If you’ve been on cmubuggy in the last 5 days since our new site debuted (and over 2,000 of you have), you’ve undoubtedly checked out its biggest new feature: the video library. For the launch we had 264 videos capturing buggy from the 1950’s through raceday 2009. Thanks to our partners in this project over at cmuTV, we have been able to share all of their terrific (and constantly improving) coverage from 2003 onward.
Part of that deal is that we keep each year’s races “in the vault” for a year while they sell DVDs which help to pay for the production. Well guess what folks, it’s been a year since raceday 2010. With no further ado, we give you …
This year’s installment comes with 40 videos including a great set of cmuTV-produced buggy promos composed of footage from rolls and set to kickin’ beats. Put a link to your favorite video on facebook and spread the word to folks that don’t yet know that all of this is online!
Other notes while I’ve got your attention:
- The Lead Truck Auction will end at 9pm tonight. Get in on the bidding. Riding in the lead truck is a great way to experience raceday, and a great way to support the BAA’s financial contribution to the dual jumbotrons we can no longer do without.
- Our Members-Only Raceday Preview has been getting rave reviews from our members. And I quote: “wow, loving it, awesome” and “its awesome … you should make sure more people read it bc i didnt even realize what i was missing.” Join or renew your membership here and forward us your confirmation email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- If you sent us an e-mail yesterday and didn’t get a response, try again today, we fixed a problem with the join@ address and weren’t sure how many people were affected.
- If you have emailed about other problems with the website and haven’t gotten a response, I’m really sorry. We’re a little behind here in headquarters. I’ll try to get everything fixed up before raceday. Oh shit, that’s the day after tomorrow.
