Thank you again to all our volunteers and to our competitors who endured some exciting roads, only made more exciting by an epic rain/hail storm, and crazy construction (not there the day before!).  We will be contacting the winners in order to arrange delivery of their trophies.

We failed to mention at the Banquet that Jeremy and Chuck Pifko won our early-bird prize, and both will receive a Northern Loon Shirt.  If you didn’t buy a shirt, and would still like to, there are some in the shop!

Hello competitors, volunteers, and TSD enthusiasts!  Here are your preliminary results.  Competitors have until Tuesday at midnight to contest any of the scoring, and at that point these results will be made final.

We thoroughly regret not being able to hand out trophies at the banquet.  This is the most fun and rewarding part of organizing, but we did not want to make any mistakes as this was the first event we ran.  We will make arrangements with the winners to get their hardware to them.

All of the class and overall positions are based on AOT (Adjusted Overall Total).  Without further ado… here’s your (preliminary) winners!

Overall 1st Place: Car 1 – Keith Morison and Mark Ward

Overall 2nd Place: Car 2 – James Alison and Cindy Alison

Overall 3rd Place: Car 5 – Pete Chadwick and Chawna Imber
