Wow, your chapter had a pretty impressive turnout. CCA Golden Gate Chapter just ran an event and didn't have quite the turnout we'd hoped for.

sweet pic going down the corkscrew

yeah it was packed, quite a few people ended up on a waitlist. That was the last track school until the spring for us, so that creates a ton of interest. I assume you guys don't have quite the winter break we do.

The track is within 3 hours of DC, NYC and Philly, so you get multiple chapter attendance.

Ah, got it. That makes sense. Thunderhill is out by Sacramento, so I believe our folks reached out to the Sacramento chapter, but it was kinda late. This was our last track event for the year. I think we start up again around January.
