We are on the same page except for the departure time. I would like to meet at 3:30PM and leave by 4:00PM. Location for the meet up will be the large parking lot next to the Brookfields Restaurant (behind the Shell station) at the intersection of Eureka and I/80 in Roseville. Theres an In an Out Burger there, the Shell station is next door to it. Leaving at 4:00PM will give us a little head start on the traffic and we will get up there while its still light out. Plus, a little more time to mess around before the track day at a club or two.

If we can't coordinate then I'll see most you up there at the Super 8 in Fernley.

We will have a resident racer/instructor helping us pre sight the track and laying cones, probably Saturday morning at 8:00AM. We will have some gratis instruction available.

WE WILL BE PROVIDING A BBQ LUNCH WITH DRINKS.

Last chance to sign up, do it! See you in Reno, YEEEEHAAAAA!

Anyone have a camera with telephoto lens? I couldn't find one reasonable enough before this weekend. Otherwise I'll take shots with a standard 35MM. We will have a professional photographer at our Thill event.

Bring Extra Gas

For those of you going, bring extra gas. Reno does not have gas pumps.

Unfortunately I can't wait, I'm picking up Vinny's bike in Folsom at 3PM and then heading back to the meet up point and promptly leaving there by 4PM to get a head start on traffic, daylight, etc. Plus, I'm stopping at the Silver Legacy to have dinner before heading into Fernley. A group of us will be going to the Silver Legacy Buffet for dinner. I believe theres a street level parking lot next to Circus Circus where we can park our trailers, my brother works up there, I'll ask him. It would be great if you and Misti can join up from the start and join us for dinner. Too bad Misti didn't have those beautiful black Marvic Mags on her bike for this trackday,hehe.

Terry told me to leave the meet up point if he doesn't get there by 4PM. He will catch up to us in Reno for dinner, he won't be far behind. Besides, that will give me a little time to throw away some money.

Jon, go before or after the rush hour. Traffic there sucks - leave before 4pm or after 6:30pm. If anyone else cannot bail out of town early, get in touch and we'll meet up somewhere .. the second wave. I'm not planing on partying much that night. Early day on Saturday.

Where are people staying?? I called that Super8 but it didn't sound good. I had to get the last smoking room and they knew nothing of a Ducati club with group reservations??

We discussed organizing a group hotel/motel but honestly I dropped the ball on that deal. Its one thing that slipped through the cracks, I appologize for that. Alternative lodging would be the Best Western in Fernley. The "official" track site hotel was the Nugget in Sparks. I called there and was on hold for so long I hung up. Besides, its street parking lot for trailers seems to be quite a distance from the hotel.
