channel 3 on the Family Radio Service will work..also does anyone have a mic that work over a FM radio. then we all tune to that selected frequency.
I am *just now* checking into an AM transmitter (no license required) that will allow us all to tune in on our radios to hear the coordinator and it should easily cover the immediate area. The Portland, OR shop may be able to have everything together before I head down Friday.

If this turns out as a way to go, I'll coordinate with the head folks for the event.

If anyone else has the AM or FM transmitter (FCC part 15 unlicensed) I'd love to hear! Otherwise, I'm looking to buy one tomorrow.

Hey Race,

What time are you thinking of heading out from the BB toll plaza over to Ft Mason ? I'm heading over from Berkeley.

Vince
I'll vote for the early side.........7am? Personally, I'm at 580/Keller in Oakland, so it's not even 10 mins to get to the toll booths.

Anyone else interested can email me directly at [email protected]

Something to consider I found out about today from a guy I know on one of my racing forums. Seems they did the same thing (for maybe 30 cars) awhile back. Same "donation" to the HOA, off duty police, photographer in the boom truck (who he said had quite the time with that day's 30mph winds!).............and one of the residents wanted to leave.

I can get more details if necessary, but I thought I'd throw it out there as a contingency that might not have been covered.

Oy, that must have been interesting.. Hope the sport cars were not too low scraping down that hill!

We went on an impromptu Lombard attack with a big group of Minis once, no residents left and not too many cars broke us up, was a fun rambunctious run but not so professional.

Could one of you guys bump-up or sticky the official schedule for Sunday morning, please?
Good idea, my directions give the staging area at, and at 7:30 to meet the SFPD then we need to get going to Lombard by 8:30am.

What time do you want everyone checked into the staging area?

How long is the Lombard shoot expected to run?

How long under the Golden Gate Bridge?

Will we make it to Sausilito by 11:00am?

Yeah, if we get some firm times, I'll copy and post 'em in the Majestic Hotel lobby when I check-in on Saturday. Also, some attendees may need directions from the hotel to the assembly point, in the event folks become caught up in traffic. May I suggest a sticky posted here and we all can print it out to take with us...?
