We are looking for some volunteers to help man the hospitality area in the pits, please PM Seesm - we want to make this a comfortable and welcoming event for people new to CGN and for long-time members alike. We need plenty of photographers too! GeoVario and GUNPAL will be providing laptops to access CGN and we may have some iPads there as well. There will be FREE FOOD for anyone in CGN apparel of any kind or anyone who brings a print screen of their gunpal homepage.

I'm not sure if I can make the AMA weekend, but I'll be riding with Mason the 19th of this month for a track day in preparation of the pro races. I'll know when the date gets closer for the pro weekend. Any of you track day riders want to come ride with us? Sign up for the track day here on April 19th,

if you're in the bay area & ride, you can go all around the track via motorcycle/sooter/whatever
it's a fun track to view the event in person as well
some aren't; fortunately infineon raceway aka sears point is certainly worth seeing @ least once in one's lifetime
the television coverage should be great as well so will record the event

sears is the best track on the west coast
nice facilities too
can't wait til race weekend
right on!!! calguns

Mstrty 04-06-2010 8:00 PM

Purple K 04-06-2010 8:32 PM

I think I'll go to the races for my Birthday!

s2000news 04-06-2010 9:06 PM

Hummm, may have to bring my SLR and see where I can help out.

Let me know who wants to go and I will get you on the list of guys who are coming with me and we can maybe pit together... Team CalGuns / GunPal...

Yes "Skkeeter" and (maybe Dodge) I will be riding it will be fun.. I need to get back up to speed fast. I could NOT be more pumped... There is ALOT of work to do prior to this weekend... Btw anyone know anyone who is a good painter to paint 2 sets of bodywork Blue to match the stock Yamah stuff? I have 1 new ste and one like new used set they need to match and be done fairly fast... PM Ben or I on that if you can... Thanks

btw yes as Ben said this may make TV... My name and the side of the bike made it the last 2 years... Even though I am new at this I was in the right place at the right time for TV... (Sometimes getting lapped pays) :P
But truly we can do some many great things talking about our rights and teaching people at the races about what is important to help the United States stay UNITED!!

jdberger 04-06-2010 9:24 PM

I'm gonna do my best to work the hospitality booth. This should be interesting. :)

Seesm 04-06-2010 9:45 PM

BWT we should try to call it a "rider nutrition" area and hang out for all of us CalGun buddies... They charge a crazy amount from what I hear for a "hospitality" area and yoru all my and Ben's friends... It is going to be FUN!!

Around the track I think Dodge means... To race this event you need a AMA Pro license. But on the 19th of this month if you want to ride ON the track. I can get you on a list to ride a track day there... $260 and it is big fun!! We can all pit together... (for trackday) I am SOOO pumped to get this going!!

trautert 04-06-2010 9:47 PM

Who's taking names for helpers? I think I can work the Saturday shift.

Understood about not actually racing :)

$260 per person? For the group?

Regulations such as catch cans, taped lenses, etc? My bike is a bit slllloooowwww....

AndrewMendez 04-06-2010 11:54 PM

When are you going to help out the SoCal CGN'ers?

artherd 04-07-2010 1:33 AM

Come up. This one's worth it.

Cool yeah there is a little you can do as far as take the fuse out fo your lights and tape over... (carefully so they are not all sticky after the day) A little safty wire is good but not needed for most track days. And you would want to catch any and all fluids so as to not make the track slippery for you and others. Pm with any specific questions for sure so I can help you out.

Tunis 04-07-2010 4:58 AM

Awesome! I won't be able to attend, but be sure to take lots of pics! Good luck, be safe and have fun! :thumbsup:

30rdMag 04-07-2010 8:02 AM

If I am not working that event with Dunlop. I can give a hand with the photographers part.
I have about 20k in photo gear. I work most races and take track pics all the time.

Make sure you dont get DQ'd for riding the track in the cut off time before the race. AMA had a rule that you couldnt ride the track some 30 days before a ama race. So be careful

not on the track, but yeah, all around the track; as there's no set area you're confined too

Evolution247 04-07-2010 9:49 AM

This is good stuff man. Craig's a good guy and a great rider. He'll represent the board to the fullest.

Knowing this, I just may need to check out the races (though I'm driving since I got a damn fix it ticket last year).

Don't forget to represent AFM too!;)

Sweet! It's great seeing my two favorite things together guns and fast motorcycles.

TTXGP
 
This will also be the debut of the North-American TTXGP, an all-electric motorcycle race. My company Zero Motorcycles will be racing and have a booth at the event. Why should you care? Because the Zero X makes for a bad-*** stealth hunting vehicle. Check the video...

high_revs 04-07-2010 12:43 PM

I'll see if I can go and volunteer Craig/Ben. Not sure yet for May. I'm not an DMG fan since they took over but the TTX racing sounds exciting after reading some articles on road racing world.

I used painterdude on ducati superbike board. i believe his url is http://finishingtouch4u.com

Here's what mine turned out to be. the bike looks hella faster than me.

Maybe my incentive by volunteering is I get some speed just being around ya, like maybe 8-10 seconds a lap at IR cuz I'm uberslow. LOL :p does osmosis work when you're 5-10 ft away?

If I can find a job prior, then have that job give me the time off work, I will come up. Looks like a cool little party though!

Exposed 04-07-2010 2:31 PM

Hmmmm... I may be interested in being a volunteer for this. Just need to make sure my schedule is clear.
