Some German beer will be available. And the kicker is only $10 TEN BUCKS! no preregistration necessary but cash only at the door please. I will also shoot out a Jibeset eblast to registered racers....RC

    Yummy and good price!

    Hope I won't need my N95 particulate mask in Vallejo! Westerly winds and smoke!

    Will they let me in if I'm wearing a kilt?

    I dunno. The V-Town locals will think you're killing all their cats.

    I think we need a point-by-point comparison of kilts vs. lederhosen. Fortunately someone wrote one:

    It's always fun figuring out rides by motorcar to and from Richmond and Vallejo. Here's my contribution: My Subaru will be in Richmond. After I retrieve my boat Sunday evening late afternoon at Brickyard I'll be taking my crew back to Vallejo. I'll have room for 2 more people and moderate gear bags. Lemme know if I can help with a ride for you. SDK 530 four one six 77 one five is my cel.

    Pipes I have none, but I could bring some extra iron ballast and a rock.

    Prudence tells me I shouldn't ask what the heck this means. Ah well. I've never listened to her anyway. Bring it...

    Wow, $1000 for getting kitted out in a kilt, who knew?

    That's upper-crust stuff, like a custom-make kilt, custom hose, a hand-made sporran and a wool Prince Charlie or Argyll jacket. You can doll yourself up and look pretty darned good for half of that, and if you just want to wear it casually, more like $400. If you're willing to wear an off-the shelf kilt, more like $250.
