Also if there's enough interest we could consider holding the Eliminator 2 day event at the end of the year?

I know......I'm never happy :?

Well this thread was chopped off another - originally it was more a question directed at Bruce. Wayne then turned it into a poll......which is somewhat irrelevant now since we agreed to hold the Eliminator when we had a meeting.......

But to answer your question - it's a 2 day elimination style event. Here's a cut and past from my description last year........

How the event works:

Saturday will be run almost like a regular event with one major exception. The morning and afternoon will be scored as two separate events. Pizza will be served for lunch (I think we charged an extra $5 or something last year?) between the two events at which point we will change the course. Don't worry - you don't have to learn a whole new course, but we will change the way it looks. Same pattern, but some changes.... a square corner might become a round corner or a slalom might become a bus stop etc.

Sunday morning will be the third event (different course than Saturday).

Sunday afternoon will be the Eliminator rounds. How many rounds is time and attendance dependent, but basically your standings from the 3 events (using the best 2 of 3 scores) will determine your position in the shootout.

In the shootout rounds two drivers are paired and race against each other (no - not at the same time, but back to back). The winner advances and the loser drops to the next bracket. This goes through several rounds until we are left with a winner for each group.

Basically win or lose everyone will get 6-10 runs per day depending on attendance, time, natural disasters etc.
