Dear Slant Sixers,

We will have an online/virtual version of our annual Slant Six Racer's Banquet this year. ANYONE is welcome to attend (not just racers) to see what this is all about, ask questions, etc.

If you have preferences about which date(s) would be best for you, please post them here. I would lean toward doing this Saturday March 5, or perhaps one Saturday the weekend before or after that one.

We will give out awards, honor new Hall of Fame inductees, and discuss the racing schedule and any possible rule changes for 2022.

Thanks very much and let the discussions begin!

Lou Madsen

UPDATE: I have set the date at Feb 26, 2022 at 3 PM. Details to follow in this thread.

Slant on,
Lou

March 5th is fine I think. I told Ryan to check his schedule and let you know. Rick

The 5th would be hard for me to attend. We have our biggest off road race of the year that day. The 2 saturdays before would be much better. But I will do my best to be on there whatever day works best for the most people. What time are you thinking?

Thanks for the additional info, folks.

We could do it in the evening if it is easier to include everyone. My guess it will take about 1.5 hours? Start at 6:30 so people can eat first?

Lou

Rob, might you be able to make it 2/19 or 2/26?

Thanks to all for your feedback! I like the discussion on the 2022 races too in that thread. Keep 'em coming.

Lou

19th I'm back in KY moving household goods.
26th I'm on a business trip between Fort Irwin, CA and Fort Lewis, WA.

I could maybe make the 26th work, but not the 19th.

Based on the responses here and other conversations I've had, should we go ahead and book Feb 26th? That looks like it would capture the most people and most of our key personnel (including hopefully Rob!). It turns out March 5 would be tough for me too...

Thanks,
Lou
