I very much want to go, I will have to let you know by this weekend, my finances are a lil low after the tax man decided I needed to pay him way too much money :P It sounds like it will be an awesome weekend :) If I do go, I will probably find a cheap arse hotel near you.

I would like to shoot a video of the 1st annual Albuquerque GTG,(as I will be a cinematography(sp?) minor next semester, hopefully) the trip down the days at the track and all the random shanagans(sp) in between. I would make it available to club members for a small price (basically my cost for the DVDís that it would be burned on 4 or 5 bucks).

Unfortunately my video camera is out of commission for the moment, its being repaired by Sony for a defect that developed with the lcd screen.

So I guess I will just wait and see if they ship it back to me before the trip, witch is doubtful. So if anyone has a camera that they would like to donate to the cause for a short wile that would be awesome, shoot me a PM.


Greg :D

Count me in.  In fact count my family in.  Carla got the time off, so she and Megan will be joining me.  I also planned on bringing my camcorder.

Rusty, way cool on the hotel listing, thanks!

I need a ride pleaseÖ.

Due to certain problems that have just come to light involving my family and my trip to Sedona Arizona, that I have scheduled right after the New Mexico GTG I will not be able to take my MKIV for the GTG. I would still like to attend if possible thatís why Iím posting. If it would not be too much trouble for some one to swing by and pick me up on their way thru the springs, Iím fully willing to chip in for travel expenses along the way.
Other wise it looks like I might have to sit this one out. :(

Thanks for reading
Greg

Pat -  Your can borrow my roofrack of you want. And Greg can just hold on up top and work on stabalizing the car by controlling the air flow over the roof. I am sure Greg will be up to try anything.. Well that is if he really wants to go. :P

Bummer, Greg - I was hoping to see the re-repo'ed Golf.  Glad you're coming down anyway... I like the "roof rack" idea - infinitely variable downforce... :lol:

Hey Rusty, I noticed that your post on the top of page 2 still showed me as a maybe.  I am a definite for coming and a spectator for the track day.  Though I could be talked into being a co-pilot for video for someone.
