:mad: I just about had a good list done when I timed out with my provider :darn:
I will work offline to recreate what I had and then paste it back up here. Grrrrr.

OH! Cool :thumb: . I was able to save it somehow. Anyway, here is what I have so far:

I'll work off what you guys have started:
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

They will provide:
  • Safety Barriers
    • Orange fence or barrier tape to separate track and pit area from spectator area (plus straw bales?)
    • Straw bales to line track on sides (and down the middle?)
  • Security
  • Track prep and maintenance
    • Have tractors available during race to groom track and to pull out stuck rigs
    • Tow strap/cable/chain for pulling out stuck rigs
    • Water truck
    • Bleachers/Spectator area
    • Water available (pumps, hoses?)
  • Emergency personell
    • Fire truck (with firemen :thumb: )
    • Ambulance with EMT's
  • Stop watches
  • Generator for running the starting lights, etc.
  • Wrist bands for drivers and pit crew
  • Concessions
  • Rest rooms (on time!)
  • Insurance
  • Paperwork
    • Waivers
    • Entrance forms
    • Copies of rules
  • Point of Contacts for the entrants prior to the race
  • Extra volunteers to help put the races on.
    • Flaggers
    • Timers
    • Parking attendants/gate fee takers
We will provide:

Core manpower for race setup:

  • Judges (?)
  • Officials
  • Tech Inspectors
  • Rules
  • Starting lights (?)
  • Announcer (and announcer equipment?)
  • Design specs of track
  • Payback scale to racers
  • Entry fee collector
    • Question: Do the racers pay to get in?
    • Question: Do pit crew pay to get in? (I say yes)
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
  • Collecting the money from spectators? Weiser?
  • Collecting entry fees and the payout of the racers?
    • Question: Can we collect entry fees at time of tech inspection?
    • Question: If Weiser is going to hand out trophys again then the payout could happen at the same time but the money controlled by us?
    • Question: If the crowd is as big as they think it will be could we ask for a bigger payback? This is usually done by having a guaranteed set amount for the top three places in each class PLUS the usual payback purse.

I forgot to add: Looks like we are unable to get the lights we mentioned at the meeting. Can we come up with a set of starting lights as someone suggested? I mean, like build a set?

We can build a set of starting lights but will need to use stop watches for time.
