On a serious note.
I want to remind everyone that is coming to MAKE SURE YOU GET APPROPRIATE OUT OF COUNTRY MEDICAL INSURANCE.
Joe had a $100,000 helicopter/hospital bill after our trip to T-Hill in October. Fortunately he had coverage thru BCAA which picked up the tab.
Absolutely get insurance. But a word of caution!
Be very sure that the disclosures you make to the questions asked by the insurer are completely accurate. Don’t rely on a broker to dismiss anything as “..oh that doesn’t matter”. The onus is on you to get it right.
Your disclosures will only be checked when/if you make a claim. At that point the insurance company is going to look very closely for any inaccuracy against your medical records (to which they have access), so that they can get out of paying.
If they find an inaccuracy – and it doesn’t have to have any relation to the injury you’re claiming – they will dismiss your claim.
Here is a link to an expose that was aired on CBC’s market place.

Somebody needs to let the local HMO know that a bunch of well insured Canadians are coming down for the weekend. I bet they will park the helicopter trackside just in case.
+1,000,000 for all out of country coverage. If you have a good group insurance policy through your employer call them to see if they will cover a potential crash on a track.
The HMO goes for the high mark on cost of care. BCAA adjusters negotiate it down. ICBC does the same.$70K for 3 days in hospital.......just x-rays, pain killers, and meals.....no surgery.
Hotel is booked, Super 8 is only 8-10 minutes down the road and $60/night. Not the nicest, but close and cheap.

Reminder about the potluck dinner on Saturday night. Motofit supplies BBQ chicken but riders need to bring a decent sized dish of some sort (appies, pasta, salads, veggies, desert) to be shared with everyone else.....maybe a portion for 15 or 20 people.
Make sure whatever you bring is good for consumption after a couple of days away and that you can prepare at the track. Obviously if you have an RV and a proper fridge you have more options. Since I will be driving down in my truck and only have a small cooler I will be bringing a box of two bite brownies.
Bring your own beverages (beer, wine, etc), cutlery and chairs.
Just got off the phone with Rob from Motofit. Here is the run down:
(1) He is still in the process of sorting out breakfast and lunch food service.
(2) The Ridge does not have running water or showers as of yet......so it will be portables just like Mission and ORP.
(3) The Ridge currently has 50,000 square feet of paved paddock and they are hoping to lay another 110,000 square feet next week if the weather co-operates. If they are able to get it done we will have enough space for everyone to be on pavement. If, however, they don't get it done as hoped for the people from Motofit are going to enforce pit set up where priority is given to bikes being on pavement......all trucks, trailers, camping, etc will be OFF pavement to allow bikes and easy ups to be ON pavement. If the paving does not get done and bikes are given priority on the pavement it may still be worthwhile to bring a couple sheets of plywood to set up your chairs and camping gear on.
Once I know more I will post it in the thread.
Just one more thing, if you could speak to Rob about the weather, personally I'm a fan of 20-22 degree's, anything close would be just swell, thanks!
