Tieton. I know it's early, but who has a shot at being there?

It's the right attitude you have.
Having only been to 2 events briefly, not having done much to assist, I will consider myself very fortunate to have
my car on the grid if I do.

I have just recently joined this forum and do not have a kart or an invitation. I hope I can spectate and/or help in some way. Hopefully there is a field or a place to park my RV for the weekend. Really looking forward to it.

It's great to see all the positive, flexible, helpful attitudes here. I think it was the "entitled" kind of attitudes that drove the Tieton organizers away from this forum in the past. It's such a simple concept: If a person doesn't like the way an event is run, they should create there own event. That would actually be a win-win!

Hi Randy
There is plenty of room in Tieton!
they didn't even put a dent in the available space.
There was a huge (no amenity) field where people camped with their Motor homes about two blocks from the Warehouse (CycleKart Central)and a nice little campground about one block away Where I think Dave was the only one there with his Teardrop (spectator with hopes of building)
I was at a Car Club friend s average about a mile away from the downtown with two other Teardrop friends that just came to came with me and see what this CycleKart thin was all about.
You have to remember Tieton is a seriously depresses Rural Farm town 18 miles outside of Yakima with a large Hispanic population, lots of possibilities and pretty laid back.
Just the perfect setting for an event of this nature.
There community futures, chamber of commerce, or whatever they call themselves down there, are more than happy to see "any" event that brings people and money to their small town.
I was there three time this past summer for various events.
Can't wait to go back!

I think the key is reaching out to the Gittreville Club organizers and asking them how you can help, both if you are in the races or didn't get the invite or kart not quite done, etc... last year I went as a volunteer and spectator, my cyclekart was not ready to go but I knew that it would be for the following year, I reached out to the Gittreville Club early on and offered to help volunteering for them. I have to say with that experience, though maybe not as fun as driving in the event it self, but it was a blast having a front row seat at the races on Sunday. AND I got to ask a lot of questions on building form the builders and drivers. I think it is important that the organizers of the event are able to participate in the events of their choosing and I think a key to this is having a number of committed volunteers. I was lucky enough to get an invitation this year, but feel as a new comer I still need to not forget that this event only works if a number of people put the time in to make event successful for all of those participating.

Oh I wish...I spent the last several weeks in a cast after falling on the ice, broke my wrist. I have a few more weeks to go and then back to business, I am going to take your advice and lower the backend a little. So I have a little work to do on it and then I am going to sneak it out on the street when the neighbors are not looking smiling smiley

Man o man Randy, you must be a youngster, I broke mine Christmas morning
the same way, i.e. on the ice. It's been seven weeks for mine and it's still sore
as hell. To sore in fact to drive with or even pickup a mug of coffee.
Hope yours heals better than mine and you get a chance to spend some
drive time in it before summer.

I went to last years as a spectator and it was a very fun event. My wife and I drove up and stayed at a Cozy 8 just outside of Yakima. We had a great place to setup our chairs and watch the show. Across from the park is a pastry shop that had some good eats and we stopped in a little mexican restaurant in Yakima that served some very good food at a reasonable price and judging by the crowds there many people knew about it. My kart is definitely not ready, so I plan on attending again kartless.
