    OK sports fans…after a couple glitches we are FINALLY getting ready to open up the AutoX signup list.

    Everyone should have gotten the very detailed email from Patty last Friday but here it is again.

     

    2024 Nutmeg Miata Club Autocross –

    July 13, 2024 9am to 5pm
    Signup Starts May 1
    For Club Members Only

    Mark your calendars:
    This year’s date is July 13th

    The cost this year is $230 for club-members. Yes it has gone up.. ($20) The day is limited to 40 drivers.  LRP has raised their price, and we will provide lunch and drinks.

    We are at record high membership, last year some Miata owners joined the club specifically to attend this event, and so I hope that this year can be an all member event as well.

    So, let’s start off with…what is the Open AutoX?
    ·      A full day of getting to know your car, under controlled conditions… and finding YOUR limits as well.
    ·      Like previous years, this full-day event…9am-5pm. on the LRP FCP EURO PROVING GROUNDS will consist of:
    o   Practice sessions on the upper course
    o   practice sessions on the lower course
    o  2  solo timed laps on FULL COURSE (to qualify for the Shootout)
    o   And finally “fun runs” on the combined upper/lower course
    ·      In addition, a driving-instructor will be on-hand, lunch will be provided and trophies will be presented. By the end of the day you’ll have much more seat-time than a typical parking lot autoX event!

    Spectators are welcome to attend… … there is no cost to come and watch… you might even score a ride with one of the entrants or an instructor to get an idea of what this is all about. . If a spectator would care to join in the lunch, we will ask for a donation to cover the cost of lunch and let us know a few days ahead.. Watch this thread and / or the forums and emails for updates as the time approaches. I

    We’re offering slots to Nutmeg Miata Club members EXCLUSIVELY  Club members may pay for one spot each. If Club members don’t fill the event we open it up to other Miata drivers at a later date. We will start a waiting list as soon as it fills, which came in handy last year. But there are no guarantees.

    This is a Nutmeg Miata Club event, run by the club for its members and as such we do expect members to maintain their membership to participate in the club’s 2024 autocross event.

    This is a rain or shine event…NO REFUNDS!!…if you have to cancel, YOU will be responsible for making arrangements to sell your spot.  We can help with names off the waiting list, but ultimately, it will be up to you, the individual to get things sorted out.

     

    The Events page will open on the morning of May 1 for 40 NMC dues paid members only. Keith will set the limit to 40 and the webpage will automatically close when it reaches that number.  No payment will be due at signup.  the Treasurer will send the Clover link to ONLY those 40 members. there will be instructions for payment and the option will be there also for sending a check. there will be a time limit on making payment.

     

    this is something new we are trying…new technology…new Treasurer…new ideas.

     

    So starting May 1, log in to the events page and get on the list!!

     

     

    Any questions can be posted here in this thread.

    Once the list is full, you must post here in this thread if you did not get in so we can make sure that there is a ready list of names in case someone drops out.  there is NO automatic waiting list on the events page. That feature will be disabled only for this event, for the reasons stated above.

    So, it’s May 1st and no sign up option…

    What time will this be available as I stayed up to sign up and cannot?

    I don’t want to miss out with this new system and it’s not clear when sign-ups will start.

    For those looking for the sign up link.  The Sign ups can be found at the link below. Access is via the “events” page not the “forums” pages. I had to hunt a little to find it myself. See you there! https://nutmegmiata.org/events/nmc-lime-rock-park-auto-cross-2024/

    OK guys…the first post clearly stated…morning of May 1

     

    For MOST people that means…after sleeping and getting up in the MORNING…not 12:01…even though technically that is morning.

     

    Be reasonable here folks

    So Joe, what time in the morning? You did NOT specify…  So we are left to assume and hope to get a spot…

    Maybe next time, let’s set a start time and communicate that to the club members?

    Point taken …I just found out that the site will allow a specific start time to be programmed in. The few people that tried at ungodly early hour all are on the list.

     

    as of 11:30 there are 23 spots filled…about the same number as last year in the opening few hours.

    Reservation successful.  These events are always a lot of fun.  Finally have the Miata running right with the new computer (needed more ignition advance.)  Looking forward to having a great time, so long as I don’t blow up.  (Just kidding, I hope.)

    The payment link has not gone out yet….there are still 3 spots remaining to be filled.  Once that happens those folks will be notified.  That way the treasurer only does it ONCE.

    No need to post payment confirmation…the treasurer will know

     

    just got a message from one Clubmember…he only got the second of two messages….so check your spam folder!!

     

    sometimes emails with many recipients get flagged to spam

    Here is a reminder to all that are on the list for the autoX…your payment MUST be in by TUESDAY…that is the stated 7 calendar days for payment…you risk being dropped from the list if payment is not done in a timely manner.

    I know Mark…he and I frequently exchange texts and he has been a participant in our event in the past.

     

    As long as members fill out the spots, it will remain members only.  there are some folks out there that pay their dues just so that they can be in this event…then we never see them the rest of the year!!

    Thanks Joe for this information.

    Increasing NMC membership, then we need more exclusive members’ events like this.
