Local forecast suggest 50% chance of rain, with rain likely post lunch time sunday with the morning being OK. Suppose to be clear from friday 11am to about noon on sunday. That's our internal company forecast, which we pay a service for. Not that they are any better than others. :lol:

Steve,

Am I safe in assuming walk-ins are OK for the event? I did not pre-register but decided to pull the Neon out of the back corner and come up after all.

What Chris said.... everyone is welcome. Reminds me of a funny scene from Blazin' Saddles.

Also... If anyone needs anything, please PM Nick or me as we will not be checking the forums.

Thanks everyone for coming out to the Mt Philo hill climb sponsored by Kale's Custom! I would also like to thank Long Trail, Otter Creek, Farrell distributing, and Baker distributing for donating the beverages for the weekend. A special thanks to all the workers who came out to volunteer in the cold and wet conditions. The drivers would never get a chance to drive without your generosity. I hope the drivers gave you enough entertain to make up for the weather. A big thanks to Nick and Steve for chairing the event. See you next year!

I think Philo is 5,246 from Start to Finish. How do you have it in the timing computer (actual feet, but, it rounds to miles on the printed results)? I see on the results that it states 1.0 miles. A mile is 5,280. Assuming we measured everything correctly, this new information could change a few things.

It is in the database as 1.01 miles based upon the average of readings that Jamie provided last year. On the results it only shows to the nearest tenth. Traditionally we called it 1.1 miles. So going down to 1.01 was a fairly big change. We actually updated all the hill lengths in the database last year. Your measurement comes out to 0.994 so we are talking about less then 2/100ths of a mile difference from the database and less 1/100th from the results. How did you get your length measurement. We are getting down to the point where the line you take makes a difference.
