So then surely if you are soooo safety minded then you must cut down that tree that is right next to that spot, so no buggies hit that too, right?

Come on, the jumbotron won't be IN the road, it will behind the bales, just like you guys and the trees. It's NOT a safety issue.

I respectfully disagree on the safety issue of putting a jumbotron right behind where 75% of all buggies crash. yes it may be a remote chance but placing a huge metal immovable object there is stupid. I have seen more rolls and races than most, and I have personally seen two buggies jump over the bales completely, with one of them nearly going down over into the hollow (there was talk of a snow fence retainer after this).

The guys who designed the vancouver luge course also thought the metal poles would be just fine only a few feet off the course.

Yes the primary reason I don't want it there is because that has been the Zoo's stronghold and traditional viewing spot for at least 27 years and probably a lot longer. I also think there are better spots.

Those who think the jumbotron right there will go over well with hundreds of zoo alums do not know the zoo well. Let's just say it might be difficult to see over our hats.

Alright everyone, don't burn yourself out early here. We've still got 17 days to steadily increase the fervor.

As Jess mentioned earlier in this thread, and as I'll reiterate, the placement is not set in stone. The final position will be wherever it is judged to improve the experience of everyone involved the most. As Marissa pointed out (thanks Marissa), the only reason there is going to be a jumbotron in the chute is because that was the request we heard louder than any other after last year. I promise it isn't a conspiracy to displace anyone. We really do appreciate that you guys brought this up in the forum though, that's what it's for. 3 years ago, sweepstakes would have made this well meaning decision in isolation and you guys would have been unhappy and stuck with it on raceday. Now we can work things out while there is time to do so.

With that in mind, can we keep the vituperative () nonsense to a minimum when it comes to tearing down volunteer efforts that are only happening to entertain you for free? Thanks. I'm not saying the conversation should stop just that the tone makes some people look like real "pompous ass, dick, jackass, etc."

Just want to say that the Zoo guys seem to embody the kind of hard core fans that buggy needs. They always show up and they always have a good time. We've been blessed with some amazing weather for the last couple of racedays, but I know if the weather is more, uh, 'traditional' the Zoo guys will be there anyway. It would be a shame to make them move, as I'm sure they'll be there even if it's a 45F Saturday, spitting rain after raining out on Friday, and they'll probably be exposing themselves to the cars trying to dry the course.

I do (greatly) appreciate the incredible efforts of the Buggy Alumni group and all, so I'm not trying to devalue their contributions, but if we have a couple of years of crap weather the casual folks will be more reluctant to come out, especially if they do a walk-by and there's nothing in the chute but a soggy jumbotron.

I agree that they should not be made to move and that there could be better, happier, solutions for everyone. However, since Sam (who is so much nicer than I am and I think a generally better person) runs this site completely of his own resources and puts in many hours moving all these projects forward, and given that SN has abandoned their other traditions of competitive teams and good carnival parties, if they expect the rest of us to care about this particular tradition, perhaps a more cooperative tone would be appropriate.

Really, though, would it be so hard to rig something up to get the cables up over the road, high enough that they would be safely above the course? I think that the best spot for the Jumbotron would be the inside of the chute, like halfway down, right before those couple of big trees.

Hey, back in 1974 KDR chowed into one of those trees.

(Direct quote from C. Brice circa 1993 when he was drunk putting up haybales and put one halfway up flagstaff on said tree)
