I think that the overage occurred before the glitch was fixed, and as far as I can tell that is the only run with an "extra" car. While we were designing the meet we discussed the maximum run size and decided that 10 cars is the practical maximum. We then chose to limit sign-ups to 8 so that we weren't at the maximum for every run. In past meets we have run 10 cars as a nominal, and that run does not include any areas that are prone to group separation, so you shouldn't have trouble with it.

Still hoping to make this event. Spinal surgery went well and now home but not allowed to do anything. BLT...no bending, no lifting and no twisting. Hard to follow!

Doc says no sports cars for at least a month. No driving for at least 2 - 3 weeks. Going to see Doc for second follow-up in a couple weeks. Will try to get answer from him then about traveling to Lexington.

If nothing else, the wife and I will still make the trip but in the truck. Hoping there will be some kind of activities at the Host Hotel. Of course, meeting and talking with members, cook-out and banquet will stay on my schedule along with viewing the car show.

Visiting nurse says Doc may not be too wild about the small car and a stick shift. Might have to drive 30-40 minutes, stop and take a break for 10-15 minutes.

Plan on taking the wife out for driving lessons in the Solstice as soon as I am allowed to be back in a vehicle.

Certainly hoping I am allowed to make this trip...

As one who is driving from northern Florida to Lexington in one sitting(minus lunch, dinner, and rest stops) I couldn't imagine how long that would take me to get there. GMaps says 11 hours 40 min!! I'm also in the boat of might teach my GF how to drive stick so I;m not doing the whole way.

Hope you can still make it either way seems fit!

Closing the book on 2017:

We finished with paid registrations for 165 cars and 269 people, but actual attendance was 157 cars and 257 people.
We had 3 participating vendors and another 3 that made contributions. As usual, DDM was the biggest in both participation and contribution.
Our contribution to Central Kentucky Riding for Hope is $9,000.

Our biggest loss resulted from the tours that had to be pre-paid, as we had the typical 20% no-show for runs and several of the people who did make the runs have failed to pay for them.

Thank you to everyone who came, without you there wouldn't have been an event.
