed a refund and didn't get one, please send an email to payments [at] azbrscca.org so I can follow up.
  4. As far as I know, we are still not allowing loaner helmets.
  5. It's not possible to double register for the same event unless you created two separate accounts. If you go into an event you're already registered for and register "again," it simply updates any changes you may have made to your original entry.
  6. It came to my attention that the covid supps said "no spectators." This restriction is outdated and I have updated the supps on the website accordingly.
  7. A couple reminders, since we run into this for every two day event. Both events are completely independent entries in our database. If you want to run both events, you need to register for each event separately. Please don't forget you need to pay twice if you register for both events. Reminder, there is no integration between the website and paypal, it's just a dumb link for you to send us money. So when you successfully pay and then come back to edit your entry, the website doesn't know you've already paid or how much. Because there's no integration, if you cancel your entry, you need to email someone (payments [at] azbrscca.org is best) in order to get a refund, if you qualify for a refund I can't remember the last time I actually denied someone a refund. But you have to email me or I don't know! No really, please email. Sending me a PM or a text message does not notify everyone who needs to know that you cancelled and makes it hard for me to collect that information.
  8. We're using the paved road again this month for both events. Check out the site page and scroll to "Alternate Access Gate (North Paddock Configuration)" for instructions on where to get in.
  9. We are confirmed for Marana again this month! And better news: the airport was very gracious with us and gave us Saturday as well as Sunday, so we'll have two events in order to make up for the missing July event. See you all there!
  10. I just finished issuing refunds to everyone. If you did not get a refund for some reason, please email me at: payments [at] azbrscca.org
  11. Cancelled due to flooding, this isn't a boating club.
  12. EVENT CANCELLED due to flooding. The site is unusable.
  13. We run rain or shine. (Snow is a no-go, yes, it's happened, no it won't happen tomorrow.) We will pause the event as necessary if lightning comes close to enough to create a safety issue. See you all out there!
  14. If you're coming to the event this weekend from Phoenix, be aware that I-10 westbound will be closed at the 202 (San Tan) freeway. https://ktar.com/story/4579884/broadway-curve-project-in-southeast-valley-starts-with-i-10-closure-friday/ Expect a long delay on your way back into the valley.
  15. I see two separate payments from you. I refunded one of them.
  16. Update: I'm now looking for someone who can take over the webmaster role from me on a full time/permanent basis, and not just an assistant.
  17. Event policies will be the same as in July: Registration opens on Friday July 16th at 7pm Online registration only, all entrants must prepay via PayPal - there will be no onsite registration or payments In order to provide a good experience for everyone, the entry cap will be 100 drivers Novices will be allowed Spectators will be allowed, but must stay in paddock or outside the iron fence - not allowed in grid, next to the equipment truck, etc. We will expand paddock to provide more space and we ask that you continue to keep your physical distance from others not in your household Masks: recommended for unvaccinated people Run/work: A works for B (comp runs only), C works for D (time only runs), vice versa - if you skip time only runs you can leave early, the website now reflects this correctly Bring way more water than you think you'll need, expect serious heat.
  18. Hi everyone, we secured Marana once again this month! New for this month, we will use a slightly different entrance. Check out the site page and scroll to "Alternate Access Gate (North Paddock Configuration)" for instructions on where to get in. See y'all there!
  19. Here's what I said for last event:
  20. We try to target about an hour per run group and usually run over slightly (reruns, worker changeover, etc.). Especially with the heat, we do not want to be running long since course workers will run out of water. In cooler months we're ok running longer groups, like 1.5 hours. Last event we were finishing teardown just before 2pm if I remember right, with the event wrapping up closer to 1pm. Maybe someone else remembers better than me though. I would guess A/B finished around 11:30am.
  21. Hi everyone, I'm looking for someone interested in volunteering some of their time to contribute to the website. Currently, it's just me doing the edits - that means the website has a bus factor of 1-2, depending on whether you want to count the previous webmaster (who is out of state and not contributing to the site). At a bare minimum, I'd like to show someone the absolute basics so that if I get hit on the head, someone else can take over and at least know how to make simple changes. Longer term, there is a possibility of taking over the webmaster role if I get tired of it, or if I decide I want to quit autocross and take up underwater basket weaving, etc. There are also some bigger projects I'd like to tackle, and I'll feel better about them if I have help with the coding, pull requests, etc. The website runs on a fairly standard basket of web technology (HTML, PHP, Javascript, etc.). You do not need to be an expert in any of this (I'm not!). And although I'd strongly prefer someone who writes code on a professional basis, or someone who contributes code to open source projects, the bare minimum qualification is someone who: knows what a for loop is and can write one it at least one coding language is a self starter, good at googling things and teaching themselves stuff (because, again, I'm not actually an expert and I'm ill equipped to teach you web tech) There is a possibility of trading website contributions in place of a work assignment at an event. If you're interested, please PM me!
  22. Yes. For clarity here is what I posted for the last event, with some edits to account for updated policies: Registration opens on Friday June 18th at 7pm Online registration only, all entrants must prepay via PayPal - there will be no onsite registration or payments In order to provide a good experience for everyone, the entry cap will be 100 drivers Novices will be allowed Spectators will be allowed, but must stay in paddock or outside the iron fence - not allowed in grid, next to the equipment truck, etc. We will expand paddock to provide more space and we ask that you continue to keep your physical distance from others not in your household Masks: recommended for unvaccinated people Run/work: A works for B (comp runs only), C works for D (time only runs), vice versa - if you skip time only runs you can leave early, the website now reflects this correctly The biggest change from last event is the entry cap, we didn't think through the initial number very well last time. We ended up settling at ~100 drivers last time, one of the largest events we've ever done and we still got the event done at a very reasonable time. That said, expect the next event to be a lot warmer and maybe even hot.
  23. Marana now confirmed for our next event! As I've warned previously, we will try to secure the site as often as we can this year, but it will be on a month to month basis and it could go away at any time. Everyone did a great job following the rules last month and keeping all trash secured, so thank you. Any trash or FOD we leave will make it harder to get any more dates. If you don't know what FOD is, you need to read up on the site rules! This is an active airport and we must strictly follow the rules in order to keep the site. See you all in a few weeks!
