Questions: What dates are the people wanting to hit the race interested in? I'd use this to put forth dates to the group.
Once we have this nailed down, I figured accommodations are next. I see the following categories of attendance and accommodations
- Interested in a place to sleep, must have private room that sleeps X (where if X > 2 mad props), willing to pay a few bucks for such an arrangement
- Above, but not willing to pay or are flexible on private part
- Interested in a floor/couch/public area and have a few bucks handy to throw in the pot
- Above, but not willing to pay
- Wanting third-party accommodations
I'd say any money raised would go to "scholarships" to increase attendance, or whatever the group decides. So, dates! then I'll go from there.
Wow, he's gone plaid
fail goes in, fail*gain comes out!

I can also sleep in my car, but I'd rather throw my money into the pot, and I don't wanna hassle with finding a room.

Are you bringing the eye patch?
That can be arranged.

Me? My emotional choice is Alonso. Is there a better driver out there when it comes to wringing the most out of a mediocre car? I think not. I think this season has shown that when Vettel has to actually race people, he's not as good as when he leads from the start. But if I have to be a realist, then I have to pick Hamilton for the championship. He is so much more mature this year than in the past. I almost hope he goes elsewhere for next year but still wins the championship for McLaren. Kind of a "stuff that in your pipe and smoke it" kinda moment.
So Mikey, Jeff, Ironbut, Mike Baker and others, what do you think?

I hope for not too many tactical errors for the second half ... I wish Button was in the fight as much as Hamilton, because I root for Jenson any time he gets a chance. Hamilton is just so fast sometimes.. More mature as you say for sure. I would not mind a Webber win - but I just don't think he has it at the sharp end of the season. I think that Kimi is an incredible driver - to step back in the car after years of rally - and push as hard as he is, just incredible, I just wish he was not such a dud to talk to (oh well).
I think that Red Bull will have the manufactures, Massa is giving very little to the team for points. But I would not look forward to Seb win again.
Anyway - 30days - good thing the Olympics are on...

I'll have to check to see if anyone's out that week at work.

I have to agree that Hamilton has come a long way and Button is doing exactly how I figured. I wouldn't be at all surprised if Louis started winning race after race in the second half of the season but I doubt it.
Red Bull is experiencing one of those slumps that all teams face. It's a real endorsement of the team that they're stayed on top so long.
Does Vettel need a superior ride to win? Is Webber driving way over his head?
I think if I had to pick a sympathetic fav, it would be the Aussie. When he was struggling just to finish in the points (pre Red Bull) he represented the drivers with the FIA looking out for their interests and pushing for better safety and common sense in rule changes. The other drivers have always shown that they respect him.
It could be Mark's last, best chance to win a championship. Is he is driving above his talent? Isn't that what it's all about. Overcoming physics with character!
