ETR TnT

Saturday we had a small TnT planned at Pelly State and it was a great day for it.  Only 35 or so people so we got to run 3 hours and work one.  But I was working as Safety Steward so I focused on the first few hours so Scott could leave and I could work the rest of the day.  I had a few issues since the kart was previously set up to run at Blytheville (concrete).  My first few runs I forgot I had removed my rear bar and I had no grip, especially in the front.  So I ran back over and installed the rar.  Vast improvement!  My times immediately improved by 4 seconds since I could turn now.  The only other adjustment I made was tire pressures.  After 7 or 8 runs I made my target of getting under 60 seconds so I quit and packed up so I could work.  The rest of the day went off without a hitch.  I did drive the Geo for a run and it was a blast - but the short wheelbase makes it tricky to keep pointed where you want to go if you come off the throttle.

Saturday evening the family was part of a demonstration for Taekwondo at the Kingsport mall.  They'd been practicing most nights during the week and it paid off with a great performance (4 actually). So overall a busy Saturday.
