Thanks Bob, just thought I'd check. I'm a geeky scientist, what can I say?

NICE!

Will your Son be able to join you? I think it is spring break?

I don't have any real interest in organized racing but folks will appreciate your knowledge and IBX is about the closest we get to organised racing. It will be an honour just to ride with you and get skooled!

NOTE : If I am correct you will be required to be a NAPKA member to enter in the races ?????? That may have changed ????

Jack won't be coming with me as his school vacation is not until he week after.
It will be my honor to ride with you guys on the playa. It will be one more off the bucket list.
I will see about joining the NAPKA in the next week or so. It would be the right thing to do.
see you soon

The organization and manpower for NAPKA racing proved too much of a hurdle. The relay races were lots of fun and can be more of an organic event.

Ron absolutely. I wouldn't take anything for the memory of participating in thiose NAPKA races. I can go fast on the lakebed no problem, but efficiently making my way around the course was a whole different game. I have a huge amount of respect for those of you that made it look easy.

Well, in the "good news; bad news" segment I've just found out that my bride invited one of our nieces to stay with us Friday - Monday during IBX. So, for the second year running I will have to miss the raffle/dinner Friday night. Dang!

I'll drive down Monday and return Thursday, staying at the Primm Valley Resort. Blow baby blow!

Steve,

I'll hold your raffle tickets for your and then tell you if you have won.

I have done this for others over the past years.

Oddly, I win each year but they never do.

Weird.

Love the mention of the flag! I put together a long sectioned tube of PVC pipe that will go over a piece of rebar pounded into the lakebed for my Stars and Stripes. Also made up two pool-noodles wrapped in copious duct tape for visibility and stiffness that will get pounded in a few feet apart right near my flag. I absolutely LOVE seeing flags flapping in the beautiful wind high above the Playa. Swells my heart and clues me into wind direction and ferocity. :karate:

When I go on the website there are 2 options, but I don't see a link to view the designs?
Can someone point me to where you can see the shirt designs?
