The Father’s Day Auto- cross was surprisingly well attended. Fifty-eight drivers came out to enjoy a day at Autocross. Some dads showed up with their sons or daughters and they autocrossed for free. What a way to spend the day with their dad, letting him do what he loves to do. Overall, it was a great day. The
 weather was beautiful, the event ran smoothly and we were done early enough so everybody could go home and enjoy time with their fam- ily. The only people who did not have a good morning were the guys yelling at us from the balcony of their hotel room as we woke them up. They should thank us because it was al- most time to check out.
Anyway, due to problems beyond our control we had to set the course up the morning of the event. It has been very interesting having events at the coliseum as we have had to deal with a lot of Murphy’s Law type incidences. However, we have gotten lucky and managed to deal with everything in a positive way. So, the morning of the event Russell Bertels, one of the many happy Westchester members who come down to autocross, and Graham Mingst set out to design the obstacle course around the garbage left on the lot from the previous night’s car show. Bill Riehl, another early rising Westchester member also helped out by skill- fully sweeping the garbage off the course with the empty pizza boxes that were considerately left on the lot for what I can only assume was for just that purpose. The course was designed and redesigned as the garbage was shuffled around. I am sure there were others who helped when they got there but unfortunately, I don’t remember who they were. So, I would like to thank everybody who pitched in. There is never a lack of people willing to lend a hand and I think them for their support.
Fifty-eight drivers competed for the fastest time of the day or their fastest personal time
