Other Common Questions (updated as they are asked):
Q: Do I have to come for the entire week?
A: No. You can come for as many days as you’d like, but please help us by registering! You’ll get a goodie bag, badge, and be required to sign any waivers necessary if you’d like to participate in group events.
Q: I registered, but I didn’t receive a confirmation. Am I really registered?
A: The PayPal receipt email is currently the confirmation that you have paid and are registered. Please email [email protected]
if you did not receive your PayPal email to confirm payment was received.
Q: What is a “Run”?
A: A group of cars that drive a specific route through scenic or twisty roads. A cruise if you will. Some runs we have leaders called Road Captains, and a person designated at the back of the pack called a Sweep. The number in the group is limited for safety reasons. We also use 2-way radios to communicate turns and hazards. It is highly recommended you bring 2-way radios so you will know of any road hazards, issues, or up coming turns during the run. There will be a staging area where the group will line up and gather for a safety talk prior to the run. Self guided run sheets will also be available for other times.
Q: Will I need a Garmin or other GPS device?
A: It is not required, but it’s nice to have one just in case roads are closed at the last minute, or if you’d like to explore the area on your own.
Q: Do I have to sign up for an event?
A: No, but if you’d like to be part of a group event such as a tour or run, please do as space is limited and sometimes, tours or restaurants require payment in advance or number in the group in advance.
