Road to Lincoln 2012

Ok, never too early to start planning for next season. 2012 Tour and Pro-Solo dates have been announced. One thing I really like is that they are lumping the Tours and Pro-solo's together more and more. Not only in May over in Lincoln, but also now in Blytheville in June! This will save people some travel expenses (namely fuel) and allow them to compete in more events hopefully. Also, the Tour is coming back to Grissom Aeroplex in Peru Indiana! This is good news for us as it is only a 3 hour drive for most of us. I plan on hitting the "Spring Nationals" at Lincoln in May, "Summer Nationals" in Blytheville in June, Peru Tour in early August, the Nat Championships in Lincoln early September, and finally the Blytheville Tour again in late October. What are your guys' National plans for next year?

I am strongly committed to doing two pro solos and two tours. Either the Lincoln combo, or the Blytheville combo, the Peru tour/Toledo tour. This will allow me to be "invited" to the Lincoln Pro finale and attend Nat'ls. This year, the Pro Solo will be immediately followed by STR the first two days of the Nat'l championships which will allow for four days of running in five starting over the course of the weekend. Nearly ideal.

If I get a job by the time I graduate, I'll be attending at least Peru. Assuming I can figure my car out (read: not spin every other run).

Excellent, yeah with Peru being so close we are fortunate. Peru will be a good opportunity for people in the CCSCC and in the CIR region to get a taste of the Nationals experience that haven't yet. We'll hopefully get a big group together for Peru.

Clark, glad to hear you plan on doing some Pro's next year. They are so much fun!

...It looks like the 4th is a Tuesday which makes it nearly impossible for me to make it to Lincoln if STR runs the first two days.

I at least plan to do Peru 8/4 to qualify and possibly Blytheville on 6/10. And hopefully the divisionals in St Louis and Milwaukee if they still exist. But it will take a lot of blind luck and a little bit of creatively orchestrated unexcused absences to get away from class for nationals. Crap.

I'd bet pretty large the Nat'l schedule will reverse with STR running Tues./Wed. during the week which means if Pro Solo is 9/1 and 9/2, we'd have four days of running over five with Monday off. Pretty sweet.

I hope to make it to a few of these events. I've never experienced a National event before and it seems it would be a lot of fun even if I don't have the right car for my class.
