I forgot to get a physical inventory of the vinyl numbers on hand, and half way through assigning numbers, I realized I didn't have enough and had to go scour local office supply stores for them...And the 3" letters are the biggest I could find in quantity.

I planned the last A & B combined session for the end of the day, assuming a handful of students would have left. Otherwise we'd be looking at 27 cars on the relatively short course.

The heat was oppressive...man had I scheduled this on any day within a 10 day range before or after except the Sunday before, it would have been anywhere between 10-20 degrees cooler. I've only been to one event hotter than his, and that was Buttonwillow 3 years ago in the middle of June. But at that one I only had to instruct, not instruct AND wrangle cats.

Crazy hot weather, hope y'all had fun.

Had a GREAT time. That Buttonwillow kicked my butt more for some reason- it was very hard to concentrate that weekend. We were checking the weather all week leading up to this event, and it kept saying Monday would be the hottest... and it was.
It was a lot of cars out there, but a few of us found a ton of open track after letting a few cars pass.

It was sure hot... I tried to stay in the room with air conditioning most of the time between sessions and that helped me manage the heat quite a bit Met some great people as an added bonus

This was my second school with the LA group and had a great time. My car, in the other hand, had a bit of a struggle with the heat... Had to pull back quite a few times due to the car overheating. Car is happily resting and recovering in the shade today.
