Well, the event is over and the folks of WMRC kept the thing running. You think I am exaggerating? Ask any of the crew that worked the weekend. Don't ever complain about how things are run at Mission with WMRC, because we really taught this group how to run a race day, marshaling speaking. Friday was, how do I put this delicately-a clusterfuck! But we put our heads together and the efficiency you saw on television was the result.
I was doing track control, talking to all the workers, excluding flaggers. I was supervising about 220 people. The flaggers had their separate channel and their own radio control. At WMRC, our radio protocol is second to none and our actives (handlers in AMA and FIM) really know how to clean up a crash. Goodness knows, we get enough experience. We all wore our WMRC hats (thanks Al) and our solidarity was noticed. We have been asked back for 2006 and can we please bring more people. Actually, they begged us to come back.
If you want to be included in our merry crew, our very well repected merry crew, come out to a practice or race day and learn what makes us so good.
I know it sounds like bragging, but we were consumate professionals in front of the world. I am very proud of the whole crew. I hope everyone had a good time. Debbie. PS, my hotel has free internet.
