good, hope you can make it Donnie.
Everyone else..... anyone has a spare tranny to bring to this event to have on hand for donnie? Road Atlanta has a way of killing his tranny

You're not even kidding, two trannies two years in a row, geez. I have a TII back up trans if this one blows though. I would be taking it easy anyways, unfortunately I don't live just down the road from Road Atlanta anymore.

Donnie, I think as long as you don't do 5K clutch dumps in reverse you'll be ok

Brett we'll try not to reference anything from before your birth date when we make jokes.
Lets see, that means we can only go back to about 1990 or so right I'm not sure
how that will work with Ray, since he only clearly remembers things from before
1950

The more the merrier. No doubt a lonnnng haul from west cost/Canada. But, if you manage to get here we'll make room and probably even offer you a cold one or two.

A few others from CA and myself plan on coming down on Sunday, you should join us. I'll be in my FB this year but I'd love another ride in yours if you're willing.

This is gonna be the best DGRR vacation yet, lol. Great weekend of driving and conversing followed by a day full of historic Mazda's. Can't wait.

The tickets are coming! The tickets are coming!

Dear Mitty Ticket Purchaser,



Again let me thank you for purchasing tickets to the 2011 Mitty. This looks to be one of the best ever. Donít forget to tell your friends.



Just wanted to give you an update on the mailing of the tickets. Plans seem to be on target to mail them out the first week of April. Please feel free to contact me if you think yours are late arriving.



Weíre looking forward to having all of you with us this year. Again, if I can be of any assistance, please donít hesitate to contact me.

Games on! The DGRR crowd is organizing to come down Sunday to join us in
celebrating the Mitty. Phil has also gotten some great discounts for DGRR folks
that make the extra trip down. See the link in the DGRR section:

11. BrettLinton7- Fri,Sat,Sun- Camping turns 3,4,5 if the old guys let me
12. Duffman and his California friends
13. Kentetsu, Michigan Rotary God

Tim, how about if we buy some Yuengling or something like that and remove the labels, then give that stuff to those folks who show up in boingers?

They'll never know the difference and that might stretch the home brew supply into Sunday.

I can only carry down so much homebrew in my 7.

I plan on supplementing with some Coronas as well.

yep. will be good to see u guys again too. from what i've read, the caravan will be heading out no later than 6:30 to make the "record breaking parade lap", according to phil, that starts at 10am. don't know the current count yet but it'll probably be at least a 20 car caravan to road atl. haven't heard yet if there will be tickets to purchase or if it will be a pay at the gate thing.

That schedule Ray posted reminds me. I want to come in Thursday night. I wonder
if they will let me come in or not since I don't have a GRM experience ticket just the
infield camping and 3 day pass. I'll ask the mitty folks and get back with what I find
out.
