Thanks for getting this going George. That is a great idea and it should help a lot of Chicago area folks get a start on the season.

When I was in the Navy at Great Lakes in 1970, Midwest Council used to do a similar thing and it was a great help to get newbees up to speed on their tech issues.

Everyone should keep in mind that almost all organizations will be requiring SNELL 2005 hemets this year. The 2010 helmets are out so there are a lot of good deals on 2005s.

Tech Day went well. We worked with about 15 cars and isssued 7 Annuals to those who rememberd to bring all their gear! One thing we found on several cars was race harnesses which were not correctly routed throught the hardware. I would encourage racers and inspectors alike to visit the web site of Simpson or other manufactures to see how it is done correctly. It is great to have the correct gear....but if it is not installed correctly......it can fail and or cause injury!
