Wahoo, so now some details regarding the upcoming 2-day National Challenge event in Manchester, TN.
This year we’re doing the scheduling a little different, to accomodate people who are driving long distances. We will be starting the runs at noon on Saturday to give people a chance to make it in without waking up at the crack of dawn. Also that allows people time to eat a good lunch before getting out there. After 2 heats on Saturday, we will all gather at the official hotel (more on that later) for an evening social with some wings and drinks. Then there will be 1 heat on Sunday, so that everyone will have plenty of time to wrap up and head home.
We are going to make this a long track design to give everybody their money’s worth, and we will run it backwards on Sunday. We have a huge lot and we are going to take advantage of it!
Also, we are keeping the cost at the same as last year’s regardless of rising costs of other SCCA events, in light of what feels like a really tight year on people’s budgets.

The Ramada Inn

We highly recommend staying at the Ramada Inn, it is nice and clean and relatively inexpensive and we use the banquet room for our get-together. In the morning it has breakfast served there. Mention SCCA when you make your reservation to get the discount. Cost is $50 per room for 1 or 2 people. If you have more than that in one room, talk to ‘NISH’ or nancy and see what they will charge you. This includes an executive continental breakfast each morning. They have a beautiful breakfast buffet area that we are going to use Saturday night for eating, drinking and socializing.
$65 for both Saturday and Sunday
