Good question, we are getting close. As far as I know, the plan (weather permitting) is to roll:

Feb 12 & 13 -- Rolls
Feb 19 & 20 -- Rolls
Feb 26 & 27 -- Rolls
March 5 & 6 -- Spring Break, no rolls assuming some rolls have happened by now
March 12 & 13 -- Spring Break, no rolls assuming some rolls have happened by now
March 19 & 20 -- Rolls
March 26 & 27 -- Rolls
April 2 & 3 -- Rolls
April 9 & 10 -- Truck weekend
April 15 & 16 -- Raceday

So can anyone local say what the course conditions look like? Is there a decent possibility of actually rolling this weekend?

We currently aren't planning on having rolls during the spring break weekends.

Right now, it's snowing pretty hard, and there's already an inch on the ground, but it shouldn't stick around until the weekend. The forecast is clear, but it's likely going to be too cold to roll on Saturday. Rolls Sunday look much more likely, especially if the weather improves. (Also assuming enough teams get their buggies caped!)

And Kevin, CIA has first roll of the semester!

I mean, as a mechanic I don't have any problem with rolling even if the temperature is quite a bit below freezing, but the drivers, pushers, and support think otherwise. Also, with the caping sidewalk often covered in salt and melting ice, there aren't enough orgs caped for rolls to even happen.

Plus this way we just *might* have our new buggy ready for its debut next week!!! No guarantees, but it's certainly getting there.
